    Who's your Kentucky Derby pick? The odds are saying Big Brown will walk away from them. I can't go with the favorite though...:smile2:

    It's Visionaire for me...:wink:

    Yeh, he'll most likely win. He's a big horse like Secretariat was. If he does I hope he's triple crown good. I'd like to see another horse win it in my life time...

    Gotta say I was rooting for Eight Belles and that was a sad ending to the race. She gave a good run for second, though. As always I will be rooting here on out for a Triple Crown winner. I hope Big Brown can pull it off.

    Hope Big Brown can win the triple crown. I am glad I was fishing today and missed the race. I hate to see to good horse like that break down, it ruins the whole deal for me....

    I had Eight Belles and Pryo; what a tragedy for such a beautiful and talented animal. Here's hope Big Brown can beat the odds and take the Triple!!!!

    I think these horses today are becoming such "super"athletes that their bone structure can't support the force their muscles can generate... I hope I'm wrong and we don't see this every year like the last 2....
