Future Wager List Amended After Defection of Macho Uno

From Churchill Downs
The defection of Macho Uno, the co-third choice on the original list
of Pool 1 wagering interests at 10-1, and the addition of Songandaprayer have prompted Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia to adjust his morning line for the Future Wager pool. Songandaprayer has been installed at 30-1 in Churchill Downs' 2001 Kentucky Derby Future Wager, while the odds of three other horses have been adjusted downward. A P Valentine had been installed at odds of 12-1 and is now listed at 10-1,

Dollar Bill dropped from 12-1 to 10-1, and morning line odds on Holiday Thunder were lowered to 15-1 from an original listing of 20-1.

Pool 1 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is set to open Thursday, Feb. 15 and continue through Sunday, Feb. 18. The Future Wager allows racing fans to place wagers on contenders for the Kentucky Derby months or weeks in advance at odds that may be more attractive than those they would receive on Derby Day. The Kentucky Derby Future Wager is a $2 minimum wager
and is a win bet only. The list of 24 wagering interests for each pool includes 23 horses and a mutuel field that includes all other 3-year-old Thoroughbreds. Pool 1 opens at Noon (EST) on Thursday, Feb. 15 and wagering will continue that day until 11:00 p.m. The same schedule will be in place on Friday and Saturday, but the pool's final day of wagering on Sunday, Feb. 18, will open at noon (EST) and close at 4:30 p.m. The odds that are in place at the close of wagering on Feb. 18 will be the official odds for the
four-day pool.

Pool 2 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is scheduled for March 8-11 and Pool 3 is set for April 5-8.
