    I'm late in replying to this - just saw the thread. A big congratulations to Giacomo and his rider! What a win. The Derby must be quite an event to be in attendance of - the hats, the excitement, the history, and, of course, the mint juleps!!

    The Kentucky Derby is the oldest continuous sporting event in the US, followed by the Westminister Dog Show.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker

    If anyone is curious, the unoffical standings were :

    Win:Barbaro
    Place:Bluegrass Cat
    Show:Steppenwolfer

    Barbaro just kept pulling away. Wow. I had a $5 bet each on Sinister Minister, Keyed Entry and Point Determined to win. Oh well. They were all in it for awhile.

    I was watching, Star!!! We were at my mom's for dinner, but interrupted dessert to all go watch it. I hope Barbaro goes all the way and wins the Triple Crown. Amazing story about the trainer and the plane crash.

    Wow, Barbaro just smoked the field. I wonder how close it would have been if Brother Derek didn't have traffic troubles?
