We're giving away candy bars to our favorite horses, whether they won a BC or not and with our warped theory behind each horses' candy bar award. So let's get after it....
Reggie Bar. We give the Reggie Bar to Uncle Mo. Lots of hype, not much substance.
Kit Kat. Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf champ Stephanie's Kitten. Easy pickins'.
Everlasting Gobstopper. No brainer again. Drosselmeyer gets this long-lasting candy hands down. The horse with amazing stamina matches up perfectly with the gobstopper.
Ghirardelli White Chocolate bars. I used to love when they called Jason Williams, "White Chocolate" on the hoops floor. Now Hansen takes over the reins as the premier white horse.and gets a Ghirardelli wrapped white chocolate bar to go with the nickname.
Oh Henry. We'll give one of these to Gio Ponti, for being a war horse along the lines of Hank Aaron. He gave us a great career trying all different types of surfaces and not afraid to run against the best.
Baby Ruth. The sultan of the BC, winning three straight and ever immortalized in the record books, Goldikova gains a Baby Ruth bar. Shackleford gets a mention here for winning the Preakness in Baltimore, the Babe's hometown.
$100,000 bar (aka 100 Grand Bar). We'll just award this one to trainer Todd Pletcher based on the tweet of his alter ego in last night's twitterverse.
Heath Bar. Made with old English toffee...we'll send one of these to Wrote, it just seems right, doesn't it.
Whoppers. Another easy one. Court Vision $131.60 and Afleet Again ($85.20). Need I say more?
Wonka Bar. Who's got a golden ticket? Capt. Candyman Can takes this one hands down.
That's all I got....here's some more horseplay for you...
