So this Saturday is shaping up as one of the all time gambling Saturdays in the history of Saturdays. We obviously have McGregor vs. Mayweather which I’m in Vegas for and then we have the Travers at Saratoga. And yes it’s somewhat bittersweet that I can’t be there for the signature weekend at the Spa. But life goes on and so do I. I don’t even care that I’m in Vegas I’m still betting Saratoga with my NYRA Bets account because it’s easier than using the sportsbook. I don’t have to keep walking to the window and I don’t need a shit ton of cash on me.

Now for the important part. Who am I going to bet on? Always Dreaming that’s who. The Kentucky Derby Winner has essentially thrown out 2 duds in his last 2 races and then this happened. I ate pizza with Always Dreaming’s owner at Saratoga. We swapped stories about pizza spots in NY and we talked horse racing. Then after a couple bottles of red win I looked him dead in the eye and said “I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE JIM DANDY! WE ARE BRINGING THIS HORSE BACK FOR THE TRAVERS! END OF STORY” So how can I not bet on a horse that I am directly responsible for entering in the race? The answer is you can’t.

The Pick – Always Dreaming

*I made up that part about telling the owner of Always Dreaming to enter him in the Travers. I did meet him though and he liked pizza.
