Congrats to Rachel Alexandra!

When Street Sense ran, I screamed at the TV. When Giacomo ran, I screamed at the TV. A few weeks ago with Mine that Bird, I screamed at the TV for the brief few moments it was clear he was going to win.

I am now completely hoarse after Rachel Alexandra in the Oaks and the Preakness. I really hope to see Mine that Bird and Rachel Alexandra race again. At the very end there, it was pretty awesome.

All I can say is, way to run like a girl!

I totally want a match race between them. I totally thought Mine That Bird had her!

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

If they both run the Belmont, my money's on Mine That Bird; he's a distance runner, would have probably had Rachel Alexandra in a few more strides.

HOWEVER - Rachel Alexandra is an amazing filly. Did you see the Kentucky Oaks race?

Mine That Bird's jockey from the Kentucky Derby...makes me angry. I don't remember his name, but he should've stuck with Bird. =/ That's my two cents.

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.

I agree with you on that.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
