The Pat Day After

We’re going to miss those Patch has only one eye and how ironic he drew the No. 20 post position stories.

Now the haters can switch from Todd Pletcher being 1-for-45 going into this year’s Run for the Roses to Steve Asmussen being 0-for-18 going into the next one, which currently ranks him No. 1 in that particular category.

Speaking of Asmussen, seeing him next to celebrity paddock judge Jeff Bridges feel free to write your own Big Lebowski joke

Baffert may have not been in the race, but you know he took a lot of satisfaction in the first two finishers being sired by Bodemeister and Lookin At Lucky, not to mention winning the Oaks the day before with Winning Colors … err Abel Tasman.

Can’t wait to ride the new Thunder Snow Experience at Magic Mountain

For the 5th straight year, not only did the favorite deliver, but the horse came into the race having won all three of their starts on the season.

The only thing more anti-climactic than having a race at Churchill Downs after the Derby is having two.

NBC Derby ratings spike/Jerry Bailey’s sudden hair spurt – a coincidence?
