No, seriously-- his name is Wicked Strong and he's wicked fast. In fact, he's one of the favorites to win the Kentucky Derby tomorrow with 8-1 odds as of this writing. As you have likely sorted out by now, he does indeed have New England roots. The colt comes from Centennial Farms, just down the road in Beverly with the owner, Don Little, being an Ipswich, MA native. Normally I don't have a horse in this race (see what I did there), but I'll be pulling for Wicked Strong tomorrow. And I'm also hoping that someday they send a horse named Yeah Guy to the Derby...
