I just always pick Catholic Boy when he runs. Every time I didn't in the past, he burned me.

Okay I'm not a huge fan of all the party stuff on these broadcasts, but that segment was pretty funny. Mesh shirt guy knows what's up.

The Coach was right about infield people.

I hope no one from TBC is in attendance, because an article on Google News has made it clear that it's kind of a disaster zone in the grandstand. :shock: :oops:

"Those attending the 2019 Preakness Stakes will likely avoid the wet conditions of this year's Kentucky Derby, but that's if they stay clear of the bathrooms at Pimlico Race Course.
According to The Baltimore Sun, less than five hours after gates opened for the second leg of the American Triple Crown on Saturday, nearly all women's restrooms at the grandstand were closed because of plumbing issues, while some men's bathrooms were described by visitors as equally unpleasant due to everything from non-flushing to overflowing toilets.
The first major sign of trouble came on Tuesday, The Sun reported, when "a water main broke outside the race course entrance." The malfunction was not unsurprising to guests, per the report, since Pimlico Race Course has long needed upwards of $300 million in renovations -- and just this year had its 6,670 grandstand seats deemed "no longer suitable" by engineering inspectors. But water problems reemerged Saturday, with Pimlico workers allegedly encouraging women to use men's rooms and closing off entire floors of bathrooms.
Dawn Siecker, a 10-year attendee of the Preakness Stakes, told The Sun that the day before the Stakes toilets were "spewing water everywhere, all at the same time."

Ugh. I know many (all?) sporting venues are lacking in sufficient women's restrooms, but Old Hilltop sounds like it should have been torn down decades ago.

Great, now I'm having war flashbacks to the 2008 Belmont... good luck everyone.

Everyone is sleeping on Twist, I'm really surprised by his odds. Not as surprised that Bourbon War is being bet down, but I do wish he retained some value.

Nice to watch a truly open, competitive TC race. Can't wait!

Again no lyrics on the screen? I know they're kind of embarrassing since Maryland My Maryland is an anti-Lincoln propaganda song but c'mon, help the drunks out.

Hooh boy the nerves are setting in.

Only two more years until I can enjoy the 2016 Derby edition of Maker's Mark I was gifted to fix this legally.

Seems like they spend more money on the infield party than the actual fans of the race. At this point, the race is the secondary event to the massive infield party.

Is Win Win Win a huge horse or was his size just distorted by the camera angle?

Based on last two combined speed figs and late pace from Brisnet pps...

Warrior's Charge
Speed: 192 (4th)
Late: 201 (2nd)
Overall: 393 (4th)

Improbable
Speed: 193 (3rd)
Late: 206 (1st)
Overall: 399 (1st)

Alwaysmining
Speed: 198 (1st)
Late: 201 (2nd)
Overall: 399 (1st)

Anothertwistafate
Speed: 195 (2nd)
Late: 200 (4th)
Overall: 395 (3rd)

1. Alwaysmining
2. Improbable
3. Anothertwistafate
4. Warrior's Charge

Beware of #3. He can wire this field. Javier was on Cloud Computing two years ago. I know I mentioned not caring for this sport and I really don't. Read another filly died yesterday. But just for the hell of it, that's my pick... #7 again.

Hopefully, no disqualifications on the #7 horse again this time. Improbable has disappointed me over and over. With his slow workout recently, he looks like a tired and overbet horse.

Talk about vindication.

That Derby will always be a what-might-have-been for him.
