May the Fourth be with all those racing today!

Beware the Revenge of the Fifth at the Kentucky Derby today!

🏇  Fun fact:  Post position 5 has produced the most number of Derby winners, and horses starting from post position 5 have the best average finish in Derby history!

This year’s field is full of favorites with unfortunate Derby jinxes!  Audible is this year’s lucky post 5 starter, but he was bred in New York, a state that has bred only one Derby winner ever.  We are rooting for Mendelssohn in post position 14 to become the first European-trained horse and the first UAE Derby champion to win the Derby!  But, if we had to place a bet, we’d put our money on the heavy favorite Justify to break Apollo’s Curse and become the first Derby winner since 1882 that did not race as a two-year-old!

Apollo’s Curse has been broken!!  What an amazing run by Justify—third fastest half-mile in Derby history and he still had enough left in the tank to win without any serious challenges down the stretch, all on the wettest day in Derby history!

Happy Star Wars Day!  May the Fourth be with you all!

This thug claims he’s here to kidnap me, but he didn’t bring any noms.  I refuse to be kidnapped without noms!

I’m staying right here until I see noms!

(Can you believe my BB-8 costume from 2016 is already too small for me?!)
