Last weekend, Dan Borislow, of Palm Beach, Fla., won more than $6.6-million as the only winner of the Gulfstream Park Rainbow Pick 6. He did it, not by any great handicapping, but by smart betting.
The most exciting race in horse racing is when a Triple Crown is on the line in the Belmont Stakes. We will have that this year thanks to California Chrome. His victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness again have put us on the precipice of sports history.
I think the best horse, California Chrome, will win the Preakness and set up a Triple Crown try in the Belmont. If I were jockey Victor Espinoza, I would practically ignore the others horses and ride his own race.
Extremely dry conditions and temperatures over 100 degrees have led officials to cancel racing Thursday at Santa Anita.
There was no doubt that California Chrome, as a 5-2 odds favorite, was the people’s choice to win the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs.
The Kentucky Derby is the one race that makes everybody a horse racing fan for a day. And if you’re lucky enough to pick the winner, it’s a boast you can live off for the next 51 weeks.
