I've been following and betting on the Kentucky Derby since 1970 ( been to it twice) and yesterday was the best I've ever done!! I have always bet $20.00 on one to two horses and yesterday I went with some friends to a local track here for the "Derby Day" and bet ALL of my $20.00 on one horse this year. And he came in for me and paid 8/1 !!!!!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Orb ran a fantastic race and now I have $200.00+ to get some 'bac with !! Got to get my order together and am gonna try this cellar/mason jar thing that's so popular with you folks Twisted Evil Now I'm getting ready to watch Talladega, another of my fave races, though with different "horses" Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Good job, monbla! I think you'll find that the "cellar / mason jar thing" pays, too.

So you've chosen to cellar bulk. In my tobacco cellar buildup of the last few months 80% has been bulk. You could cellar 20 tins and have 2.5 pounds, but by cellaring bulk, depending on what you buy, you'll have ~4 pounds; that's nearly twice as much! No doubt tins are handy, and washing and filling and labeling jars takes time, but in the end I always go for the tobacco.

I guess this is the appropriate thread to say.. I hauled Orb to the Derby. I am tickled to death for Shug & The Phipps. Bonus: Orb is a direct descendant of the first thoroughbred Mare Granny Phipps ever owned.

Mon... A $36 exacta wheel paid almost a grand..

Here's ya a pic of him with my truck and my codriver Johnny in the background ..

Absolutely awesome, man! Both the horse and the hauling. And for those who know not what Merde de Cheval is, it's French for Pferdescheisse.

Craven I'm rather jaded after just a couple years doing this... Lol
I handled 9 of the 19 starters...

Having said that, Orb is the first horse in along time that actually made me break out a camera..

I'm just tickled for Shug & the Phipps.... And now Monbla too.


Edited in: He's been my avatar pic for a week and a half, just noticed it.

Congrats Monbla. We used to have an OTB here in town that was conveniently (or dangerously) close to my old house. In 2008, I hit the win, show, and exacta. Would have had the trifecta but talked myself out of playing two exotics. Made a bit over $500, but the win was a bit tainted by watching the fate of Eight Belles. A beautiful and incredible horse taken too soon. Looks like you'll get more mileage from your winnings... Mine was almost entirely blown on sushi, sake, and general shenanigans.
