What is the Kentucky Derby Future Wager?

There are four pools in the KDFW, along with a sire pool offered in the fall, which began during the 2016 Derby season. Horseplayers can also find a Kentucky Oaks Future Wager Pool and Oaks/Derby Double offered in March.

Futures bets typically offer nice odds and larger payouts than betting the same horse on race day, because the horse has not yet known which Derby hopefuls will ultimately qualify to run in the Derby & Oaks.

The Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks pools each consist of 24 wagering interests that include 23 individual horses and an "all others" (or field) of interest. The "All Others" option, listed at number 24, lumps in all 3-year-old fillies and all remaining 3-year-old colts and geldings. 

Win and Exacta betting with each future wager only, and each pool shall be a separate and independent calculation. There are no refunds on any wagers. If it is determined during the pools that one of the individual horses has suffered an illness, injury or other circumstance that will prevent that horse from competing in either race, wagering on that betting interest is suspended at that point.

If an individual betting interest is injured or removed from consideration for the Kentucky Derby due to any reason, no refunds will be given – all wagers are considered final once issued. Players can access the official KDFW General Rules for more details.

TwinSpires.com serves as the Official Betting Site of the Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Derby Future Wager, and current and final odds for each KDFW pool is available along with probable payoffs. Final information is also posted on the Kentucky Derby website following the conclusion of wagering in each respective pool.
