Oh, Mine That Bird.

Will we ever see another one like you?

When was the last Derby broadcast with the old crew (Tom Hammond). I find myself missing them this year.

I always watch on enough of a delay, so I can fast forward through the celebrity crap. I also fast forward through all the replays of prior Kentucky Derbys.

The only one I watch every time is Mine That Bird.

Every year. And multiple times. I back it up in amazement at where Borel came from and how he weaved through the gaps then exploded. Mine That Bird was 3 lengths clear before Durkin saw him and realized who it was. More than that, on the first full call of the entire field Durkin nearly forgot to mention Mine That Bird at all. He thought he was finished with everybody. Then he paused and saw Mine That Bird further back than he thought any horse could be. Still, Durkin regrouped at the wire and his final words and tone of that call perfectly captured the astonishing result.

I used to have a pic on my computer of Borel on Mine That Bird, looking up at the sky and pointing. It was from the back.

I wonder what happened to it.

More matchups are available than I have ever seen before. They are putting them up in waves. It's like a 3-minute scroll to get through them. Some are listed but don't have odds yet. This odds drop on Roadster has made him available in matchups I never thought I would see

Japan racecourses look so fun. I want to go so bad.

Von Miller is living the life.

That said, I still think it'd be more fun to stick this forum on air and just let us have at it.

Me too, but more because Xpressbet just died on me.

guys, on the walkover just now, Todd Pletcher said he was surprised they harrowed the track - he seemed a bit, maybe concerned or disappointed - what do you think he meant? that it will play now to closers? or the other way around? I didn't understand what he was getting at.....

They harrowed it to open it up from sealing it. It already looks deep from the rain. I imagine the front runners might be tired, which is now why I'm trying to unload on Code of Honor and Xpressbet literally will not let me deposit money.

ok thanks Som..... I appreciate that -- maybe Shug will have another Orb type win today then with Code of Honor - and good luck getting your bet down too!

Not meant to be. Probably better I save the money anyway. It's not often I'm willing to toss my money away and a website won't let me.

They have ONE DAY a year to work properly. How do you let your servers crash today.

They've resealed the track, I think. Rated sloppy.

I need Irad to go fast early. I no longer anticipate Maximum Security among the early leaders.
