Older Comments about the 2001 Kentucky Derby (G1)...

this race just gives me chills every time. definitely one of my favorite races. & an amazing call by Tom Durkin.
Going into this Derby you knew that it was going to be won by a deep closer as the projected early pace on paper appeared to be blistering. Monarchos was a logical win pick but most gratified by the Invisible Ink finish for second. This kicked off a series of second place bombs coming out of the Pletcher barn in Derby (Bluegrass Cat) and susequent BC races (Friendly Island)
