Better the fire upon thee roll,
Better the blade, the shot, the bowl,
Than crucifixion of the soul,
Maryland! My Maryland!

Five years ago I graduated college, drove to Maryland the next night, met up with the weirdly large contingent of my friends who attended Towson University, and celebrated my graduation at what ended up being the last Preakness where people were allowed to bring their own alcohol. I saw some crazy shiat that day, and I even remember some of it.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
The Union's full of farktwads.
We love our slaves, we love our slaves
Until we're held at gunpoint
We're Belgium in this Unpleasantness
Because we're next to the Federal mess
Oh Christmas Tree, in future schemes
We're just the template for nation-building.

Holy s**t, Orb's great-great grandfather is SECRETARIAT?! O.O

I gotta go with him. There is no other alternative.

And I'm an idiot who read "fast" as sloppy. Somehow. What's his record on a fast track?

I am at a horse show right now so I am getting a kick, ect....

I think Orb will pull this off but no triple crown this year, again. I wish I was at home so I can watch but this thread will have to do.

Previous 4 races prior to the Derby were on fast tracks.  All 1sts.

Just turned NBCs coverage on, so I missed that factoid. Yep, I'm sold. One Orb to go, please.

Got a huge chuckle out of USA Today yesterday. One of those 'why he can win/why he can't win' articles. They actually said for a couple horses under 'why he can't win'---"He's not as fast as others in this field" and "He doesn't want to run that far"

I'm not putting my money on Orb, but I hope he wins.
 
2013-05-18 06:16:56 PM
Dozed off a bit, woke up at Maryland my Maryland! Saddle up!

I want the triple crown chance with Orb, but also would like to see Mylute and the first female jockey winner.

Putting a dome over a track that's a mile around would be a bit of a challenge.

2013-05-18 06:23:05 PM
Damn it. Horse got boxed in.
 
2013-05-18 06:23:21 PM
Oxbow was my pick (no money though) in the Derby.
 
2013-05-18 06:24:04 PM
That was a pretty bad ride, I think, by Orb.

Well, it was the jockey's fault for getting boxed in like he did.  I don't buy what the announcer's saying about being in the right place.

He just pinned his ears and quit. Excellent strategy by everybody else.
 
2013-05-18 06:26:07 PM
Yep, Orb got boxed in, had to back off, and couldn't get back up to speed soon enough.

Should have tapped the horse in back, caused a spinout, and take the lead under the yellow.

/wait, wha?
 
2013-05-18 06:29:11 PM
Sorry Belmont. *sad trumpet* This is why the Preakness is the best race of the three. Triple Crown is always on the line.
 
2013-05-18 06:30:35 PM
Get that man a towel!
 
2013-05-18 06:32:12 PM
Well, that sucked. No chance for a Triple Crown this year. :-(

See you guys later!

To each his own. I wouldn't watch an NHL game unless someone told me the score was tied in the final minute of game 7 of a Stanley Cup Final, but these 3 races in spring (a close 2nd to my favorite time of the year behind summer) get my horsepower wound up.

I was at that one too (2008).  I only remember that day because of the pictures that I can and cannot post on Facebook (the NSFW were deleted with a computer crash).  Was a cross between Mardi Gras and a refugee camp.

Orb was staggering home at the Derby. Even if he had managed to win today, there is no way he could have handled the Belmont.
