Derby Day

UPDATE: Irish War Cry came in around 10th place. Congrats to Always Dreaming. He had a great day.

Well, it’s Derby Day at Churchill Downs. After yesterday’s disaster picks, I’m a little bummed out. BUT, today is a new day!

After the post picks on Wednesday, I’ve really had Irish War Cry #17 on my mind. No horse has won the Derby from post position #17. I’m thinking that in year 2017, #17 just might be the year!

Anyway, here’s a photo of the paddock area at Churchill Downs in June several years ago. The jockey has just mounted the horse for the race.
