Post Derby Wrap Up

The good fortunes of profitable wagering at Churchill this week had to end eventually and Derby Day proved to be the jumping-off point.

Although Sonja and I were at a Derby Party and enjoyed that immensely, I was able
to get our wagers down on one of the online wagering services.

We took our top four picks in the races we outlined and did a $1 exacta box and $1 trifecta box on each. It cost us $36 per person per race...or a total outlay of $216 each.

For her investments, Sonja hit exactly one exacta box that paid $ she was a $175 loser on the day.

I fared a little better, hitting exactas that paid $54.10, $31.50, $62.30 and $6.90.  My payout of $216 returned $ I took a $62 loss on the day.

Neither of us hit a trifecta.

Looking at all three days of wagering, we still showed a profit.

As for the Derby was a perfectly crafted ride by Victor Espinoza for Art Sherman on California Chrome. The time was slow for a Ky. Derby...but the California runner looks to be one that has a shot at Triple Crown immortality.

The Derby Party we attended was a great time and there was plenty of food, beverages, bean bag toss, frisbee and fun. There were jackpots available on each races and there was a rumor floating about that if a fella or filly wanted to toss a couple of dollars down on a horse...that was available, too.

Of course, I wouldn't know a thing about that...
