137th "Run for the Roses"

Yes it's upon us again the 137 th RUN FOR THE ROSES
NBC will start showing the Derby about 4:30
Post time was 6:20 but may change.

























Toby's Corner was scratched due to injury on left leg.
I feel so bad for the owner.
All that trouble to get so close,
" The Derby" and then disappointment. Well, that's
What makes Horse Racing.


I'm betting Brilliant Speed #2 position

and hope it rains like cats and dogs.
That's my long shot and I think Dialed in
will win. Midnight might be in the money

Hope a Long shot wins like Brilliant Speed,
that would upset the apple cart.
Whoa there Nelly..
what a surprise that would be...


SO Here's The 2011 Entries for the Derby





Kathleen O'Connell with a girl

trainer and a name like that "Watch me Go "
at $50 -1 is a real long shot.
Give me one for the Irish.
I really don't expect her to win.
it would be fun.


There is also another girl Trainer
Kathy ritvo- Mucho Man





Wish I could go to Churchill Downs, how exciting a day it would be.




No Fillies entered this year.



The kentucky Derby is the 3rd Saturday in May.
It is the shortest leg for the triple Crown.
The most exciting 2 minutes in sports.
The race track is a mile and a quarter.


Male horses carry 126 pounds and Female 121 lbs.




Pants on Fire is gorgeous.



They say has enough speed, but not enough stamina.
Phoofy- anything can happen. That's why it's so exciting.




Pants on fire Odds 20-1

Who has the heart to win the Derby this year?. Time will tell.





Watch Brilliant Speed, A real mud runner and
Saturdays track maybe muddy.
Yes I know it's a long shot.
Ka-ching ka-ching $$$
Hip Hip Hurrah !
Let it rain, just makes a crazy race.


Anything goes.. Brilliant Speed Odds 30-1


This horse ARCH ARCH



If Calvin was riding I'd bet. Odds 10-1




Alas!! Calvin Borel is supose to be on TWICE THE APPEAL
. Odds 20-1
Arch Trainer Jinks has the
number one position on the rail.
That position. I think has an advantage.



It's all the Jockey's insight and instints
and the first 200 yards says it all.







Midnight Interlude is position# 15


Espeneza is Jockey and Trainer is Bob Baffert,good trainer. Odds 10-1




Dialed In looks like the favorite,
Odds 4-1 but the odds will
change like crazy before post time.
When I was at the track
I would wait till almost the last min
to see the odds,


I always bet long shots.
Love the underdog to win..



Dialed In is beautiful isn't he.
A florida Stakes winner, from last to first, sounds like a
COME FROM BEHIND
Caveat--- no horse with only 4 starts
has won the Derby since 1918.
The odds on Dialed are 4-1

Remember Anything Goes in the race.
You just don't know what will happen.



Uncle Mo was 9-2 odds, #18 Todd Pletcher Trainer and Jockey Valazquez


Just heard Sat. AM Mo is scratched, has stomach problems.


The horse Nehro is 6-1 odds ???
Who knows who will even get on the track, we will see

Saturday Eastern time about 5:30-6 pm have to check the time tune in early
to see the line up and gorgeous Hats..
WHO DO YOU PICK
