The Run for the Roses....

This Saturday is the Kentucky Derby.....if I were going, which I'm not, I would be in my element, in the company of such fine jockeys, trainers and above all beautiful and magnificent horses which will be competing to win the Run for the Roses, in Louisville, Kentucky.

I would really love for Bodemeister to win, with Mike Smith as the jockey...of Breeder's Cup fame aboard the famous filly, Zenyatta....

There is, in my opinion, a dark horse (no pun intended),  who everyone is discounting, Went the Day Well...a beauty, ridden by John Velazquez...another of my picks. However, it is a horse race, and anyone can win!!

The above artwork is by Tom Myott, one of my favourite artists. It is entitled Saratoga Hats..
be sure to visit his website to see his other paintings and get into the spirit of the Derby!!

Something you didn't know about me.....did you?
