Kentucky Derby 2009

While I won't be sitting in the stands in my fabulous hat, dress, and heels watching the horse race....I will be watching it from between studying for my exams (and probably wearing a sweatshirt and shorts). However, I just thought I'd take the time to remind you to pick your horses! My mom always used to cut out the names of the horses from the newspaper and put them in a hat the first Saturday of every May. We'd draw names out of the hat and we'd each end up with 5 or 6 horse that gave us a pretty good chance of winning. I've never bet money on it, but it's always fun to pick the right horse. So for my pick for the 135th Kentucky Derby:

#10 Regal Ransom **Update: 22-1

If you don't know how the betting works at the Derby, read this info page.
And by the way, the Kentucky Derby will be aired on NBC starting at 5:00pm ET. BE THERE! (Oh, and let me know what horses y'all pick :)

By the way, Ben's pick is #12 General Quarters **Update: 9-1

Here is the link for the list of this year's horses.

One last thing: it took me forEVER to find this...but if you want to watch it online streaming, here is the link.

I'll be doing the same thing...watching it from home. It's pouring the rain, so I'm hoping it lets up some by then!

I choose Pioneerof The Nile. Bob Baffert is the way to go.

I've been watching it since around noon. General Quarters has a pretty nice build-- I wish the website had better pictures of each horse's body so I could make my final decision! lol
