KENTUCKY DERBY 2022
( 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 Odd... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY 2021
( 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 (Octobe... read more

KENTUCKY DERBY (2020)
( 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. "Art Collector,... read more

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

Interesting!The 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah ran the sixth-fastest Belmont Stakes ever, but if he was racing against Secretariat's record time in 1973, he would have been a distant second. Watch the two races side-by-side. Source: ... read more

( culture / sports / horseracing )

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 the horse could have been named Seabisquick. ... read more

HOLLYWOOD PARK, WHAT A RUN IT HAD
( 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. I... read more

from 1994The first Saturday in May. What does this date mean to you?

But ask any horse racing buff and they will tel... read more
