As flattering as that is, the photos aren't mine, I just bring them here for the masses to enjoy. The vast majority come from the twittersphere, usually accompanying articles or tweets but on occasion from people's personal snapshots.

I find Irish War Cry and Gunnevera more attractive. Maybe because I am sucker for chestnuts. A chestnut-nut. But I probably like Classic Empire more to win the Kentucky Derby than either two.

From a Pioneer to a Pharoah and Empire! Empire Maker indeed.

He looked really good this morning. Galloped 1 mile 1/2. He's moving fluidly over the track, looks effortless. Looks very happy and focused, professional, his ears mostly pricked but soft and mobile. Coat is shiny
He also looks like he's put on weight when compared to the AK Derby

would be thrilled to see classic empire win it today - love his jock and trainer - certainly rooting for them to do it - the horse is so handsome - and I respect his fiery spirit - not a dummy and no pushover - love him!!

I like Classic Empire's chances alot more thanks to the weather condition and watching McCraken get more overbet over him. The current chalk is Always Dreaming which I wouldn't argue against. Always Dreaming just looks sharp and could be the 5th consecutive Derby favorite to win. But Classic Empire's stock has gone up with me as a bettor once his odds went up.
