Taylor Hicks - Celebrity Guest At 2008 Kentucky Derby
Boy, ya never know where Mr. Hicks is going to show up next! If he's not at a basketball game, a golf tournament, a Nascar race, a baseball game, a football game, or fishing for bass, you might find him at a horse race! According to a blog entry on Taylor's myspace, he will be a celebrity guest at the 134th Kentucky Derby on May 3, 2008. Taylor is going to place a bet of $5000 on the horse that the Soul Patrol decides has the best chance of winning. The winnings will then go to the wonderful charity, Studio by the Tracks. Since it is a horse race, if for some reason the horse the Soul Patrol picks does not win, Taylor will still make a $5000 donation to Studio by the Tracks. So everyone do your homework and let us know by going to the blog on his myspace page with the same name and posting which horse will win the most money for Autism.
Here are all the entry's for the race!
