What Can Brown Do For You? He Can Finish Last at 1-4.

Speaking of the races themselves, everyone knows by now that Big Brown fell well short of the Triple Crown on Saturday. I couldn't quite bring myself to root for him, because his trainer, Rick Dutrow, had been such a classless act leading up to the race. Plus, as great as Big Brown looked in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, his competition looked equally bad. We've waited 30 years for a Triple Crown winner; I don't mind waiting another few if it means finding a more dramatic and well-tested winner.

What's mostly lost in all the post-race talk is that Da' Tara won the race going wire to wire. Not an easy task at a mile and a half, even if the competition was so-so.
