This weekend is your last chance to get in early on the Kentucky Derby Futures Wager. The fourth pool will open on Friday April 1st and remain open through April 3rd giving you an opportunity to get the best possible odds on the field. We’re just a month removed from the last round of this exciting offer from Twinspires.com and there are some notable changes.
One thing that’s remained constant is Mohaymen’s presence at the top of the board. He is still a 7/2 favorite with Nyquist pressing close behind at 7/1. Strong performances at the Holy Bull Stakes and the Fountain of Youth Stakes have cemented Mohaymen’s rightful place atop the derby futures pool, and he could very well see his mark split in half by the time we get to the May 7th running of the Churchill Downs race.
Nyquist remains an intriguing choice at 7/1. He torched the shorter San Vicente Stakes but will have a chance to remind everyone how talented he is when he clashes with Mohyamen at the Florida Derby over the course of this weekend. Should Nyquist stage an upset as a small faction expects, his 7/1 odds would be a steal at the onset of the weekend. They won’t stay that profitable for long.
Mor Spirit and Danzing Candy are engaged in a west coast duel that has spurned an incredible amount of interest. The San Felipe Stakes was the sight of their first encounter with Danzing Candy stealing the show. The Mark Sise trainee’s odds have dropped from 17/1 to 12/1 since third pool of the derby futures wager closed on March 13th. Mor Spirit has always been in the thick of the race and also has 12/1 odds heading in to the final round of the KDFW. The pair are due to compete once more at the Santa Anita Derby.
Joining the fray is Gun Runner at 15/1, coming fresh off a win at the Louisiana Derby. Destin has also dropped to 12/1 after a rousing win at the Tampa Bay Stakes. Lani makes his debut on the derby futures wager board after surprising everyone at the UAE Derby this past weekend.
