With Wait A While now retired the title of my official favorite horse is up for grabs. I don't often write about sentiment because on any given day I may choose to go against my favorites. Liking them doesn't make them good bets. But ultimately I feel that sentiment is what keeps many of us in the game. Losing streaks can sour anyone off of betting and injuries can quell the enjoyment of a race but old favorites keep drawing us back.
Here are some of my current favorites, I didn't list them in any particular order although I do think that Gio Ponti will take over as my official favorite.
Coronet of a Baron
Tin Cup Chalice
