The gray son of Quality Road opened at 15-1 on the morning line of Pool 4, which began April 5. He was bet down to 6-1 favoritism by the time wagering concluded at 6 p.m. on April 7.

Game Winner, honored as the 2018 champion two-year-old colt following a four-for-four juvenile campaign that included the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) at Churchill Downs last November, saw his 8-1 morning-line price fall to 7-1 to become the third choice in Pool 4.

Beating that bay son of Quality Road in the KDFW was Maximum Security (#13), who upset the Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream Park on March 30 by 3 1/2, front-running lengths. The New Year’s Day colt, who is trained by Jason Servis, also opened at 8-1 in the final pool but and closed at 7-1, but had more wagered on him to win the May 4 Kentucky Derby (G1) than Game Winner.

The Bill Mott-trained Tacitus (#20), winner of the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) and Wood Memorial Stakes (G2) in his past two efforts, and Improbable (#10), another Baffert pupil who ran second while making his only start of the year thus far in the first division of the March 16 Rebel Stakes (G2), closed at 8-1 each. Tacitus had more money wagered on him and is the fourth favorite in Pool 4 of the KDFW.

The mutuel field, or “All Other 3-Year-Olds” (#24), betting interest closed at 19-1, up from 15-1 morning-line odds.

Total betting over the three days reached $500,407 compared to last year’s record of $543,010. Win betting was up from $339,036 in 2018 to $344,418 this year but exacta wagering slipped from a record $203,974 to $155,989.

All totaled, Churchill Downs handled $1,878,359 in future wagers since November, which just missed last year’s record of $1,893,353.
