Zayat Racing Stable’s Eskendereya emerged as the solid individual choice to win $2 million-guaranteed Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (Grade I) on Saturday, May 1 – but the “All Others” betting interest remained the overall fans’ choice as Pool 2 of Churchill Downs’ 2010 Kentucky Derby Future Wager (“KDFW”) ended its three-run early Sunday evening. Eskendererya, the dominant winner of the Fountain of Youth (GII) at Gulfstream Park, one of trainer Todd Pletcher’s record six KDFW betting interests, was a strong 5-1 choice among Pool 2’s 23 individual horses.. But the mutuel field – betting interest #24 that included all 3-year-olds other than the pool’s 23 individual horses – was the 3-1 overall choice when the pool closed Sunday evening at 6 p.m. (EST). . Other horses that received strong backing in the second of the year’s three KDFW pools included the Bob Baffert-trained 2-year-old champion Lookin at Lucky, who closed at odds of 9-1, and Dublin, trained by four-time Derby-winner D. Wayne Lukas, who was a 10-1 risk. Remsen (GII) winner Buddy’s Saint was next at 16-1. Should he win the Kentucky Derby on May 1, Eskenderaya will return $13.80 for a $2 “win” wager in Pool 2.. The Giant’s Causeway colt closed at 22-1 in February’s Pool 1. Pletcher’s six-pack of Pool 2 horses was completed by Rule (20-1), Conveyance (28-1), Discreetly Mine (37-1), Connemara (46-1) and Aikenite (57-1). Derby fans wagered $170,750 on Sunday to lift the Pool 2 final betting total to $355,853. That total includes $86,547 in exacta betting.
