Total handle for the Nov. 28-Dec. 1 KDFW pool – the first of four scheduled wagering pools in advance of the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (GI) on Saturday, May 2 – was a record $350,312 ($284,317 in the Win pool and $65,995 in Exactas), which was a lofty 35.6% increase from last year's $258,389 ($186,470 in the Win pool and $71,919 in Exactas).

Inaugurated in 1999, the Kentucky Derby Future Wager has been offered for a 22nd consecutive year, but this marks only the seventh time that Churchill Downs has hosted a KDFW pool on closing weekend of its Fall Meet. The old record for Pool 1 wagering during the Fall Meet was $273,174 in 2014.

This year's early Derby betting menu also included the Kentucky Derby Sire Future Wager, which, for the fifth consecutive year, provided bettors with a unique opportunity to wager on select breeding stars and their entire crop of juveniles with the hope of winning next year's Kentucky Derby.

“All Other Sires” and Constitution attracted the most attention from bettors. “All Other Sires” closed as the 9-2 favorite, slightly more money than 5-1 Constitution, who is the sire of Tiz the Law, Independence Hall and Breeders' Futurity (GI) runner-up Gouverneur Morris among others.
