the run for the roses

Is anybody else as excited about the Kentucky Derby as I am???
My favorite to win was Eskendereya but he was scratched on Sunday.

So I am now trying to decide who I want to root for.

I really like Lookin At Lucky
but that is mainly because Garret Gomez is one of my favorite Jockeys.

I also like Sidney's Candy ridden by Joe Talamo.
I was really excited last year when Joe was going to ride I Want Revenge but the horse was scratched on the day of the race. So I want him to do well!

I also like Devil May Care mainly because she is the only filly in the race.
Us girls have to stick together!!

I would be horrible at actually betting on the horses.
My requirements for choosing a favorite are quite random and do not necessarily have anything to do with the ability of the horse!

Do you have any favorites to win the Derby?


  1. I am so excited about the race! I get so nervous during it though! My favorite is Stately Victor, and then Lookin at Lucky. I don't pick based on the ability of the horse either, I pick purely on the stories behind them haha! It's almost gets me so stressed out! And the track is in such terrible condition, so it should be an interesting race!

  2. I don't actually get into horse's not so big where I'm from. But I think the tradition is pretty cool. The sport of kings!

  3. Devil May Care was my fave, just because she's a filly ~ I didn't really expect her to win! I usually make a big event out of watching the Derby but we were moving my horse to a new barn this afternoon and missed it. Blah. Thank goodness for the internet so I can watch the replays :D

  4. I hope you picked a winner. I just like it for the hats. Is that wrong? Ah ha ha!
