I Want Revenge


One of my favorite sporting events to watch with my girls is the Kentucky Derby. I love the pageantry and the history of the event. They love the horses and the women in the stands with their fancy clothes and hats.

We have started the first Saturday in May off the same way for the last six years. Waking up, grabbing the newspaper, and then all sitting down in the living room choosing our own horse to root on later that day.

The person who picks the winning horse gets to decide what family activity we will do Sunday. Not a bad way to spend a day with your daughters.

This year's race will have even more meaning to my girls and I.

I Want Revenge is the early favorite and a friend of mine happens to own one percent of the horse. He will be at my house Saturday enjoying the race with my girls and I in what should be an exciting day.

All week I have been reading articles on how I Want Revenge has been training and all indications are that he is primed for a big race. The anticipation of watching has been building and my girls are almost as excited as I am.

"How many more days until the horses race, Daddy?" Alani asked Monday morning during breakfast.

"Five more, baby."

"And your friend's horse is going to win, right?"

"I hope so."

"Good, then that's the horse I am picking."

For one year, my girls and I will all be picking the same horse.

For more Wordful Wednesdays go to Seven Clown Circus.

  1. Great, I'll be rooting for that horse too!

    Have you ever played 'Run for the Roses' Uh, did Fogelberg do that song. I just love that song, about the horse growing up to run the Kentucky Derby!

    BTW, stop by my blog, I have an award for you, I know it is silly, but it is there :)

    Have a great day with your beautiful girls and let us know who wins. Carrie

    It is a very special memory you're making with the girls.. You'll never know how much.. :):):)

  5. What a fun thing to do. I just may have to start watching. I think my 7 yr old would get a kick out of it. And I can say I know a guy who knows a guy that owns 1% of that horse.

  8. LOL so not what I was expecting from the subject line! How cool and fun that you will be watching with someone who has an actual stake in the race!

    Did you know there is some kind of "red carpet" show on before the race? I can't remember which network.
