A 9 1/2-length romp by Winchell Thoroughbreds' Untapable in last week's Rachel Alexandra (gr. III) at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots made her the favorite in this year's Churchill Downs 2014 Kentucky Oaks Future Wager.

The 140th running of the $1 million Longines Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) is May 2 at Churchill Downs.
 
The Steve Asmussen-trained daughter of Tapit  , who also won September's Pocahontas (gr. II) at Churchill where she is unbeaten in two starts, edged the always popular Mutuel Field, or "All Others." Both were at 5-1 among the 24 individual betting choices when wagering in the three-day Kentucky Oaks Future pool concluded March 1 at 4:45 p.m. (ET). Slightly more was wagered on Untapable.
 
Several other fillies attracted strong support in the 2014 KOFW pool, which opened its wagering Feb. 27 at noon. Chief among them was the Charles Fipke's Unbridled Forever (8-1), winner of the Silverbulletday at Fair Grounds last time out for trainer Dallas Stewart. The Todd Pletcher-trained Onlyforyou (9-1), winner of the recent Davona Dale (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park to remain unbeaten in four career races, was the pool's overall fourth choice at the close of wagering.
 
Also drawing solid support were Dame Dorothy (13-1), unbeaten in two starts for Pletcher and her owner, celebrity chef Bobby Flay; Ria Antonia (14-1), winner via disqualification of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) and now trained by two-time Kentucky Oaks winner Bob Baffert; She's a Tiger (15-1), the champion 2-year-old filly of 2013 for trainer Jeff Bonde; and Spinaway (gr. I) winner Sweet Reason (17-1).
 
Wagering during the three-day KOFW pool totaled $81,234, which included $54,571 in win bets and $26,662 in exactas.
