Odds on favorite is Big Brown but who do you pair him with? Carbunkle the bookie likes an exacta box with Big Brown and Denis of Cork.
Tri box with BB, Denis of Cork and Casino Drive.

Would be nice to see a horse win the triple crown thought Smarty Jones was going to be it a couple years ago.


But why eat my vegetables I already know that I am short!

I remember the 1st race, hotter than a Beale St bowl of chili.

But the smart money would play a $1 trifecta box ($24)of 4 horses, NOT including Big Brown. If he falters, the payoffs will be astronomical. If he wins, the tri will pay about $9.
I had $50 win on Birdstone in the Belmont when he whacked Smarty Jones.

Ah Reaper a fellow horse junkie too - I also had Birdsong and Smarty in an exacta box on that glorious Saturday also and it paid very nicely as well.

I love watching the Triple Crown races. I certainly wouldn't consider myself much of a racing fan otherwise.

I was not unhappy that Big Brown didn't win. I think he's a good, maybe great horse, but there didn't seem to be much competition among the three year olds this year.

I was also really steamed at ABC's coverage. You would have thought Big Brown was the only horse in the race. Even after he lost. Stupid stories to fill the time, absolutely nothing about the other horses in the race.
