I go to the off-track betting with a buddy of mine every now and then. He lives there 7 days a week, making a very decent living handicapping races. He hit the Exacta on the derby by betting the horse who was second place as First with ALL second, or Second with ALL first. Needless to say the 50-1 shot beating his horse out for first place was the best possible outcome for him.
Ibet that exacta paid a couple thousand, good for him. I like Freisan Fire to win the next race.
