My degenerate horse race gambling buddies and I keyed Warrior's Reward in the early Pick 4 last Friday on Kentucky Oaks Day. Sure enough he won.
Then Calvin Borel climbs aboard Miss Isella and clobbers One Caroline who was at 3-5. Watch the crazy goof go down on the rail and get pounded, but smashes One Caroline at 9-1. I had the ALL in the fourth race of the Pick 4, so this was beautiful.
Think I was smart enough to have Calvin in the Derby? I was alive in the Pick 4 going into the Derby. The 50 cent Pick 4 paid $10,221.15. Not a chance. Like my dad used to say, "Son, a dreamer lives to dream."
