I'm waiting for the video. Missed the race. I feel bad for Whitmore, but I am glad to hear that he muscled up to second after a bad break.  Do you think he had a chance of winning had that not happened?

 I think his break thru the gate and his little romp down the track took a bit out of him ( i know you are asking Derby) but that is what I think anyway. He did good considering----

A great race by Volatile, but the starting gate issues was just crazy!

First Whitmore breaks through the gate, then Lexitonian rears up and gets scratched. So the field is down to 4 runners.

Oh no! That's fine. Thanks for the info. I saw the video, but that does NOT include the "pre-romp" beforehand! I guess their could have been a different outcome of all that had not happened.

As well as he did he might have.  But Volatile ran faster the longer he went.  He is one very fast horse.

Well, I am happy that it could have been a different outcome. I  am always for the old guys or geldings, and when they are both? I  can't stop.

That said, I was happy for Somelikeithotbrown today in the Bernard Baruch though he isn't old or a gelding.  Nice to see a Big Brown baby do well, in spite of BB's icky trainer.

I would think Baffert is feeling pretty confident in Uncle Chuck to send him to the Travers.  Would love to be there to see Gamine.
