  • zxswordxz · Jay, if he says that I won't disagree with him. But the guy keep making statement like " Jockey makes no difference in a race. They are just there for the ride" and many more stupid comments like that... · 432 days ago ·
  • jay s. · Can't argue with that. · 432 days ago ·
Is Animal Kingdom the same horse that won the 2011 Kentucky Derby? Is he on a downward spiral? Or, Did he simply just lose to an incredible horse who ran an incredible race?Read More

  • dani.pugh · Linkin, I did mention the layoff, and possibility of not being as sharp as POE. POE, also impressed me too, Mike. I thought at 9f he wouldn't be close to AK. Looks like it wasn't just the distance that helped last year. It might be possible he just simply turned the corner. · 433 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · ILuvTurfRacing, just to be sure I understand you right, are you saying that you believe the premature move had little effect on the outcome? This isn't a trick question, as I've only gotten deeply into turf the past year, I just wanted to know if I'm getting this the right way. Thanks · 434 days ago ·
  • zxswordxz · It amaze me how many people think AK could not win the race. I love AK and I think Johnny V as his pilot could have make a difference in the outcome or if Joel would have a bit more patient but I really don't blame Joel, it is first time on AK and I really don't think he knows AK strength and weakness like Johnny does. · 433 days ago ·

  • ARBY · AK must take it one race at a time. However, if he pulls off the GP Turf Classic, Dubai World Cup and Royal Ascot Prince of Wales trifecta there will be plenty of U.S. pride and buzz for this KY bred. · 436 days ago ·
  • On The Gallop's · Best of luck to the Derby winner. It will be a great race. · 436 days ago ·
I expect this to be one of the best races of 2013. My husband and I are using the excuse of house shopping to visit the track for the day :)
