The 2008 Contenders

The latest Kentucky Derby contenders and defections are HERE.  Although it is not the official entry list, you can use it to outline your Derby picks for the upcoming Triple Crown contest on Horse Circle. I am still looking for new contest ideas, if not we will probably follow last years format. Give it some thought.

Nora -

Will the PP Draw be on National TV so I can see it? I'll make my decisions after that.

Last year's contest was just fine - make it an annual event.

I liked your response about Brian and notice that his blog is on your blog list. If you read the blog and also watch NBC Nightly News you will see the whole Brian - and the Peeps think he is terrific.

He lives in New Canaan CT, in his wife's grandmother's old house which has as he says "mice, water in the basement, and lilacs in the yard".

will we be picking the oaks too?

I've got a few in mind, but I'll wait for the official draw like Joan, too. I say do the same contest as last year- that was fun!

ps: I got my awesome package of Stella Marie Soap today! Thanks, Pookie!!! I love it and you picked different ones than Amy did so I have a great mix. You're awesome! xoxo

ESPN@ will carry the PP Draw today - Wednesday - at 5PM.

I'd like to add the Oaks to the weekend festivities, too - thanks for mentioning it , Chris.

Joan and Chris: I'll post the Derby contest after the PP Draw. I like the idea of doing an Oaks contest, too, but feel it might be overwhelming to some people. (there is also a good chance that Eight Belles will scratch from the Oaks and opt for the Derby which will confuse further.) I'll keep the Oaks separate from the Derby contest but will post the entries today.

Kara: Your welcome! (you know you are my favorite ;)
