Will 'Get Mad' Get In?



LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Don't Get Mad used a powerful sweeping move to surge to a seven-length win over 24-1 long shot Gallardo on Saturday in the $113,100 Derby Trial at Churchill Downs.

The victory leaves B. Wayne Hughes with two legitimate Kentucky Derby contenders -- Don't Get Mad and Illinois Derby winner Greeley's Galaxy.

Hughes nominated Don't Get Mad for the Triple Crown and said if the colt won the Trial, he'd consider running him in next Saturday's Derby. Greeley's Galaxy would be a supplemental entry if Hughes pays a $200,000 fee.

Kentucky Derby contender Consolidator was retired Monday because of a fractured bone in his right front ankle.

The San Felipe Stakes winner galloped Sunday and took some bad steps coming off the Churchill Downs track, where the Derby will be run this Saturday.

"These type of things always seem to happen," trainer D. Wayne Lukas said. "You just hope it doesn't happen to you."

George Steinbrenner isn't the only New York Yankee with a horse in a major stakes race at Churchill Downs this weekend.

The Yankees owner will try to win his first Kentucky Derby on Saturday with Bellamy Road. Yankees manager Joe Torre is part owner of Sis City in the $559,400 Kentucky Oaks on Friday for 3-year-old fillies.

Man, usually every night when I get home from work I put on ESPN's PTI. But yesterday I turned on ESPN and they were selecting the placement of the horses for the derby. I never knew they did that, it was like the NFL draft!

I wonder how much that affects the odds?

I dont know but after each selection, they'd interview them and they'd say what their strategy was. Alot if it was the spots where former winners have won from. I would think the most inside position would be the best to start from but I know nathan about horse racing.


I do watch the big three races and occassionally enjoy a night at the local track to throw away some denero, but thats about it.

Joe Torre's filly struggled as much as his team has lately in Friday's Kentucky Oaks.

Sis City, the 3-5 favorite who's owned by a group that includes the New York Yankees manager, finished fourth to Summerly in the Grade 1, $500,000-added race for 3-year-old fillies run the day before the Kentucky Derby.

Even though he's won the Kentucky Derby, a question still lingers for Giacomo: Was his Derby win at 50-1 odds a fluke or a first step on the way to the Triple Crown?

The answer comes in Saturday's Preakness Stakes, when Giacomo takes on 13 rivals in what shapes up as a wide-open race.


I'm thinking that Giacomo won't deliver. My reasoning? the law of averages. There have been many horses recently who have won the first two races of the triple crown, so it figures that there will be some that don't win the Preakness. And he is apparently not that impressiive, so he won't win.
