What a Derby. With no people, but a lot of connections, and still Baffert's "other" horse managed to flip quite magnificently in the paddock, breaking the assistant's arm. Then Authentic cleared the winner's circle pretty spectacularly, throwing Baffert tumbling down on his butt. As usual, what was reported was not what happened. They said Thousand Words flipped in his saddling stall hitting his head and shoulder, while what was on the SCREEN was him on the fence side of the walk ring, up over and down. But there is a significant concrete berm at the edge of the paving stone path and he thumped down pretty hard on that. He was shaky and looked a bit off after he got up and scratching him was the Right Call.

The Derby never fails deliver on 'Strange' but exciting. Looking forward though to the first day in May not September. I submit that Tiz the Law wins big on the orig Derby date. I would save him for the Breeder's Cup. Nothing to prove, already has a classic win.

On another Derby note --- has anyone been talking about the fact that Oaks and Derby handle were both down 50%? That is saying SOMETHING - but what? Any talk of purse cuts at Churchill or other tracks? Of course they'll unload Arl real quick now.

Wonder if that's considered a good nick on the enick/ truenick sites.

I'm sure it will be now, if it wasn't before.
