I once won a lot of money on a horse named Mel's Woo Woo, which I always thought was kind of funny to say. This Saturday a whole lot of horse flesh will be going two turns for two million dollars in the Kentucky Derby. Right now it's hard to say who the favorite will be come post time shortly after 5pm but one thing is for sure, none of the horses names will make you laugh like these will.

I always enjoy watching and wagering on the Kentucky Derby. The race is a great piece of Americana and even if I can only afford to put two dollars on the outcome, it makes me feel like I am part of something truly special, something truly American. By the way if you'd like to watch and wager locally, our friends at Evangeline Downs will have special derby day treats for your on Saturday!
