Huge Pontiac Ballbuster blowing through traffic on the expressway. The journalist is driving, ignoring his passenger who is now nearly naked after taking off most of his clothing, which he holds out the window, trying to wind-wash the Mace out of it. His eyes are bright red and his face and chest are soaked with the beer he’s been using to rinse the awful chemical off his flesh. The front of his woolen trousers is soaked with vomit; his body is racked with fits of coughing and wild choking sobs. The journalist rams the big car through traffic and into a spot in front of the terminal, then he reaches over to open the door on the passenger’s side and shoves the Englishman out, snarling: “Bug off, you worthless faggot! You twisted pigkisser! [Crazed laughter.] If I weren’t sick I’d kick your ass all the way to Bowling Green — you scumsucking foreign geek. Mace is too good for you …. We can do without your kind in Kentucky.”

In 1970, Thompson wrote an article entitled "The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved" for the short-lived new journalism magazine Scanlan's Monthly.  Thompson's article virtually ignored the race, focusing instead on the drunken revelry surrounding the annual event in his hometown.

Embarrassed glad you spotted that Kav, i got ballsed up with island falcon, understandable considering the similarity with the names crown pride and island falcon (yeaaaaaaah right), at least it wasn't second chance who spotted it lol
i read something about crown pride,and damian lane provided the aussie connection there, ( i think that island falcon and crown pride raced at the same meet in dubai), and then the old brain fade i think, anyway i am sticking with crown pride (minus anamoe obviously lol) and lynch's horse, they dropped damian and christoph lemaire is riding it, julien leparoux is riding classic causeway they say in the blurb he (leparousx has had 187 starts this season for 187 wins? 
confused? yes i am lol


Julien Leparoux

Kentucky Derby horse: Classic Causeway

The scoop: Leparoux enters the Derby with 13 appearances including a seventh-place finish last year with Helium as well as finishing sixth in 2020 aboard Storm the Court. His best finish in the Derby was in 2017 when he came in fourth aboard Classic Empire. He also rode Master Fencer to a sixth-place finish in the 2019 Derby, as well. The Frenchman has made 187 starts in 2022 with 187 wins.

The Los Angeles Times previously had reported last October that Baffert had 75 horses die since 2000, either by racing, training, illness or in non-exercise accidents.

Thats an aweful lot of horses in less than 2 years .  How would we all be talking if Waller came up with numbers like that ???

Gee, Shammy was stiff but I love to see an outsider win, especially when they make the field at the last minute! What a ride too Thumbs Up Thanks PT Big smile
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

famous guy there bet the house on Epicenter to win and is claiming Rich Strike cheated and race was “rigged.” Says Mike Pence or SCOTUS can intervene and overturn result if they have “courage to be real Americans.”

Comment I saw on WaPo.

What a ride and what a run.  Great back story too. Bought in a claimer for $30 thousand.  Jockey I bet none of us have ever heard of.
Heard them say they lost 23 horses and all their gear and trophies in a barn fire. Tragic.
Still cant get over the run and see him after ?  Spent most of the time on the way back trying to bite the lead pony.  Dunno why they didnt just let him go back on his own. He obviously wanted to celebrate in his own way.  LOL
I bet there was more than 156 thousand there  !!!  See that crowd !!!!LOLCry Imagine being in it.  Or getting away after .  No one can drive to the track.  Only the Govenor etc.  You have to park miles away and bus or walk in. 
What a great story .
