    Derby 2021

    Must be a Covid year.
    No Derby thread from our resident expert Mel.

    Going with Midnight Bourbon...because why not. Have zero idea about any of the horses in the field.

    And...it gives me an (unneeded) excuse to open the Makers early.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I took Rock your World (5-1) and Highly Motivated (10-1). Longshot: Sainthood 50-1

    Seems like a pretty wide open field though and I had a tough time picking ...

    Fail.

    Baffert horses have been ridiculous. He seemed utterly shocked, which was awkward to watch how much he didn’t believe in the horse.

    Maybe should just bet on Baffert/Velasquez horses for the heck of it next time.

    I took the free money at great odds on Baffert’s horse. (I won’t mention the money I lost throwing Essential Quality into a few exactas).

    I am shocked to finding cheating in this sport. Think of the children! I demand that Medina Spirit be called before Congress to answer for these allegations.

    This wouldn't have happened if Mr. Ed was still around.

    Yep, Mr Ed didn’t horse around with stuff like that. He ruled with a firm hoof!

    I'm interested to hear from some of our horse race aficionados as to the Baffert doping issue. Do you think it happened? What's Baffert's reputation on such issues?
