It’s Kentucky Derby Day. And it’s time for me to make a pick for today’s race.
After conducting a thorough analysis of the horses, their bloodlines, the owners, the trainers, the jockeys, the odds and the expected weather at Churchill Downs today, I came up with exactly nothing.
But how can I not pick a horse named I’ll Have Another? Because I almost always will.
None of the names jumped out to me either – I liked the article in the NYT – Trinninberg may just create enough problems for Bodemeister – leaving a late surge for potentially Daddy Nose Best and Well Went the Day – all horses have stories – but I love the attitude of the owner / jockey on Trinninberg – purchased the horse for $21k – going to go out and put it on the line and see what happens – it’s like if Uncle Crappy ran a 1/2 marathon and won his age group in record time – can he go the distance – we’ll see – but I hear Trinninberg has to tape his nipples or they get sore near the end of the race – so I’m rootin for him – and if I’m rooting for him, I’m picking him to find Jesus (which I think for a horse is Mr. Ed) and run the race of his life –
Trinninberg as the long shot shocker!
UC is the Horse whisperer
I will totally be looking for your pick in The Preakness. The Horse Whisperer indeed…
