I can't help but get a little nostalgic on Kentucky Derby day.
I'm getting ready to ride a really promising filly -- Summer Applause, for trainer Brett Calhoun -- this afternoon in the Oaks.
I'm back at Churchill Downs for another shot at the Kentucky Derby, and just like anyone else who has a mount in this field, I know I'm fortunate to be here.
Here we go again! Kentucky Derby 137 goes off at 6:30 p.m. (EDT) and I'll be in the saddle on Master of Hounds.
I drew a great post position tonight on Master of Hounds.
When you're getting on a horse you've never ridden before one of the most important things you can do is talk to the team about his running style and what they've done with him.
As one reader commented on my last entry, so much happened on the Kentucky Derby prep scene in less than a week.
The Derby trail is somewhat tough this season because other than Mike Repole's horse, Uncle Mo, nothing's really jumping off the page at you.
It's pretty hard to top a win like that, but before we say goodbye to 2010, I thought I'd give a quick update to everyone who reads this blog.
He's a better horse than he showed today
I think I'm better off with post one, kind of.
Lookin at Lucky is one week away from his start in the Kentucky Derby.
As far as Lookin at Lucky is concerned, he was lucky again.
This race definitely put some more experience on Lookin at Lucky and he answered all our questions
Happy Kentucky Oaks day! Yes, there is another race besides the Derby, and for 3-year-old fillies, this is it.
