Derby Day

This Derby Day was more interesting than many have been, just because the field was so wide open. Today's entertainment, aside from the race itself, was watching the horses and deciding which were built properly for coping with the muddy track.

I was sorry to see Lionheart in second place -- he was far and away my favorite this year, although I had a very soft spot in my heart for Birdstone. Great race, overall. More excitement than I can remember since 1991...

I have way, way, way too much to do today (but my tummy is all better!).
