Wow! What a horse! What a race! I think there's a good chance that we will see a Triple Crown Winner again....finally. I don't know what the experts think of the field, because he was certainly the favorite. And only one horse from the Kentucky Derby was entered. Nevertheless, he floated across the track with what seemed like no effort.

There was a discussion of the tragedies we've seen, but it seems as if the only concrete change in the near future is the forbidding of steroids after the first of the year.

It was an awesome race, and I truly hope he can win the Triple Crown.

I am a bit afraid of Casion Drive, but keeping my fingers crossed that Big Brown will win regardless.....

It's been a long time since I've seen a horse blow by the competition like Big Brown does. It's phenomenal.

Here's hoping for another Triple Crown!

I thought he ran a fabulous race. When he was 3rd and made his move, the #1 and #2 horses were battling it out with all they had. I observed their heads nodding lower and more horizontal with their noses further out, indicating all out effort. Big Brown still had his nose tucked in with his face more vertical than extended, indicating he still had 'plenty of bottom' left. Also, at the run out, after the wire, his ears were up and not flopping back/forth like a tired horse.
I'd say he's definitely got the energy.
