I made my first (and hopefully only) Kentucky Derby Future Book bet..I have been very fortunate and very lucky betting one horse a year in the past (Giacomo 100/1, Fu Peg 100/1, Silver Charm 30/1 and Real Quiet 40/1)...
Every year I wait until I am n away by a perfromance and try to get in before the odds get too low, the years I don't see anything that captivates me, I pass...
Flashback looked like a serious horse in the paddock, a Tapit that carried a lot of weight (most are light boned), then won with consummate ease, beating the best maiden field I have seen in So. Calif. this year, including a Shirreffs/Moss trainee that I also loved the looks of in the paddock...Flashback is a full brother to Zazu, looks like he will run all day, and is trained by a guy who has won three Ky. Derbies already... I loved him in the paddock and I LOVED what I saw on the track, he won like a future superstar...I bet $100 @ 150/1 on Flashback... It is a long way away, and takes a LOT of luck!
Bet in Las Vegas at William Hill....
I would rather bet now and take a shot at the right price then wait and watch the price come down...Greatness generally shows itself early if you are looking for it, and I trust what I saw in the Paddock then on the racetrack.
For those of you who want to watch Flashback's race, he ran at Hollywood Park, 12/8 race 7...coincidentally, Fusaichi Pegasus made his debut at the same distance, I believe on the same day, 12 years earlier and I made my Future Book bet on him the day before he ran...
Try the Mob Museum in Las Vegas.
Thank God for the Federal Reserve. You can't have big government or big wars without them.
You did well Aaron as Flashback is now being offered at 75-1 at the Wynn.
