I seldom bet on big race because I am not a good handicapper. Usually I bet on show just to collect a few dollars. I wonder what fellow members think of this year Kentucky Derby. Winner and a sure Shower.

Still a little early. A clearer picture emerges after the March and early April prep races. The colts are growing fast. Some are not on the radar yet.

Hard to share thoughts about horses that have not yet shown potential. And those that have are odds against even starting in the Derby.

Kentucky Derby Futures Pool 2 had 23 horses and the field bet. Of of the 23 listed maybe half get in…I've shared all my thoughts for now. Look for more s*** slinging from me as the Derby approaches.

I've been to Churchill Downs for the derby several times, this will be our first derby in Las Vegas. Any experience enhancing suggestions?

Derby week is a potential gold mine. The beauty of para-mutual betting on a thing like the derby is the tote board often does not reflect the real odds. Lots of folks throwing money at jockey colors and such. A player that knows how to read a racing form can find plenty of bargains. Don't ignore the place and show pools, interesting opportunities pop up all the time.

I'll be at Red Rock on 3 May and should be pretty easy to spot, I'll be the one pretending he knows what he's doing.

Currently in the Triple Crown Futures Pool it's -850 NO and +650 yes…….Will a horse win the Triple Crown?
