Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Wait I just realized I have no idea how to score the Derby Pool contest now. I suddenly disagree with the decision!! I looked at it and you have one clear winner that had the trifecta. I was wondering what would happen if you had to go to the margin of victory tie breaker? Despair, because the offi...

Re: Master Fencer(JPN) to Kentucky Derby

He was dead last at the head of the stretch, and I have no idea how he made up that much ground. Speaking as someone who has said some unkind things about him, he and his connections deserve credit for a good run. I hope he stays here and gets a chance to show us that closing kick again!

Re: 2019 Triple Crown

So, hypothetically what would happen if Country House somehow manages to win the Preakness in Belmont? Besides hell freezing over and pigs sprouting wings. Glorious anarchy! Now that we've had one satisfying TC winner and one controversial one, I'm all-in on Team Chaos. I want them to dead heat in ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Not sure if anyone else still has the channel on, but they just cut back to the announcers for a few minutes. Bailey and Moss both agreed that Max Sec was the best horse but deserved to come down because he impeded multiple other contenders and nearly caused a horrible disaster. They also showed a s...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I fully agree that the inconsistency should be addressed, but I think applying the rules to even major races is a good way to start the conversation. It will be very interesting to see which narrative emerges in the next few weeks, and I hope they both go to the Preakness. There's a lot of vitriol o...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

It looks like he was placed behind War of Will. Code of Honor second, Tacitus third, Improbable 4th, Game Winner 5th. I honestly don't think there was a "wrong" choice there, and I don't begrudge the stewards at all for having to make that decision. The public magnifying glass on this race may have ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Holy shit!!! Having no personal stake in it at all (thanks to Code of Honor), I love the drama. Where did they put him? EDIT: That's actually a little untrue, I much prefer Mott as a trainer over Servis. As do many people in the sport, from what I've heard. I'm rooting for Maximum Security to win th...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I'll tell you, we were inches away from clipped heels and a 10-horse pile up in the Kentucky Derby. Holy shit...... I bit my nails off thinking about this all day. I feel like in some ways we're operating on borrowed time. Just Thank God nothing happened and we all get to enjoy it for a little long...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

"He was inexperienced and scared so he bore out and almost caused a horrible accident in the biggest race of the year" Maybe give your horses more exprience then?? I say he would come down on any Tuesday, he won't come down here, but there will still be repercussions because that could have been ter...

I say it stands and the jockey is fined. I don't think it affected the outcome, but it was dangerous.

Oof, the winner was a wrecking ball turning for home. They'll never DQ him, but that affected a lot of horses.

Did...did Master Fencer...hit the board?

Is that what I heard Collmus say?
I think I heard that too? Country House was second but there was just a wall of staggering horses behind them.

EDIT: Nope I think he was fifth. Code of Honor third, Tacitus fourth.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

...did I see 1:12 and change?

Not enthused by that race at all, but the winner was very game. Honestly, I'm most impressed by the public here. An absolutely incredible streak.
