An overwhelming majority of the horseplayers participating in the first All American Future Wager have “live” chances going into Thursday’s 20 trials to the All American Futurity presented by Sentient Jet.

The object of the All American Future Wager is to select the Labor Day winner of the All American Futurity presented by Sentient Jet. Wagering closed on July 18.

The wager offered 23 horses as wagering interests and a field bet comprising all the other horses entered in Thursday’s trials.

Of those 23 individual horses, 19 entered the All American Futurity trials. Players who chose those horses and the field players still have the opportunity to win their bet, which should pay more than the winner pays on live betting for the All American Futurity.

Ruidoso Futurity winner American Runaway is the 7-to-2 favorite in the All American Future Wager while the field bet is the second choice at 4-to-1 odds.

The All American Future Wager closed before the running of the Grade 1, $625,000 Rainbow Futurity and All American Future Wager horses stepped forward in the most important race leading up to the All American Futurity.

Hes Too Icy For Me won the Rainbow Futurity and closed at 18-to-1 in the All American Future Wager, while American Runaway ran second. This Corona Is Cold raced to a third-place finish in the Rainbow Futurity with 24-to-1 future wager odds.

The remaining Rainbow Futurity order of finish and their future wager odds is: Classy Nicole (25-to-1), Rock N Zoom (50-to-1), Quik Corona (21-to-1), Llano Teller (7-to-1), Bodacious Dash (18-to-1), Miss Barbra Allen (50-to-1) and Dreams Fly Bye (30-to-1).

All of the Rainbow Futurity finalists entered the All American Futurity trials.
