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!
