Anyone else watch the race?
The winner was California Chrome
There is a great story behind this winner
Two old guys bought a dam for breeding and decided to call themselves "Dumb Ass Partners".
Here is the story
At the end of the article, the horses trainer, Art Sherman (77 years old) said;
"This has all come quickly and unexpectedly to a racetrack lifer, who has seen almost all there is to see but who now finds himself staring down something altogether new. "In our business this just doesn't happen," says Sherman. "The whole story is ridiculous. It doesn't make any sense at all."Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

A little black greyhound that I had so many years ago, Tiny, was a real racer. We went to a greyhound gathering in Kanab, Utah, where the retired racers could run for fun. An off duty Utah state trooper had a radar gun. Tiny clocked 38 mph at the age of 10 with a heart condition. I heard that she was kicked off the track for looking too aggressively while running a race (she didn't hurt another dog). She wasn't much bigger than a whippet, only 43 pounds racing against some of the big males at 80+ pounds, but that dog had heart.
Congrats California Chrome from the long ago Tiny dog. Darned, I loved that dog.
