The official Horse racing thread.

Would ya believe me if I said I remember Weld's last win in the Oaks with Blue Wind? Jesus, I'm old. Delighted for the geezer.
They brought it up a few times in the post race interviews.

Btw, anyone else think the Derby is the most over hyped race in the world?

Give me the Arc De Triomphe any day if we're staying flat, and there's no buzz at all compared to the Cheltenham big ones and the GN.

He's repeated it in his post race interview, this is the best Derby winner he's ever had. When you consider what he's done in his career.....
