    Best. Preakness. ever!

    I just wish the riderless horse won that would have been EPIC! But, how bad does the owner/jockey of the horse that came in after the riderless horse feel? Who cares, not me... Best. Preakness. Ever!!

    The riderless horse is carrying less weight anyway.

    Did the rider get trampled ? I hope not because I wasnt watching it.
    If one synchronized swimmer drowns do they all drown ?

    No, the rider was fine...as soon as I realized he was fine, I started rooting for the riderless horsie! Epic fun (not a horseracing fan in general)!

    Good point, but still, does not diminish the beauty of a horse, bred to run, doing just that but with no motivation aside from breeding/training....

    Could it be, he was just following the other horses? Just, running along with them?

    Actually it's more than likely, but at the same time it doesn't deminish the awesomeness of that particular thoroughbred!!
