Hey North!  An hour and a half doesn’t sound too bad.  Might make it feel more like an event.  Believe it or not, it’s a pain to try to bet on the derby if you live in Louisville.  They turned the off track facility into some sort of casino and try to force everyone to go to CD to bet now.  I have a buddy that’s always going on Oaks Day though and he’s nice enough to place some bets for me if I can’t make it, which is almost always anymore.

I’m having that feeling too that we might be due for a big upset this year.  I was just looking at some charts (looking for closers lol) and it’s been 7 years (Orb) since the winner wasn’t within a head of the lead by the quarter pole, if they weren’t already in first.

What Travers winner was named after a beer ad slogan?

 Four eventual KD winner co-owners each write a potential name for their colt on pieces of paper while dining and asked their waitress to draw one name out of a cowboy hat.

Sounds like about as good a method as any.

Non other than California Chrome!!

In regards to your beer question, Stay Thirsty was the obvious answer. Up here in Buffalo, NY we have West Coast IPA on some of the brew pubs. That one came to mind first.

I'm in Syracuse. I just learned today about

If a horse is described as having “chrome”, it means that the horse has many white markings. ... Get Stormy and Talismanic are both good examples of bay horses with chrome. These stallions have a big blaze and white on all four of their legs. All in all, "chrome" just means that
