The 135th running of the Kentucky Derby will be taking place Saturday May 2nd and i will be attending my 3rd in a row and wasting most of the money i bring with me. I was just wondering if anybody else from the board will be attending also.

I also wanted to give my predictions and hear who you guys think is going to take the prize this year.
Here is my top 3 and who they are trained by.

1. I Want Revenge is my pick to win it this year and is trained by Jeff Mullins and who has a 19 year old jockey Joe Talamo, i picked this horse before they even named the field for the derby and i'm not going to change my mind.
2. Pioneerof the Nile is my runner up pick and is trained by Bob Baffert and has the jockey Garrett Gomez.
3. Chocolate Candy is 3rd for me and he is trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and his jockey is Mike Smith. If it rains watch out for him to maybe even have a chance at winning.

Now time for everybody else to put in their 2 cents.

I just got to this sh*thole known as Louisville for the Kentucky Derby staying with my girlfriends family. It took me since 8am today to get here and it wasn't fun. Horrible ride and construction the whole way. I think this will be the last year for awhile that i will be attending. Plus it is going to be raining so it will smell even more like sh*t tomorrow. Bad day, bad game, YUCK!.

I see i am the only one that made predictions on the Derby and i will probably be the only one also so step up everybody, i'm calling you all out...

It has become a nice day here but the track is still messy. This is the first year i got to sit up top in doors but it has been a good day here so far. I got to meet Eli Manning earlier and that was pretty neat. Thats my only celebrity sighting so far. I'm hunting Michael Jordan right now but i think he is in the VIP. Eli is just walking around and talking to all the people here. It just goes to show what a nice guy he is.

Today wasn't the best of the 3 i have attended but it was an okay day.
My picks placed 2nd, 5th, and 10th! not a bad day i walked about without losing all my money. I'm taking a profit of $600 home with me this time. Alot better than last year when i lost $1000. :D
