Dutrow now is saying he will not bet on his horse because he doesn't want to bring bad karma and the derby is big enough. What a about face he just pulled off. Ya he's wimping out I wonder why.

Has anyone else had trouble with their NYRA on line account today? The site doesn't seem to be able to handle the traffic. Figures the biggest day of betting the NYRA can't handle it.

Slow, but functional. Wouldn't wait until the last minute to bet the Derby though.

That's just ignorant. Plain and simple.

It's no more ignorant than running a horse in a spot they're not ready for and asking them to do too much at this point in their career.

But, hey, it's DERBY FEVER! As horseplayers, I forget that we just have to look the other way and say, "It's just part of the game".

Sometimes I wonder why I follow this sport...

"It's no more ignorant than running a horse in a spot they're not ready for and asking them to do too much at this point in their career."

That describes all 20 horses that ran yesterday. No 3yo is physically developed at this point where that race is ideal for them, which is why so many won't make it to the summer if they can be retired.

Don't just go running your mouth because you didn't think the filly belonged - she proved she had more business being there than most of the field.
