135th Kentucky Derby

Saturday, May 02, 2009 Posted In , , , Edit This 2 Comments »

As a horse lover and owner of three Thoroughbred racehorses, it is no doubt that I hold a certain fondness for the Kentucky Derby. I am currently displeased with the Thoroughbred racing industry. However, I still cannot give up my adoration for the Derby.

Since I am still on vacation, we decided to make the most of it and return to a wonderful pub in Norwalk to enjoy an early dinner while watching the Derby. There was even a pool going, but I decided not to participate since my favorite, I Want Revenge, scratched early this morning. I had my hopes on Hold Me Back but it wasn't in the cards. Instead, a lovely longshot took the Kentucky Derby by storm.

Congratulations to Mine That Bird and Jockey Calvin Borel on an amazing race!
