ptper - I lost $210 on the Derby so I'm looking for revenge. REVENGE!
Oh and who do you like on Saturday?
We do an office pool (with some outsiders as well) and hand it over to one of the guys and his son. They study the fuck out of this stuff and we let them make the call. This year we had a total of about $4,000 that was placed on all kinds of superfecta and trifecta wheel bets, exactas, and some straight up win/place bets.
We actually hit the exacta, but the payout was such shit that we only got about $14 each.
Best year we had was about $700 each above what we initially put in. This year was the worst one so far due mostly to Gunrunner fucking up all our combos and the rest of the finishers being favorites.
I honestly can't name a single horse (other than Nyquist) that is running in the Preakness.
