At long last it is Derby Week. Congratulations! You've made it. I know when Old Fashioned was your No. 1 for a long time and then he lost to Win Willy, you almost jumped off the Twin Bridges and into the Mohawk River.
But you remained firmly planted on the edge.
When Quality Road's feet got all cracked up like Humpty Dumpty, you thought that a vial of barbituates was the way to go.
But you left them with the track vet.
When Mafaaz mucked up his own Derby bed by running so poorly in the Blue Grass, you thought 'that's the last time we help the British!'
But you didn't because it was their greed that led to this great country.
