What's a Winning Superfecta Ticket Among Friends?

For four close friends, the Kentucky Derby produced the financial score of a lifetime. Jason Marshall, his brother Mick, Matt Donner and Jeromy Brantner shared a winning $1 superfecta ticket on the Derby, which paid $278,532.

Marshall, a 34-year-old resident of Louisville, placed the bet, but Donner was the handicapper. He came up with the top four finishers — Mine That Bird, Pioneerof the Nile, Musket Man and Papa Clem.

The four friends decided to each put in a $1 superfecta box, so their total outlay was $96, or $24 each. They agreed that they would split the profits four ways should any one of the four tickets come in.

Lucky.
And they will name that horse.... Super Bird. Or Mine that Super.
Nice touch. These guys will tell stories for the rest of their lives and play the derby together til the end. Bet they buy a race horse.
Outstanding! Finally someone who not only picked Mine that Bird but gave an explanation how he picked it. A deserved win for a bunch of guys loving the sport. Note to self, in future Derbies project all horses to get a rail run...automatic bet on Borel, too!
Just frickin' awesome... this is what horse racing is all about. Good for them... might want to sent Calvin Borel a thank you note...
