Well, this year's horse of choice for the Kentucky Derby is Curlin. I found out last night that this terrific horse is owned by a friend of my brother's, George Bolton. The Boltons have a small racing stable outside of Baltimore and won the Hunt Cup in 1998. Curlin will be racing under George's colours, as the owners take turns running the horse under each of their stables' colours. Curlin is in the No.2 post position, and will be wearing orange and blue stripes with white sleeves, and a blue cap. The morning line on Friday is 7-2.
