Louisiana Derby day is a FANtastic day of competition. Makes it even better is if you can cash a couple tickets ! Here are two late plays that we hope can make your walk back to the window Big and Easy .


Sometimes in these exotic wagers we lake to take a low risk high yield swing. In the Fair Grounds Oaks take the 6 Hidden Connection. She is not a huge long shot but Echo Zulu is likely to take MOST of the action here.

Follow that up in the Louisiana Derby with the Keith Desormeaux entry the 3, Call Me Midnight. This Cajun has never won the biggest race in his home state so we are hoping his late closing colt can get there.


Another low risk high yield wager if you play the 10 cent variety ($2.40 box). This race comes up very competitive as is expected for a run of this type. Million dollars and trips to Kentucky Derby on the line means these boys are bringing it. Here is our top 4.

Call Me Midnight- of course we are taking him to be there as he is in our double

Epicenter- front running speed that hopes to break well and take’em all the way

Rattle and Roll- Kenny McPeek trainee could steal this one

Curly Tail- Dallas Stewart has a knack for getting long shots to run big- he’s the one that could really make this one PAY
