Editor's Note--Welp, No winner in the Derby. As it turns out, the way to handicap that race was to take the 2 favorites and put the 3 or 4 30-1 shots into a triple box. But hindsight is 20/20. Now we go to Maryland. Baltimore to be exact. Ahhh, the PREAKNESS! And today the ladies run in the BLACK EYED SUSAN! Maybe Big D can help us with both eh? Oh, and after YALE won the Hockey championship? They could win the lacrosse one! Anyhow, enough about me, Big D the flo is yoze!!--R.B.
Richie, YALE plays Syracuse in the lacrosse on Saturday in the "elite 8" or as some might say, the quarterfinals of the national championship. And as a "Big Dick's Picks" first, we will play YALE at those 7-5 odds--that look EXTREMELY--fishy to beat the #1 ranked Syracuse. Call us crazy but Syracuse?! They of the MANY lacrosse national championships? Laying a mere 7-5 to YALE?!? You are welcome Richie B.
However, today we have the BLACK EYED SUSAN horse race. Race 10. Pimlico Race Course. 4:47pm Eastern. We like the looooooooooooooooong odds for these fillies. A little local flavor too. #4 PETIT TRIANON and #5 WALKWITHAPURPOSE. #4 is 20-1. #5 is 5-1. Put those 2 together in an exacta box and you will make hundreds, perhaps thousands, maybe even millions, when those 2 come in. (Probably hundreds if you put a "2 spot" on it. But as a reminder, Big D doesnt play a 2 spot.)
Tomorrow in the Preakness. Race 12 Pimlico Race Course. 6:20pm eastern. Well, the favorite did win the Kentucky Derby this year, but he was NOT a big favorite. NOW he is the pretty big favorite. But you know what? The favorites win a lot at the Preakness. He's also not facing the most difficult crowd ever assembled. ORB is our choice. But 1-1 don't get you rich. Therefore we will play some exotic investments as well. #4 DEPARTING and #8 GOVERNOR CHARLIE look to be next best. So let's try a 1-4-8 exacta box and a 1-4-8 triple box as well shall we? We shall!
The happy recap today: Pimlico Race 10. The BLACK EYED SUSAN. 4-5 exacta box. Tomorrow lacrosse: YALE+7-5 vs Syracuse. horsie: Pimlico Race 12. PREAKNESS STAKES. 1 to win. 1-4-8 exacta box. 1-4-8 triple box.
We foresee the race to be run like the winner does in the video below. If you are not getting goosebumps around the 1:45 mark, you may need to get revived. Since you arent breathing. Good luck and god bless!
