THE KENTUCKY DERBY: A GATEWAY TO IMMORTALITY
from 2024 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

The Kentucky Derby, often referred to as The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports, is not just a race; it's a tradition steeped in history. Since its inception in 1875, the Derby has become the first jewel in the coveted Triple Crown of horse racing, a feat achieved by only a select few of the finest thoroughbreds. The Run for... read more

Me: Who is the most likely winner of the upcoming Kentucky Derby?ChatGPT: At this time, it is difficult to predict the most likely winner of the upcoming Kentucky Derby as the race has not yet taken place.You don't say! Thanks for nothing! It can predict stocks but not horses?... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY 2022
from 2022 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Who You Got?The First Saturday in May is this weekend. Place your bets! I like 3, 12, 13, 6, in that order, but will probably hedge my bets (no pun intended) and play that as a four-way exacta box so it doesn't matter which order they finish.Post ? Horse ? Trainer ? Jockey ? Morning Line Odds1 ? Mo Donegal... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY 2021
from 2021 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Well, the First Saturday in May has come and gone, and all I can say is I am glad I could not get the online betting to work. I would have lost it all. I never let myself get out of control, but did have a $100 allowance. Online gambling has never been legal in Tennessee until late last year (October, 2020?), so I thought I might do a little ... read more

BREEDERS CUP 2020

HARNESS RACING LEGEND, BILLY DIRECT
from 2020 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

KENTUCKY DERBY (2020)
from 2020 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Thousand Words upset Honor A. P. in the Shared Belief Stakes on Saturday at Del Mar and got a Beyer Speed Figure of 104, all of which prompted Marty McGee of Daily Racing Form to cut his odds to 12-1 from last week's 50-1 on his line for the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5.

BELMONT STAKES TO BE RUN FIRST IN TRIPLE CROWN THIS YEAR
from 2020 in ( culture / sports / horseracing / triplecrown )

Horse racing fans will not be denied the Triple Crown this year, even though the order of races will be different. Instead of having the Kentucky Derby, which will take place on Sept. 5, kick off the Triple Crown schedule, the series will begin on Saturday with the 2020 Belmont Stakes. This year's race is shorter than usual, as ... read more

AMERICAN PHAROAH VS. SECRETARIAT, WHO WOULD WIN?
from 2015 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Interesting!The 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah ran the sixth-fastest Belmont Stakes ever, but if he was racing against en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretariat(horse)Secretariat 's record time in 1973, he would have been a distant second.

CALIFORNIA CHROME, A HORSE OF A UNITING COLOR
from 2014 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Here's hoping he wins! The race is tomorrow, Saturday, late afternoon Eastern time, usually on NBC. They have a 77-year-old trainer who thought his big-time days were over, and a jockey who grew up afraid of horses. They pulled California Chrome's name out of Coburn's cowboy hat. If not for the luck of the draw th... read more

HOLLYWOOD PARK, WHAT A RUN IT HAD
from 2013 in ( culture / sports / horseracing )

Today (December 22, 2013) is the last day of racing at Hollywood Park before it's torn down. It's sad, but that part of town has been the 'hood for several decades now, so it's no surprise no one wanted to go there. I worked there once, briefly, with the harness horses. It was back in the 80's, and it was not during a ra... read more
