I rooted for two horses in this Kentucky Derby: American Pharoah because that's the way I always misspell "pharaoh," and Frosted, because of his unusual color. Of course I put no money on either of them, but it sure was fun watching them come in 1st and 4th!
Generally I'm a very good speller, but "pharaoh" is my downfall. Not this time! (As I understand it, the horse was named via some contest; the contest winner clearly has the same hangup with the word.)
