Re: 2018 BC Tickets - presale today

I am not sure what type of seating is good to watch the finish line? Some seating prices are :shock: . I am debating if I should go one day when it returns to Churchill, or just stay home and be glued to the TV. I was told section 316 and 317 near the finish line are reserved for owners, breeders, ...

Does anyone know if there is a 2018 Derby Day wagering menu available?

What are the typical Derby day minimums for Pick 6 and Superfecta?

Thanks in advance.

Breeders Cup Tickets

A little ahead of myself, but for good reason. Anyone have any tips/tricks/advice on how to get nice seats (3rd Floor Clubhouse or better) for the 2018 Breeders Cup? I'm trying to set a plan in motion for a good friend who beat cancer this past year and I want to make it an once in a lifetime event....

Weird Pimlico TV Coverage Today

Anyone else seeing an odd timing of the Preakness schedule on their TV schedules?

I've got Dish Network in Cincinnati.

I'm seeing coverage on NBCS from 2:30 to 5:00.
I'm seeing coverage on NBC from 5:00 to 6:00.
The Preakness has a post time of 6:45pm.

Am I missing something?

Just curious if you will share what lead you to eliminate Exaggerator?

Will this list stay the same regardless of track condition, fast vs muddy?

Re: Matt's Interactive Derby Dozen 2016

It's also an immense crapshoot, and it seems to get tougher every year, as horses start later and run with less frequency. For me, it's the race I least want to handicap, as the randomness factor is extreme, and the picture seems the murkiest. I disagree that the randomness is extreme if we are loo...

Re: 2016 Derby Lists

Why do 20 horses need to start in the Derby? Do horses like Oscar Nominated, Tom's Ready, Majesto, Trojan Nation and Fellowship really make this a more enjoyable race? While I agree on face value that it does not appear we have 15 (or more) Kentucky Derby quality horses in this 3yo crop ... the 20 ...
