Who can argue with this?

It's refreshing to see somebody really want to win the Travers. Sometimes I think people just don't give a crap anymore, or they're too hell-bent on ruining horses in the Triple Crown to even think about having anything in August. I love seeing everyone so happy about the Travers for a change. Look at Javier! It's beautiful.

And screw it, I really like Bernardini. AND Barbaro! Why is this such a tough concept? I'm not going to let a bunch of fourteen year-olds on the Internet ruin my enjoyment of Bernardini. Empire Maker was different: he's by Unbridled, and his trainer and jockey were behaving like pompous douchebags. Okay, Darley's bloodstock agent once again made a boneheaded obnoxious comment ("What makes him special is his father is A.P. Indy"...yeah, him and about a thousand other horses; we get that you like yourself) but Albertrani and Castellano are awesome and have been so all week.

If Bernardini gets hurt tomorrow and has to sit out the fall, it's a tough call on 3YO of the year. If he does anything else even remotely competitive, he should get the prize. I love Barbaro, but I doubt anyone's going to forget about him just because he doesn't win an Eclipse. Michael Matz just wants him to live. Barbaro just wants to rip grass out of the ground.

I have my own photos to post, but it's time for Postmark: Katrina. I'll get around to it... sometime...
