yes, I am dispointed in the lack of loltry of that jockey and if that filly had not entered the race we would most like be looking at a triple crown year.

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

No, acctually, I like Rachel Alexandra alot more. She is just more special to me. I also think that Calvin went with his heart and knew what was right to do, he is an amazing man and an amazing jockey.

I really don't think he was planning on even doing well in the Derby

I think you guys are forgetting the fact that calvin was contractually obligated to ride rachel alexandra in the preakness. He told the owners of mine that bird that if the filly were entered he would ride her. So don't blame mine that bird's loss on the jockey. Seeing the preakness- I think that smith and mine that bird could have beaten calvin and rachel if they had had another quarter mile

I didn't know that fact about Calvin and that makes sence to me. And you might me right about Mine that Bird on around fourlong or even 30 feet, might have been enough.

Yes, if Smith had had about another furlong, he might have taken it
