I got Epicenter, Messier, and Zandon with a $2 exactly box, (ALWAYS box your exactas) and for a long-shot W/P/S I took Tiz The Bomb across the board.

I often box, but if feeling lucky, I put one on top of three or so. You can double the base bet that way and hope THAT MOTHERFARKING NAG doesn't come in second.

In this case, I'd probably box. One on top of others works best with a clear favorite. You need to double the base bet to get anything worthwhile back. Without one of those, boxing sounds right.

And as the great Harvey Pack used to say, "May the Horse Be With You."

NBC like "well, we could have just cut to commercial before the race, but well, we prefer to just listen to our white viewers too"

"Good to hear the cheer of the crowd after those traditions"  Ouch.

I didn't end up betting because I'm lazy and didn't want to setup a new online gambling account after reading about it. Was tempted because then I could bet again on the Ascot but again, lazy.

Had i bet, it would have just been W/P/S on Epicenter, W/P/S on Smile Happy, and a boxed exacta on those two. Just 2 bucks so 10 bucks total.

Damnit I bet everything left in my account on Taiba and know I find out the jockey is old as shiat?

Too bad this race doesn't have blinkers. Could throw them off in the turns by leaving them on.

I remembered the race in the nick of time  as they were getting in the boxes, thought I'd missed it.

The longest shot?! I love it!

He ran like he was angry. His strides in the stretch were visibly longer than the others. And then, after he goes balls out, for his trouble they wanted to slow him down. He probably would have done another lap had they let him, he was so pissed off.

Lol that's awesome.

With that win, even my lowly sperm doubled in price.
 
2022-05-07 7:11:11 PM  
good lord what a great race.

I mean all of my bets were blown up by that horse, but i'm kind of cool with it.

80-1, and it was 35-1 on the bottom of the super. Also noticed they weren't letting you do 10cent boxes this year, so man, will that pay out.
