Pool 4 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager (KDFW) commences its three-day run at noon Friday (ET) and betting will close at 6 p.m. Sunday. Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) and Sam F. Davis (G3) winner McCraken, the 6-1 choice among 23 individual interests in Pool 3, is listed as the 6-1 co-favorite with Fountain of Youth victor Gunnevera on the Pool 4 morning line.

The mutuel field, known as “All others,” was a solid favorite in the first three KDFW pools but has been installed at 10-1 for Pool 4 by Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia.

McCracken will make his final prep in the April 8 Blue Grass (G1) at Keeneland. Bettors will have the opportunity to see Gunnevera run in Saturday’s Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream Park.
