    Re: Paddy O'Prado shows at Kentucky Derby

    He came on strong in the stretch, and it looked like the jockey had to adjust his goggles which may have cost him 2nd place, but I'm no expert. A very exciting race for the DM area owners and I thought I saw Jason walk past the camera when the horses were being led out to the track.

    Yeah, congrats to Jason and the other owners. I think a lot of people around Iowa were excited to watch the race because of the connection.

    Re: Paddy O'Prado shows at Kentucky Derby

    Thought P.O.P. had a great shot to win the race. The owners should still be proud. Third place winnings of $200,000 isn't bad--thats almost half its winnings previously-- and well on its way to winning over a million dollars this year........Too bad for me my 4-2-1 Trifecta didn't come home.

    Re: Paddy O'Prado shows at Kentucky Derby

    I had $10 on the 4-10 exacta today. Would have been a nice night if that would have come through. Also had $10 on Paddy to show and got $37 on the deal. I was pretty excited toward the end of the race. If I'm reading the odds correctly I was a length away from coming home with around 3 grand tonight.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    CoachDags texted me this morning and told me to take Paddy to show. So this afternoon at Prairie Meadows, I took Paddy to show. Good times.

    had POP's trip been as clean as the #4 horse, he could have been the winner today. too many times he had to alter his course today, whereas #4 really had smooth sailing wire to wire. watch it again and watch POP's course - amazing that he almost got the Place finish despite the path.

    coach posted the same message in the betting thread. I had thoughts of going to buy a $10 show ticket myself!
