One of these days, when I have enough vacation time saved up I plan on making a multi week vacation to Kentucky to see Rolex and then the Kentucky Derby. Yesterday’s race was highly entertaining and I already have non-horsey friends calling me to ask whether or not we’ll have a Triple Crown winner this year. While I quite like American Pharoah, I’m not sure he has what it takes to go all the way. That said, if someone sent him my way to go play as an eventer? I’d totally take him. After all, we’ve seen what they can do after being a superstar at the track. Icabad Crane won his first Prelim this weekend!
