So who's going to win?
The bookies, who else?
We need a Triple Crown! It’s been 32 years, longer than the break between Citation and Secretariat. (BTW, I was at Belmont the day Secretariat won the Triple Crown.)
The most dominant horse I’ve ever seen. He won the Belmont by 31 1/2 lengths! As he was crossing the finish line, the rest of the field was coming around the last turn — and he was gaining on them. He paid $2.10, $2.10, and $2.10.
As always, I’m picking the horses by their names...I like the exacta of Awesome Act and Devil May Care. Hey, it’s as good as anything else!!! One year my Dad picked the Trifecta and won over $8k! It was amazing!
Of course, I have the disadvantage of not being there. I'm a paddock bettor.
Does the Delta Queen still race the Belle of Louisville from Cincinnati down to Louisville the day before Derby Day?
Keep an eye on those who run best in mud. Louisville is under a Flash Flood Watch today, this looks to be one of the wettest Derby Days in history.
Put twenty on 20.
Do horsie races ever get rained out? The rain is supposed to increase as the morning goes on.
they run. i doubt even many scratches if alot of rain. theres only one chance in a horses life to win this.
Awfully wet out there. Off the turf, except for the Turf Classic.
Leaning towards Awesome Act. As wide open as they come.
Super Saver and Devil May Care with big Maiden wins in slop.
Mission Impazible good 2nd in slop.
Backtalk winner of minor Stakes in slop.
Winner of first sat in fourth about four lengths back, behind a slow pace. Stayed in about the 4 or 5 path all the way around.
Off to the track. Good luck.
