Curlin is the early favorite for tomorrow's Kentucky Derby, but another thoroughbred—a human—is also the focus of some hot wagering.

A pink hat like the one she wore in Virginia this week is an 8-to-1 proposition, according to online bookmaker Bodog. Blue and white/silver are the co-favorites at 5 to 2. There is no line on a bejeweled crown.
