Yeah, the Belmont is the grave yard for all great race horses. Many horses have won both the Derby and the Preakness but failed at Belmont...we'll see

Yeah, I agree with the "urging" there was a little too much and I didn't like that :/

Wow, I finally got to watch it. Man 3rd, 4th and 5th were soooo close! Rosie is going to get it sooner or later! It was so hard to keep up with so many horses in the field and all that mud. Can't wait till the preakness to see how it all shakes out:)

Kc .. yes, I find it harder to keep track of the horses when everyone is that lovely MUD color ...

OMG!!!! According to Ron Mitchell of, trainer Todd Pletcher may not enter any of his five Derby thoroughbreds in the Preakness this year—a list that includes pre-race favorites Revolutionary and Verrazano

Is 'Governor Charlie' going to run in the Preakness? I watched him win the Sunland Derby this year. (If he races, I hope he wins)

A lot of the horses that placed right after Orb are missing the Preakness and going straight to the Belmont. So fresh horses at the Belmont if Orb even stays sound and wins the preakness.

Belmont is the graveyard for the horses but that's what make the horse something special when they when all three races.

Is there a question of Orb's soundness?? I admit, I've not followed him, but it keeps coming up ..

There is no question of Orbs soundness, i'm just saying something can always happen to cause a horse to be unsound. For instance last year with I'll Have Another missing the Belmont because of tendonitis..which I feel like there was more going on there....
