Common Racetrack Touts
The editors have gathered on the first Saturday in May for nearly the last 20 years to take part in one of the greatest sporting events: The Kentucky Derby.
Our racing bloodlines runs deep: The Blue Grass State is in our pedigree and one of us shares a birthday with the immortal Secretariat.
With that in mind we offer a pick for the casual race fan for the 135th renewal of this great American tradition:
NOWHERE TO HIDE breaks from the 18 hole and jockey Sean Bridgmohan should have him forwardly placed as the field hits the clubhouse turn. With the late scratch of expected post time favorite I WANT REVENGE, this race looks wide open.
A decided long shot trained by Hall of Famer Nick Zito, this runner should go off at huge odds. Maybe 50-1.
Bloodline followers will notice his sire: VINDICATION.
We’re putting a wager of $10.00 to win and place on him and if he wins the roses, proceeds will be donated to the Robert E. Wone Memorial Trust.
But more important that cashing a nice ticket is the hope all the horses and jockeys make it home safely today. Good luck players.
