Kentucky Derby weekend is one of the best betting opportunities of the
year. Two days of stakes filled programs bringing together large fields
of highly competitive horses provides ample opportunity for
horseplayers to make a season’s worth of profits in a matter of minutes.
Likewise a season’s worth of handicapping and betting lessons can be
learned over the course of the two days. While many will focus on the
large payoffs and turn their attention to the second leg of the Triple
Crown, the Preakness, I want to share eleven of the valuable lessons I
learned this past weekend.
