    Kentucky Derby

    Everybody loves the derby there is always something special about betting and watching the race. Even a $1 ticket gives one hope or that sinking feeling one just donated to the cause.

    Either way it is fun.

    This year I see this as a 3 stage race. Speed-Stalkers and other. Post position is critical. Did you know that in the History of the Derby # 17 post position has never won (Mor Spirit at 12-1 is in this position)

    Nyquist can be beat although post position could favor this horse.

    Keep you eye on # 11 Exaggerator to place in the top 3. He goes off at 8-1.

    Last year a $1 bet in the SuperFecta I lost but it paid $650. You must pick all four spots in correct order.

    My picks: # 3 Nyquist-# 5 GunRunner- # 3 Creator- # 11 Exaggerator.

    Just sharing my thoughts with you all-Mint Juleps and great hats from the ladies make this a very special day.

    I think nyquist wins as well. Good odds on a good horse.
    I see a regular bet at my book to win at 3/1. Great odds for a horse that could win 2 of the 3 races.

    Also, I think public perception is not overly crazy here too giving us good odds.
    It's always been triple crown talk but that's worn off since last year.

    Everybody hopes its a long shot but there is usually one strong horse. Good value.

    Please tell me you boxed those in a Superfecta, or at least a Tri.
    The payout of $6.60 for the win was quite nice considering Nyquist went off at 2-1.

    What are you guys thinking n the Preakness?

    Looking at Exagerrator myself but historically unners up in the Derby stink in the Preakness.

    Nyquist looked awfully good tho and have to throw him in there somehwere. Looking for a longer shot to throw in with those 2 in a trifecta box possibly. Any suggestions? Just starting my research now.

    Woodee I am still looking at the race as you are.

    Post position is not known and is as always will become a factor.

    My early blush is Nyquist to Win.

    Roll Nyquist-Creator-Exgatterater into a Box TRIFECTA

    SUPERFECTA

    Nyquist- GunRunner-Exga-Creator STRAIGHT/BOX
