Attachment 30599My older daughter went to Kentucky. She could give a hoot about horses but took some pictures for me of horses training at Churchill Downs. She said it was rainy the entire time she was there and that the "favorite" was injured and scratched from the race.

Bluh, the track is absolutely soaked. :P ESPN is following it today, and the two races I've seen so far are awful, mud splashing everywhere. I'm surprised no one's fallen yet.

yayayayayaya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DERBY BDERBY DERBY DERBY DERBY DERBY!!!! My favorite day of the year. I am having a bigger party this year and am soooo excited. Just about to put the names of the horses on our cupcakes.

I still like Dublin- hoping he can win the Derby unlike his father, Afleet Alex. My daughter likes American Lion..... and we both like Devil May Care because its a filly and looks like our boy Citrus.

I haven't seen enough preliminary stuff to have a favorite yet, but I'm just praying nobody wipes out in that mud.

Sidneys Candy is #1
Lookin at Lucky is the favorite but I don't know much if hes going to win.

I've decided to root for Sidney's Candy because of the jockey Joe Talamo. He's got a tough post position (20), but I really like that confident young man. :)
