Who’s your favorite in tomorrow’s ‘Run For The Roses’?

The 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchhill Downs begins about 4:25 Saturday, May 5, and will be broadcast on NBC and will be streaming on MSNBC with the pre-race activities starting at 2 p.m.

Sometimes called ‘The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,’ the Kentucky Derby always seems to live up to the hype. At the ‘Grateful’ household we like to pick our favorites and make friendly wagers on the outcome of the race.

I’m going with a long shot this year, I couldn’t resist the name, I think Daddy Long Legs will be the shocking winner of the 2012 Kentucky Derby.

My second favorite horse’s name in this year’s ‘Run For The Roses’ is Daddy Nose Best,(must be the Daddy thing).

The favorite as of today, Friday, May 4, is Bodemiester at 4-1 with jockey Mike Smith.

Union Rags is also considered one of the favorites along with Gemologist and some think I’ll Have Another could win.

Some jockeys who’ve won the Kentucky Derby are riding in the one-and-a-quarter-mile race tomorrow. Kent Desormeux is on Dullahan while Calvin Borel, three-time Derby winner (2010, 2009 and 2007), is aboard Take Charge Indy.

Here’s the remaining horses competing for the $2 million purse at the 138th Kentucky Derby:

-Optimizer

-Rousing Sermon

-Creative Cause

-Trinniberg

-Alpha

-Prospective

-Went The Day Well

-Hansen

-El Padrino

-Done Talking

-Sabercat

-Liason

Who do you think will win?
