According to Gracie and Thom on the D-Backs broadcast last night (gawd they are bad) the Derby is held every year in Louisville.

I'm on my way right now to put a few bets down

My wife - who picks on names, is betting on Cause to Believe & Deputy Glitters.

I am going with a Jazil/Point Determined/AP Warrior Trifecta Box and a Lawyer Ron/Brother Derek Exacta Box.

Woohoo Derby Day - one of my favorite times of the year

I think Brother Derek is the favorite.

I'm going with Sinister Minister.

Sweet - while I was standing in line to buy my tickets, I decided what the heck and put a $2 across the board bet on Bluegrass Cat for the heck of it.

That looks like an $80+ return for a "Whatever" pick. I like it

Nice! :)

I was kind of in shock when I saw the payoffs for that horse. I am not much of a horserace type and do not bet on them, but I am enough of a sports fan to know the names and odds of the top 2 or 3 horses. And I always watch the Derby, Belmont & Preakness. I told the wife and kids that a few people who decided to take a chance on that horse (and didn't go for the win on it) were smilin'.

My wife and I are the same way, we do the three triple crown races and maybe one day at the track a year.

Her family is hard core into the whole racing scene - and her grandfather helped me learn how to read the stat sheets in the Daily Racing Form. That is like the Rosetta stone I am telling you, and opened my eyes about betting and I've been in love with it ever since. Once you can look at the history of a horse and have it make sense, it's a whole new world.

The Big News over here is not so much about the winner but the story behind the trainer. I believe that he was on United Flight that crash landed in Sioux City Iowa in the late 80's early 90s. Supposedly he had as guests for the race three girls he rescued from the wreckage as well.
