Just printed the PPs for the whole card. Gonna handicap at my desk today at work.

Anyone like anything early, got an Oaks DD? I think there is a horse that is supposed to be a lock for the Oaks @ very low odds.

I gave been doing my handicapping since this morning. I will bet the Oaks/Derby double and the full card tomorrow.

Only 1 horse racing book in ALL of Atlantic City (Borgata).

A gambling city, and it's the only place to place a Derby bet.

I like to play a lot of cheap exotics in the Derby and cross my fingers. Hit the tri 2 years ago for over a dime.

I didn't handicap the Oaks but I like California Chrome in the Derby so I'm getting exposure to CC by playing:

$10 Oaks/Derby DD with 13/5

Also, since this Oaks favorite is supposedly good enough to be 1/2 aghainst the men tomorrow I've got an additional:

$2 Oaks/Derby DD with 13/4,10,13,18-20

Like IAG i'll likely only play exotics tomorrow. I like CC too much to pick a horse to beat him.

They closed every OTB in NYC.

The only places in a 25 mile radius to bet the horses is Aqueduct & Meadowlands.

Aqueduct has become a major shit hole that closes for simulcasting on random days.

The subway out their is also constantly fucked up.

Best thing for NYC players to do is play online through NYRA.

Calvin loves that rail. Wins another. Whose he on in the derby? Ride on Curlin?
