I tried the 14 Hands red blend today because they had a Kentucky Derby label, and since today was Derby Day, how could I resist? It wasn’t half-bad, actually. Not my favorite, but totally drinkable.
I picked Whitmore as my winner. BAD choice, guys. He came in LAST. I would say second to last, but the actual last horse didn’t even finish, so technically, my guy was last. I switched to Whitmore at the last minute because of the jockey (Victor Espinoza, who rode Triple Crown winner American Pharoah last year). My original choice was Oscar Nominated, who only finished two ahead of Whitmore, so I wouldn’t have won anything no matter what. Not a good day for the betting version of me. Luckily, the betting version of me doesn’t see much action. She’s not lucky.
