T.G. Shuck's Kentucky Derby Analysis

Updated: 05/01/2009 - I’m sure many of you are thinking what does a weather guy know about horse racing and why should I care what he thinks anyway? Well, only you can answer the second part of that question! Just to give you a little background, I’m a huge horse racing fan and have been for quite some time. Growing up not far from Keeneland, it sort of gets in your blood early even though we never owned horses and I’ve really never been around them much. I guess it comes naturally growing up with rolling hills around you. Trust me it isn’t about the gambling aspect of things, although I’ll wager a few times a year…I guess I’m more of a purist. Honestly I follow the sport of kings just like many would follow basketball, football or baseball. I can literally watch a horse race with nothing at stake and totally enjoy it. So it is easy for me to get excited about the 135th Run for the Roses, having spent the last few months following the prep races and researching the different contenders in Saturday’s classic.
