The KDFW, which features $2 Win and Exacta wagering, provide fans 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 147th running of Kentucky Derby is set for May 1 at Churchill Downs. 

There are no refunds in the Kentucky Derby Future Wager. Should Churchill Downs officials determine during the duration of this week’s 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.

More information and real-time odds are available online at www.KentuckyDerby.com/FutureWager.

Dates for the remaining 2021 Kentucky Derby future pools are Mar. 5-7 (Pool 4) and Mar. 26-28 (Pool 5). The lone Kentucky Oaks Future Wager (KOFW) will coincide with Pool 4 of the KDFW.
