2018 Bensell Triple Crown Challenge

Post by A_B » Fri May 04, 2018 2:45 pm

Sorry guys. To make it easy for derby, you have $20 bucks to bet. See old threads for other rules, but the Derby is the easiest. You MUST best your entire $20.


Types of bets available will be
- Win, Place, Show
- Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta (including Box bets for all exotics)
All bets bust be $2 minimum bet (though you can do $1 exacta/trifecta boxes which make the total bet over $2) with the exception of the Superfecta, which will be a minimum of 0.10

List your bets in order. Since I likely wont be able to double check, and if for some reason you go over the $20, I will take the bets listed in order up to $20 and will reduce/increase last eligible bet if you are over the amount. If your bet is in here by time race goes off it will count.

Final odds will be dictated at post time, below are for reference only.

Post Horse Odds
1 Firenze Fire 50/1
2 Free Drop Billy 30/1
3 Promises Fulfilled 30/1
4 Flameaway 30/1
5 Audible 8/1
6 Good Magic 12/1
7 Justify 3/1
8 Lone Sailor 50/1
9 Hofburg 20/1
10 My Boy Jack 30/1
11 Bolt d'Oro 8/1
12 Enticed 30/1
13 Bravazo 50/1
14 Mendelssohn 5/1
15 Instilled Regard 50/1
16 Magnum Moon 6/1
17 Solomini 30/1
18 Vino Rosso 12/1
19 Noble Indy 30/1
20 Combatant 50/1

Mess up? That paid like a boss. 4th horse should always be longer odds.

Loved the replay showing Smith just waving the whip so the horse could see it.

I am also not a julep fan. There’s a recipe out there that ends up with throwing all ingredients out but bourbon which sounds right.

But bourbon >>>>>>>>>> vodka

Standings after Derby

Player - Proceeds (Minimum Bet for Preakness [Half of Proceeds rounded down to nearest $2 plus $20])
Sabo - 50.60 ($44)
WLU_lax - 18.20 ($28)
Rass - $7.80 ($22)
Duff - $5.80 ($22)
Pruitt - 0 ($20)
Ljam - 0 ($20)
Brian - 0 ($20)
Sancarlos - 0 ($20)
BSF - 0 ($20)

REMEMBER: You can still join. You would have $20 to bet on Preakness. It's just like you were in but lost it all like so many of us. I will try to post odds/Post Positions for Preakness but I am having a hell of a time getting one that isn't blocked.

So half to win and half to place? Or all to place? Technically a place bet is a Win or Place bet, so just want to clarify.
