Tiz the Law the even-money favorite in last Kentucky Derby Future pool

Four weeks in advance of the rescheduled $3 million Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes (G1) and Travers Stakes (G1) winner Tiz the Law is the clear-cut horse to beat in the eyes of bettors as he closed as the even-money favorite Sunday in Pool 7 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager.

If the future wager is any indication, Tiz the Law, a winner in six of his seven starts and an earner of $2,015,300, could be the shortest-priced Kentucky Derby favorite since Arazi finished eighth at odds of 4-5 in 1992. The only other horse to start at less than 2-1 odds during that span was Point Given, who finished fifth as the 9-5 choice in 2001.

Sackatoga Stables’ Tiz the Law, trained by Barclay Tagg and ridden by Manny Franco, has been either the first or second individual favorite in every Future Wager pool since last November: Pool 1 (11-1); Pool 2 (8-1); Pool 3 (7-1); Pool 4 (5-1); Pool 5 (2-1); Pool 6 (5-2); and Pool 7 (1-1).

Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner and Shared Belief runner-up Honor A. P. and Blue Grass (G2) and Ellis Park Derby winner Art Collector both closed at odds of 8-1. Haskell winner Authentic was the 11-1 fourth betting choice.

The Kentucky Derby Future Wager, offered for a 22nd consecutive year, enables bettors to wager on possible Kentucky Derby contenders in advance of America’s greatest race at odds that could be more attractive than those available on the day of the race.

On March 17, Churchill Downs Incorporated announced the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby (GI), the 1 ¼-mile classic for 3-year-old Thoroughbreds, would be rescheduled from May 2 to Saturday, Sept. 5 amid public health concerns in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Total handle for Pool 7 of the KDFW was $194,215 ($122,573 in the Win pool and $71,642 in Exactas).
