Kentucky Derby

Make yer pick & get it here before post time. I'm going with Scat Daddy - though if the Queen is a late entry she might be a contender...


Here's the field.

Winners get bragging rights.

Good luck!

Re: Kentucky Derby

30 years ago, I spent a summer at the track as a bookie for a guy working on the Alaskan Pipeline. I can give you a tip. Don't play the horses.

Worked for two years at the track and on a farm, learned to never ever bet on horses.

Re: Kentucky Derby

I'm impressed that a horse that's blind in one eye was entered. Didn't place well but to run well enough to be even considered for the Kentucky Derby is pretty cool.
