And whether you chose California Chrome or not (none of us did) it was still an exciting race. Noah's pick of Chitu and Morgan's pick of Uncle Sigh actually led the majority of the race. We had to spend a little while explaining to Noah that it's OK that his horse didn't win, it's the fun and excitement of watching that makes it special. (That and the fact that we didn't have any actual money staked on it, hehehe)
Pictures will say it all today, can't even begin to cover it all. Happy Derby Day!
