Seven Win Derby Bet

Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro completely waxed his competition at Churchill Downs in Louisville May 6th, and that means cold hard cash for the concert industry.

Freedom Hall held its 22nd Annual Derby Bet, with seven winners picking the colt on a $2 bet, netting $14.20.

First off, there’s Nat Burgess, who was listed in the announcement as an agent with APA when in fact his current job is woodworking and recording guitar solos for wolves in his Montana retirement home.

Then there’s AEG Live’s Donna DiBenedetto, Beaver Productions‘ Barry Leff, Nederlander‘s Steve Liberatore (who won last year, too), the Farm Aid staff (w/Carolyn Mugar), Magic Arts & Entertainment‘s Mary Ann Porcaro and Venues Today‘s Linda Deckard.
