Spend $100, Get $100 with the NYRA

I love no brainer promotions! As long as Christine and I each bet $100 this weekend at the Gotham Stakes, we'll get a $100 account credit from the New York Racing Association which we can use at the Wood Memorial or the Belmont. Of course we're both going to take advantage of this.

Come to the Gotham at the Aqueduct this weekend everyone!

It is the 3rd of the Fifty pointers on the Road to the Derby.

Who to root for???

PP Horse Jockey Trainer ML
1 In Trouble J. Rocco, Jr. A. Dutrow
2 Financial Mogul S. Bridgmohan R. Violette
3 Uncle Sigh C. Nakatani G. Contessa
4 Noble Cornerstone K. Desormeaux W. Ward
5 Monopolize C. DeCarlo T. Pletcher
6 Deceived R. Maragh L. Gyarmati
7 Classic Giacnroll M. Franco L. Guerrero
8 Samraat J. Ortiz R. Violette
9 Extrasexyhippzster J. Pimentel M. Trombetta
10 Master Lightning C. Velasquez T. Pletcher
11 Harpoon I. Ortiz T. Pletcher

Okay so Samraat is probably going to be who I cheer for, but we'll see. People also think Old Sigh will do well. I think I'm going to give Samraat 5$ in the Derby future pool before the race starts, and maybe also 5$ on Havana who will be running in the Swale Stakes in Florida that day instead.

Here is how people were thinking at the end of future pool #2 http://www.kentuckyderby.com/sites/kentuckyderby.com/files/pdfs/2014%20DFW%20Odds%20Pool%202..pdf 

Here are the points so far: http://www.anddownthestretchtheycome.com/kentucky-derby/2014/2/21/5433818/2014-kentucky-derby-points-standings

And remember, if you want to go to the Derby, you can always grab an AA flight to Cincinnati for 4500 BA miles!

PS If you'd rather bet with TVG, they offer a bonus also.
