I cast a vote for Audible.

However, I use a very scientific method to handicap. I watch the horses head to the gate and when one winks at me...I place a bet on him/her...so my choice could change.

I also use the very scientific method of eenie, meenie, miney, mo on a field this large. But don't spread this around...it's a trade secret. ^-^

Thanks for the heads up @Freya . I didn't know about the free audio book.

There are a lot of links here and photos of the horse wearing Audible insignia coats

http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/03/investing/audible-horse-amazon-kentucky-derby/index.html

Amazon doesn't own the horse though. I thought they did

Good for him even if he wasn't who I picked.

The old dude knows how to ride.

BTW Bolt d'Oro needs to get a new trainer. The one he's got now is a bit of a blowhard.

That guy would be a blowhard in any weather. He needed to get a shirt & tie on and knock off the blue collar routine - he's worth millions.

Yep, I was surprised when I saw the sorry state of the track that a favorite came in. It was long shots earlier for the most part.

The horse I like showed...so I would have only lost 20 cents on an across the board bet.

The long shot I picked is probably still running. lol

Oh well. :shrug:

So much for picking a horse because he had a musical name. :shrug:

Dead last!

(Good thing I wasn't being serious in the first place, and even better that I don't bet  ^-^).

@berdie , Audible announced that it would give out free audiobooks anyway. I downloaded mine. Missed the race. Spent the day with my mom, I’ll have to find it on you tube.

HEY! @musiclady

I can also spell it!  (I've loved the 4th since I was a kid.)

...and for the race, I loved the purple silks and taciturn jockey (Ryan Moore).


But as much as I wanted him to win, I knew he wouldn't do well.  I picked Justify.  :-)
