Just Jogging

I went out for a jog this morning. No one wanted to take a picture of me.

Things are a little different out at Pimlico. Especially if you win the Kentucky Derby.

I’ll Have Another, still basking in the glow of an unexpected win on Saturday in Louisville, took to the Pimlico track this morning for the first time. Jack Sisterson, assistant trainer for the Derby winner, dropped phrases like “fantastic time” and “like he never run at all”  throughout a makeshift interview session after the morning jog.

Just a nice morning jog

Doug O’Neill, trainer of the horse, will arrive tomorrow and we hear he’s a character. Team O’Neill – as they like to call themselves – even has a miniature jockey outside of their barn. The Derby winning horse isn’t staying in stall 40. Heck, it’s not even with the majority of Preakness horses. These are the luxuries you can enjoy if you arrive a week before everyone else does.

The morning-line headline from Pimlico reads like this: the field keeps getting to Baltimore earlier and top-level competition fills the prospected field for the second jewel of the Triple Crown. These are absolutely interesting times for horse racing – and we still have a week and a half to go.
