If anybody had any money on Giacomo... congrats. 50-1 odds. Not a bad return on your money, eh?

Too bad you didn't put your 100 on Giacomo to win Punisher woulda been a nice 5K pay-day!!!

The superfecta was $1.7 million. 8-o I surprisingly don't know a whole lot about horse racing, but I can't believe that kind of payout comes along to often, even on the superfecta.

I have only been to a track a few times and a couple of times to OTB so I don't know a lot about it either but I'm pretty sure payoffs on a Superfecta are not normally that large. Also it's not like a throwing $2 down. The size of the bet depends on the race and if the payoff was that much I'd imagine the bet was pretty sizable.

One of the things I want to do in my life is go to the Kentucky Derby. The atmosphere there is just so incredible. And yeah congrats on whoever had that 50-1 horse. That horse has nothing on Smarty Jones though. War Emblem wasn't bad a few years ago either.

Horses running a circle? One trip around?

I'd rather watch butterfly hunting or something. :-b
