Wait I take back my enthusiasm, totally forgot that we're going to have to listen to hours and hours of Arrogate Discourse.

I've switched over to NBCSN, and it looks like we will be getting non-stop background and human interest stuff with which we (the TBC folks) are already quite familiar. Still, it's nice to watch these races in high definition, even if I have to sit through all the fluff. :lol:
For fans who tend to only watch the Big Race Days, I do think NBC does a nice job of explaining while entertaining.

ETA: Since I'm on my computer, that means I'm sitting through the anthem. Which is a bit off-key. :? :oops:

I can't believe Rushing Fall is 4-1...

Threw some extra down on Now You're Talking, 60-1 is too good to pass up.

I miss the pedigree info that TVG puts up during post parades. Even DRF's Entries doesn't have the breeding for most of the Euro shippers.

Little comment from Jerry about how the horse he rode is named "Fatal Drinking"

Kudos to the NBC folks for pronouncing Flavien Prat's name correctly, something that many of the TVG talking heads still can't seem to do. :P

Odd that they really didn't let Sharp Azteca roll. They clearly had a lot of horse but went so slow it gave Battle of Midway the ability to get into a challenging position. I think a better rider wins that one on Azteca.

I'm already stressing out. Looks like only the Classic is televised on NBC, all the other races are on the NBCSN channel which I don't get.
