Two hours of pre-race silliness? (the actual race is a little after 6pm correct?)

NBC really is Nothing But Commercials

/has the bourbon ready & the mint is steeping in the sugar solution right now
//hockey & mint juleps, that will be a new one for me (with about a 15 min pause to see some horses race around a track)

Nothing better than hours and days of speculation about who will win the race followed by a what, 2 minute horse race?

So a bunch of old white Southerners take [horses] and selectively breed them to be bigger and stronger, while systematically weeding out those who won't obey readily. Under the crack of a whip, these [horses] exert themselves for the comfort and amusement of a bunch of Colonel Sanders clones. If the [horses] stop performing well, they're sold off, made into "studs" or just killed.

And when someone questions the morality of putting [horses] through all of this, just for the benefit of a bunch of ultra-comfortable hedonists, people get mad. "Why, sonny! We've been doin' this kinda thing to [horses] since my grandpappy was knee-high to a rooster. It's tradition!"

You could substitute a couple of traits in that screed and have a perfectly formed argument against milk cows, or honestly just about any other breed of animal you like

Verrazano, Oxbow, Revolutionary.

I'm very intrigued by the fact that Gary Stephens has come out of retirement and is riding Oxbow. However, Verrazano likes to run.

Since I work on Saturdays, the last few years I have watched the race on NBCSports.com. However, this year they decided to limit the live streaming to certain providers that pay for the privilege. Apparently I am not one of the lucky customers.

I've actually bet on the Derby at an OTB. The people in the one I was at in Bay Ridge were interesting to say the least. Everything from bums, to hunched over old guys who looked like they smoked three packs a day all their lives, to drunk people, to guidos in track suits.

/I would throw a little bit of money around on the long shots and exacta combinations just for the fun of it.

How can I not make a fake fark bet on a horse named after a Three Stooges short?  I'm guessing?  Maybe that's not the reason but it sure is mine!

And that's why horse racing is a fringe sport now. It's pretty much nothing more than something to bet on and that aspect of it permeates nearly every single facet of horse racing culture to the point where the announcers themselves are openly placing bets and nobody even questions it.

That's what it always was.  Same goes for boxing.  They went to the wayside with all the lotteries and casinos.

I think I remember a farker saying something about a friend reliably making money by watching horses run on slop days. I guess this is where that would pay off.

I'll admit that Im one of those people.  I would just go down to OTB with friends for the Triple Crown races and throw a few bucks around.  It gave me a few horses to root for.  If not for that I wouldn't know much about them.  I could do it down here in Florida as well as you can bet at Jai Alai, the dog track or other pari-mutuels.  Im not doing it this year because I don't have anyone where I live now that cares much about it.  For me it was fun to watch with friends and have a little wager on it.

I've read the "official" bourbon of the Derby is actually a whisky. Sacrilege, if true.
