    Triple Crown Races 2014

    Kentucky Derby is tomorrow. Seems to be a very competitive field this year with Santa Anita Derby winner California Chrome a deserving favorite. I like CC as well as Vicar's in a Trouble and Danza.

    Hoppertunity and Pablo del Monte are scratched, so a field of 19 will go.

    NBCSports network will show the stakes races prior to the Derby from 12-4pm EST.
    NBC will then broadcast from 4-7pm EST

    I'll be over in the corner being violently ill until tomorrow. How do full-time handicappers do this for a living? (Untappable better get her rear end under the wire first tonight.)

    Are you betting an Oaks/Derby exacta?

    Untapable was great! Scary moments though when they first when into the gate.

    Untapable was great! And yes those were scary moments when they first went into the gate.

    Here in Lexington the local NBC station has all day Derby coverage. I have it muted right now, but looks like a horse possibly threw the jockey off in the third race.

    It's called a daily double (despite not being daily in this case.) I have live tickets for both the Oaks/Derby double and the Oaks/Woodford/Derby P3, plus there's a late all-stakes P4 at Churchill. And then I have a STACK of exotics (plus an "early-bird" guaranteed 4-1 win ticket on California Chrome, a WPS $4 base wager on Medal Count, and $2 P/S on Candy Boy and Ride On Curlin because Calvin made me some money yesterday, though he had the one hole then and he's out of 18 on #19 today.) I honestly think I will be too nervous to watch. My bankroll is only $150 of "real" money but because I'm wagering off winnings I've got a lot more involved...and of course, I am like that girl in "League of Their Own" with high hard pitches when it comes to P6s...can't hit them, can't leave them alone.

    I don't think I can watch today. I probably will throw up.

    Living in a state where pari-mutal wagering is illegal, I envy you. I wish you good luck with your wagers.

    Horse racing is so beautiful and so scary. I want every horse racing today to finish their run just as healthy as when they started.

    I know better than to go with a favorite in the Derby, but I'd love to see California Chrome win this.

    California Chrome was awesome! But, Victor E...don't celebrate your win until you cross the finish line. That's one of my biggest pet peeves.

    Well, thanks to Untappable, Wise Dan, and California Chrome my Pick 3 paid all of 4.50 and I think I got $8 for the Oaks/Derby (hooray for heavy favorites :S ). However, my exacta of 5 over All in the Derby ($18) paid $170. A place/show wager on Commanding Curve paid $47. I bombed out of all-stakes Pick 4, the P6 in the first race of it, the daily double for 8 and 9. Had a very cheap 1/all in the Woodford with Wise Dan. Missed the Derby trifectas because I had C. Curve in the wrong slot (went cheap on it.)

    Oh, and I hit the Derby superfecta with a $129 wager. THAT paid $5,720. I closed the day with about $6000 in my TVG account, and have now paid for my vacation I'm taking in September four times over.

    Also, take the Pegasus off Johnny's hat and I'd wear it. With the pegasus, Johnny wins. But I knew that before I saw it. Johnny has the best Derby hat. There is no arguing that point.
