Local Horse Union Rags Is the Kentucky Derby Favorite With Inspiring Story

At 9/2 odds, a local horse is the favorite to win this weekend’s Kentucky Derby. Union Rags is from the area and has the same trainer as Barbaro. Union Rags was raised on his owner Phyllis Wyeth’s Point Lookout Farm in Chadds Ford, where George Washington is rumored to have stopped and plotted against the British for the battle of the Brandywine. Their tale is pretty inspiring. Seriously, if you have 25 minutes to spare today, spend it watching this. [The 700 Level]
