Gotta love a horse named "Big Brown". Sounds like something that follows a large mexican dinner...

Never watch horse racing, but I turned on the tube and it's on now. I figure I might as well watch it. I got $20 they run around in an oval.

$5.89 million bet on Big Brown. Wow that's some crazy money on a steroid injected animal.

That was quick. Weeks of hype for a very anti-climatic race. Too bad for the winner, no one gives a chit about him.

I won mine off of the "Will Big Brown win the Triple Crown" wager, put $1,000 on it. OTOH I'm kicking myself for not putting some on the field though with a 516:1 payout. Damn. :shake:

As they were coming in after 3/4 mile, I thought for sure Big Brown would pull it out. Just waiting, waiting, waiting, then quickly he fell behind and Da'Tara kept pulling ahead. I was pretty surprised.

Good for you, I wish I was getting odds. On the War Path Owes me $1000. I'm 2-0 in casino cash bets now. If someone would only take my 1000 bet that the Celtics will take down the Lakers bet.

I dont think I woulda watched it if I never lived with my girlfriend and her four horses. But the jockey did the right thing, he coulda finished but he didnt want to push Big Brown and have him possibly get injured or worse.

The CP casino doesn't give odds, payout depends on how much is bet on either side. If you click on the sports betting link in the casino it explains how it works.

I would hate to win a TC and be injured, or maybe no injury and no other shot.
