    If I were a horse, I would have long pretty legs, light brown shiny fur, white furry feet, long pretty legs, big pretty eyes, and a pretty horse figure. And of course big white teeth and a very nice horse voice.

    He he..."my pretty pony". I remember that toy. And is this odd or what: banasy thinks of 'my little pony' after reading of Animal Kingdom's win. While I myself think A[nimal] K[ingdom]'as in AK-47' and then on to the AN-94, an assault rifle made by the same AK corporation in Russia. Venezuela recently purchased over 300 million-dollars worth of them. (as if the USA would invade Venezuela as soon as Iran is occupied)

    These thouroughbreds are amazing to be sure. But I prefer a little known "worlds richest quarter-horse futurity" @ Riodoso Downs. Quarter horses are most impressive at a full run.

    I didn't realize I was watching the Kentucky Derby at first. I thought it was a Sarah Jessica Parker lookalike contest.
