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...
You did well Aaron as Flashback is now being offered at 75-1 at the Wynn.
