Sports Betting Podcast: Kentucky Derby Announcer Larry Collmus

May 20, 2022 | Krackwins On Demand, Golf, Golf Picks, MLB, Sports Betting Tips, Sports Picks Podcast, Wise Kracks Podcast

We’re just a week away from Memorial Day, the official start of summer. With that, there’s a ton going on. The second leg of the Triple Crown, golf’s second major, and baseball is in full swing to name a few things! Need to stay caught up? It’s time for another episode of Wise Kracks.

On this week’s show, my cohost, Jon Orlando and I are joined by Larry Collmus, a legendary race caller and the lead race caller for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Triple Crown and the Breeder’s Cup. You may have heard of him recently, as he was the one who called Rich Strike’s win at the Derby recently.

Tiger’s back! He’ll be hitting the links at the PGA Championship to compete. Do you know who won’t be there? Phil Mickelson. There’s a lot of drama regarding Phil and we break it all down.

I’m sure inflation has been on the forefront of everybody’s mind. Does it influence Las Vegas at all? We both agree that there’s a bit of immunity in Sin City.

Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods & The PGA Championship

Tiger Woods will be on the field for his second event of the season as he attempts to take down the PGA Championship. The last time Woods golfed, he finished T-47 at the Masters. He started strong but a 78 during Saturday and Sunday’s play sank him.

While Tiger has been progressing upwards, the same can’t be said for Phil Mickelson. I told Jon, “I’m not really a Phil fan. If you knew more about Phil like Tiger… There are a couple stories there.”

Phil is currently facing backlash for his comments about the PGA tour among other things. Check out the episode to hear more!

And They’re Off!

Larry Collmus joined the show to discuss everything horse racing and he had stories that are surely going to blow your mind, including calling his first race at the age of 18!

Larry recently called the Kentucky Derby and had an incredible call that we noticed. “Chills again,” said Jon. I added, “That was awesome. It’s amazing seeing that and hearing that [The Kentucky Derby call].”

However, Larry is critical of his calls and always sees room for improvement.

“As a race caller, you’re always like ‘you can do better, wish I picked up a horse earlier,’ you do your best and try your best to see as much as possible.”

With Rich Strike’s big victory still on many people’s minds, Larry saw it from a great vantage point and said, “A lot of times when horses are making their moves, they’re on the outside.”

Then all of a sudden Rich Strike just shot of a cannon on the inside. Make sure you check out the whole interview to see what life is like as a race caller.

It’s easy to lose yourself in this business. The calendar keeps flipping and the grind never takes a day off. There is always another game, another line to analyze. Once the confetti hits the ground celebrating a champion in one sport, another sport is set to begin. This week marks the last real regular season games before conference championship games and then, one of my sweet spots for making money, the bowl season.
