If you get in on it now you’ll be able to watch the 140th Kentucky Derby with me today. I decided to honor the Year of the Horse by saying something about this momentous event which takes place every year in Louisville, Kentucky at the Churchill Downs. The preliminaries have taken place already with one yesterday at the Kentucky Oaks and as far as I can tell California Chrome has been designated as the early favorite. The Kentucky Derby has been dubbed the Greatest Two Minutes in Sports but the preparations go on for many, many months before the actual event.
Other contenders this year are Untapable, Thank You Mary Lou, Sugar Shock and Fashion Plate- appropriately enough. You’ll see women in the stands wearing these fabulous to outrageous hats and they’re sipping mint juleps- it’s a tradition ! My Miss Sophia will probably be impressing me no end and if you want to find out more before you watch the final countdown go to www.kentuckyderby.com but I would put my money on just tuning in at NBCSN immediately and soak it all in especially if you haven’t even been introduced before. It’s fab and it’s a horse !
