    Who is the horse from Japan who is supposed to challenge him?

    I tell you I love Elway! He was my hero growing up. I loved the way he threw the ball with velocity! I love that in a QB. This is why I am a Cutlerfan!!

    I personally want him to lose for a few reasons.

    1. His name is rather boring.
    2. His owners and trainers and stuff think that he's guaranteed to win.
    3. He's been doing 'roids. http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5...sCPD8hgDfiOmNw
    4. I like to see history stand. I've rooted against Barry Bonds, against the Patriots, and so on.

    This is the list of horses in the race. I'm pulling for Icabad Crane.

    Big Brown
    Guadalcanal
    Macho Again
    Denis of Cork
    Casino Drive
    Da' Tara
    Tale of Ekati
    Anak Nakal
    Ready's Echo
    Icabad Crane

    i want Big Brown to win but...

    They should keep the horses from racing for another year so their bones can fully develop and they get hurt less and not have to get put down. Most the horse owners want money and don't respect the animal just the prophet

    I personally will be rooting for Big Brown, despite the arrogance of his owners/trainers/jockey.

    I would like to see a Triple Crown Winner once in my lifetime, and Big Brown looks like he could pull it off.






    BTW, I have to admit, I am somewhat of a Thourghbred Horse Racing closet fan. It is generally enjoyed by the rich (I know, unless my lotto numbers hit, I'm never going to have more than just the viewing interests--remember, sport of the Kings), but I love horse racing. I love horses period, and someday, the Lord willing, I will own enough land and have enough money that I can buy one.


    GO BIG BROWN!!
    Personal goals: GOAL WEIGHT = 250lbs
    Weight loss needed for FGW = 120 lbs
    Weight lost so far: - 24 lbs

    How is any of that the horse or jockey's fault? Plus, records are made to be broken and streaks are made to fall. It'd be boring if no horse ever won the TC again. Go Big Brown!

    Here's the deal,

    Just make it about the horse.

    I'll watch it all day long.

    No more tricks.

    Level playing field.

    (Watch the horse from no-where start winning, and trust me....they are out there)

    Then it will be huge. (because it will no longer be about the elite)

    Casino Drive has been scratched from the race with a bruised hoof. If Big Brown wasn't already a mortal lock to win, he is now. Triple crown baby!

    The major arrogance of the owners, trainers, etc. of Big Brown resulted in epic failure. Kind of like the Patriots.

    Not to take anything away from Big Brown, of course, but this is the outcome I wanted.
