    not much interest

    Horse Racing a losing game

    Corbin does not play anything with zero edge

    one of JJ's best video's was him driving to the horse track. classic.

    sad to see him so down on it. still a fun time if you go and bet in moderation.

    It's Nyquist and then Mohaymen and then Mor Spirit. We could have another triple crown winner with Nyquist. The horse is really good.

    I have three futures bets made early last month.
    Nyquist 300 to win 3000 at 10/1
    Suddenbreakingnews 100 to win 4K
    Whitmore 100 to win 4K
    Had Pharoah in the first derby futures pool last year at 12/1.
    Only play triple crown and Breeders Cup. Fun time of year. Good luck all.
    I emailed several people who play the ponies at work to watch out for Nyquist when I saw his first 6 furlong race last summer so hoping he comes through.

    I also play Triple Crown (Oaks day I do phenomenally, typically) and Breeders Cup every year. If I'm live at the track, I'll play things like the Travers. I'm a big pick 4,5,6 guy

    Bring it on

    Good luck to all! This one could produce big prices. Nyquist is great, but more of a sprinter type, we'll see.

    mohaymen working great off that loss to nyquist, 8-1 range has value, was going to load up on him but have a feeling going 2 be a free for all this year should be great race

    Nyquist is winner.

    Not so much fun when the odds on favorite wins race.

    Going to see what kind of trifectas I can put together for added value.

    Post position draw is today at 2:15 PDT; I'm looking at Gun Runner and am looking to toss the horses who came from way back in those races at LaD and OP.

    The Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup races present far more value than any other horse races due to the huge amounts of novice money.

    This is one of the reasons my Triple Crown record is very good.

    Breeders Cup I have extreme years, both good and bad.

    JJ, you are right at least in this: 20 horses is a racing anomaly and is the X factor in 'capping this race.
