Saturday’s Kentucky Derby caused an extreme swing of emotions for bettors after Maximum Security crossed the finish line first, but was later disqualified, causing Country House to be deemed the official winner as a 65-1 long shot.
Picking the winner in a horse race is hard enough, correctly guessing the top five finishers of the Kentucky Derby would seem nearly impossible. Sports radio icon, Tony Bruno did just that during last Friday’s episode of his daily show on Twitch.
If you listened to Bruno and took his betting advice by playing the five horse superfecta, you’d be $51,400 richer. Although Bruno gave the betting tip live on-air, he never followed through and actually placed the wager himself.
“Prayers up please. I gave the public the winners of the #KentuckyDerby 51,400 Superfecta and didn’t bet on it myself,” Bruno tweeted after Saturday’s Derby.
Don’t believe that Bruno actually predicted the top five of Country House, Code of Honor, Tacitus, Improbable and Game Winner? The popular radio host tweeted the clip from his Friday show which broadcasts daily on Twitch.
