The second of three pools of Churchill Downs' 2007 Kentucky Derby Future Wager ended on Sunday with 'all others' a narrow favorite in a scramble with reigning 2-year-old champion Street Sense, Remsen (gr. II) and Holy Bull (gr. III) winner Nobiz Like Shobiz, and Louisiana Derby (gr. II) winner Circular Quay.

The mutuel field, the betting interest that represented all 3-year-olds other than the 23 individual horses in pool 2, emerged as a slight 6-1 favorite when betting on the four-day pool concluded at racetracks and off-track wagering outlets across North America at 6 p.m. (EDT) Sunday evening.

The battle for second choice – and favored individual horse – went to Elizabeth Valando’s Nobiz Like Shobiz. The son of Albert the Great   earned strong support throughout KDFW pool 2 despite his loss as a heavy favorite in last week’s Fountain of Youth (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park. Nobiz Like Shobiz closed at odds of 8-1, as did James Tafel’s 2-year-old champion and Bessemer Trust Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Street Sense and Michael and Doreen Tabor’s Circular Quay, the impressive winner of Saturday’s $600,000 Louisiana Derby.  But the Barclay Tagg-trained Nobiz Like Shobiz closed at final odds of $8.00-to-1 to edge Street Sense ($8.10-to-1) and Circular Quay ($8.80-to-1).

Total wagering in the pool was $379,613. The third and final KDFW pool of 2007 is scheduled for April 12-15. The Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) is May 5 at Churchill Downs.

Other horses that attracted strong support during pool 2 included WinStar Farm LLC and Maverick Racing's Any Given Saturday (11-1), who is scheduled to run next week in the Tampa Bay Derby (gr. III); J. Paul Reddam’s Great Hunter (11-1), winner of the Robert B. Lewis (gr. II) at Santa Anita; Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor’s Sham Stakes (gr. III) winner Ravel (11-1); and James Scatuorchio and Michael Tabor’s Scat Daddy (16-1), winner of the Fountain of Youth (gr. II).
