Keep your fingers crossed for horse owner, Bobby Flay, as he awaits the results of this afternoon’s Kentucky Oaks race at Churchill Downs.
The fillies-only race, held the day before the Kentucky Derby, pits Bobby’s Her Smile against a field of 12 others. Bobby told Al Roker on the Today Show this morning that on his off-time he likes to go to the track early in the morning and watch the horses work out. I guess it gets him away from the animals in the kitchen.Her Smile is running at 20 to 1 odds, which will mean a big payday for her fans and owner if she wins. For updates and results of the 5:45 pm race, check here.
Update: Her Smile came in 11th. Plum Pretty won; St. John's River placed and Zazu showed. Too bad, Bobby. :-(
