Derby Day!

It's Derby Day!

Do you know where your horses are?

Have you placed your bets in hopes of great riches?

Here are the horses that are running today.

I myself am torn between AP Warrior (my forum site is Apparition Point), Lawyer Ron (Weasley anyone??? And I have bet on him before and he made me some money :D ) and of course Sinister Minister (Scrimgeour ya think?).

I am saying now that I think that a Harry Potter reference is the best way to go when betting on horses.

I shall update with the winner later this evening if I am not too innebriated.

Hey when am I ever too innebriated to be online??

Okay I shall update later with the winner, regardless!

ETA: Barbaro won the Derby, one of only six horses in the history of the race (The first Derby was run in 1875) to come to the race undefeated and leave with a win. He won by seven lengths, that's a lot if you don't know, so bring on the Preakness!

My dad and I always make bets about this kind of thing, but I forgot this time! Um... I have to go with either Steppinwolfen (go classic rock!) or Lawyer Ron!

I always bet based on funniest name - and here I would have to concur with the others on SteppenWolfer. Or Sinister Minister!

Well, had I bet, I probably would have bet for the Barbaro. But, that is only because that horse is from my area. Of course, I would have won...

Ah well, you gotta play to win...

I like the idea of Sinister Minister, and think that it might be quite tricky to say during the race. So that is my online bet.
Good luck and don't get too inebriated!
