  • Added:  3 years ago
  • Description: TVG announcer Ken Rudulph wins big Kentucky Derby bet, made legally through (go there for details on how to bet from home). Ken's reaction during and after the race was shown on-air on TVG. Yelling, cussing, excited, cheering and especially insane reaction in winning the big bet are all shown. Rudulph later said the winnings helped him buy his house. Giacomo was the second longest priced winner of the Kentucky Derby paying over $100 for a $2 win bet. Watch TVG on DirecTV 602 or Dish 399. for info.

    This guy was actually pretty reserved considering how much he touted the horse and wound up betting him at that price......nothing like the guy standing next to me at the TV set at the track who is screaming at the top of his lungs while everyone is trying to just watch the race, and after he wins, yells how everyone HAD TO bet the horse, who goes off 3-1 and you find out he had $2 to win on him. Biggest single score I ever made I didn't know how much, and I had to win silently while driving the New Jersey turnpike home from a Derby party I had left early from...was in traffic and had Animal Kingdom and the horse who came 2nd...can't remember the name...but bet about $300, and keyed those 2 on top of a few, boxed them several times...had no idea what I had because I had bet at OTB and Freehold...before going to the party....I was trying to look through the tickets. Only had the trifecta for a buck, but the exacta quite a bit....collected just over $14,000......and the funny thing, I had bet every derby since Secretariat, and NEVER cashed a ticket......but that one race made it so it is the only race I can say without doubt I am up money on!! I'll say it again, this guy was very reserved compared to most. Nobody ever hears a peep out of me when I watch a race, win or lose....although I will show my losing tickets if it was close.....but like a friend said, "Just tear them up and move on.....we all have close losers, and nobody really wants to see how close you were, or really cares". lol

    Thanks for the Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you tried - Chiveard Betting Information Framework (probably on Google)? It is a great exclusive product for getting an automated horse racing betting system without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my close friend Aubrey got amazing success with it.

    Why is Ken no longer there? Was he fired, found a better gig or TVG got offended if he wanted a raise and showed him the door? I only found out he worked there after seeing him on one or two of the TVG classics show replays. When I started watching TVG he was gone. I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't embraced or liked by most of his co-workers. His ethnicity likely being a factor.

    The fastest horse wins the Preakness, the best horse wins the Belmont, and the luckiest wins the Derby. Afleet Alex was the best h orse in this year of terrific horses, and was almost knocked off his feet in the Preakness, but still won, and put on an unbelievable run in the Belmont to win, and as seen here could have won if the race was longe

    Alex should have won the Triple Crown, except for this freak Derby. Well, the luckiest horse was Giacomo.

A $9500 pay day to a $95 pay day

    Anyone who interested in racing will find useful information from this. You just need someone who is an expert in the field and who is on your side. The key is to always be observant and realize that any successful system you set up is always going to have to be tweaked in the future. The game is always changing and you have to stay on top of it.

    • taxisteve929
      taxisteve929 13 days ago

      Casinos destroyed horse and harness racing in the US. I saw it was going to happen in New Jersey when they came, and it did. They knocked the gamblers out and then the tracks turned into crap games themselves with simulcasting, which is why TVG exists, and is helping to continue the sport, but to really enjoy racing, I will go to Monmouth Park, stay outside, take time and relax, handicap, and NOT bet other tracks. They still get crowds, but nothing like it was. The apron fills, but not the grandstand. I remember the Meadlowlands drawing more on a Monday night than they do now on Hambletonian day. Sad.......the tracks all had either trams or buses bringing people in from the back parking lots......Belmont used to have to bus people in from lots a mile away!!! I was at the Belmont for Secretariat, and it was probably the most exciting day of my life. Anyone who remembers those days watches the old videos and their hearts hurt....part of it is the glory days, and part just our youth, as all the jockeys and drivers we bet are now retiring or retired, we wonder "Where did the time go" you age, you just don't feel older, so it's a real punch in the face when you see a driver you watched for so many years, and he is old and gray. Then you look in the mirror and wonder "Why the hell am I still so damn good looking and young!!" LOL.....okay...not really.

    Didn't Ken quit to be a newscaster up in No Cal???  It seems to me I watched his last day on TVG and it was really emotional.  And, then when I was up in No Cal I saw him doing news.  I'm happy he won big and I would have been doing much more than what he did.  You should see me screaming for horses that are in maiden special races for 2 year olds!!!  Also, does anyone know about Chris Harrison from The Bachelor, he was on TVG for a time.  Does he own horses or anything, you have to own or know someone or something like Cristina Blacker who had a jockey for a dad.  Why are a lot of TVG people now on HRTV??  I personally like HRTV more as they seem more about the horses then betting.  But TVG is okay too.  Congrats Ken and hope you are doing well.

    In response to Vambo13257: I think you would agree that picking a winning horse that pays $50.30 for each $1 wagered certainly IS a big deal, no matter how much was wagered.  Second, you can't deny that his reaction was relatively subdued compared to many who hit horses paying much less.  Finally, and most important, At 4:25 in the clip, he said, "I got a future wager at 50 to 1, I got ANOTHER $25 to win."  Since he doesn't disclose how much his future wager was, we will never know exactly how much he won, but it was clearly more than the $1,257.50 he took down with his $25 winning ticket and I think most who know anything about horse racing would agree that this guy made an amazing call, put his money where his mouth was, TWICE (his future wager and the $25 win ticket), and was rewarded handsomely for it.
