I am snacking on Derby Pie and sipping on an Ale 8 Freeze (a more...palatable take on a Mint Julep). We're hoping one of us will be sober enough to grill burgers a little later. I am also hoping that some of my wagers pay off. At the last minute I put some money in TVG and placed some straightforward bets. This will be the most I've ever bet on a race. Considering how cheap I am, it still isn't that much. I haven't wagered a dime on Dunkirk, which might be my mistake. But you can't take them all, and of the talented ones in this field, I just don't take to him like I do to the others.
If by some amazing miracle Pioneerof the Nile and Advice come in 1-2, you should be able to hear me screaming a few states away. That is a purely sentimental play, because both of those kids were in the Futurity at Keeneland last fall, so I've been following them for a long freaking time. Had Eddie and Terrain also made it to the gate, I'd have bet a superfecta.
