A Kentucky Derby Preview For You, With Hot Chicks In Hats So You'll Actually Read It.

All right everyone. I'm not sure how much you all like horse racing, but frankly, I don't care, especially since I'm the one writing the articles here.

Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby, which you should all watch. Why? Because even though horse racing is currently wedged somewhere in between alligator wrestling and jai alai in the American sports consciousness, when the Derby rolls around, it's always a must watch.

And to get you prepped for it here are the odds for Saturday's race. The favorite is I Want Revenge, which is one of the cooler racehorse names I've heard in a while I have no idea anymore. Here are the odds for the race, which obviously could still change. By the way, I totally condone betting, because how else are we going to get out of this recession? Helping sports books helps America, people. After the odds, I've also thrown in some pictures of the lovely ladies of the Derby, just to make this post a tad more worthwhile.

Oh, and do enjoy the race. We'll have our famous Kentucky Derby two-minute live thread tomorrow afternoon. That's quickly becoming as famous as the Derby itself. Well, not really. But it's fun anyway.

 Friesian Fire.  Not sure Dunkirk will handle a sloppy track.  It's likely the track will be sloppy judging from the weather reports around here.

Really? Sloppy track. That should make for an interesting race, you'd think that will limit the speed horses.

I like Dunkirk over Quality Road and I Want Revenge. I think we're going to have a derby where the favorite is not the winner, which is the norm. Not like last year.

For what it's worth, March Madness is my favorite event of the year but the Derby is a close second. I'm so happy that the Derby is here and then afterward we get Hatton/Pac Man in what should be a hell of a fight!

I also like General Quarters and Papa Clem.  Good jockeys.

I can't wait for Keeneland tomorrow to probably lose, but hopefully win some money!!  I'm for Hold Me Back and Dunkirk, but considering no one has ever won out of the 15th post, Dunkirk probabyl wont win.
