2018 Kentucky Derby

It’s here, just a few days away. The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 5th. The sports world will be collectively glued to their respective TV sets for two minutes. But what an exciting two minutes this is. I’m not a big horse guy, I’ve rarely gambled on it, despite the fact that Turfway Park is 2 exits south of me. But I do thoroughly enjoy watching it when it is on.

I’ve sat there in Vegas watching the races even though I have no money on it. The few times I have put some money down, I’ve cashed. I can assure you it was pure luck. I picked a cool name with double digit odds. That’s my strategy. Feel free to incorporate that into your gambling habits. I should probably spend more time studying and gambling on it. See if I can continue my beginner’s luck.

Justify is the favorite this Saturday at 3-1. Mendelssohn (5-1), Magnum Moon (6-1), Audible (8-1), and Bolt d’Oro (8-1) are right behind him.

I won’t speculate on who can beat Justify, I’ll leave that to the guys and girls that follow this more closely. But by following my aforementioned ‘method’, my money would be on Vino Rosso at 12-1. Why? Because I like wine and he’s a double digit odds horse. It’s science, folks.

Good luck this Saturday.
