2015 Kentucky Derby

It's that time of year again; the 2015 Kentucky Derby is Saturday May 2.

Post Position were drawn Wednesday the 29th.

Lots of speed horses and several closers. Keep an eye on Mubtaahij in the 6 post.
The only horse to have raced and won at a mile and a quarter at the Dubai.

Picking the Kentucky Derby

It's Kentucky Derby time.

I will do my Pick 3's, Tri-Boxes, Daily Doubles, WPS, and the 2 dollar nitwit bets on longshots on the card.

Good Luck to everyone!

i have american pharoah to win, and pharoah, and two others in a box trifecta. i forget the other two, but one was a real longshot (ice in the name?) that according to some expert a coworker knows has no shot but often covers lots of ground to place.

we went to an OTB joint at lunch to place some bets.

i've never seen so many old guys in nylon jackets with slicked back gray hair in one place.
