Click on possible answers in the right column to hide/show them on the graph. You can also hover over any line to see current value at that time. Graphs will begin to show data one hour after the question has been open. The Historical Trend chart does not display all prices ever reached since it is only updated at discrete time intervals, (hourly/daily/weekly, depending on the date range).
This market is based on the Kentucky Derby Future Pool #1, as offered by Churchill Downs. The same rules will apply as are given here:
with obvious modifications to suit Inkling, and also a later closing date.
By the time this market is published, the actual Future Pool will be closed, so the final odds will be known. I will list them, when available, in the "information" about each horse.
Although I could have done differently, I decided to simply let each horse start out at the same odds here. At this point in the season, my experience is that this whole bet is a total crapshoot anyway, so why pretend otherwise?!
Just keep in mind that there will be no refunds here, as in the "real" world. If a horse withdraws from competition for any reason, or does not ultimately qualify for the Derby, that is the same (for purposes of this pool) as losing the race. One of these horses will pay out at 100, and that will be determined on Derby Day (May 7).
It is my intention to similarly offer additional Future Pools, to match the ones sponsored by Churcill Downs. There will be one in March (that will also feature an Oaks-Derby double), and one in April. I will keep them all open longer than the track pools, just to provide a bit more fun here on Inkling.
