Happy that there is an African american jockey and a woman jockey! I also loved how they went back into the history and gave recognition that racing was once upon a time ago dominated by a.a's. My mood got a jumpstart! A favorite is Revolutionary and Orbs. People are cheering on Goldencents as well. I can't choose; haha.

Too bad about the rain though, bad track weather. That doesn't stop people from coming,clearly. This is awesome! One year, I am going to go. This completely alleviates the fact that I haven't been on a horse in a while. I may have to pay a visit to the Belmont Racetrack tomorrow (since it's twenty minutes away from me.) Loved the sport since my grandfather always had it on since I was little. He looooves the sport.

Up until this year I've had a job where I had to work on Saturdays, so I've never been able to watch live. I'm really excited today to be home and ready for the race! I always pick my Derby horses based on gut instinct. This year I was initially attracted to Revolutionary, but now I'm liking Vyjack as well. So if either of those two do anything more than jog behind the rest I'll be very pleased.

That's awesome Emily!

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

Oh, and I was really wrong about Goldencents! I'm happy for Orb though, he's the one for the Triple Crown! Maybe the Phipps family will win a Triple Crown after their missed opportunity with Secretariat.

orb got it. ready for belmont. Happy no one and no horse got hurt on that sloppy track. They said that only two horses had experience on that type of track; perhaps the outcome would have been different on dry turf.

Orb ran a nice race. I'm glad that nobody was hurt while running on the sloppy track.

Ride with us!

Wasn't he amazing, and such lovely expression on his face after he won. Looks like he's a lovely horse.
