War of Will did it.

I cant believe mine floated up to 6/1. Not a bad hit at all. Glad I stayed out of the exotics though ... I truly don't think I would have hit that 10 and 5 behind him.

Felt bad for Bodexpress. But no one was hurt, so that's always a relief.
If only Tyler would have ridden the same race in the Derby. All the drama could have been avoided...

I feel even worse for Bodexpress knowing that even without a jockey he couldn't keep up with the field :?

War of Will sure is a gutsy horse! You would think the Louisiana and Kentucky Derbies would sour him completely but he just keeps fighting on!

I'll make my pick for the Belmont Stakes after that race has been run.

Then at least I'll have a 50/50 chance of getting it right :?: ;)

I agree. It was nice to see a horse than ran the Fairgrounds preps win the Preakness.

So any predictions on what shocking thing is gonna happen in the Belmont? This is turning out to be an unforgettable triple crown season!

Wayne Lukas won't find another hopeless nag to enter the race? Would indeed be shocking!

War of Will is a big, athletic, beautiful horse and how strange to see a son of War Front out of a Sadler's Wells mare win a major dirt race but I am okay with it! I am very glad that Bodexpress didn't injure himself or others during or after the race.

Well, Vegas is offering a Derby/Preakness proposition bet on the Belmont.

894-1 that the winning horse will

(1) be disqualified and taken down ...

AND

(2) that a jockey will be thrown from a horse within moments of the starting gates opening.


Both things must happen, apparently, in order for you to win.


(I think they should be more specific on that "within moments" thing. Like, say, within 50 feet 'of the starting gate.

I mean, exactly how much time is "within moments"?)


I'm going to go ahead and put $10 on that. $10 to win $8,940? Sure. Why not?


I wonder if they're going to have a prop bet on an Ice Age-type meteor striking Earth the moment the winning horse crosses the finish line?

They say you can bet on anything in Vegas. Apparently, they're right.

So i guess drifting all over the track on the turn is not acceptable in the derby, but perfectly acceptable in the straight of the Preakness is? :lol:

I agree. Though he ran well, kept his distance. Just wanted to go with the field. The only time I felt it became dangerous was when the rider begun to chase him in the stretch. Seems a clever horse.

Each state has its own set of racing rules though not sure what horse you are referring to that drifted all over the track.

He didn't wipe out 4 other horses either.
