Getting Ready For The Derby

On her Facebook wall, Kerri Thoreson posts: “Well, bummer. Saturday is the Kentucky Derby, run for the roses, the first leg of horse racing's Triple Crown. This year the race won't be available at the Greyhound Park, not for viewing or for paramutual wagering. It's the one time (okay one of three times) a year when I bet on a horse race so this is disappointing. Especially if a long shot gray horse wins!”

Question: Have you ever bet on the Kentucky Derby?
