  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Even without the benefit of mint juleps, you will learn about the history of thoroughbred racing and, specifically, the Kentucky Derby. Charting the process of handicapping thoroughbred horse races and the types of bets that handicappers make will all but transform you into a high roller.

The session will conclude with race videos and a hands-on examination of the Daily Racing Form, giving you a jump on preparing for this year’s running of the Kentucky Derby.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
