What brought you to the Louisiana Derby this year? Have you been before? The Fairgrounds is always an enjoyable day. Tell me about your dress. I found my dress in a tiny vintage thrift store in Brookhaven, Mississippi. We often gloss over the beauty of small town style. I was looking for a dress that had an eclectic and classic flair. I paired the dress with a pair of hot pink low pumps, lace gloves, and pearl bracelet and necklace. My favorite accessory is a vintage s white beaded handbag that I found I another small town store.

The Billingsley Prentice Plate was made especially for the instruction of apprentices at the Derby factory. William came to Nantgarw from the Worcester Porcelain Factory. William who also went by the alias William Beeley, was a well-known painter of flowers, especially roses, but also painted shells and landscapes.

I VIDEO is in the record books, and already plans are being made by the connections of the Derby starters to determine where their horses will run next. To help dissect the performances of each horse, and help determine what impact their performances might have on future races, here is a horse-by-horse recap of what transpired in the Derby! American Pharoah 1st The Derby favorite did almost everything right, tracking a modest pace while racing wide, bidding for command on the final turn, and drawing clear of Firing Line to win by a bit more than a length.

In any case, the final time of 2: I in two weeks. Dortmund 3rd Martin Garcia made a bold tactical decision to seize the early lead and it almost paid off, as Dortmund was able to get away with setting a modest pace before tiring slightly in the final quarter-mile to finish three lengths behind American Pharoah. Trainer Bob Baffert indicated that Dortmund will likely run back in the Preakness, where I believe the shorter distance and less tiring track could enable him to turn the tables on American Pharoah.

Frosted 4th He broke a step slowly and found himself near the back of the pack early on, but put in a big rally on the final turn while racing wide and kept plugging away in the homestretch to just miss third place. His connections have mentioned that the Travers Stakes gr. I in August at Saratoga is the primary goal, but a run in the Belmont Stakes gr. I could still be a possibility. If he does run in the Belmont, I would hope to see him utilize the tactical speed that he has shown in past races to secure good early position, as his current late-running style has not historically been successful in the Belmont.

Danzig Moon 5th After sitting a few lengths off the lead through the first seven furlongs, Danzig Moon was put to a drive on the final turn and kept on courageously, clinging to fifth place over a group of late-runners to secure the last piece of the Derby purse.
