Just goes to show you, that you can be almost all over it, and gain very little. Hit the Exacta, Trifecta, and Show bet. Only missed the Win and Place bets. Looks like Taco Bell tonight. Woo hoo!!!!!
Looked over the notes, and thought a shout-out to EP Taylor was deserving. Nice pick!!
Tri paid $513.40 for a $2 bet.
Hey, rafi!!!! Good to hear you had good fortune today. As for where I've been, I don't share in the conversations. Just like to pick them. Thanks for asking, though. Hope you're doing well.
Doesn't accomplish a damn thing, but it's kinda' neat that all the horses I used in my Trifecta bets, occupied the top seven in order of finish. Too bad they don't have a penny Super Seven. Even at that, to box all seven, would be $50.40(5040 combinations). Oh well, all I'll say is that I pegged the top seven, with no consolation.
Whoo hoo!!!!!!! No Taco Bell tonight!!!!! We're splurging for a Big Mac attack!!!!!!! It won't be long, and we'll be Red Lobster bound!!!!!!
Monarchos, because he was the only other colt to eclipse the 2 minute barrier other than Secretariat; Smarty Jones, for he was running for a $5 million dollar bonus; and, Mine That Bird, for he was the second-longest shot to ever win the Derby, and the top angle was so visibly impressive, showing him weave through traffic. P.S. I'd also include Barbaro, for he won by the widest margin in many years.
CORRECTION: Payoff was $58.40 for 50 cent payoff. Profit meager $13.40, but profit, nonetheless.
Well, Jasen, sorry I let you down. I tried your Trifecta theory, and managed to make it work. Only problem was, only a $29.20 return for $45 bet. The #7 was bet down from 15-1 to 7-2, rising ever so slightly to 6-1. Guess I didn't foresee that. Oh well, the next best thing to winning???? Getting a casher. At least some of your losses are absorbed. Wait til next week. A little bit of Bourbon, and I'll get some Courage, for the Clark Handicap!!!!!
