2008 Derby Week is here!

This weekend is 134th running of the Kentucky Derby horse race.  The race will again be run at the famous Churchill Downs horse track in Louisville, Kentucky.  And a few hundred thousand people will watch live the Oaks & Derby races.

Here’s a look at the Kentucky Derby raceweek festivities:
Friday, May 2nd (day):  Kentucky Oaks
Friday, May 2nd (night): Barnstable Brown Party, Kentucky Derby Spectacular Party
Saturday, May 3rd: Kentucky Derby

Here’s a look at the field of horses for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby race.

Favorites in 2008 Kentucky Derby:
* Big Brown
* Colonel John
* Pyro
Keep an eye on all three of these horses as the week progresses.  All three should wind up among the favorites when the odds are released.  Colonel John might wind up being the overall favorite, but I like Big Brown and Pyro.
