Thinkin’ the weather manipulators did it on purpose. Rain delayed start of the Talladega thing ‘n the Derby  bell was right about the same time. Made for a busy back button on the remote. Damned if NBC can’t werk in five er six minutes werth of commercials as well as ESPN can.

It’s all George Bush’s fault.

The worst thing about the Derby is Bob Costa still gets a check from NBC


BTW thanks Slim...I watched it finally around 10 pm before I did the final security check here.

looks like Mestiza is the big winner with Oxbow.... Orb just could handled the pressure I guess. He made his break then hit the brakes

Oxbow  went wire to wire and looked amazingly fast, on what looked like a slow track
Mylute finished 3rd

“Walked the dog.”

Don’t think I’ve heard that since my father passed. Misted me up some.

Yep Gary Stevens sed that. I guess the old man show'd the youngster how to do it.




Told Montana at one point yesterday we were 6 commerical breaks from post time. They snuck an extra one in on me.

courtesey of e-ponies.com

11th - The Belmont Stakes (G1)

8-5 Orb (3-1)
3-1 Revolutionary (9-2)
6-1 Palace Malice (15-1)
8-1 Freedom Child (8-1)
8-1 Vyjack (20-1)
10-1 Oxbow (5-1)
10-1 Unlimited Budget (8-1)
10-1 Overanalyze (12-1)


Looks like Orb is the favorite for the final leg of the triple crown. You will see that several of these did not run in the Preakness. Giving them the extra time to rest and prep for the longest of the 3 races.

Didn't see the Belmont live Thank God for Tivo. Saw it last nite after the laundry done on the campin' trip.

Palace Malice ran a good one...mile & 1/2 would make anyone tired.

Article on the Virginia Derby. FWIW.

http://hamptonroads.com/2013/07/virginia-derby-pagentry-masks-tracks-struggles


One of the com mentor's said what the biggest issue is there. It's the accommodations. It's just as easy for me to fly home as it is to drive back to Richmond and find a place to stay. If you are a out of state trainer then there is no place to stay either. I loved taking horses there it was easy in and out, little security to contend with and I could be home at a decent hour.
