Yesterday’s results may have been different if Essential Quality had a better post position inside more. I think he was 3 wide on the first turn and four on the second. That costs them energy for sure.

Oh well, maybe next year "Derby Bob" won't win the Derby ;-)  This  was his weak lineup year. I really didn't think Medina Spirit had much of a chance, then the rest of the field seemed to have all sorts of things go wrong. It was at least fun to read of MS's modest beginnings.

Agree.:). I think MS showed tons of heart, especially in the stretch! I wish him well as he continues his quest for the TC and beyond!

 Great article by Steve Haskin about the Cinderella story of Media Spirit and the woman who bought him for 1000.00
