Kentucky Derby 2011 Exacta: Animal Kingdom, Nehro Pay $327

With such great odds for the 2011 Kentucky Derby, those who picked a $2 16-19 exacta were handsomely rewarded on Saturday with a $327 dollar payout.

If you recall, I picked Animal Kingdom in my exacta box, but unfortunately did not have the foresight to select Nehro as one of his companions. My horses finished first, seventh, ninth and tenth.

Those who were lucky enough to select 16-19-13 (Mucho Macho Man showed) as the $2 trifecta earned a very hefty $3,950 for their efforts. With such a huge pool of money spread out so thin across the field, the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs was a perfect storm for horse gambling enthusiasts.

That's most of the fun when you're watching horse racing -- the chance to take home a huge purse for relatively little risk. Animal Kingdom now takes the reins as the top candidate to win the Preakness on May 21.
