Kentucky Derby Sire Future Wager Opens Nov. 23

Curlin is the top individual choice on the wager's morning line.

Offspring sired by Curlin —led by Sentient Jet Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) first two finishers Good Magic and Solomini—are 8-1 odds on the morning line for the third annual Kentucky Derby Sire Future Wager.

The wager, which provides bettors an opportunity to bet on select stallions' entire crop of juveniles with the hope of winning next year's $2 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1), will be offered Nov. 23-26.

Derby fans can wager on the sire that will produce the winner of the 2018 Run for the Roses. Like the Derby Future Wager, the sire wager features 23 individual sires of horses in this year's crop of Kentucky Derby-age Thoroughbreds, along with an "all others" betting interest.

The Kentucky Derby Sire Future Wager, which features $2 win and exacta wagering, will be offered concurrently with Pool 1 of the traditional Kentucky Derby Future Wager. Both betting pools open a four-day run on Thanksgiving Day and close Sunday at 6 p.m. (all times Eastern). 

Curlin, the 2007-08 Horse of the Year who has provided 11 winners from 115 juveniles in his sixth crop, is 8-1 on odds maker Mike Battaglia's morning line odds, but "all other sires" is the 4-1 favorite.
