The betting window for the inaugural All American Future Wager presented by AQHA will be open Thursday, July 15, though Sunday, July 18.

The All American Future Wager gives players the chance to purchase a win bet for the September 6 All American Futurity presented by Sentient Jet (G1) on one of 23 selected 2-year-olds or the field.

The field bet is the 2-to-1 morning-line favorite. The favored horse is American Runaway, by Ocean Runaway out of Allamericandreamgirl (by Strawfly Special) at 5-to-2. The Paul Jones–trained colt won the Ruidoso Futurity (G1) on June 13, and so is this year’s contender for the $4 million All American Triple Crown Bonus. American Runaway is owned by Sammy and Johnny Martinez and Bobby D. Cox.

A panel of professional American Quarter Horse handicappers compiled the ballot of 23 horses. The complete list of entries and their past performances are available free of charge at www.AAFutureWager.com. The list of participating outlets is also available at the website.
