Kevin Scatuorchio’s 3 year-old Colt Verrrazano is a favorite to win at the Kentucky Derby 2013 in Churchill Downs, if you are wondering if Kevin named his fab horse after a bridge you got that right, but that is half the reason, his girlfriend and now fiancée Megan Ehmann is the other half of that.
A couple of years ago when Verrazano wasn’t even born and Kevin Scatuorchio’s girlfriend Meghan Ehmann knew way too little about horses, she asked him a question just to get to know a bit about horses.
“I didn’t know the first thing about a horse. So I said to him, ‘When you get a minute, can you tell me the difference between a filly and a colt?” she said.
He responded, “Yeah, I have a minute to tell you: One has a ***** . . . and one doesn’t.”
That’s was it for Megan she knew this handsome guy with the straight answers had something special, months later when she wasn’t sure whether or not compete at the 2010 NY Marathon he send her a little encouragement, a postal card with the Verrazono bridge on it, she had that same card framed and send to him, so when that little horse was born he knew just the perfect name to give him.
Let me tell you a little bit about these two love birds..
