My Equibase app converted the times on me, my bad. :lol:

Jerry Bailey just said that Street Band's jockey is Sophie Turner. It's a big week for Sophie - big Game of Thrones episode and then she got married to one of those Jonas boys and now she's a jockey despite being quite tall.

Of course, he MEANT Sophie Doyle, actual jockey.

Well that was... eventful. Good news it it looked like Positive Spirit was okay after going down very hard after the start.

Serengeti Empress earned every step of that win and I'm very happy for her.

Nice win by Serengeti Empress! And yay for Liora to get up for second!

Glad Positive Spirit seems to be okay. And Bellafina proved again that she's just not a fan of Churchill.

The stream seems loathe to replay it, but I think that incident was entirely due to Jaywalk. I couldn't tell where she finished but I wonder if she'll be dq'd to last. EDIT: nope, apparently not.

I'm so glad to see Serengeti Empress redeem herself. She showed a lot of guts today, and she's just a beautiful filly.

Oh well. Jaywalk is obviously not the same horse especially when she can't get the lead. Super win by Serengeti Empress (she didn't stop this time) and Jose Ortiz (any Ortiz is a plus on any horse)...and Tom Amoss (a real fine training job)...Hey, nice result.

Super happy for Serengeti Empress! I’ve liked her a lot since her first few 2yo races, glad to see she got her big day!

Manny Franco got SUPER lucky to roll out in front of Positive Spirit, could have been a terrible accident.

I'm very happy about Serengeti Empress winning the Oaks. Alternation should get a bit of a bump up from this and the folks at Pin Oak are outstanding individuals. Also happy for Tom Amoss who did an outstanding job of bringing her back from that horrible bleeding incident, both physically and mentally. Kudo's to all her connections!

yes very happy for Tom Amoss and his filly today - that incident was scary at the start - the jock on Jaywalk was at fault I agree - really hoping to hear both the horse and rider are ok tonight.

Jockey was up fine, not even a scratch on him. The filly grabbed a quarter but is otherwise sound according to the on track vet.

Paulick's Twitter box has a fabulous photo of the Churchill Downs outriders catching Positive Spirit, with their two outstanding ponies matching strides on either side of her. :D
