1. I haven't been following the race, yet.
I have stocked up on Kentucky whiskey and have a garden full of fresh mint. ;)
Right now I will go with Chocolate Candy because I like the name. Will tune in later to find out move about the horses and get back to you. :)

6. Did you see the filly on Rachel's show last night !!
She could have won it all, the way she was running. But she is not in the race today?

7. Yeah I saw her, talk about a blow out!
Edited on Sat May-02-09 09:49 AM by cherish44
I'll bet we might be seeing her in the Preakness or Belmont. I remember Rags to Riches in 2007 whomped the field in the Oaks and went on to be the first filly to win the Belmot in more than 100 years...
