Our lovely relationship with the good folks at Crown Royal continues, everyone. As you may remember, last year they sent me over to represent TSS at the Brickyard 400. This year, we have a chance to show out at the Kentucky Derby and here’s how.
- Crown Royal sent me a gift bag with a special Crown drink recipe to enjoy during the Derby.
- Also, in the bag were the names of two horses that I’d be rooting for.
- If one of my horses wins then I’ll be heading to one of the other two triple crown races this year. Any the horses they gave me? Charming Kitten and Verrezano. And you know what? Verrezano is the prohibitive favorite to win with 4:1 odds. So excuse me while I pick out my finest seersucker jacket.
All you have to do is follow me on Twitter at @DavidDTSS and keep up with my tweets of the race. Show some support and keep an eye out for #reignon #Verrezano and #CharmingKitten hashtags. And use your powers of cheering to root for my horses like the end of the Peter Pan play where you have to will Tinkerbell back to life.
As always the good folks at Crown are using this opportunity to give back as the winningest jockey of all time Laffit Pincay, Jr. will donate $1 million to Thoroughbred Charities of America if he can name the top three horses in the race.
And here’s a vide of Pincay on Kimmel that’s pretty fun because why not.
