Just about 15 minutes to post time. My favorite is Pants on Fire as I am rooting for the female jockey, Rosie Napravnik, to kick some a-- and with the triple crown. Saw a good video piece on her on the Weather Channel of all places and she seems determined and capable. The horse is another matter but everyone once in a while just as in car racing, it's not the machine but the driver that makes it happen.

Your favorite?

Yep we could use some history today of the happy kind. Would be huge!

Congratulations to Wild Kingdom and jockey John Velazquez. A good race and a good finish. Thankfully the injury to Comma to the Top was not career ending or life threatening. Sadly my picked fell all the way back to ninth on the home stretch after being in the front 4 for most of the race. Good luck to Rosie and I hope we see her back again next year.

I never knew there was an Irish runner in the race. The great Aidan O'Brien really needs to have more winners outside of Europe, been a long time since he has had one.
