Sackatoga Stable’s $1 million Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Tiz the Law continues to be top of mind with many horseplayers and was made the 9-5 morning line favorite for the final pool of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager (“KDFW”), which spans Friday to Sunday.

This weekend’s Pool 7 is the final opportunity to wager on the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby prior to the event.

Tiz the Law, a multiple Grade 1-winning son of Constitution, stamped himself as the early Kentucky Derby favorite with his victory in 1 1/8-mile Belmont Stakes – the kickoff leg to this year’s Triple Crown series. Trained by Barclay Tagg, Tiz the Law is the even-money morning line favorite for Saturday’s $1 million Travers (G1) at Saratoga.

The co-headliner of the Travers is Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman’s undefeated colt Uncle Chuck (6-1), who will enter Saturday’s 1 ¼-mile event following a four-length score in last month’s Los Alamitos Derby (G3). Trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Uncle Chuck is one of three entrants in Pool 7 of the KDFW for the five-time Derby-winning conditioner. Other entrants are Spendthrift Farm, MyRaceHorse Stable, Madaket Stables and Starlight Racing’s $1 million Haskell winner Authentic (8-1) and Albaugh Family Stable and Spendthrift Farm’s multiple Grade 2 winner Thousand Words (20-1).

Also likely to take interest is C R K Stable’s Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Honor A.P. (6-1) and Bruce Lunsford’s Blue Grass (G2) hero and likely headliner in Sunday’s $200,000 Ellis Park Derby Art Collector (6-1).

Here’s the complete field for Pool 7 of the KDFW:

#1 Anneau d’Or (50-1)

#2 Art Collector (6-1)

#23 Uncle Chuck (6-1)

#24 “All Other 3-Year-Olds” (30-1).

There are 12 entrants in Pool 7 of the KDFW who are expected to run in Saturday’s Travers or Sunday’s Ellis Park Derby: Anneau d’Or (Ellis Park Derby); Art Collector (Ellis Park Derby); Caracaro (Travers); Country Grammer (Travers): Dean Martini (Ellis Park Derby); Finnick the Fierce (Ellis Park Derby); Max Player (Travers); Shared Sense (Ellis Park Derby); Shivaree (Travers); South Bend (Travers); Tiz the Law (Travers); and Uncle Chuck (Travers).

On March 17, Churchill Downs Incorporated announced the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (GI) would be rescheduled from May 2 to Sept. 5 amid public health concerns in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kentucky Derby Future Wager features $2 Win and Exacta wagering, and provides fans of Thoroughbred racing with opportunities to place bets on possible entrants in the Kentucky Derby at odds that could be far greater than those available on the day of the race.

Bets for the KDFW can be placed on TwinSpires.com and other online wagering outlets across North America. There are no refunds in the Kentucky Derby Future Wager. Should Churchill Downs officials determine during the duration of the three-day pool that one of the wagering interests has experienced an injury, illness or other circumstance that would prevent the horse from participating in the Kentucky Derby, betting on the individual horse will be suspended immediately.
