Yay Orb! I'll be going for Orb next time.

Of coarse tonight I had to re-watch the movie Secretariat for the 50th time, haha. Gotta love the best race horse of all time

Oh I love that movie! I'd watch it again, too, if I wasn't loaned out right now...

I am waiting to see if Orb is sound and has no problems after the Derby. He was so strong at the end of it, he should have a better than usual shot at the next two if he is 100% after this one. It would be really nice to have another Triple Crown winner.

Now two weeks until the Preakness. I thought the Derby was a pretty exciting race, but oh, so muddy!

WOW!! 2-length victory for Orb, he was so graceful through the whole race, Golden soul, basically followed his lead & poor Revolutionary.. Ugh he got right to the rail & shut out & boxed in. But wow, when he got his hole, he was a rocket right to third.
What a great race!!


Hope to see the triple crown staff passed on this year. Affirmed has held it far too long!

Now for the Preakness & Belmont.. OMG
I dont know what to think?!?

Still.. only the future will tell

Congratulations Orb!!! Seattle Slew & Secretariat will be proud of their blood making more history :)

I finally got a chance to watch it a few minutes ago. Dang, I sure love a horse who can close like that.

BUT, it looked to me he was starting to flag a bit at the end. I'm not going to hold my breath for a triple crown winner. I'd love to be proved wrong, but I've gotten my hopes up way too many times in the last few years.

I agree I hope he wins and I think its nice to see a horse with so little equipment on his head run. I just think Preakness is nice but at the same distances as the Derby, the real test is belmont that extra 1/4 makes all the difference. I did not care for how much "urging" was needed at the end. We have seen the past that are just a hand ride to victory.
