I like the part that involves sitting on the veranda sipping mint juleps in funny looking hats! Actually, we have a track pretty close to our house, maybe worth a trip over to place a wager!

I kinda like Col John at 4-1 right now.

Pyro 6-1 and Big Brown is at 3-1

For a fun bet.... at 50-1 Big Truck!

1982 Derby winner Gato Del Sol was a 21-1 shot who failed miserably as a stud:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKnEXVhxiyY

We bought one of his offspring as a 6 year old to save him going to the “canners”: “Big George” has sold for $50,000 at Keenland as a weanling, $25,000 as a 2 year old, then $10,000, $5000 and to us for $1200, after only 2 wins in 12 starts

A year of cooling him down (6-8 gallons of oats a day for a horse at the track) and feeding him at the top of the hill with his water at the bottom, and I had the smoothest riding horse I’ve ever owned. I rode him for 4 years.

For anyone with the time and patience to rescue a thoroughbred, it can be the most wonderful experience……..

As for the race? Is Otter putting up a saucer?

I like those cute outfits the jockeys wear and the catchy names owners give to their horses - those two factors are the basis for all my bets! smile

(won some decent money in '05 on "Closing Argument" at 30/1 odds)

Watching the Kentucky Derby and one of the owners of Gayego probably said it best, (they are from Cuba) God and Freedom made it all possible for the reason that they are there.
