Editor's Note--Las Vegas has done a pretty awesome job of making this first Saturday in May some sort of sports national holiday over the past few years. This year is really no exception. Thus, me, Big D, the glitterati, A-listers, and all those who are someone, or CONSIDER themselves someone, will be heading there. Right now!!!!! Seriously, we're going. Oh, when we last saw you a month ago? Big D had absolutely destroyed the NCAA March Madness. Now he's got some horsie picks (with some help from moi!), AND funky NBA plays. I'll wait for you to finish passing out from excitement.....ok....you're back? Good. Here we come. If any of you faithful followers are in the Southern Nevada region this weekend? Feel free to join us! Now the Big Man has the floor. Here we really go....-R.B.
Richie, we LOVE this 1st weekend in May. As do you. Happy Birthday. Let's cut the pleasantries. And get to the money makin.....
BRAD COX may not be a household name, but he is in our household. VERY fancy horse trainer. And by fancy, we mean GOOD. He's got a cat named IRAD ORTIZ, one of the best jockeys on earth, riding for him in today's KENTUCKY OAKS. This is for the best young lady horses around. The 6. KELLY'S HUMOR. She's 30-1. ORTIZ/COX at 30-1? Thank you! Another Northeast connection is trainer Mark Hennig with "Jersey Joe" Bravo on the lovely lady, #11 LIL MISS LILLY. She's also 30-1. We're gonna do an exacta box 6-11. When that comes in? You'll be buying that land you always wanted to buy. Maybe that land was the isle of Manhattan. Boom!
Now the funky NBA. Young Kyle B, a Big D fan and faithful follower, turned us on to this. So when there's a team down 0-2 in the NBA playoffs? Take THAT team that's down 0-2 in the FIRST HALF of Game 3. Trust us folks. There's something to this. That team might be junk, and might not even win the 3rd game in the end. But for whatever reason, they show up in the 1st half of Game 3. So that means the NEW ORLEANS BROW PELICANS+2 in the first half of Game 3 tonight, and The PHILADELPHIA 76ERS and TORONTO RAPTORS in their 1st halves of Game 3 on Saturday!!
Finally, "My Old Kentucky Home" is blaring in the background. THE KENTUCKY DERBY is Saturday. What a wonderful spectacle. The hats, the mint juleps, the whole world watching. Yeah that's all nice. How do we make money? The 12 ENTICED, friends. That's who we're playing at some obscene price of 30-1. VERY fancy horse trainer. And by fancy, we mean GOOD! KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN. Training for the Godolphin Stable. They like to spend on good ponies. ENTICED got bumped and probably got scared in his last race but still finished 2nd. They had HIGH hopes for this boy when they bought him. He'll be fightin. We're playin. But we also include the 6,7,and 11, in some exotics. Hows that? Why the 6,7,11? Cause those are the ONLY cats (horsies) that have broken the magical 100+ Beyer speed figure in the field. So the 12 to win, with a 6-7-11-12 exacta and trifecta box. For those who are brave and think all 4 will make it in the top 4 (um we do), a 6-7-11-12 superfecta box!
So the Happy Birthday, Kentucky Oaks, Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo recap: Kentucky Oaks: 6-11 Exacta Box, NBA: NEW ORLEANS PELICANS (tonight), PHILADELPHIA 76ers and TORONTO RAPTORS (Saturday). All 1st half wagers only, remember. Kentucky Derby: 12 Win. 6-7-11-12 exacta, trifecta, and superfecta boxes.
Now before we hop into a sleek jet to Nevada, Lets do it like Lawrence Welk used to introduce it......"Andah 1 andah 2"....
Good luck. God bless. Enjoy this power packed weekend of winners!
