Updated: Thursday, May 8 2014, 02:25 PM EDT
A local handicapper has the inside track on what it takes to beat the odds in horseracing.
Dan Collins has a unique collection of horseracing memorabilia inside his North Baltimore home. He says he's been studying the patterns of horses since childhood.
"It's not just being able to pick horses in the money, it is knowing how to bet," says Collins.
The 140th Kentucky Derby takes place at Churchill Downs on Saturday, May 3rd.
The Kentucky Derby starts the horseracing Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing, which includes Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. The 139th Preakness Stakes takes place on Saturday, May 17th at Pimlico Race Course.
