    So to all my meister horse racing fans out there.....any thoughts?

    I am in the business and have developed such a passion for this sport. I play the future pools (sucker bet, I know) and have the great fortune of having a few live tickets. I purchase 5 in each pool. Mind you there are only 300 or so potential eligibles, so I am proud to have 12 live tickets out of 15 purchased.:) Maybe I am psychic?:p

    I love Bodemeister! Have had my eye (and ears too) on this horse since February. He's one of the favorites in the ML now, yet I have him for wins at 27 to 1 and 22 to 1. That would be cool!

    I also have Union Rags. There has been so much hype about this horse. I have him at 8 to 1.

    Love Creative Cause too and have him at high odds in 2 of the pools also.

    My horse that I have been dedicated to and hope he proves me right is Alpha. Have him in all 3 pools. This is another horse I have had my eye on since January in my DRF stable.

    I will be loyal and play those horses above.

    My other live tickets are Rousing Sermon, Laison(2) & Sabre Cat.

    Hope my fellow handicappers offer their input!

    I'm going with Dullahan as the dead closer and hoping for Hansen cause I'm a sucker for the grey.

    Bodemeister, Union Rags, Alpha - all will be on my ticket along with Take Charge Indy (Calvin Borel is the best rail rider ever). I have futures on Hansen, Bodemeister and Alpha. Usually I do futures and they end up not running. LOL!

    Conker, you can get the race program from You must register/login in order to see the link. or You must register/login in order to see the link..

    This race will be simulcast in Hong Kong at 6;24 am. I shall make a bet and watch the replay while having breakfast on Sunday. I know none of the horses so will just put a wager according to my gut feeling.:D

    I always think about betting the derby, but I'm always too late to get signed up, verified, etc. at TwinSpires or TVG . (That one - run by Betfair now, I think) has live pony races and replay broadcasts on my TV.)

    Not that I understand how to bet on horse racing, anyway. It's as much Greek to me as craps. LOL

    ... good luck to all. And I hope all the ponies stay healthy and well.

    The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports has not often been missed by me, at least on television.

    I can remember how excited my mom and dad were when Northern Dancer won, a Canadian horse, and that was way back in 1965.

    Everyone was excited about Secretariat, back when I was in highschool.

    Back in 1974, my dad won a Lionstone Decanter of 12 year old Rye, with Cannonade, the 100th Kentucky Derby winner in 1974 at a mess draw. I opened it in 2000, man that was some smooth whiskey. US versions contain bourbon.

    I'll try to make it down to the OTB tomorrow and put some money down. I think my record win has been $12 on a $2 bet.

    Best online betting site is Twinspires.com. Pays same odds as onsite betting. No juice, all bets, exotic etc and will send you a check next day or pay back to your bank account.

    Have had an account there for years with no problems.

    @James - you sound like me. I won a $2500 handicapping contest at Sam Houston Race Track by picking names I liked. Won a pick 5 at Hollywood Park with a 30-1 shot cause I liked the name. LOL!

    I hit it big too, just under 10k, had to go with the my homeboy and horse, both started out of Hastings race track here in Vancouver. It was a welcome win, been getting killed and have basically put myself on a couple month break, even with the win gonna see this break through from the slots and VP.

    Congrats to James & me_and_ed!:thumbsup:

    I think Bodemeister will take the shorter distance in the Preakness if he runs. I'll Have Another ran a stellar race, winning fair and square. I wish him and his young jockey all the luck to grab a long awaited triple crown.;) I usually attend every year but not this one because.......

    After being in the racing industry all these years, I started a new job Monday. Worked 80+ hrs in the last 7 days during the transition. That's why I have been absent on the thread I started. Betcha some of you thought I was so sad about my Bodemeister, huh?:p !
