this was the first year I really kinda paid attention. so much excitement for 2 minutes of racing. sorry you didn't hit. my buddy and I put up a bet on a superfecta. came no where close haha.
My roommate went in the morning and put some down on Bodemeister and Union Rags for the exacta. He didn't know I wanted to bet so he didn't wake me up. I was going to put $25 on I'll Have Another/Bodemeister exacta, or at least $20 on I'll Have Another. I would have been so happy, haha. When I saw the horse's name and that the race was on Cinco de Mayo, I was with it all the way, haha.
My roommate was so pissed though cause Bodemeister was in the lead the entire time, and had a six/seven length lead at the stretch, so he's just yelling "Bodemeister!" at the top of his lungs over and over, and then he just dropped to his knees in silence and stared at the screen when he came in second, hahaha.
I remember at the 2010 Breeder's Cup
, my friend had put a ton of money on Zenyatta to win and he almost shit his pants during the race. Easily one of the most exciting races I've ever seen. Zenyatta came back from last place and almost won.
