My Derby hat goes off to the trainers and owners of I Want Revenge! The horse had a hot spot on it's ankle, that probably would not have affected his run today as the top pick in The Kentucky Derby, but decided to go ahead and scratch him just in case. This horse could have brought them a nice "purse" today, but instead they put the welfare of the animal first! Awesome, dontcha think?
My pick Friesan Fire has moved up to the favorite.........In loving memory of Eight Belles, Larry Jones, is very determined today!
