He’s trained the last four champion three-year-old males and has won the Kentucky Derby (G1) five times altogether, and Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert unsurprisingly has the likely top two individual betting choices in this week’s Pool 2 of the 2019 Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW).
While the mutuel field option of “All Other 3-Year-Olds” was installed as the 5-2 morning line favorite in Pool 2, Baffert’s undefeated pair of champion juvenile Game Winner and Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) winner Improbable were installed at 6-1 and 8-1, respectively.

The Kentucky Derby Future Wager, which feature $2 Win and Exacta wagering, provide fans of Thoroughbred racing with opportunities to place bets on possible entrants in the $3 million Kentucky Derby (G1) at odds that could be far greater than those available on the day of the race. The 145th running of Kentucky Derby is set for May 4 at Churchill Downs.
Bets can be placed at Churchill Downs, TwinSpires.com and satellite wagering centers across North America. There are no refunds in the Kentucky Derby Future Wager. Should Churchill Downs officials determine during the duration of the three-day pool that one of the wagering interests has experienced an injury, illness or other circumstance that would prevent the horse from participating in the Kentucky Derby, betting on the individual horse will be suspended immediately.
