i've never bet on a race. i just like to look over the field and pick one without rhyme or reason. my last winner was Barbaro 2 years ago. i picked Affirmed in '78 when i lived in Louisville. wish i had bet on that one now... 2 winners in 30 years is a pretty sorry record but i still like to try.

this year my choice is Eight Belles.

PERFECTA! PERFECTA! PERFECTA!

BIG BROWN!!!
WOO HOO!!!!!

Glory mingled with tragedy

Bet the house on BIG BROWN!
At the last minute placed a PERFECTA on
BIG BROWN and EIGHT BELLES!
20 & 5

WON THE PERFECTA! WON THE PERFECTA! WON THE PERFECTA!
which paid MUCH more than I would have made on just BIG BROWN!

Thanks Cheynn!

Happiness mixed with sadness over the result

RIP EIGHT BELLES

Palma, I am impressed! I knew you were in the hat business, but had no idea whatsoever you had a Derby sponsorship. Look at Photos 7 and 9 in that series -- GoDiva Hats prominently placed.

Not to belittle Palma's talents but, I think that says Godiva Liqueur, no?

ok.. i'll go out on a limb again.. i like El Gato Malo -- The Bad Cat.

i think it's interesting that 3 of the 14 horses racing in Preakness (Behindatthebar, Giant Moon and Yankee Bravo) are cousins, having the same grand sire, Storm Cat.

Good luck, Palma
