I don't think even Coburn believes that anymore. :P 8-)

He's looking even better now.

Yeah I remembered that you were rooting for him to do well--he certainly did.

There's too much emotion in this sport... too much in life. Y'all need to be more Vulcan-like in attitude and will all pan out nicely.

Just won an eclipse as the top trainer in 2016. Then won his first classic this past weekend. And he has a list of owners worldwide clamoring to get into his barn.

Oh, and he's only 38 years old!

So I'd lay odds the other way on this one.

I didn't like Cloud Computing in the race, to my chagrin, but should have relied on the fact that Brown rarely runs his horses in races over their head, and it is rare when his horses don't run well in a race.

NBC's coverage is usually pretty good after they got rid of the skaters, but in Boston during the telecast there was a crawler about a poor kid whose body was found after he got lost going home from a party, and not long after that NBC was showing an inebriated looking guy running along the tops of the porta-potties and falling while his friends took pictures. A bad though unintentional juxtaposition, but their focus on the infield in this race doesn't do much for the sport.
