National League Early Reactions

We’re not quite a quarter of the way through the baseball season, but there’s been plenty to talk about so far. Both World Series teams from 2016 are currently not in first place in their division, everyone is hurt, and dirt bike riding is the new least favorite activity among people in San Francisco.

Kentucky Derby 2017 Preview: Another Year, Another Shot

It’s that time of year again when the best 3-year-old horses in the world get set to start their journey towards becoming the next Triple Crown champion. Last year was somewhat of a disappointment as we saw a different winner in all three races.

There is a case to be made for 8 of the 20 horses that will leave the starting post on Saturday. This race includes top horses Classic Empire, Irish War Cry (Wood Memorial Winner), Gormley (Sham Stakes & Santa Anita Derby Winner), Always Dreaming (Florida Derby Winner), McCraken (Sam Davis Stakes Winner), Irap (Blue Grass Stakes Winner), Gunnevera (Fountain of Youth Stakes Winner), and Girvin.  Although there are a lot of unknowns about Saturday’s race, one thing is for certain.  This should be one of the most exciting and competitive races we have seen in this race for the roses.
