Winners? Losers? Did you watch. Did you place a bet? Did you drink a Mint Julep?

In the UK we have The Grand National.
It started in 1839.

That one and others like it are tense races to watch. They are long, the jumps are huge and the accidents are pretty awful, horses and people die.

Yep, the death toll for the National is pretty grim reading.

Messier, baby! I'm all in on him. How could you not love a horse named after one of hockey's greatest players.

But the race is this Saturday. It wasn't last week. And yes, I will be drinking juleps on Saturday and wearing my Derby hat at the party we are attending.

I hate to play chalk, tres, but this year, I'm all over 'Epicenter.' ( what an amazing physical specimen of horse flesh! ) Will be primarily keying first and second in exactas, as well as some horizontals, and if it doesn't work out, I'll simply sit back, lick my wounds, and await for my old buddy 'Into Mischief' ( doing fine, and living the good life at Spendthrift, BTW to do his thing, ( again ), which will more than cover any losses should 'Epicenter" fail to deliver. Also, loving the 3 hole draw.

Last I heard Epicenter was the odds on favorite. He's a great horse, no doubt and no question. I'm still all in for Messier, who was the 3rd favorite in the lines.

Into Mischief. What a great guy he is!

'Ep" is basically currently a co-favorite. I'm hoping for 4-1 by post time, but 5-2/3-1 will work. 'Mischief Man' loves his Granny apples, and seems to know he is the King of the Road in 'Super Stallion World.' If things pan out as planned, will be going to visit at the next Keeneland Fall sale. Looking forward to one one those fantastic 'Tony's Steakhouse' nights with the boys in the syndicate, and a couple of high profile trainers.

I saw 3 videos of Tiz the Bomb and I'm thinking he might win it all at 30 to 1. I know, he's not a dirt horse, he's a grass or artificial track runner, but he's been working out on dirt for a month now and he sure knows how to come from the middle and roar in for the finish. If I knew how to bet I'd put $100 on him

weaver--If you want to wager, go to TVG.com. Depending on which state you reside in, you can sign up in minutes, it's based in Oregon, and totally legal. They are currently having a 'new member' sign up special, so be sure to get all of the details, contact a rep, so if you do create an account, you'll be sure to receive the sign up bonus, which is quite generous. I've been wagering there for many, many years, and never have had any issues whatsoever with payouts. Money is usually processed within 24 hours, and either applied to your bank account, or credit card, depending on the mode of deposit which best suits your personal needs. Hope this helps.

You can wager in an OTB location (if they have them by you) or you can wager online at places like TVG.com if it's legal in your state.

Go Messier!!

This is why I don’t ever bet much on the horses. Because 80-1 long shots don’t ever win the KY
Derby. Right? 😁

Admittedly, the race was as entertaining as all hell!

What a race! I know of one person that placed a bet on Rich Strike but haven't heard how much they won.
