The VERY underrated Jason Gedrick has a major role too. David Milich/Michael Mann and that all star cast= win

Anyone see the pilot?

For a good two minutes my heart raced and mouth was on the floor.

Yeah they played the pilot on Sunday after Boardwalk. I loved it. Not sure what Nick Nolte's role is yet though, but everyone else was really good.

I may have to re-watch the pilot to get a better feel of the show. I did like it. But I was still in a semi state of shock after watching Boardwalk Empire, so I wasn't really paying close attention to it.

The scene where the horse broke his leg was brutal to watch.

Although I think it would help if I knew a little some thing about horse racing.

Not many stories around about Lucks premier. But all kinda lean towards you may need a little knowledge of the sport at times. It was just the pilot? My father loved this shit. I was at Monmouth race track every summer .

If anything it will teach you about the sport. Just try to remember you may not get it all at once.

That would make sense since everyone on the IMDB page is in 9 episodes.

Good first episode. I've been in that pick six situation a few times. Never with 2 million on the line, more like 2 grand. Chalk always comes in though.

I don't understand horse racing so could you explain to me how it works? How you can bet different number of horses on different races and still win?

They were betting a pick 6, which means they have to pick the winner of 6 races in a row. Their list showed the numbers of the horses they bet in each race. The tickets can get pretty expensive. They only had one horse in one race and the ticket was still 800. They had "all" the horses in the last race, which means they couldn't lose. However, if a favorite would have come in, they would have had to split the pot with others and won only 48 grand. Since a longshot came in, they won the whole pot themselves.

I was able to understand things a lot better with the second viewing. The only thing I can't figure out is what Esclante was doing at the ticket machine.

He put $3,000 on his own horse to win and hit. I doubt that horse would have went off at 12-1 with his money alone on it though. Probably would have been the favorite.

Another thing that bugged me is that the guys didn't cash their ticket right away. They are sitting on 2.6 million, they better be sleeping in Fort Knox that night. I hope some colored gentleman who plays $2 show bets all day kills all four of them and takes their ticket while they sleep.
