Bonita track packed with Derby watchers as Big Brown wins

The fuss was over horses, not dogs, Saturday evening at the Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track in Bonita Springs. Those would be the 20 horses that were set to run in the 134th Kentucky Derby on the dirt track at Churchill Downs. Ahead of post time, the buzz among the crowd at the track in Bonita Springs was over which horses to favor, which bets to makes and which bettors were full of it. “I’ve been researching all week,” Naples resident Tommy Carmon, 58, said with about 90 minutes to go until the biggest horse race of the year. “It’s come down to three horses I like: Big Brown, Adriano and Colonel John. See, Big Brown’s never been beat, and Colonel John, he’s a good closer. And then Adriano, I know the owner.”
