2013 Kentucky Derby Future Pool #1 is this weekend

The first of three 2013 Kentucky Derby Future Pool opens its three day run this weekend.  Champion Shanghai Bobby and rising star Violence are expected to vie for the role of individual favorite, but Churchill Downs Racetrack oddsmaker Mike Battaglia believes the “All Others”  betting interest will be a strong fans’ choice in the first of three pools of the 2013 Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW) which opens a three-day run on Friday, Feb. 8.

Also known as the mutuel field, “All Others” includes all the 3-year-old Thoroughbreds other than the 23 individual horses listed among Pool 1’s 24 betting interests. This first KDFW pool, h will open at noon (all times Eastern) on Friday and conclude at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10.

The Kentucky Derby Future Wager offers racing fans an opportunity to bet on potential contenders for the famed “Run for the Roses” well in advance of the race at odds that could be significantly more attractive than the prices available Kentucky Derby Day. The $2 million-guaranteed Kentucky Derby  will be run for the 139th consecutive year at Churchill Downs on Saturday, May 4.  The winners of the 2013 Kentucky Derby prep races many times change the odds as the  Future Pools continue.

The popular “All Others” bet has been the Pool 1 favorite in each of the 14 years since the Derby Future bet was introduced in 1999.

Each Kentucky Derby Future pool offers $2 minimum win betting and exacta wagering, which is available in the form of $2 minimum straight exacta bets or $1-minimum exacta boxes and part-wheels. No scratches or betting refunds are permitted in the Derby Future Wager, but betting on an individual horse will be suspended immediately if Churchill Downs determines that an injury, illness or other circumstance revealed during the pool would prevent that horse from competing in the Kentucky Derby.
