    It’s only a couple weeks left until Derby Day! As always, it’s going to be a fun day, where everyone dons their old-fashioned hats and goes out to see an exciting race. This is always an impressive event and the anticipation of the big race is just breathtaking. If you are hoping to be part of it, buy Kentucky Derby tickets right now! There are three horses that seem to be talked about most in their quest for this first race of the Triple Crown. I Want Revenge has had 8 starts, and has never missed the top three spots, including 3 wins. He seems to be the early favorite. Quality Road is just coming off two big wins in the main Florida prep races; he’s also been reported to be slightly injured, but it’s the same injury that last year’s derby winner had. Pioneer of the Nile is the third horse, who has vastly improved since starting to train under the auspices of Bob Baffert. He’s won his last four starts in a row. This will be a very exciting race, with the horses evenly matched and well-trained. The Triple Crown is coming soon!
