The handicapping is complete (mostly). The TwinSpires account is funded (for now). The beer is cold. The bourbon is ready. It's Kentucky Derby Day!

Churchill Downs will feature a 13-race card today, highlighted by the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby (Race 11, post time 6:24 Eastern / 3:24 Pacific, TV: Undercard on Versus and Derby on NBC). The first race will go to post at 10:30am Eastern and the final race of the day will go off at 7:50. And, yes, I might be playing races #12 and #13. You gotta get even at some point!

Good look to everyone today with your wagers, and may we have a safe Derby Day for all the horses, jockeys and track personnel.

The chart below will track all of the day's winners and pari-mutuel payouts. All post times are listed as Eastern. Clink on the link of the winner's name to be taken to the result chart via DRF.com.

Note: The chart below looks better if you are viewing on the "wide" setting (top right corner menu). I try to set up all the charts so they look fine on Narrow or Wide, but couldn't make it happen for this one.
