    Earlier today when it was being speculated the move to September 5th was a possibility, I canceled my AirBnB for April 29th - May 2nd for a full refund, booked for the new dates and saved $1,250. Best win I’ll probably ever have at Derby.

    It may be that a horse will be running for the Triple
    Crown that day.

    That's what I hope. Don't change the Preakness or Belmont and make the Derby an even bigger race than it already is. That would be awesome.

    The Derby might be the coming out party after the fight with the virus. Louisville will be ready to erupt. It cold be the most joyous Derby ever.

    To us people whom like the ponies and also party all Derby weekends are joyous. My only regret is I'm too old to fit in and enjoy the infield. 1963-78 were great years. Then I took a job in Pennsylvania and have only been there live once since then. The bright side is I'm only 70 minutes from Pimlico and have made the Preakness around 15 times.

    I had plans of finally vending the Derby this year since I didn't have other conflicts. I was really looking forward to it. Not sure I'll be able to now.
