With the 2011 debut of unbeaten champion Uncle Mo   set for this weekend, a strong effort could push the son of Indian Charlie into the position of overall favorite in Pool 2 of the Churchill Downs’ 2011 Kentucky Derby Future Wager, which opens its three-day run at noon EST on Friday, March 11.

Churchill Downs' oddsmaker Mike Battaglia listed the mutuel field, which includes all 3-year-olds other than the pool’s 23 individual horses, as the 3-1 favorite and Uncle Mo as a close 7-2 second choice. Next on the morning line are Fountain of Youth (gr. II) winner Soldat   at 8-1; San Vicente (gr. II) winner The Factor   and Holy Bull (gr. III) winner Dialed In  , both at 10-1; and unbeaten Brethren   and Remsen (gr. II) winner To Honor and Serve   are both listed at 15-1.
Uncle Mo was the overall second choice at 7-2 in February’s opening pool, but was a clear favorite among its 23 individual horses. The mutuel field was the 2-1 overall favorite at 2-1 in the Feb. 18-20 pool. “All others” has been the KDFW Pool 1 choice every year since the bet’s debut in 1999.
Pool 2 betting concludes at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. The pool will end 30 minutes prior to the close of betting on the companion Kentucky Oaks Future Wager, which also opens Friday at noon. KDFW Pool 2 mutuel payouts on Kentucky Derby Day, May 7, will be determined by the odds in place at Sunday’s close of betting at North American racetracks and off-track betting facilities and TwinSpires.com and other advance deposit wagering outlets.
There are four new betting interests in KDFW Pool 2. The new horses are Archarcharch  , winner of the Southwest (gr. III) at Oaklawn Park; Southwest third-place finisher Elite Alex; Runflatout, who is scheduled to run this weekend in the San Felipe; and San Vicente runner-up Sway Away. Horses that were part of KDFW Pool 1 that did not return in this week’s pool were Clubhouse Ride, Decisive Moment, Indian Winter, and Tiz Blessed.
Information on the Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Derby Future Wager—including real-time KDFW Pool 1 odds—is available at the official event Web site at www.KentuckyDerby.com. 
One more Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool will be conducted before the May 7 Kentucky Derby on The final pool will run from April 1-3.
