I'm sure there was a party at the OTB a block from me! I watched the race on TV but didn't get off the couch to go see it on the big screen.

My 80 year old neighbor tried to talk me into walking up earlier today to place a bet but we didn't make it up there!!! Silly me! She picked the 1 and 2 horse but didn't want to walk in there herself to place a bet!

Just back from a "Derby Party" (no we don't live in Kentucky), just across the line in West Virginia. Most of the group at the party went to school with, etc the trainer of Smarty and it was quite a festive evening. I think it's time we had a triple crown winner!

Singing in the rain..........I'm singing in the rain.............cause Smarty Jones has me feeling no pain.

I had him across the board and what a run he had. A very nice payout for me indeed. It didn't take long for the kitchen folks to figure out what all that hootin' and hollerin' was about coming from the office.

Regards,
Thomas

wow, 7 wins in 7 races, what are the odds for that? That's the only reason I picked Lion Heart because I thought maybe his luck was running out. But shows that if he's determined there's no stopping him. He really came through at the end making up a lot of time.

To all those folks out there who are interested in some horse racing statistics:

As good as Smarty Jones was yesterday finishing so far ahead of the rest of the pack, had Secretariat been running in that field he would have beat Smarty Jones by 23 lengths!!!

Secretariat was a freak!

Thomas

Great race! I always get homesick when I hear My Old Kentucky Home. What a great sport.
