Happy Monday. Hope everyone had a good weekend... did you all watch the Kentucky Derby? I will freely admit that I am NOT a horse racing fan...yet the Derby gets me every year. I will watch the Derby, Preakness, and Belmont for the Triple Crown... the excitement of horse racing is embedded too deep in my bones to ignore it all year long. I understand there are a lot of you that just hate horse racing, and I as well despise certain aspects of it, but quite frankly, for three races a year, I don't think watching is such a bad thing.
In watching Super Saver win the Derby, and several replays of the race online both yesterday and this morning, I really think that it was a fluke that Super Saver won. The two best horses (or the ones that everyone thought were the best) got shut out early, and never had a chance. Sydney's Candy and Lookin At Lucky were bumped, shut off, and otherwise bullied into poor finishes. It surprises me that the side slam that Lookin At Lucky got before the first quarter pole is legal - but I guess it is.
At any rate, I don't think Super Saver has what it takes to win the Triple Crown - he may surprise us - but I seriously doubt he can. We'll see in 2 weeks though!
