Run for the Roses

May 03, 2014

It's Derby Day y'all! As a Kentuckian, it's in your blood to be excited. Having an annual Derby race at school where everyone brings their best homemade version of a stick horse, mine, made of real wood, looked awesome, not the best for racing, but hey, looks matter when it comes to The Derby, right? 

But on to more important matters, choosing this years winner! I'm the girl who picks based on name with a hint of odds. This years lineup is looking pretty good! 19 horses in the running, unfortunately it looks like a couple of horses have scratched! This year, I think I'm going to go with Dance With Fate for my number one pick and Wildcat Red for my second! Great names, great colors, and odds somewhere in the middle seem pretty good to me! Although it looks like Danza, California Chrome, and Samraat might have a pretty good chance, good odds and on the inner lanes, but we'll see!
