Oh, I love Derby day. My friends and I get together and go all out, hats and all! Catered food, lots of drinks, lots of memories. We all vote on who is best dressed and the winner gets a gift certificate.

There's someone from my barn going, and also attending the "after party", so I think even though I'm not in the racing loop, I'll hear lots about it. Her husband is a doctor so this is an anniversary trip, I think, even though he's not into horses himself.

I think I'm going to have my mother bet on Lines of Battle for me.

Gotta love Hawaii and their "no gambling" crap, combined with being in the field and no internet service

Saturday is my birthday and my mom, a friend of hers and I are going down to Arlington to watch the races there and the simulacast (sp?) of the derby. I'm excited, it's my first time to the races and I'd like to see what it was like for my boy when he raced.

I was just a little disappointed that people don't really dress up for the occasion in IL so no fun hats for me. Lol

I have no clue who I'm going to bet on. I'll just have to go with my gut I guess. Very excited though!

I worked at Churchill for three Derby's and since then I usually still make it for Derby week events. This is the first year that I didn't go. Not liking that, so will be there next year for at least some of the pre-Derby things.

I actually like watching the race better on TV since I am no longer in racing.

DH and I are going to have drinks and snacks around our tv! I can't wait!

I don't really follow racing enough to know who to pick. So I'm going for:

Fear the Kitten
Charming Kitten

I understand the sire, Kitten's Joy, was better on turf than a dirt track...but I still like the names and the fact they are underdogs. :lol"

I think Revolutionary is going to pull it out.

The Winner of The Sunland Park, New Mexico race (I forget the name) usually races in the Derby. This years winner pulled out because of injury
