America’s “Greatest Sports In Two Minutes” is now back on track after a forced rescheduling last September 2020. The Kentucky Derby, under the supervision of the newest track President, Mike Anderson, will begin on April 30-May 1, 2021, highlighting another batch of three-year-old colts working in the dirt track.
Called the “Run For The Roses,” the Kentucky Derby is one of America’s grandest horse racing competitions. It is the first jewel of the U.S. Triple Crown Series, which was last won in 2018 via Justify. Aside from that, the Derby road is quite tough since hopefuls need to pass the Derby trails and gain enough points to earn their berth.
While it’s still early to get the list of entries that will run in the upcoming Derby, sportsbooks are slowly opening Future Wager as a potential favorite to win this year’s Derby. Below are the Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool 2 that you can bet from January 22-24, 2021.
Bob Baffert is starting the lineup of potential Derby runners this May, with Bezos headlining the list of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool 2 this week. This colt is owned by SF Racing LLC and bred by Grousemont Farms. Aside from that, he got the pedigree of Mike Maker with AP Mink as his sire.
