So what’s your guess for the Derby tomorrow? I’m not a gambler by nature, and I know nothing about horse racing (kinda why I took this job — more glamour, less whipping) so I usually go by either what name I like the best, the biggest underdog (horse) or what jockey has the coolest name/silks. Here’s my thoughts:
Who doesn’t love Steve Martin? So Imawildandcrazyguy gets my vote. Even if he’s going off at 50-1.
I like the silks that Stewart Elliot will be rockin’ while he’s on Teuflesburg (also a great name) and at 30-1 he’ll probably be a couple lengths ahead of Imawildandcrazyguy.
Finally, the cool quirky names are usually the ones that get my attention. But you just can’t deny a simple name like Sam P. and he’s got the best odds from the group i picked at 20-1.
It seems that most of the experts have Street Sense taking it, but where’s the fun on taking a sure thing? I just hope the boys in the back take it easy with the crop. I mean, you’re not going to win. Let’s try to be nice the horses, OK?
