KENTUCKY DERBY GAME: ANYONE CAN PLAY!!!





HORSIES!!! HORSIES TIME!!!

FIRST, MY EXCITED CAROUSEL ENTHUSIASTS, CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST OF HORSES COMPETING TOMORROW.

choose one of the pack there as your winner of the Kentucky Derby tomorrow. the blog-game winner is the one who picks the actual winning horse. because of the comment moderation, there will probably be two people choosing the same horse, that's okay, relax, it's all in fun, just split the profits evenly and remain friends, this is just a game, not nuclear winter. also, breaking news: Black Onyx has been scratched, so don't choose Black Onyx. the profits in this case are the usual 3 comments from me at your blog, that's the prized prize from this whole competition. good luck, and i'll see you guys tomorrow. i'm going with Orb, let's see if i can finally get a chalk win here, morning-line favorites have not fared well in this race. Orb...that was some great music back in the day...

I'd like to ride the carousel, naked, please. Lady Godiva on a painted horse. You didn't ask about our hats. Remiss of you.(Moue) Throw me up please, she says, placing a dainty foot in his hands. I'll take Oxbow. Calumet Farms is reputable, and he looks strong and not skittish. Presently at 30-1. I generally pick the long shots, and they rarely fail to disappoint. Bon Chance, Phoenix.

thanks for playing, Missy, noted. moue, ha, i love it, how do you emoticon moue? :)

yes, you're right, it's become impossible to predict Kentucky, the winner is the last one you suspect, it's a total crapshoot, but that's why it's fun...

Gasp! I hope I'm not too late.... I'd like Golden Soul please. And I shall win ;)

Juli: you're right on time, thanks for playing! how was your celebratory respite?

Missy Little said...

Well, he proved comfortable in the mud, gave a strong showing, and even though he was overtaken, finished well. What more could one ask of a longshot. Its quite fortunate that you didn't ask a forfeit, Sir. (Wink)

the late phoenix said...

YEAH! FINALLY I WIN THIS THING!

Juli, the fact that we came in 1-2 means we're soul mates in real life.

Missy: yeah, it's always weird when I win my own games, the last thing I want is more of my comments, I'm thoroughly sick of myself by now! is your avatar a balloon?

Juliette said...

I was so close..

Celebratory respite was not long enough. I need more..;)

Juliette said...

Does that mean you have to comment on your own blog 3 times?
