Well the jockey and the trainer are both saying surface played a big part in Tiz’s loss. 
I know you were routing for Tiz he ran great!

The 4 legged boys came out of the Derby fine, the 2 legged ones didn’t fare as well.

What was the problem with the surface? Do you know?

I was crushed when Tiz did not get to the wire first! I adore the horse from the start of his career,with his noble presence, good looks,natural ability and coming from my home state for a change! I think on this day,Authentic was the best,but still believe that Tiz is more talented,,and either did not have enough time between races, and did not like the track! I  felt sorry for HonorAP who got stuck in the beginning and still managed to almost catch up and come in 4th. I 

look forward to seeing Tiz in the Breeders Cup after a deserved rest.

Yep, I hope they stick by that decision for TTL (to NOT go to Preakness). Sounded like there was "some" consideration of it, but I hope they just train him up to the Breeders Cup. I'm New York-based also, and this Derby outcome was heartbreaking for me. I just turned off the TV after the finish and moved on to some other activity.

Some big Beyer numbers on Derby Day!

 I think it was a combination of not liking the track and not enough time between 1 1/4 mile races. Nevertheless he ran a great race and I am looking forward to seeing him in the Breeders Cup: he is a majestic looking horse and I love him to pieces.

I love TTL too.  Jack Knowlton spouted off about going to the Preakness (I guess for retribution)  but I think he will calm down, with other clearer heads around him.  They should  just focus on going to the Breeders Cup with TTL.

I don't know how much to trust Beyer ratings, but Authentic received 105 for his win in the Kentucky Derby. TTL earned a 109 Beyer rating for his run in the Travers.

No one has explained to me yet about why TTL did not like the track at Churchill Downs. TTL has won at Belmont (a weird track), Saratoga, and Gulf Stream. What is so different about  Churchill Downs?
