Classic Empire favorite for Kentucky Derby

Well,  we all know that rarely does the “favorite” win and if so, the payout is low.  Not to mention, everyone loves a Cinderella story.  However, this year’s favorite Classic Empire drew an ideal post position of #14 in the 143rd Kentucky Derby.

A bit about Classic Empire:  He won last year’s Arkansa Derby and is trained by Mark Casse.  He was named as the 4-1 favorite earlier this week by oddsmaker Mike Battaglia.

Personally,  I am a bit more concerned about this rainy, cold weather for our Derby Party tomorrow and what hat I am going to wear.  Let the games begin!
