His owner said that’s how he always goes because of the missing right eye. But they will send him in for an evaluation just to be sure.

OMG 2020 continues to be the weird year! 
Talk about the lows and the highs in racing!!

Thousand Words spooks in the paddock, rears, slips and falls down. During this scuffle Jimmy Barnes is thrown to the ground and breaks his hand. Thousand Words is scratched for his safety.

Authentic takes to the track and is given a picture perfect ride by Johnny V to win the 146th Derby. 
Tiz the Law ran a great race to finish 2nd, but I think he dislikes the CD surface and as good a horse as he is he could not overcome that.

Honor AP was shuffled back at the start was 2nd last and was able to rally to finish 4th.

We witnessed a great Derby!! 
 

Just think a few months ago anyone could have paid $206 to own a small part in Authentic and they can now say that they own a Derby winner

After the race, the American Association of Equine Practitioners' on-call vet Dr. Kathleen Anderson issued the following update on Thousand Words: “The good news is the horse is absolutely fine. He did misbehave in the paddock and was scratched after he fell over sort of onto his side. He's returned to the stable area. Had a thorough examination by Dr. Kevin Dunlavy, his regular practitioner, and has been cleared for service with not a scratch upon him. So we're very pleased with that outcome.”

Glad to hear 1000 Words is ok: I was really worried about him

The problem is these horses have been working, schooling and racing Since March with no one around. The only people allowed in the barns, the paddock, winners circle Etc are 

the trainer, jockey, groom and maybe 1 more person. 
The Derby was run with owners, friends and a few others in attendance. This was a huge crowd compared to what the horses have seen lately. It is lucky Bob and all the people in the winners circle were not injured.
