I like Revolutionary today given the combination of Pletcher and Borel with the horse. Normandy Invasion is second on my list. The horse placed well at Wood Memorial and looked to be very strong at the end, making me think he can go the distance. Long shot for today will go to Vyjack, don't understand the 36-1 line with this horse.

I know nothing about horse racing but I put a few bets down. I'm cheering for Vyjack and Verrazano.

Oxbow reminds me of tebow, thus he will come thru in the clutch and win.

Hurricanes25 05-04-2013 12:55 PM

I'm not betting but I'm rooting for Verrazano.

Which horse does Pitino own?

SuperMcGee 05-04-2013 01:09 PM

I was liking Vyjack, when the heck did he fall to 36-1?

MetSox17 05-04-2013 01:13 PM

I don't know THAT much about horse racing, but i always watch the Derby and the big races. I'm glad i'm not gonna miss it this year.

Win: Goldensense (The one Pitino part owns)
Place: Orb (Morning Line Favorite)
Show: Revolutionary (Calvin Borel is the jockey)

So yeah, I know jack **** about horse racing, but this post makes it look like I do. I mean I was born on the day the 1989 Kentucky Derby was ran...

I picked 3 horses today.

Goldenscents, Java's War, Lines of Battle.

I think Goldenscents takes it, but Lines of Battle is the only horse that's run close to this distance, so that's my "dark horse".

If Goldencents can pull off the victory, it'd make for quite the story with a black jockey winning for the first time in ages.

great run by Orb!

MetSox17 05-04-2013 06:29 PM

Excellent race by Joel Rosario.

Had $ on each of Vyjack and Orb to win. They finished on either end but it only takes one hit so I went out and got a nice dinner last night.

Somebody go to Belmont with me.

The college? I'm like 15 minutes away, so I'll go with you. Lots of hoes. We will profit.

SuperMcGee 05-05-2013 06:30 PM

Sure, why not

Tom Brady apparently won $25,000 betting on Orb.

I think I'd probably be willing to trade lives with that dude.

The video of him going nuts was hilarious.
