Horse racing? Really? Talk about an elitist sport with no redeeming value. What's next? An article about today's prices for monocles and top hats? An expose on the latest in fox hunting? Who's the latest smash at the fencing tournament?

Its redeeming value is in its history, tradition and mystique.

Why bother commenting if you are so disdainful?

Where does it say one can only have a positive opinion on any issue ?
You seem to plead for censorship.

BTW, a random act of kindness would be to stop horse torture like this. You might change the world.

Why don't you save your outrage for a sport that REALLY deserves it like Bull Fighting?

Thank goodness we don't do that here--legally, anyway. Not only does the poor bull end up dead, but also the picadors' horses get so badly gored or sustain so much damage to their internal organs from the battering they get from the bull that they have to be shot. And yet I was so enthralled by Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon that I reread it several times. To this day, I cannot fathom why.

I saw *I'll Have Another in Canada and he had a twinkle in his eye. I just bet him in Reno and won $600! What a horse!

Republicans -this is why we can't have nice things
11:32 PM on 05/05/2012
Perhaps the second coming of Seabiscuit as we are exiting another Republican economic debacle like we did in the 1930's. Yes, "I'll Have Another" as in another 4 year term for President Obama.

The Derby wouldn't go over big in Brussels.
When they want their pound of flesh, it's horse.
They like to pony up for tasty horseburgers with a little horseradish for seasoning.
Yummy.

Cool race. Always great to have an underdog win. Not to quibble or anything but I'll Have Another was sold for $35,000, not $11,000. Still a very cheap price for a truly phenomenal horse.

Well here we have the 1% in their finest. The people have weird hats and too much money. Where was Mitt Robme? Oh he was at some Mexican restaurant eating Gorditas (only a true Hispanic will appreciate the what I just said).

I can see Mitt now campaigning in Texas at a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant owned by immigrants. The late night comics would have a field day with all those foot in mouth Romney quotes there!

Horses are so yesterday. It's more fun to gamble with people's pension funds, ask anyone on Wall Street.

They should call this the Cruelty Derby. How inane that humans breed horses to live in captivity to run their hearts out for two minutes so people can wear silly hats, bet and drink. Would it really be so terrible to just let them live their own lives with dignity?

Choice 2012...TweedleDee or Tweedledummer.
Both parties are giving Wall Street what they want. Social Security isn't broke but it will be if Obama's cuts to the payroll tax are not stopped. I can't believe I have to write that about the man who promised to end the Bush Tax Cuts on billionaires.

The GOP should have been outlawed like the MuslimBrotherhood for having committed treason too many times, for pandering to the Judeochristian Taliban, and for consistently running the worsthypocrites.

WE NEED A THIRD PARTY and MrFineman is a disservice to journalism. I remember when he was promoting the falsehood that W was a born again xtian. W couldn't quote chapter and verse from the bibleif his life depended upon it.

Except that one party passed Dodd-Frank and the other tried to stop it. It is a false-equivalence that both parties are the same enough to warrant no choice between them.

If I bet $20 on each horse would I come out ahead?

No. It would have cost you $400 to bet $20.00 on all 20 horses to win and you would have received $326.00 on the winning ticket.
