Brother Derek moves to head of class with Santa Catalina win.
Santa Catalina (gr. II) winner Brother Derek shot to favoritism at 10-1 among individual horses as Pool 2 of the 2006 Kentucky Derby Future Wager closed on Sunday. But the field entry of all 3-year-olds not listed in the pool was a solid overall choice of bettors at odds of 3-1.

Corinthian, who won the Fountain of Youth (gr. II) but was disqualified to third behind First Samurai and Flashy Bull, dropped to odds of 15-1, while his two rivals were 16-1 and 32-1, respectively.

Sam F. Davis winner Bluegrass Cat is next favored at 11-1. Private Vow, yet to race in 2006, is 13-1. Whirlaway winner Achilles of Troy and Holy Bull (gr. III) victor Barbaro join Corinthian at 15-1.

The third and final Kentucky Derby Future Wager pool is set for April 6-9.  The Kentucky Derby presented by Yum Brands! (gr. I) is May 6.
