Steve at Wireplayers.com has collected a diverse and knowledgeable group of bloggers and twitter types to come together and vote every two weeks on this year's Kentucky Derby contenders. Somehow ye 'Ol Turk ended up with an invitation to join this group, go figure!
This is poll #1 for the group, and the ponies who will be nominated for the Triple Crown are just getting ready to show what they have, but it's a classy group that will be at worst winners of high priced allowance racing and at best the next crop of Grade 1 stakes champions, and health willing, one of them will emerge as our 12th Triple Crown winner. The ghost of Sir Barton shines on them.
Thanks Steve for your leadership in bringing folks together, not always an easy task in the blogosphere. Let's get it on!
Again, its early, but you get the idea. I can't imagine what an undertaking this was for Joe Hirsch in the days before the internet, and I'm not comparing this in anyway to his legendary work, but it is exciting to walk a bit in his shoes.
Have fun, Turk Out!
