Kentucky Derby picks…


I’ve been away for a couple of days and haven’t had a chance to write about the Kentucky Derby.

So, an hour before the race, I needed to vent as a I sit here watching a flawless looking day at Churchill Downs. I’ve been to 7 Kentucky Derbies and it’s by FAR my favorite sports event to attend.

If you’ve never been, you should go. It’s accessible, fun and fits almost any travel budget (you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get in…).

The television coverage (as usual) has been sensational.

I’m insanely jealous right now because I wish I were there today. Did I mention how much I love the Kentucky Derby?

Here are my usual bad picks:

Exacta box: Adriano & Z Fortune.

I’d also box and a trifecta of Adriano, Z Fortune, Eight Belles and Big Brown.

I think it’ll be VERY hard for Big Brown to win outta the 20 hole. It hasn’t been done in 75 years.
