The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday the first of the Triple Crown. I don't follow horse racing myself but I always try to make time to watch the Derby. The Super Bowl is by far the biggest single event in American Sports. It's gotten to the point where it's now SB week and there's big parties for the well heeled, celebrities etc... But the Derby is the same way those box seats probably cost as much as a ticket for the Super Bowl. And the stadiums are huge I think Churchill Downs holds 150,000. Really. For reasons that I don't understand I like watching the women in their derby hats But that's the extent of my knowledge. I don't have the slightest idea about how to bet on the horses. I do realize that the thoroughbreds are magnificent creatures, people say they are great athletes, and they probably are. They say that the jockeys are good athletes but I wouldn't know. But for 2 and a half minutes it is exciting. If there is anyone on here who knows something about horse racing I'd like to learn something from you.
