Mutuel field heavy favorite in Kentucky Derby Future Wager

Louisville, KY (Sports Network) - The first of three Kentucky Derby Future Wagers for the 2012 Run for the Roses closed Sunday night with the mutuel field being a heavy favorite. The top single three-year-old was Union Rags.

The Future Wager, comprised of 23 individual three-year-olds plus the mutuel field, began Friday at noon (et) and concluded Sunday at 6 p.m. (et).
