    It was a good race on a sloppy track. Last Derby I went to was 19 years ago...

    $40 to get into the infield, think Woodstock in the mud.

      I turned on the TV and started watching. The second I saw Orb, I said he's the winner.
      The only fly in the ointment was the family that owns Orb also was the first owner of Seabiscuit.
      They did everything they could to ruin that horse.
      I know, I know how wrong it is to blame the children for the crime of their fathers. I just love horses, and horse racing.
      That's why I was rooting for Normandy Invasion, he almost posted but came in 4th.
      I don't think there will be a Triple Crown winner this year though, because the track today was to muddy.
