Smarty Jones was bred about 2 miles away from us. A friend's kids played with him as a colt. Beautiful horse. Sweet temperament I'm told.

 

Barbaro was another local Chester County horse....still brings a tear to my eye.

 

 

Thoroughbreds  are temperamental but like pitbulls - total love bugs   - in my experience

We had a customer order a birthday cake  who wanted a Derby theme with a Happy Birthday message and to please include "I'll Have Another" on the cake as well.  Apparently years ago, the birthday boy placed a bet on a horse - a very long shot to win - and of course, the horse won; big payoff.  It comes to light that the wife FORGOT to place the bet 😮 !  I couldn't resist asking if they were still married (yes) and if this is a annual Derby reminder (yes).  I didn't want to do a mean spirited reminder of their missed fortune, so I found a free watercolor image of a horse winning and used that as an edible image with some red roses and the client was happy with it but I so wished I could have seen the reaction when the birthday boy and wife opened the box!

If it deals with the derby, make it quick.  One trick pony 

 

No! The "ponies" are the calm ones that settle the hot bloods. They have a strong purpose. Seriously - I have never had a mint juel - maybe next year.
