#US RACING: Forte The Kentucky Derby Future Wager Favourite


The final pool of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is set to make its three-day run March 30-April 1, with Repole Stable and St. Elias Stable's Forte  tabbed as the solid 5-2 favorite in the field of 39 individual horses plus a 40th option for "All Other 3-Year-Olds" not listed.

Unlike the first five Future Wager pools, Pool 6 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager will close Saturday at 6 p.m. ET., which is 40 minutes before the $1 million Florida Derby (G1) and an hour and 50 minutes prior to the $1.25 million Arkansas Derby (G1)—making it a true future wager.

Pool 6 will feature $2 win and exacta wagering. Fans can wager via www.TwinSpires.com along with simulcast and ADW outlets from around the country.

Forte, the 4-5 odds-on favorite in the Florida Derby, will have his final test Saturday before the $3 million Kentucky Derby (G1) May 6. The son of Violence   has taken heavy action in all five previous pools of the future wager, and added to his favoritism in his last start when he won the $400,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park.
