Derby's almost here!

As we all know, the Kentucky Derby is only a few months away.

Who is your favorite to win?
What's been the most impressive prep race so far?

I haven't been following, but I'm gettin' good vibes from Hansen. I do fancy a gray, and he's a real looker.

I havent been following this year too much either, have heard about Hansen though, honestly, hes one of the only Ive heard of, I always seem to get back into it, and "catch up" closer to the Derby!

I haven't looked into it that much yet, but I'm liking the looks of Union Rags
I like Hansen too though, I think I'll need to watch their prep races before I decide who my favorite is.

Union Rags. Michael Matz is the man! UR looks awesome and moves beautifully...now all he needs is a clean trip in the Derby. A few Hard Spun babies are lurking in there as well. Can't wait to see how the rest of the preps set up.

I'd have UR and Hansen go 1 and 2.
Just depends on how the look towards the end of April for me.
I do like how Michael Matz trains his horses though.

Watching it on TV! I actually get to watch a live horse race this summer..we have a huge race track where I live and I still haven't watched one yet.

I know nothing about horse racing, so just like every other bet I've done..the one with the prettiest (or cutest) horse should win IMO lol I do this with everything ;)
