Marian - I saw your post on the Horses We Like thread about the name - here is more info.....Camelot goes for the Triple Crown tomorrow morning 10:40 am (eastern) on both TVG & HRTV.

Magnier's wife, Sue, is the daughter of Vincent O'Brien, who trained Nijinsky. She names all the horses at the Ballydoyle yard where Nijinsky was trained, and registered Camelot – "a mythical name", as Aidan O'Brien, his trainer, put it this week – 10 years ago, to wait for a horse good enough to carry it.

When the son of Montjeu arrived at O'Brien's stable two years ago, they sensed that the right one had arrived. Montjeu himself died not long afterwards, leaving a gap at the Coolmore Stud which Camelot himself will eventually try to fill.

Charging up my phone so I can watch HRTV via iPhone while doing wellness visits for my two cats tomorrow and not miss Cameot's race.  I think 'll be home in time but this is a big deal.
