Pant, pant, pant, just keep running, don’t look back, don’t stop, don’t think about it. All these thoughts racing through my mind as I race on. I come to a sudden stop and drink water, so cool that I felt better quickly. I was then draped in roses. This is my life, my goal, my love and passion. I want to do this for as long as I can. I love it, the strength, agility, loyalty, and passion it takes. It’s all so great! I am a horse, and I just won the Kentucky Derby! Not the Louisiana Derby or the Santa Anita Derby or the Florida Derby, no, the Kentucky Derby. Kentucky is my home, and I love it here!

The author's comments:
I love Kentucky, and I enjoy watching horse racing so I wanted to write a piece that shows how I feel about Kentucky and the Derby.

Have you heard of the legend of Headless Annie? Or any of the other ghosts of Kentucky?

What a wonderful piece! I especially like the first line - I bet it's just what a horse would think as he's racing on the Downs. Good job!
