Dominant Tiz the Law is Even-Money Favorite in Derby Future Wager

LOUISVILLE, KY – Four weeks in advance of the rescheduled $3 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1), the 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 (KDFW).

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 (G1) winner Authentic was the 11/1 fourth betting choice.
