I love the last line. Orb is the best horse to have won the derby in years. And he keeps getting better and better. Can't wait to hear the announcer yell ORRRRRBBBB!!!! two more times for the crown!
I like the idea of making it harder to get points. Also, good point about the 1/10 of 1%! In addition to making it harder to get points what if post positions were picked based on the horses rank? The horse with the most points gets to pick first and so on...
The Kentucky Derby should be the best of the best. Horses should have to win several races against other quality horses to have the opportunity to make it to the big dance. Maybe horses should have to earn their way into each leg of a Derby prep race? For example: The horses who make the Florida Derby have to have won or placed in a lower level Derby prep. Then the top two from each of the seven 100 point races make it to the Derby.
Love the way you ended the article Scott. Us horse geeks love to hear that! Go East!
