I'm sure you weren't the last ones. I think almost all of my runners today finished behind you!!!

Haha could be! This is my dog at the starting gate:

He was a bit nervous seeing so many dogs around, almost all of them very excited and trying to make contact with him, which he would rather avoid! I think he was the only sighthound there, but his humans were not as fast as he is ;)

Congratulations Lewis for Gaudy Night's win!

We have almost a full field - 13 horses - entered in Final Furlong's Grand National! Among them NCh. Gaudy Night, the 2019 winner and Steeplechase Horse of the year. If he wins, he will still need another stakes win to qualify for stud. I entered two homebred fillies - 4yo Tipping the Velvet, who seems to like long distance just like her dam. And 3yo Yay or Nay, much less experienced but she won a steeplechase just recently... and happened to be around :P the track is slow, just like it was during that previous race, so maybe that will help her if she likes mud.

Congratulations Shelbie (Black Storm West) for winning The Epsom Derby with Ch. Chortle! Would be cool to see a Frankel colt qualified for stud.

Wow!
I don't know if there is a full race replay but here is the finish:

incredible that he's again so squeaky clean at the finish. Justify becomes another American Triple Crown winner.

Meanwhile, Lewis (Starfish Stables) won the FF Belmont Stakes with our colt Ch. Bong Bong Bong. Congratulations!
