Re: Preakness Day

Many thanks to Justify for keeping my perfect record of attending weddings on Belmont day with Triple Crowns on the line intact.

Re: 2018 Preakness Stakes

The one and only Sunday Silence! $315.55 later and no schedule confirming my boyfriend definitely has off (my sister doesn't know she's plan B) and we are Belmont bound... which definitely means that Justify will not win tomorrow . Somehow. If he wants to do that he'll have to break the heretofore ...

Re: Justify

45.77 (3rd fastest Derby half mile ever) I've seen this all over the place, where is it coming from? It is completely untrue, there have been three faster opening halves in the past decade alone. This list from 2011 doesn't even put it in the top five. The points system may have eliminated most of ...

Re: Derby Day Watch-along

I said earlier that I hoped Magnum Moon came in last. OK - I'll settle for next to last, but wasn't it Magnum Moon who slammed Mendelssohn? He should be relegated to last. :x why do you hate MM so much? what's wrong with him? It's not the horse - although he's not that good. It's the owners - the L...

Re: Derby Day Watch-along

Mendelssohn got body-slammed when the 15 turned left into him, and then the horse ran into him again just when it looked like Mend' might recover. I wouldn't be surprised if he's really body-sore tomorrow. If he were a human athlete, he'd be headed for an ice tub right about now. :( Yeah, the 14 po...

Re: Derby Day Watch-along

So onto to Preakness now? Who else goes? Who waits for the Belmont? It'll be a TC because this is the first year since 2012 I'm not going to the Belmont. Oh well, I saw 2015 in person. I guess I can do it on my couch. I am attending a wedding on Belmont day and I am sitting at 2 for 2 for TC attemp...

YES. Okay, it actually has nothing to do with the shoes, it's just that Pletcher is a lizard person who prefers this weather. Spread the word!

Re: 2018 Kentucky Derby News & Notes

I know this is a bit off-topic but, has anyone seen Harley today in Keeneland's post parades? That photo of him with the rearing two-year-old on the previous page was taken yesterday, and I wonder if he ended up needing time off from work today. I miss seeing that big ol' handsome 'pony.' ;) Wow! L...

Not sure why Classic Empire was so far back. Not sure it was gonna matter anyway.

Hope Thunder Snow is ok
He was broadsided at the start.
