Derby 139

It's the first Saturday in May, y'all, and that means it's Derby Day! It's been raining steadily all morning, and there are various reports that it may let up soon. After a quick look at this morning's Racing Form, I think my pick for this year's winner is Revolutionary. Orb has been the favorite, but the line this morning shows that Verrazano and Goldencents have pretty good odds, too. The reason I like Revolutionary is that he's actually run on an off track, he's trained by Todd Pletcher and Calvin Borel is riding him today. Anyway, I've put it out there, so I'm sure that means he'll come in second and break my heart.

Here's a video I found of the crowd singing "My Old Kentucky Home" from Derby 137 (skip ahead to about 1:48 or so). Happy Derby!
