Preakness Day pt6: Postmortem

It's hard to see how this day was anything other than an unmitigated disaster for the Maryland Jockey Club. The infield was still fun, but empty compared to years past. At a time when there are more questions than ever about the future of the race in Maryland, that's the last thing they needed.

As for the race itself, I was wrong to write off Rachel Alexandra. Mine that Bird looks like a huge finisher with a great chance to take the Belmont.

I held my tongue all day, but I really don't care about preakness or horse racing. I don't like to see MD traditions die, but I just don't care about a "tradition" that involves a bunch of frat douches hurling beers at each other...

So, yeah, sorry that it sucked this year. and sorry something you loved is gone. i can't care.
