Waianae, HI

Its called getting beat. Its called off the pace and out of the pack and America loves it.

We love the underdog with a chance. We love 5'5" pro basketball guards.

Getting best does not make you a loser by the way. Not trying makes you a loser. Starting and finishing in the order in which you are supposed to makes you a loser. If the person who was supposed to win, won all the time there would be no point in the contest.

If the trainer did the misdeed and got caught then he has to do his suspend time, just the way it is.

The fact that we are saying success and for the jockey sudden success is unfair scares me a little. Is not the story of this Jockey that he started riding young and rode hard and then went to Canada and Rode some more. Didn't both he and the Horse win a Stakes Race in order to get to the Derby. As long as the Jockey is Legal I really don't care good for him.

I am looking forward to the Belmont Stakes. At least this horse is not a gilding.
