    There would probably have been about 60 people for Metaboss if he'd gone as if he were in the Derby, most of us would have come. Stupid bone bruise.

    Ocho and Bolo belong on grass--even Ocho's trainer was very lukewarm and only said something earlier this week about it being 'where the connections want him.'

    Mine That Bird is one of my favorite race calls ever. Tom Durkin doesn't even SEE the mud-colored horse on the rail until he's opened up on the field.

    That was just dumb because while for all I know the portrayal of Riddle was fair (he was....opinionated) the BOOK spent plenty of time on War Admiral being small, brown (he was dark bay) and gutsy...

    Dortmund looks like a thinker. That's either good or gonna bite him in the butt. Saw on FB that they're going to saddle him in the walking path, not in the paddock, to try and minimize any...

    It's called the paddock (even though, yes, at SA it's more like a room) and they were pretty clearly schooling. He's tacked for work, not racing, so that's presumably his exercise rider up. I don't...

    I HATE his head. Hideously pig-eyed. He looks like "Casey" from one of the more dubious 1980s paperback edition covers of "The Black Stallion's Courage." If he runs his race, though, doesn't...
