Do they call that one eyed horse Patch because he wears an eyepatch?

If that's the case I'll put my money on Fast & Accurate.

The Santa Anita Derby winner Gormley is a little longer odds that I would've thought.

I only bet horse racing on the very rare occasion I go to the track for the fun of it, and I don't really know anything about handicapping horseracing.

So I always root for the Santa Anita Derby winner Gormley.

My sister and mother in law bet the one eyed horse. I watched the race and the horse that won ran a great race. When you have no mud on from a muddy track your doing something right .. now back t watching something else as I get ready to watch fight tonight .

I always fun bet my mom, $10 tonight, on her horse vs mine. I took Fast and Accurate and after starting quick dropped like a stone. Those horses were beautiful..

attended the derby for the first time this year, bucket list item.

Took Always Dreaming across the board, also took Hence and Gunnevera which of course didn't pay. Hit a few exactas early on to make the day a positive and pay for a few of the $14 mint Juleps, AKA a big glass of ice with a little bourbon and a big mint leaf.

They did show on the nbc broadcast how to make $2500.00 dollar mint jullops . Because as you know the top 1% have all sorts of ways to protect thier extra money for cheap inexpensive kentucky Derby drinks !!! I don't care how rich you are but if you spend That much on a drink you are just a nincompop.
