After extending his unbeaten sequence to three in Saturday’s San Felipe (G2), Authentic saw his odds tumble to 6-1 in Pool 3 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager that ran from Friday through Sunday evening. The Bob Baffert colt closed as the individual favorite, while the “All others” option maintained overall favoritism at 4-1.

Authentic has been an individual betting interest in all three KDFW pools so far. A 50-1 shot as a sprint maiden winner in Pool 1 (Nov. 28-Dec. 1), he closed at 15-1 in Pool 2 (Feb. 7-9) in the wake of his romp in the Sham (G3). Authentic was pegged at 12-1 in the Pool 3 morning line, so his price was halved by the end.

Tiz the Law was the only other individual to finish Pool 3 in single digits, clipped from his 8-1 morning line to 7-1. The Champagne (G1) and Holy Bull (G3) winner has been well backed in all three KDFW pools. The 11-1 individual favorite in Pool 1, Tiz the Law was just shaded by Nadal when both closed at 8-1 in Pool 2.

San Vicente (G2) victor Nadal, a stablemate of Authentic’s from the deep Baffert barn, held steady to his 10-1 line in Pool 3. Baffert’s hot debut winner Charlatan likewise opened and closed at 12-1.

Honor A. P., who chased Authentic home in the San Felipe, also came in for plenty of support. The John Shirreffs pupil was bet down from a 20-1 morning line to 14-1 by Pool 3’s conclusion.

Churchill Downs reported that $356,668 was bet in Pool 3 ($260,270 in the Win pool and $96,398 in Exactas). Last year, the same pool handled $385,464 ($282,199 in the Win pool and $103,265 in Exactas). Pool 3 will-pays and exacta probables are accessible at these links.

The fourth and final Kentucky Derby Future Wager is set for the last major prep weekend, April 3-5.

Running concurrently with Pool 3 was the one and only Kentucky Oaks Future Wager, where the “All other 3-year-old fillies” option was favored at 3-1. Venetian Harbor, the smashing Las Virgenes (G2) winner, gave the mutuel field a run for the money by shortening from an 8-1 morning line to become the 4-1 individual favorite. Finite, who made it five straight in the Rachel Alexandra (G2), was trimmed from 10-1 to 8-1.
