In order to prepare you for the Kentucky Derby, we offer our profile series Know Your Derby Horses. Our first profile: Homeboykris.
Pedigree: From the Derby Winner Fusaichi Pegasus' line. Called him Daddy 'Peg. It was all good.
Current Odds: 25/1, but that ain't nothing but a number, man. At my best when the haters hate.
Outlook: Chillin'. Takin' life one haybale at a time without worrying about the drama. Oh, you mean the racing thing. Haven't won since October. Bout to make this paper on Saturday, though.
Hobbies: Chillin' at the trap. Watching Mantracker. Would ride with that dude any day: stompin' around the woods, gettin' some decent chow, spendin' some time running fools down like a bearded gangster. Could get down with that any day, so holla at your boy, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. I'll do it for free.
Racing sometimes bums me out because: Can't wear my fitteds on the track.
Pre-race Psych-up Music: "Put On," Jeezy. Never, ever stop reppin' those streets.
Shorty on demand? Nelly Furtado, dawg. I know she's kind of Timbaland 2006, but I'm in the barn with some Ginuwine and a fresh water trough when you ready, girl. On Saturday, watch me: I'll be like a bird, baby, flyin' away from the rest like a maneater with promiscuous dollars.
