All i been hearing about today is horse racing and the horse named Big Brown who i guess won 2 major races and if he won today he would be a Triple Crown winner which i guess is big in horse racing and all i heard is how he is going to win and blah blah blah

Triple Crown winner? ya right...they guaranteed a win and he came in dead last

A little squeeze in the right place prior to the race makes all the difference...

Why do you think the bookmakers all have nice houses and drive expensive cars ?

hehe, theres the spirit of UPS for you (big brown is UPS' horse)... they had a big promotion thingie for him where they handed out buttons and stuff. good times

the belmont is a significantly different race than the other two. there is a reason there's only something like 11 TC winners in 140 years or so of racing...

Didn't Big Brown split his/her hoof in between races? Of course he wasn't going to win. I'm surprised he's still alive.

Yah he actually was injured, however he was cleared to go for the race. The reason he came in dead last is b/c the jockey pulled him down to a walk. He probably wasn't going to win, but he definitely wasn't going to get last either.
