Did you miss the Derby future Wager pool last month? No need to worry, Churchill Downs will hold the second of three future wager pools this weekend, opening at noon on Friday and running until 6:00 PM Sunday.
Also available this weekend is the Kentucky Oaks future wager pool. This will be the only offered Oaks pool. It will also open at noon Friday, but will close at 6:30 PM Sunday.
In each pool, there will be 23 individual betting interests or horses to choose and an “all others” option. All wagers must be to win and at a minimum of $2. Exacta wagering will also be offered on both pools. Unless the Derby or Oaks does not run, no refunds will be offered for horses that do not make the race.
To place your wager, visit Trackside at Churchill Downs (Churchill’s simulcasting area on the Third Floor) or wager through your online wagering account. Churchill Downs will post real-time odds throughout the weekend. Handicapping materials are available through Brisnet.
