Kentucky Derby

first_imgFor those of you who only get excited about one horse race a year, your time is quickly approaching.  The start of the summer racing program always kicks off with the Kentucky Derby.  This race is not only a great show for the young crop of racing horses, but it is also a major social event for not only the horse owners and their contingents but for all the “want-to-be’s” who just like to say they were there.  There will be more hats on display on this first Saturday of May than will probably be worn for all other social events combined for the year.For those of you who are interested, here are the top five horses one month out from the race itself.  These five horses are supposed to have the best chance of landing one of the coveted spots in the Kentucky Derby field.  They are Cairo Prince, Candy Boy, General A-Rod, California Chrome, and Samraat.  All of these horses are now earning points in the preliminary races so they are eligible to run in the Derby.  Barring injury, look for the above 5 horses plus 10-15 more making up the field.Good Luck to all of you serious bettors and us $2 wagerers.last_img
