A Zola System Reader’s Guide For The Action On The 137th Kentucky Derby

The Street Hustle

Post time for the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby is estimated to be at 6:24pm.  Over $101 million was wagered on the Derby in 2010 (during a depression no less) and the safe money says even more will be bet on this year’s race.

In an attempt to make the lives of the degenerate gamblers who regularly read the Zola System easier, below are the Vegas odds for each horse at 11:30am PDT (2:30pm EDT).

nce again, various people have asked me which of the above 19 horses has the best chance of paying off big, like I’m some sort of horse racing maven.

However, I do feel a certain amount of responsibility to you dear readers, so I’m going to give you a piece of advice, a tip really, that will guarantee money in your pocket once the 137th Running of the Roses has been entered into the history books.  A tip that comes directly from the late Aron Zola; a tip you can take to the bank.

Never bet on a horse race you don’t know the outcome of ahead of time.

Enjoy the race gang!
