II) winner Candy Boy at 12-1; 2012 champion 2-year-old male Shared Belief at 15-1; two-time winner Bayern and multiple graded stakes winner Tapiture, both at 17-1; and Southwest Stakes (gr. III) victor Strong Mandate   at 18-1.
 
Pool 3 closed at the start of the Gotham Stakes (gr. II) at 4:18 p.m. EST, at Aqueduct Racetrack.  Gotham winner Samraat closed at odds of 30-1.
 
The lone Kentucky Oaks Future Wager also closed March 1.
