I spend all day waiting for the greatest two minutes.

With I Want Revenge scratched, the Kentucky Derby is down to nineteen runners. Who do you like, guys?

I REALLY liked I Want Revenge (to be honest, I liked a lot of the boys that have been taken of the trail), so with him out I'm leaning towards Friesan Fire. I'd like him to win it for Larry Jones. Baring that, I like Dunkirk (who could be a TC contender), Chocolate Candy, and Hold Me Back (though that ENTIRELY sentimental, because my guy Desormeaux has the mount.)

Who do you like Mara?

Who do you like Mara?Not that I know what I'm talking about this year at all, but I like Dunkirk, General Quarters, and Mr. Hot Stuff. Yes, I can like three! (And maybe I like Mr. Hot Stuff because he is so ridiculously pretty I have to cheer him on based on prettiness alone.)

Mine That Bird? Who the F is Mine That Bird? And did ANYONE bet on him? Seriously. He ran a great race, don't get me wrong, and deserved the win, but DANG! Wish I had two bucks on him.

General Quarters got mud up his nose and finished in the middle of the pack. I love that sharp gray horse...still! I want to follow him at Arlington! This twin of KELSO comes out of nowhere and looks like he could be Joininthedance in the mud, and Calvin Borel repeats his Street Sense performance!!!! Oh, and Friesian...Frie...the Fire colt pulls of a chunk of front hoof and bleeds of the track :( but he'll be fixed up and back for the summer meet, I hope!
