If you're looking to make some money at the Kentucky Derby, you've come to the right place.

We collectively drop millions of dollars each year at the annual "Run for the Roses," so wouldn't it be nice if we could get some of that back?

I'm here to help make that happen.

Now, nothing is 100 percent guaranteed, but this is about as close as you can come without securing the services of a fortune teller. This year's Kentucky Derby field is stacked, so I'm not putting my money on the long shots, but like I've said before, that doesn't mean you need to drop a stack of cash on the favorites; you have to play it somewhere in the middle.

The three horses I'm leaning toward heavily are Gemologist, at 6-1, Take Charge Indy, at 10-1, and Dullahan, at 8-1. All three are very solid choices with fairly decent odds.
