My mom and I took a look at the derby field the other night. She hasn't made her pick but I chose "Hold Me Back" for mine. Nobody really stood out to me, but I really like his trainer, Bill Mott. That's pretty much the only reason I picked him. Cigar is my favorite racehorse of all time, and Bill Mott was his trainer. Anyway, I probably won't even get to see the race live, I'll be out riding.
Horse racing is getting harder for me to watch with all the breakdowns happening. I used to follow it rather closely. Aubrey and her family used to go to the races a lot and they would take me along too. We've been to the Preakness and the Breeder's Cup, when it was at Arlington. It was really fun. The best part about it is when the the grand stands aren't crowded and you can go sit right by the track. You can just about feel the horses thundering towards the wire.
Luna's face is much better today. The swelling is all but gone. The wound is still open but I think it will heal okay. I was going to bring my camera to get a picture, because my blog needs more blood and guts I think... but I forgot. Maybe I'll remember tomorrow.
Well I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!! Let me know your derby pick if you have one!
