And Furthermore...

- Funny that they were talking on ESPN before about how Dutrow likes to give his horses more time between races. A check of Formulator shows that, over the last five years, he's run horses 145 times with a week's race or less, with 33 winners (23%). Of those, 51 were running on three days rest or less (11 winners), and you may recall when he ran Golden Man on consecutive days in 2005.

Here's one lesson that I guess didn't get learned from the Derby. Track announcer Dave Rodman noted how fast the track seemed as Starforaday came within 2/5ths of the track record for six furlongs in the third.

Oh great....Goldberg is touting Racecar Rhapsody for second...

After four races, Bailey and Randy Moss are commenting on how fair the track seems. Bailey said that every part of the racetrack seems equally good.

And Jerry Bailey can't seem to stop calling Big Brown "Barbaro."

Ugh.

I thought I recalled that Golden Man was trained by Dutrow.

I'm enjoying Randy Moss, but everyone else is a little cringeworthy so far -- still, it's a far cry from what I anticipate from NBC later.

Don't you have anything better to do then get on Dutrows case. Perhaps you should be concentrating on your hunch bets or your quick picks or your nice try plays::::::::::: yea a check of Formulator shows that your win% of hunch plays or however you want to phrase them SUCKS !!!!!!!! oh I'm sorry your losers are labeled as "nice tries"....just layoff the trainer who has an oppurtunity to do something not done in 30 years. He is what he is but, for now he deserves his credit and the game needs all the positives it can get these days.

You mean all the drug positives it can, 'cause Dutrow is a f'ing cheat who has pumped Big Brown full of Winstrol every month...but he has no clue what that steriod does...duh! Yea, it's legal in the states he has raced in, but that doesn't make it right. And good thing he's rushing off to stud 'cause next year he won't be able to use it.

Dutrow is a jerk and deserves every criticism he gets! That horse wins DESPITE his trainer, that's what makes him great (that, and any other chemical or natural enhancements he's on that haven't been detected yet).

Sounds like someone had a bad day at the office. Don't take it out on me dude, and what in this post was picking on Dutrow anyway?
