    Those that have followed my previous years Derby threads, know that I've done pretty well betting the last 4 Derby's, but still pissed about 2017. Legit should have won $20k, instead of $100 or whatever it was. Let's see what we can do this year.

    I haven't been to the track in a few years. I might hit Turfway on the 16th for that prep race.

    As for the Derby, I think I've won the last two years based on your recommendations alone. Let's keep this train rolling...

    Now that all of the preps have been run, it's time to start digging into past performances & really start handicapping this thing. At first glance, I think the 4 horses most likely to win the Derby are as follows:

    Maximum Security
    Omaha Beach
    Roadster
    Improbable

    A lot can change in 2 1/2 weeks though. Stay tuned...

    I’ve never been to the Derby, but I’ve been to the airport there on Derby weekend a few times though. I’ve never seen anything like it, although South Bend comes close during a home game. There are hundreds of business jets crammed onto every square inch of pavement. Every taxiway is used to park them too. It is fucking crazy there. I wish I had a picture of it.
