The name of Desormeaux's ownership  just reminded me of this race, which Collmus called brilliantly, could have been an SNL skit

There were 2  horses in that race at Monmouth whose names were My Wife Knows Everything and The Wife Doesn't Know

And uncannily, in a 10-horse field, they ended up in a stretch duel together.   Collmus's call was hysterically clever.  I save some races that I will always go back to watch, not just Secretariat's Belmont, etc.   Every

I honestly think that’s the race call that helped Collmus land the job of calling the Kentucky Derby.

Michael Wrona has some good ones such as “staying like a mother -in-law” and “running like a teenage daughter with daddy’s credit card”.

I was thinking they needed a THIRD horse in this one.   So that the official race results could be this:
 

1st -  My Wife Knows Everything

3rd -  That's Why I'm Single
