    Any horse race fans here? I'm not all that into it, I bet on the belmont, preakness, and kentucky derby every year though. Won quite a bit of money in the Kentucky derby picking Big Brown, but now hes favored by so much its not even worth placing a bet.

    Casino Drive the only real contender other then Brown was scratched with a bruise or something on his hoof.

    What do you guys think? who do you have winning it? Think big brown will capture the Triple crown for the first time since 1978???

    I bet on Icabod Crane and Ready's echo to win. My odds should be around 10-1 for both when my bookie gets to the gate. I won over 600$ on the Belmont before when I bet Birdstone at 33 to 1. So this is my favorite race.

    If you won quite a bit of money on the kentucky derby you must have put down a pretty good amount of money. He was favored at 4 to 1 if I remember correctly. Most sights i've seen you can bet on the other horses and essentially take big brown out of the race. If your horse wins or he finishes 2nd to big brown you win. I think big brown will win today unless something disasterous happens.
