2015 Derby Day- May 2,

Carpe Diem -  Carpe Diem-Carpe Diem   I hope he is this years winner
of the 2015 Kentucky Derby.


It's the most exciting 2 minutes you will have in any sport.
Has that white blaze like my old horse. It's easy to spot coming
in on the last turn. I can relive that day my horse won in Florida.

                     Jess's Dream - also from Curlin
Sure there will be a lot of scratches so we won't know who gets in till
the day of the Derby.
My favorite Jockey's
Victor ESPENOZA **
Joel ROSARIO
Mike SMITH
Gary STEVENS
Some people bet by lineage, or Jockey, past preformance, Mud runners,
weight, Trainer, Owner with most anount of wins, it's crazy,
but ---- OH! What Fun.
That Trophy 2weighs 56 ounces of 14 Karet gold.



Bob Baffert

Carpe Diem




He is a horse to watch








For the Longines Kentucky Oaks
I pick
Condo Commander 1st- then Bird on a wire


Interesting Facts:::::
Regret is the only Fillie I know that won the Derby.
If you are 16 years old you can be a jockey in the Derby.
1970 Diane Crump was 1st woman to ride in the Derby
Willie Shoemaker was the oldest to ride in 1986 he was age 54.
Past winners of Kentucky Derby, I remember each race.
When the horses are led to the starting gate, everyone
sings My Old Kentucky Home. That started in 1928.

California Chrome 2013
Orb 2012
I'll Have Another 2011
