I'm going with Bravaso. If he's a winner, my girls will get to feed carrots to another champ.

Is this horse owned by someone you know?

I know nothing of the contenders, and I never have. I don't follow it until the day of the race. I just hope that the race is close and fun to watch.

I've got to pull for the local boys. The Desormeauxs with "My Boy Jack" and "Noble Indy" second if he breaks right. Fastest horse on the track.

We don't know the owners, but the pretty blonde that has worked him out the past month is a really good friend of ours. She always has some winners of her own, but D. Wayne and Bob Baffert use her quite a bit at the big shows. She also breezed American Pharoah, and that's how my wife and daughter were able to "meet" a tripple crown winner. I've been watching the pre-dawn workouts this week on Trackside Live, and it ought to be a good race.

That’s really cool! It’s amazing how six-degrees-of-separation we are from things.
