LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Reddam Racing's I'll Have Another provided a 15-1 upset of Kentucky Derby 138 on Saturday when running down pacesetter Bodemeister before a record crowd of 165,307 to score on the wire at Churchill Downs.

The Doug O'Neill trainee provided jockey Mario Gutierrez with his first Derby winner in his first try when finishing 1 1/4 miles on the fast main track in 2:01 4/5.

AT the top of the stretch, I thought Bodemeister absolutely had it. I saw I’ll Have Another closing fast, but didn’t think there was enough track.

A good race. Like most, the last dash everything changed. But, like most, the 90 minutes of programming previous to the race was a horse-dip marathon.

Sounds like it was a good race - sorry I missed it. Always does my heart good to see a long shot come in. It redeems many of the mediocrities among us.

I can’t find the total official results anywhere. I watched the race, but cannot find the results online.

It was, I was watching Fox new about 90 minutes before the race and there was nothing that interested me, so I began clicking the remote until I reached NBC News

Most of the hats were awful this year. Most of those women had no idea how to wear a hat. The best hat was on the woman who sang the Star Spangled Banner. She had it all pulled together, complete with matching red gloves.

That reminded me that it used to be a fashion “law” that you never wore a hat without gloves. If it was too hot to wear gloves, you carried them — but the gloves had to be there. When was the last time you saw that?

I don’t know who fitted Steffy Graf with her hat. Totally the wrong color on her. It made her skin look like mud.

I did catch a glimpse of one of the owner’s, or breeder’s wives sitting there — a brunette — wearing a royal blue dress and a hat with blue and yellow flowers on it. That looked grand.

My wife was watching TV - I tried to find it streaming online but could not.

Will try again next year. I used to watch all the Triple Crown races religiously with my late father. He was, among other things, an equestrian. He had an 18 acre farm in Burtonsville, MD where he kept and bred Morgans. A lot of lore was lost when he died, we preserve what we can.

Bodemeister ran pretty easy the whole way. He didn’t seem to be really trying so much. Unfortunately, when it came time to sprint, the jockey couldn’t get it out of him. You saw early how hard Trinniberg was running just to keep pace with Bodemeister.

I liked Dullahan myself and I think in a less crowded field he would have won. He’s a hell of a sprinter.

I have been to the Derby a few times, and even visited
Secretariat at his stall (I recently saw the movie on TV), and race horses breeding, all back in my younger playboy days.
I have not seen a derby, even on TV, in over ten years.
Now it is all water over the dam, as I spend twilight on my beach.

Steffi’s hat was an abomination as was one of the reporterette’s who was wearing a black and white monstrosity!
Then there was that gal wearing a WAY TOO BIG red hat that was basically a saucer on her head. No thought to coordination with the outfit other than color.<p.
Mrs p6 was going off the deep end looking at them, LOL!

I’ll second that. Now, if anyone can explain to me what, exactly, is the point of forcing a bunch of horses to run around a track, thats something I’d be interested in hearing.

As a kid I was at the Derby and ran into Howard Cosell. He was wearing a pink tuxedo.

Bodemeister was trying to the wire to wire but if you watch the "I'll Have Another" jockey was pulling him up until they made the last turn. I saw a couple of horses that could have done much better but they got tangled up in traffic.

Want to make some money at the track?
Always bet on the sorrel horse.

It's a milestone of the year, a marker on our lives. You can pass them by and not notice or care, but they are still there.

The ice broke a couple of weeks ago on the Tenana river in Nenana Alaska. The Nenana Ice Classic draws interest from around the world. One guy won over a quarter of a million bucks. Last year there were 22 winners. Who cares?

The money isn't important. When the ice breaks there you know the Bad of the Year is gone. That is what is important.

So are the fire festivals in northern Europe, Burn's Night, Daytona, The Masters, The Triple Crown, Indy ...on and on and on.

Don't spoil it for those of us who do mark the passing of the milestones.

HAHAHAHA! YUP!

Unless you live in W PA and follow harness racing, especially at The Meadows. Then bet on the jockey, the trainer and most importantly who is having a bad year, LOL!

The owners seem to take care of each other.

Also NEVER bet on the morning favorite. Go a couple deep or become a place bettor.

Like I would know. I only do it for fun!

Doubtful. Secretariat’s success was as much a product of his enormous heart as anything else. Race horses generally have larger hearts, but his was huge. To match him, a horse would need to have good thoroughbred bloodlines AND an enormous heart.

That was a fun Derby, with a nice story...the horse coming masterfully from behind, was bought for $11,000, trained by a guy laying phone lines on the side to make ends meet, ridden by an unknown minor league jockey from nowhere.

The one with the pink hat and black and white polka dot dress...that was....ummm...oh shoot I can’t recall now...a wife of one of the trainers...owners? Older gal...from that angle it looks bad but from the eye level camera shot I though she looked OK for her age.

Those are all OK, except for the one with the doll and the one with the blue feather and multicolor polka dots.

I know that they are big and flamboyant, but at least they go with the outfits. The ones on the women who were being interviewed on TV were just stupid. One of the women let slip that “they gave me the hat to wear” which shows me that she hadn’t put much thought into it.

I think IHA actually understands the concept of racing. I was watching his youtube of being sold for 11K, and even then he was sharp, authoritative and above the crowd - of people, not the other horses.

When the reporter asked Steffi about her hat she had to stop and think and then said it was designed for her by so-and-so. I hope she didn't spend more than a buck 2-80 on it!

Mrs p6's hat - that she put together from a nice springtime white hat and parts from the freaking craft/fabric store - SMOKES Steffi's! It's in it's second year, LOL!

For the Derby, always go with Family 23. I’ll Have Another and Dullahan are 23’s. Next best way is best female line that is not 23. Went The Day Well is from the female family of Secretariat. I always give my friends 3 names to bet. most years they win. I had I’ll Have Another, Dullahan and Went The Day Well. My son didn’t bet this year because I blew it last year. Boy needs to remember Mama knows these things-LOL.

I - fun only this year - picked I'll Have Another but I have to admit I was a little put off by the smallness of the neck. Usually I like a horse with a thicker neck for breathing.

Our 4 YO grandson - we start 'em young - picked Bodemeister and Take Charge Indy. Had me worried for a while, LOL!

This is a good one. I hope she wore it with a black, or a white, dress, although black with white polka dots would work too. That is stunning and better than anything they showed on TV.
