One of us was a big winner at The Derby....

....and one of us was not....

The winner was Dave.....seen here studying the Derby information sheets.

Dave and his friend, Dean, pooled their money and bet on the main Derby race together.  They did a trifecta box with the following horses:  Animal Kingdom, Nehro, and Mucho Macho Man.  If you followed the race, you know that those three horses finished 1,2,and 3...making them the winners of $2000. !!!!
The winnings will be split two ways and then Uncle Sam will take out his share of the prize....so, they will both end up with over $800.  Not to bad for a day's fun!

I, on the other hand, made a $6 bet for Mucho Macho Man to win, place or show.
He came in third.
I won $7.

Maybe next time I should study the programs a little bit more.
