I haven't even been keeping track. When is the derby? I don't generally follow racing but I do enjoy the triple crown (usually). I keep hoping that I will live long enough to see a triple crown winner but every year, it just seems more and more unlikely.

If the Derby was in November I would watch every one but it is in May and there is just too many things I would rather do. This year I am branding calves so I really won't miss the two hour ramp up to the minute and a half race. If there was nothing else to do then I would definately watch it.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

^^ That is why I love my DVR. I can watch it at night when I am relaxing and fast forward through all the people talking. I generally just like to watch the walk from the paddock to the gate and the race, the rest of it doesn't interest me much.

I picked Eight Belles two years ago as well. It was just as heartbreaking as Go For Wand and Barbaro. However, I don't want this to be a debate racing thread. I love watching the Derby and the triple crown races and keep hope alive year after year that I too will get to see a Triple Crown winner.

That being said, I still like Dublin..... I liked General Quarters story last year too- the high school principal. Makes me think I could have one in the Derby someday.

Statues??? Is this a horse racing thing? Could someone explain?

Okay - I think you mean his "stats" - as in statistics? A statue is the large likeness of something carved out of rock or formed from metal -- I think that is where the confusion was coming in for everyone reading your post.
