Weird Stuff that happened on P.A. Derby Day 2018

(“Bite This“?)

Coming down the stretch, Firenze Fire #10 (R) with Irad Ortiz, Jr. riding overcame a bite from long shot, 2nd place finisher Whereshetoldmetogo (L) with jockey Jeremy Rose on board to win the $300,000 Grade III Gallant Bob Stakes at Parx Racing Today! If you can’t beat ’em then bite ’em, I guess?

(Monomoy Girl Dq’d  What?)

Midnight Bisou (L) and Monomoy Girl (R) battling for the win in the GI Cotillion Stakes with Monomoy Girl getting to the line first but was later dq’d down to 2nd for herding and not staying in her lane down the stretch, breaking a 4 race GI winning streak!

(Mikey, Mikey, Mikey)

After picking up the controversial GI Cotillion win, Mike Smith – Bob Baffert and McKinzie did teamed up to win today’s GI Pennsylvania Derby and a very nice GI racing double for Big Money Mike! Alas, racing sanity did finally return at Parx today!
