    It's an amazing spectacle. All the women are going for Pants On Fire, with Anna (Rosie) Napravnik on board. Raise a glass and hang on tight!

    I am. It's fun to see the hats and I'm enjoying a lot of the bio backgrounds on owners and jockeys. The Animal Planet series on jockeys about five years ago piqued my interest more than a reception at the "Museum of the Horse" outside Lexington.

    The amazing story about Kathy Ritvo and Mucho Macho Man is very inspiring.

    It's hard to decide who to cheer for. So many worthy contenders.

    If you haven't placed a bet, it doesn't matter much, although I'm rather fond of the horse with many owners.

    They're at the post! I don't like the Calvin Borel premium...but I really like him.

    What a surprise! And with a jockey who doesn't presumably know him well.
