Update: Pool Three of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager is now closed. Off his spectacular win in the Santa Anita Derby, Brother Derek closed as the favorite at 5-1 with Lawyer Ron next at 8-1 while Barbaro and Discreet Cat were 9-1. The total pool was $454,743, third highest ever for the third pool. The Kentucky Oaks had only $51,212 wagered on it and Balance remained the favorite at 4-1 despite her loss to Brushfire in the Ashland at Keeneland.

Florida Derby winner Barbaro is second favorite at 5-1 with the field of all other 3-year-olds next at 6-1.
