Kentucky Derby 2011: Wager From SB Nation Editor

Well, I've made my wager down at the local OTB site, Sandstone Cafe in Chandler. With the odds fluctuating a great deal during the run-up to the 2011 Kentucky Derby, it was very difficult to find a crop of horses that I was willing to put some money down for.

In the end, I liked what I saw from Brilliant Speed, Twice The Appeal, Pants On Fire, and Animal Kingdom. All of these horses have something in common: a favorable payout if they were to win. I decided to throw down a $3 exacta box on these four horses, hoping to catch lightning in a bottle in what has been a very unpredictable betting process for this year's Derby.

With the race less than an hour away, we're going to see a big spike in the wagering pool, which has already reached an incredible $13 million for the exacta bets alone. You have to love the Kentucky Derby!
