16-12-11 for the boxed trifecta. Prefer an 11, 12, 16 finish for the price, although Bellamy Road, IMO, will not be denied.

"I don't know if it's been mentioned, but he won the Arkansas Derby by 8 lengths :~)"

Yup! I was impressed with him. I was just more impressed with Bellamy Road. Both races were run at a mile and an eigth and Bellamy ran faster easier, but you never know.

It's such a big field, that I'm afraid my favorite will get boxed in.

If it is so warm there, 80, why do the guys have blue long sleved jackets on?

Hey, HotD, did I tell you I started riding lessons myself? I really enjoy it. I didn't know it was so much exercise. :)

I have so many bets out on this Derby I can't enumerate them all.....I've had a good week, winning every day, I am up over $3000.....I have win bets on a bunch of longshots, and 2 futures bets on GOING WILD who is going off much longer than even in the 1 and 2 Futures pools. But a very good and profitable exacta would be the 3 and 4, Sun King and Noble Causeway. Always gotta try to beat the favorites, even when they look as good as Bellamy Road, and Afleet Alex. The presence of two real longshots in the superfecta will make for a BIG payoff, and that's what it's all about.
I LOVE the big fields and this is the biggest I can remember. I KNOW I AM GONNA CASH SOMETHING! Hopefully a superfecta or trifecta at least. Will check in later with my wins or losses.

Yea, thats always a concern. A lot of the times the best horse cant win because of that

High Fly has the best speed record, averaging his last three races. The track is fast too. He has a good chance. I have a bet on him. But I'm hoping Alex wins- here we go.......
