Saddly I will be working during the race but at least we will have it up on the big screens! This year is the first year I've tried getting into and understanding racing. It never sparked my interest until recently. I'm excited to watch as much as I can!

I watched the Kentucky Derby one time in my life and tragically it was the race that the filly Eight Belles went down. Haven't watched it since lol...I was like 8; it scarred me! I tried to watch it last year for Zenyatta but I was out at the barn & I missed it! :(

I was counting down the Derby once we flipped our calendars to 2013.
Gotta love Derby Day!

These are my picks...In no particular order.

After I went and saw the movie Secretariat, I started to really like horse racing. I love the sport, thoroughbreds, and the competition. I don't care for some of the aspects of the industry, but still love racing! I would love to operate a rescue program where I re-train and then sell OTTBs.

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

I am gonna try to watch it this year.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

I've heard a lot of people like Revolutionary on a sloppy track.
