Kentucky Derby 2023
« on: May 06, 2023, 08:12:36 AM »
In the latest Derby disaster, the favorite, Forte has been scratched.

Fifth scratch of the week not counting the horse they had to shoot
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

I’ll never forget that.

50 Year Anniversary of Secretariat  Triple Crowns. His records still stand .

How time flies, seems like this happened yesterday.

Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war.

Unbelievable it has been that long. I was only 9  years old but I remember the excitement surrounding Secretariat and the excitement each race provided. My parents loved the horses, especially the Derby, and it is a wonderful memory for me.

I've been to 5 Kentucky Derbys, the last in 1989. Your daughter is presumably on the Infield, which at her age, is where all the fun is. If on the Infield, she will likely go all day without even seeing a horse ( except on the hundreds of TVs that are out there). Great to be young.

Five horses scratched, including the favorite, and 7 horses dead at Churchill Downs in recent days.

What a sh!tshow.
