Did anyone pick the Kentucky Derby winner?


#1

Every year I try to pick the winner of the Kentucky Derby. Never have gotten it right, except this year! And, does anyone know why I picked who I picked?..because of his name ANIMAL KINGDOM! Anyone else pick him to win just because of the name?


#2

Haha- I loved the name also! You should have bet a few $…


#3

Hope you laid a few bucks down on it. He was 20-1 I think.


#4

Me too! Steamboat Lily and I both picked Animal Kingdom to win but only because of his name! :laugh:


#5

Same here! Only because he has such an awesome name!!!


#6

lol…my DH told me earlier that day that he was “picking” Animal Kingdom because of our trip later this month AND then he won. Now all I’ve heard is that I should have let him place a bet. lol

We bid $10 on AK … and won a cool $214

We made the bet during the Oaks and came back to pick up the loot !!!

Katy always like to look at the ponies in the paddock…

We live 15 minutes from Churchill Downs …

I talked a guy I am working with down here in Deerfield Beach to betting on AK and he did at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood and ended up taking me to dinner tonight on his winnings. He didn’t say exactly how much he bet or won but it was in the thousands was all he said.

Your so lucky to live close by, the Kentucky Derby is on my bucket list.

Mine too! In fact, I was so pumped about this year, I think I may have DH talked into taking me there next year. Wall, will need details on where to stay, and the ins and outs, as I have never been to any type of horseracing at all. And, that was the topic before the race. How do you place a bet. I really wanted to, but had absolutely no clue where to go and how to do it.
