It is Derby Day once again! My choice remains the same in the colt, Nyquist. I’ll be watching from Santa Anita, in my usual place, so if you see me you can say hi!
On the first Saturday in May, 1979, a gray colt by the name of Spectacular Bid, ridden by teenager, Ronnie Franklin,charged down the stretch to win the Kentucky Derby. He went on to win the Preakness but lost the Belmont Stakes. Since 1979 is the year of my birth, when I saw this I thought it fitting that I have this signed saddle cloth. So I bought it. Now just need a frame and some place to put it!
