Derby Day for Bettors Insider's Kentucky Oaks Kentucky Derby Challenge with RT, Chris Garrity, God's Tipster
Each of our three handicappers got $50 to bet on the Oaks and $50 more to bet on the Derby. They can bet those dollars however they want - all on the winner, a few exactas, 10 $5 horses to show – and the winner is the handicapper with the most money after the Kentucky Derby.
Chris Garrity has the lead after Day 1 as his pick, Secret Oath, won the race and the lillies, but wanted no part of the lillies. Garrity's $40 win bet on Secret Oath paid $216 and he still has a $10 Secret Oath / Zozos bet in play.
RT's longshot Hidden Connection ($50) finished out of the money.
God's Tipster's win bet and exacta on longshot Nostalgic did not pay off. Nostalgic finished out of the money.
So RT and God's Tipster have $216 to make up in the Kentucky Derby.
Chris Garrity: He could be a weasel and bet his $50 on a favorite to show, but instead he's putting all $50 on Japanese longshot Crown Pride.
RT: $44 to win on Crown Pride. $1 exacta box on Crown Pride, Barber Road, Tiz The Bomb.
God's Tipster: $50 to win on the Todd Pletcher-trained Mo Donegal, with Irad Ortiz aboard.
