Will the winning dog weigh more than 18 pounds?” he said. “I felt that this would be a great event to bet on. It lasts two days and has six hours of prime time live coverage on the USA Network.

The Westminster Kennel Club is America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of purebred dogs. Established in 1877, Westminster's influence has been felt for more than a century through its famous all breed, benched dog show held every year at New York's Madison Square Garden. The show is America's second longest continuously held sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby.
