Derby Time

April 29th, 2009

While horse racing is not a widespread passion like football, Joe knows the Kentucky Derby gets massive ratings in the Tampa Bay market.

Joe also knows many of you love to gamble, especially on the big races like the Derby. So Joe is committed to offering some guidance.

First, you can bet on Saturday’s Kentucky Derby at Derby Lane in St. Petersburg starting on Friday at 10 a.m.

For you novices, that means you can drop $20 on a horse the day before the race, then go home and bring the ticket to the Kentucky Derby party you’re going to and impress your buddies.

Second, you can spend the whole day Saturday partying with thousands at Derby Lane, feasting at the Derby Club and wagering on all the races at Churchill Downs, as well as local greyhound races and more. It’s a party you don’t want to miss.

Check back Friday for Joe’s Derby selections. Yes, Joe spent four years as a horse racing beat writer, so there will be some meat behind the picks.
