With the Kentucky Derby still 23 weeks away, the pari-mutuel field of “All Other 3-Year-Old Colts and Geldings” closed as the 6-5 favorite in Pool 1 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW) and the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner Game Winner was the clear 5-1 second choice.

Other horses that attracted the most interest from bettors were impressive debut winner Coliseum (10-1), unbeaten Best Pal (GII) winner Instagrand (10-1), Street Sense winner Improbable (17-1) and Champagne (GI) runner-up Code of Honor (18-1). Game Winner, Coliseum and Improbable are trained by five-time Kentucky Derby winner Bob Baffert.

Total handle for the Nov. 22-25 KDFW pool – the first of four scheduled wagering pools in advance of the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (GI) on Saturday, May 4 – was $258,389 ($186,470 in the Win pool and $71,919 in Exactas), which was a 3.2% increase from last year’s $250,259 ($177,103 in the Win pool and $73,156 in Exactas).

Inaugurated in 1999, the Kentucky Derby Future Wager has been offered for a 21st consecutive year, but this marks only the sixth time that Churchill Downs has hosted a KDFW pool in November on closing weekend of its Fall Meet.
