Virginia's entry in the Kentucky Derby, Quality Road won the race to Facebook and Twitter rather convincingly over his primary rival I Want Revenge. The other top pick, Pioneerof The Nile hasn't even gotten the computer turned on yet..

The three-year-old colt who was born at Edward P. Evans' Spring Hill Farm (about 20 minutes from the Virginia Gold Cup racecourse) is up and running on both Facebook and Twitter and training well in New York. He will ship to Kentucky next Tuesday.

QR is considered one of the favorites for this year's Run For The Roses, as is I Want Revenge. IWR now has his own Facebook page as well, but QR beat him there by about a week.
