Sweet Catomine is Morning Line Choice in Pool Two of Oaks Future Wager

Sweet Catomine, the champion 2-year-old filly of 2004 and winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), has been installed as a solid 4-1 favorite in the second of three pools in Churchill Downs' 2005 Kentucky Oaks Future Wager, which begins its March 10-13 run on Thursday (March 10).

The Julio Canani-trained daughter of Storm Cat was a narrow favorite in February's first pool of the Oaks Future Wager. Sweet Catomine and the mutuel field, a wagering interest that included all 3-year-old fillies other than the individual fillies in Pool 1, both closed at odds of 9-2 in the earlier pool, but slightly more money had been wagered on the champion.

The mutuel field and Stonerside Farm's Sis City, a 16-length winner in the Davona Dale (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park in her most recent start, have been installed as the 6-1 co-second choices in Pool 2 morning line by Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia.

There are nine new wagering interests in Pool 2 that include Amazing Buy, Eyes On Eddy, Isabell's Shoes, Letgomyecho, Little Money Down, Memorette, Satin Kiss, She Sings and Toll Taker. Godolphin's Satin Kiss is not nominated to the Kentucky Oaks, but could be made eligible for a supplemental fee of $25,000. She is scheduled to run March 10 in the UAE Oaks at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse in Dubai.

Betting on KOFW Pool 2 opens at Noon (all times EST) March 10 and continues through 6:30 p.m. March 13. The wager runs concurrently with the Kentucky Derby Future Wager, but that wager is scheduled to close 30 minutes earlier at 6 p.m.

A total of $69,928 was wagered during Pool 1 of the Oaks Future Wager in February, which was the largest total for a single pool since the Oaks Wager adopted its current three-pool format last year. The record for a single Oaks Future pool is the $117,368 wagered in the single February pool conducted in the first year of the bet in 2003.
