From Churchill Downs
Racing fans across North America responded to a dazzling victory by Point Given in the Santa Anita Derby by making the son of 1995 Kentucky Derby winner Thunder Gulch a strong favorite heading into the final day of betting in the final pool of Churchill Downs' 2001 Kentucky Derby Future Wager.

Kentucky Derby fans pumped $176,453 into the third and final pool of the 2001 Future Wager on Saturday and pushed total wagering for this year's three pools past the $1 million mark for the second consecutive year.

Heading into Sunday's final hours of the Pool 3, wagering on the pool stood at $270,035 and total wagering for this year's three pools stood at $1,153,811. The three-day total is just $5,108 shy of the record $1,158,919 wagered in all three Kentucky Derby Future Wager pools in 2000.
