Sometimes a headline just sounds so outrageous you just go with it. That’s the case here. I didn’t even know if this should be a blog, but I’m trying to grow horse racing shit. We’re talking Kentucky Derby. We’re talking a horse not wanting a bath. Whatever, it’s worth it for the Big Daddy reference alone.
Midnight Bourbon is one of the expected 20 horses to run in the Kentucky Derby. Great name. Big time bourbon fan, big time midnight fan. Put the two together and you’re in for a hell of a time. But Midnight Bourbon is officially the smelly kid at the Derby. Just creating complete bedlam because he didn’t want to take a bath.
Some of those pictures are wild though. We’re talking a fucking monster of an animal. Call me crazy, but I don’t want to step in and try to slow him down. Let him tire himself out like he’s your 2-year old son who doesn’t want to take a bath. May be talking from experience here. How about this hero though?
Oh a one hand save? She’s quickly moving up Coley’s draft board while Midnight Bourbon falls due to character issues. I can’t wait for the Derby on May 1 though. We got some stuff planned and I’m pumped to be doing a lot more in the horse racing world. But just for the race itself – we obviously need to see the draw – Essential Quality is a monster. Soup and Sandwich is a horse a lot of people like. I’m still eying up Known Agenda. Hot Rod Charlie is becoming a popular name. At the same time we’ve had news that isn’t too shocking with Concert Tour backing out and waiting for Preakness (among other horses).
Midnight Bourbon finally settled down to take his bath but now I’m ready to use him in all my exotics. Might have to bet him underneath in the exacta and tri. You don’t show this elusiveness all because of a bath without having a shot on May 1.
