FLASHY BULL PREPARES FOR KENTUCKY DERBY #5
The Kentucky Derby Post Position draw was held on Wednesday, May 3rd. West Point Thoroughbreds had the 18th selection which did not leave us with many options. The only spots left were the #1, #3 and #20. When the time came Terry Finley made the walk to the stage and selected the #20 post. Terry felt "there are some advantages to being the outside horse and in a BIG field it will help us to stay out of trouble early". Mike Smith preferred being on the outside as well. "We can come out running and place ourselves where we want to be by the first turn".

Now that we know what post we are starting from we can work on our game plan. Flashy Bull is doing great and is ready to go.
