The Kentucky Derby is coming up tomorrow (5/1).  While Vegas has their odds, I like to pick my horses simply on their names.  Who would you pick?

You have to admit, the names of these horses get pretty stinking creative. They've almost all got some pretty interesting back stories.  The horse above is the one that has the best odds to win it.  It's name is Essential Quality at it's got 2-1 odds this weekend.  How did they get their names?  There are actually some really cool ones here.  Check out where they got their names from by clicking here.

If you know absolutely nothing about odds and betting, chances are, you'd bet based on what they look like or the names that they've been given.

Here are the horses that are scheduled to run tomorrow:

Known Agenda

Brooklyn Strong

Medina Spirit
Hot Rod Charlie
Midnight Bourbon
Dynamic One
Helium
Hidden Stash
Essential Quality
Rock Your World

So I asked you on facebook who you would bet on to win the Kentucky Derby tomorrow solely on the name of the horse.  It wasn't supposed to be based on odds or insider knowledge...just the name that the horse was given.

 

Not all of the horses got votes.  Here were the 11 that got voted on (If there isn't a percentage next to their name they only got 1 or 2 votes):

  • Midnight Bourbon  23% of the votes
  • Brooklyn Strong
  • Hidden Stach  11% of the votes
  • Hot Rod Charlie  34% of the votes
  • Soup & Sandwich
  • Super Stock
  • Rock Your World
  • Dynamic One
  • Medina Spirit
  • Highly Motivated
  • Helium

Hot Rod Charlie is easily WNY's favorite based solely on the name.  We will see tomorrow.  Coverage will begin at noon and the race will actually take place at 6:57pm.

Who did the WYRK Personalities choose based only on the name?
