The Roses

I am reminded that this weekend is the Run for the Roses, the Kentucky Derby, the biggest show in horse racing.  If you've never been in Kentucky for a Derby, you've missed some of life's greatest excitement.  Big parties, parades, dances, all leading up to the greatest two minutes of horse racing.

You can see the Leaderboard here.  I've never heard of any of these horses, but I'm sure that I'll be paying attention on Saturday afternoon.  We haven't had a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, but I watched him, and Seattle Slew in '77 when I was stationed at Fort Knox.
