got writing?

First, a quick shout out to the awesome 6th, 7th & 8th graders of Sea Girt Elementary. It was so great to meet you and I can't wait to hear your reactions to reading A Closer Look! Now for today's prompt. 

I'LL HAVE ANOTHER thundered down the race track edging out the lead horse, BODEMEISTER during the last seconds of the race to win the Kentucky Derby this passed Saturday. I've always enjoyed the pageantry of the day, the humongous, often outrageous, artistic hats 

and especially the interesting names of the majestic horses that race.

The 2012 Kentucky Derby horses were: 

Daddy Long Legs
Take Charge Indy
Union Rags
Rousing Sermon
Creative Clause
Daddy Nose Best
Went The Day Well
El Padrino
Done Talking
I'll Have Another

Write a short piece up to 250 words using at least 2 of the horse's names as part of the story. And you must include I'll have another in some way. And if you're really up for a challenge, include a description of a hat. 

We'll take submissions until May 16th and post the best on May 18th.
