The Rise and Fall of Fantasy Derby?

My Derby Horse
This might be my second to last post ever.  I mean EVER.  Might do one more after Derby.  We'll see.  Here is what I know:

  • This year's version of Road to the Roses is awful.  Churchill Downs has stripped it down to a meaningless and boring exhibition.  Maybe it will be like it used to be next year?  I won't hold my breath.  
  • I'm sitting on 280 points and rank 23rd with my stable.  What does that mean?  I have no freakin' idea.
  • Many of you were shut out of setting a stable because the timeline to start one was short and it was a bit confusing this year.  I don't really think you are missing out on anything.
  • Please still contribute to Old Friends.  If we somehow still raise $100 that would be great.  
  • After Derby maybe we just e-mail/tweet how many points we earned and declare a winner that way? Whatever.  
  • Goldencents is my Derby horse.  I'm not even going to look at the Racing Form this year.  Boom.  
  • Let's go out on a great song, covered by great band, in front of a great audience.  Enjoy Derby.  


  1. Agree all around. Really disappointing effort from Churchill this year and one I just don't understand.

    I'm leaning towards Itsmyluckyday for Derby day; love his improvement this year and think he's eligible to move forward off that Florida Derby. But I also think Goldencents is being overlooked by a lot of people; that SA Derby run was quite good from start to finish.

    Should be a great race!
