While I always hope for a Triple Crown winner, I could not help but pull for the filly Rachel Alexandra... my youngest daughter is named Alexandra.  WHAT A SURPRISE... happy and sad at the same time.

After watching the Oaks and knowing the same jockey would be riding her, I knew Rachel Alexander was going to win the Preakness. After watching that race I'm not sure who's going to win the Belmont. It's going to depend on the jockey. Had Mind That Bird had the right jockey, he could have won the Preakness.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

You are absolutely correct... the jockey lost that race for Mind That Bird, horse had "it", jockey was late, very late, on calling for the speed.
