When I opened up the live feed they were showing a horse touching the water tape in slow motion. My heart sank a little thinking they were just re-showing team finals. :)

Who is in everyone's Top 3 today??

They're walking the course right now, and from what the on-site announcers are saying, the B course is maximum height and spread. That will certainly favor Cumano. (But I'll be rooting for Rolette, Hickstead & Authentic, too)(Oh, and Corlato) (Yeah, I like Opium and O'Brien a lot too.)

OK. Let's face it, any of the horses that have gotten this far are worthy of a ton of cheering. I always root for everybody, even if I have my favorites.

Watching Ludger's round, I'm going to go out on a limb and say at least 2 double clears. But with 4 and a clear, Ludger could finish a lot higher than he is now. He just has to wait and see where he ends up.

Oh, darn, Gerco was going beautifully, then it fell apart.

Tough course.
