Once guests get settled in, they will have the opportunity to gain some expert advice on which three-year-old thoroughbred to cheer on, as special guest handicappers Jim Mazur and Mike Mutnansky will be available to consult. Mazur is the President of Progressive Handicapping, Inc. and also the author of The Triple Crown Undercard Handicapper 2007.  On top of being an excellent handicapper, Mike Mutnanksy can be heard weekly on Boston, Massachusetts’ WEEI Sports Radio alongside his co-host Lou Merloni on the all-new mid-day show, Mut & Merloni. 
After grabbing some key advice, all that’s left to do is make your picks.  Guests who make a $25.00 wager will receive a commemorative Race Book Derby souvenir.  Advance wagering will also be available on Thursday, May 5th and Friday, May 6th.  Guests will also receive a Kentucky Derby souvenir gift with any $25.00 advanced wager on the Kentucky Derby, while supplies last.
