Derby Day 2017

Picture of Irish War Cry






Irish
War
Cry
Watch it TODAY-May 6th
on NBC at 6:15
Eastern time The Derby is a
 mile and a Quarter
Track record was 1973
By--SECRETARIAT
I saw that race,

Sooo here's my picks
Irish war cry #5
is my pick odds 5-1
who knows what the
odds will be at the gate.

no photo available  for thunder, gave me a virus I think.
Thunder Snow bred in Ireland odds 20-1  He can run on mud.
He is owned by a SHEIKH from Dubai,

MC Cracken has a chance too.
 He has a good position at starting gate.

If it's muddy I pick Hence to win, better yet across the board.
    **Hence I love this horse
Image result for Derby Hence horse








Hence looks like my horse Fighting Jimmy, that white blaze
 I watched Jimmy come over the win line a few times
he was a winner, silly by I like this horse.  He's a long shot.
The odds are 15-1 but if it's a muddy track he could win.
He has a great trainer and the ability. Don't know what
position he will have at the gate or if he will be scratched.
IF is a big word...

Image result for image of Patch in derby
PATCH OWNED BY CALUMET FARM
His daddy was a Belmont winner "Union Rags"
Todd Pletcher is trainer. I have been to that farm
it is beautiful.



Hope you get a  few minutes of excitement today.
Happy Mothers Day.

Thanks for your visit, just posted another bright table.
I am a born/bred Vermonter that migrated west to Arizona and now in the middle of nowhere, I mean Kansas.
Hope the horse you chose turns out to be a winner...
have a wonderful weekend.

Well my luck hasn't changed, all my picks failed but it was a great race.
That horse was 3 lengths ahead and I didn't bet him even though he looked great on paper, he had a bad leg awhile back, love a come back and glad to see Todd Pletcher trainer win another Derby, They also had a Jockey that had won the derby in the past. Thanks for the comment, I'll put your Blog on the sidebar. Yvonne

Dearest Yvonne, I've been away from my computer lately, and I think I missed a couple of your posts! Oh, I didn't get a chance to see the races but I hope the best horse wins!
