Funny how folks from different areas got the complete opposite info. on them grey horses.
II was always told not to bet on the Gray... I never cared for one as a saddle horse either, unlike some of the guys I worked with they prided them as some exotic color.
Have ridden quite a few grey saddle horses in my time & have to agree they did have a funny personality about them. I'd never owned one myself. Guess some folks just favored the color most of all.
It's always fun to watch the Derby race, and the colorful hats on the ladies.
I tried posting an earlier reply before going out but it might have been lost or something....

Yep the Hats    The Royal Wedding goers had nothing on the Kentucky derby goers.   Virginia has their Hat day also on the 1st Sat in May, the Gold Cup Races are held at the The Great Meadow about 20 minutes NW of here in the The Plains Va.   Fancy hat's the Fancy cars  Fancy Pinics using the best Virginia Wines.  It feilds horses and trainers from all over the world as does the Derby.

3 Uncle Mo
by Indian Charlie 8-1 7-2 108 Repole Stable
T. Pletcher/J. Velazquez Wood Memorial, 4/9
3rd by 1 1/4, 92 Kentucky Derby
Churchill Downs, 5/7
  JP: Encouraging work on Tuesday puts him squarely in Derby picture; mulligan for Wood?
MW: Even if he returns to form, the Derby distance has always been a question for him.


Has an intestinal infection, which moved everyone up a notch or 2  The odds have change drastically on "Pants on Fire" around 9 to 1 however the Kentucy Oaks was just run and the Jockey for Pants  on Fire, Rosie Napravnik run out of dirt, ended up taking a strong second. Her mount came from the rear and just there by a hair at the end. I imagine the bookmakers will adjust accordingly now.



I am going to box my bet going with Twice the Appeal-Mucho Macho Man-Stay Thirsty

Youu still got some time to tune your bugle. There was 13 races today.

I seen Chef Bobby Flay on there today, he predicts "Soldat' will win the the Triple Crown....I'd bet a worn out martingale he does not bet his TV channel on it.


The CasCity chef have any predictions?

The one I did pick was the only one that I thought had a chance.  The other 2 were sciienticial picked, Liked the name silk colors the Jockey, throw em all in a hat and draw them.     Just as hard to pick the top 3 at Darlington too.


I have to admit I didn't think Animal Kingdom would be wearing the roses
