Always Dreaming, mentioned in my last post only because he was the stablemate of the pretty gray Fast and Furious, won the Kentucky Derby by about 12 lengths. And he's a bay (brownish with black points), not by any measure a gray horse.
Fast and Furious put on a good show for a while. He ran a steady 5th place until the final turn. Then he decided to step back and see what was happening in the rear. He ambled across the finish line in 17th place.
As for my other gray--and the one I picked as the winner--Tapwrit came in 6th. Not disgraceful, but he won't make us rich, either. And the others were somewhere in the middle of the pack. Gunnevera was 7th (not bad for an orphan), Gormley was 9th (despite a good jockey). And Patch was 14th.
So there you have my full confession. You can trust me on a lot of things. I give good advice about writing. And I know a lot about cats. But horses? No. Mama didn't raise me to win at the racetrack.
