    It was a pretty exciting race!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Eh, after going to a few races at Del Mar and watching horses come up lame and eventually put down, I just don't watch anymore. What a gut wrenching experience.

    My favorite horse tanked, but what a GREAT race! (Of course, when you choose a horse based on "pretty color" it is not surprising when no winning takes place. )

    Was the queen there? I just heard on the local news she was coming through my area. So I just figured she was going to the race also.

    I did read that the queen was going to the Kentucky Derby. That's all I know about the entire thing.

    Re: Today Is The Kentucky Derby!

    Street Sense ran an amazing race. From 19th to a long win. A horse with a lot of heart and a jockey with a lot of horse sense.

    Could we please have a Triple Crown?

    The Queen was there. She did not sing My Old Kentucky Home

    I was food for Storm in May, esp, after I found out she (he?) is blind in one eye.

    Re: Today Is The Kentucky Derby!

    It's nice to see that I'm not the only one here who loves horses.

    It looks like Hard Spun (Larry Jones) is going to take on Street Sense in the Preakness, some are saying we may have another Triple Crown contender in Street Sense.

    I'm still going with Hard Spun for the upset.

    Did I just say that?
