RIP Astronomer. Euthanized after breaking down at the wire in a third-place finish at Fair Grounds on 2/17/14.
Good job, Laurie...The one thing I might question is track conditions. Did they hamper some of the horses in the Derby, but might not at Pimlico? Maybe...but we'll find out I guess....and then there is a fresh Departing comming to town. I hope Orb pulls it off.
Great write up, Ashley!
The picks seem to be a real indication of just how wide open thiis Derby really is!
Well said, Jody.
I find myself reading this story over and over. Wow!
Greatness. Pure greatness.
Rest in Peace, Marquetry. (January 30, 1987 - February 1, 2013) You will be missed, Old Friend.
