Special events still get a lot of attention on BangTheBook Radio, even over the summer months, and few events are as special as the Kentucky Derby. Host Adam Burke called in a brilliant handicapping mind in Brian Blessing, who, as it turns out, is quite an avid horse player. The guys gave out some general horse betting tips for listeners on what to look for and what to play at their local tracks on any random weekend and then applied some of those concepts to the Kentucky Derby.

Justify is the favorite, with contenders like Audible, Mendelssohn, Good Magic, Bolt d'Oro, Magnum Moon, and Vino Rosso all looking to come out victorious in the Run for the Roses. Adam and Brian touched on all of these horses and discussed some good betting strategies. They talked about handicapping both jockeys and trainers and also about what makes betting the Kentucky Derby such a challenge. You don't want to miss this highly-informative podcast with free picks, predictions, and top-notch insight.
