EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The final Future Wager on the 94th edition of the Hambletonian at The Meadowlands opened its fourth and final pool on Aug. 1.
The pool will remain open until Saturday, Aug. 3 at post time of the first elimination and/or heat of the Hambletonian scheduled for Race 8 with a post-time of 2:55 p.m.
A winning ticket pays the closing odds in the pool before the first elimination of the Hambletonian, Race 8.
Of the 101 trotting colts eligible for the $1 million Hambletonian, just 16 entered to race for $1 million on Aug. 3 at The Meadowlands Racetrack.
The Marcus Melander trained quartet of trotters — Greenshoe, Green Manalishi S, Gimpanzee and Gerry, have earned a combined $1.9 million to date and it’s no surprise that Greenshoe is tabbed the Future Wager favorite at 2-1.
The first Future Wager poll closed with Indiana-sired Swandre The Giant favored at 2-1, but the Ron Burke trained Hambo hopeful is now 12-1.
The second Future Wager Pool closed with a drastic shift to the lightly-raced Greenshoe, whose two winning efforts in NJ Sire Stake events were nothing short of dominant. The colt offered 3-5 odds at closing time. Greenshoe remained the favorite in Pool 3 closing at 8-5.
Wagering will be available at racetrack and online sites throughout North America and internationally.
