Side note, I'd like to touch the track surface. Looks like nice, squishy mud I would have played for hours in as a kid.

This is taking a loooong time...

They have an excuse to leave him up since War of Will didn't run second... Honestly, I kind of agree with Mott. Shouldn't matter the race.

Agreed. Watching the replay, War of Will looked like he was about to run right over top of Maximum Security's butt. It is very lucky that he didn't clip heels with him. Had he fallen right there, yikes.
And that was the point... yes, they were obviously close when he came out but they didn't clip heels.

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 the Preakness now though lol.

Wrong again. You don't need a disaster to merit a DQ

This becomes confusing when we watch worse happen daily with nothing done. There is no uniform goal.

Personally, I think CDI was making a point on this given the problems facing the sport.

This isn't what I meant when I said I wanted a longshot to win.

The ceremony is going to be surreal.

I'm kind of queazy about this one. I was saying it was a foul and there should be a dq but I felt comfortable saying it since I didn't think there was a snowballs chance of it happening.
