NBC outdoes even its awful Olympics shows with an almost 5 hour TV pageant covering a 2 minute horse race. (Horses used to be large animals seen around America)

The 144th Kentucky Derby
NBC Sat, 5/05, 2:30 PM 4 hrs 45 min
"from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky."
Sports, Horse Events, Horse Racing
Justify, ridden by Mike Smith and trained by Bob Baffert, is the 3-1 morning-line favorite for the $2 million "Run for the Roses" featuring three-year-olds running 1 1/4 miles on dirt; Medelssohn, ridden by Ryan Moore, is the 5-1 second choice.

That's right...a Two Minute horse race


Horse- watch your step

Bring your rain gear if going.
  • It is expected to rain all day at Churchill Downs leading up to the Kentucky Derby.
  • The track could be muddy and as a result gamblers have started betting heavily on My Boy Jack, dropping him from 20/1 to 5/1 and the second favorite.
  • My Boy Jack is one horse with a proven track record on the mud having won the Southwest Stakes pulling away.

We will be parked in front of the tube for every minute.

Jerry Bailey, Randy Moss's love the sport and knowledge and are a treat to listen to.

A couple of great calls:

Monmouth Park race call.... 7th race on 8-22-10....

Don't know about five hours of coverage. The local stations all broadcast live from Churchill Downs this morning but moved on to regular programming.

It is a two minute horse race, but Louisville has been partying for two weeks starting with a massive fireworks show a parade, a boat race featuring the Belle of Louisville, a steam powered real paddle wheeler (the competitors have dummy paddle wheels), and large star studded parties last night and tonight. Friday was a day of racing featuring the Kentucky Oaks for fillies; Thursday has become The Thurby, the locals day at the track.

To bad about the rain as the outfits are a lot fun; colorful men's wear and ladies with expensive hats and Fascinators.
