Anyone up for an informal contest on the Derby, that race only?

We each get a $100 mythical bankroll and can bet it in any way we want to - $100 show ticket, box supers, multiple win bets.....anything on the Derby only.

1st Prize - Bragging rights
2nd Prize - You get to play again next year
3rd Prize - A tip o' the hat to your handicapping skills

When you make mind bets, all you can lose is your mind.

Sounds like fun.

Maybe after the race, each winning poster can re-post their post and results so we don't have to scour the thread.

You actually thought of this on your own?

Can we increase the mythical bankroll to $167? I need at least that much in order to have adequate coverage in that race.

A secondary challenge might be to post what type of wager Gus is doing with $167 before he posts his bet...:). If I know Gus it would be $2 Superfecta part- wheels...but that would not add up to $167 so maybe $1 Superfecta part- wheels...?

I will make 9 other $100 dollar mind bets and only lose 10% of my mind..
