BAHAHAHAHAHA at Donna Hamilton on WBAL's pre-race coverage.


After a blurb about Orb...




Donna Hamilton: Though there is someone missing from the infield this year.


Gerry Sandusky: And who is that?


DH: And that would be Kegasus. Did you know that?


GS: Kegasus no longer part of the program.


DH: Kegasus was like (neck-break noise) scraped off.


GS: Au revoir, Kegasus. You are not missed.


DH: Au revoir. I think that's really true, there were a lot of people--he had a lot of detractors that did not--


GS: Yes.


DH:--really care for his presence at Preakness. But, anyway, but the great music acts, really wonderful entertainment now on the infield, so, Lowell, I know that Ben Haggerty is performing right now, yes?


Lowell Melser: Ah...--


DH: Am I stumping you?


LM:--actually I think it's Macklemore and--Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, but--


DH: --(laughs)--


LM:--I told them to tell you we were--




LM: Yeah?


DH: Lowell, that's--


LM: Yeah--


DH: That's Macklemore's real name, is Ben Haggerty.


LM: (WTF face and beat of silence) Oh, is that right?


DH: Yeah.


LM: Oh, you know, I am so out of it.


DH: I'm sorry.


LM: I don't even know.


DH: (laughs)


LM: You know, I'm turning 40--


DH: Sorry.


LM: --um, in November, and I--


DH: Oh my gosh!


LM: --and all these pop, these music acts. I know, I know--


DH: Forty!


LM: It's terrible. It's a terrible thing.

Last night I found out Fifty Shades of Hay won the Black Eyed Susan. I'm still laughing.

All horses should be named after puns.

They just had one of the regular races, and the show horse was Notacatitsallama.

I know several people that are in the horse racing circle. It's pretty much common knowledge that Orb is the best horse that's come around in quite some time. Kind of like Barbaro a few years back. 


Orb is -125 on my sportsbook. While that clearly signifies him being a heavy favorite, it's really not that awful. Bet 500 to win 375.

Bad draw for Orb. Damned shame. I wonder if there will ever be another Triple Crown winner.
