Tuley's Takes on seeing the future


It was a thrilling week in the Tuley’s Takes home office with the NFL Draft and Kentucky Derby added to the regular sporting menu of MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, UFC and golf.

I have an affinity for horse racing, so it’s always bittersweet this time of year after all the time and effort put into the Kentucky Derby, the biggest race of the year, and it’s gone in just over two minutes, especially when we don’t cash a ticket.

But I think it’s important after every big event like this — or any sports season for that matter — to reflect on what we did right and what we did wrong.

I don’t regret my main long-shot play on No. 12 Helium. With Nevada not having a pari-mutuel contract with Churchill Downs, the books had to book the race themselves, and I got Helium at 80-1 at Circa compared with 38-1 at the track, so I can’t complain about that. And Helium gave me my money’s worth as he was racing in fourth place through the first six furlongs, but just didn’t have enough to run down Medina Spirit and finished eighth.
