When a racing fan hears the word "Derby" typically one thing comes to mind, the Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby is the most prestigious and historical event in racing, quite simply it's legendary. Though the Indiana Derby has only been around since 1995, it has produced some exciting finishes and some legendary horses.

The Breeders’ Cup is offering a $3,000,000 guarantee to its all stakes late pick 4. The late pick 4 that starts in race 8 includes the Breeders’ Cup Mile, the Breeders’ Cup Turf, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, and the gem of them all the Breeders’ Cup Classic. There’s an old saying that goes “money talks and b.s. walks,” it is put up or shut up time and I’m ready to cash-in on this massive guaranteed pool.

Finding the Key” Finding the Key is a phrase I use quite often use in terms of my betting strategy for the Breeders’ Cup. Consider the “Key” your source to riches, your “Golden Ticket” to the Chocolate Factory you might say. The Key can also open the door to disappointment if it’s the wrong key. But either way my Breeders’ Cup success will be determined on how many “Keys” open the door to the Winner’s Circle.

My journey into the sport of kings has been different than most. I do not boast a royal pedigree, and in fact, before my interest in horse racing, my family thought the Kentucky Derby was the only race of the year! I'm the son of a minor league baseball player and a homemaker, which doesn't exactly scream grade I winner.


My passion for the sport started about 8 years ago.I was watching as Funny Cide was making his triple crown run. The “Gutsy Gelding” had my eyes glued to the television with each of his triple crown races. After watching Funny Cide on TV. I decided to make a trip down to our local track, Indiana Downs.This would be an experience that would change my life.

I looked over the program, while having no idea what I was doing,I decided to put my 5 dollars on a horse named Apollonea. As the gates broke and the announcer began his race call, I heard the words Apollonea to the lead. My excitement grew as I watched my horse lead all the way around the track, eventually drawing to win by an easy five lengths. Apollonea paid 58.00 to win, I was hooked from that point on.

For the past 8 years my life has been horse racing.  I've tried to educate myself on every aspect of the sport and learn about it's past. The incredible run of the Super Filly Rachel Alexandra would also change my life. It was my intense passion and love for Rachel that would bring me to meet some of the greatest  people in the world. I owe a lot to Rachel and this sport for introducing me to such wonderful people.


I want this blog to show that Indiana Racing stacks up with any track, anywhere! It will also show what great value can be found in Indiana for the bettors, and not to mention, the incredible purses for the owners and trainers.
