    Cheryl – Great choice. I am sure others will agree with your pick. No doubt California Chrome is the class of the field. My only concern is that favorites rarely win the Derby. I compare three-year old horses at this time of year to 16 year old boys – some mature early and some later. The favorites are the horses that have matured early. There are horses in the field that are just maturing and they will be among the favorites for the rest of the year. The challenge is to identify those that are about to blossom.

    I always get excited about the horses this time of year. Yesterday morning Patti (my wife), Amy (our director of marketing and my daughter) and I visited the backside of Churchill Downs (the working end of the track where the barns are located). We made a special stop to visit Foolhardy, a four-year old horse in which I have a small ownership interest. For a Louisville native, who has been going to the track since I was five-years old, owning an interest in a race horse is exciting. Owning an interest in a horse scheduled to run in the first race on Derby Day is a dream come true.

    Wildcat Red, Glenn Vick, Auburn Banking Company, Group 3. Decent odds 15-1, has Wildcat in his name and has a red coat like a certain horse by the name of Secretariat. Good luck Jack and the rest of the family with your horse on Derby Day. That is exciting!
