Smarty Jones - Will he win the triple crown?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Jun 4, 2004.

  1. I say he wins by sixth lengths.

    Bear in mind that it's supposed to rain Saturday, thus making a muddy track.

    A triple crown winner after 26 years; I'd say we're just about due.

    What do you think?

    Mike - I'm so excited!!! :hyper:

    I want a racing horse named "I Didn't Want To Win, Anway."

    "And coming round the last corner, I Didn't Want To Win, Anway is edged out by Smarty Jones in the closing moments of the lap!"

    I hope so.

    Nice to see there's a few people interested in horses here. My wife and I are in to it, and we both have horses and ride when we can.
  7. I am soooo jealous, Mike. I love horses.

  8. Go Seabiscut!

    Can anyone explain the sudden interest in horseracing to me, cuz I don't get it? Suddenly, anyone who's anyone is watching horseracing -- Nick and Jessica, Carson Daly, Beyonce -- to name a few. What am I missing?

    Whoever bet on Birdstone will be sitting pretty tonight.

    The more people talked Smarty Jones up, the more I became suspicious. Still, I wanted him to win and really thought he would. Incredible finish.

    Somebody asked what I thought would happen at the race. I figured, because destiny sucks, that he would have a great lead in the beginning, but lose in the end. How close was I?

    Maybe because people (including me) are tired of stick and ball sports, and tired of athletes pissing and moaning that they dont make enough money warming the bench.

    I predict that Smarty Jones will not win the triple crown.
  17. Crap!!! :(

    I wanted Jones to win because it's so hard to win the triple crown, and this horse basically came out of no where. A few people think that he blew it because he wasn't on the rail. Plus Belmont is the longest track of the three. (1.5 miles)

    Hey, what can you do - C'est La vie.

    I was looking forward to Smarty Jones tee shirts, Smarty Jones credit cards, Smarty Jones flavored ice cream. :spit: :D

    I guess I should just give up Jonesing for anything named Jones, be it Catherine Zeta, or Smarty. :(

    Never give up the dream of marrying a horse, and owning a woman, Mike. NEVER!

  19. Right you are, Brendan. :)
    It would be nice if I could find a woman with constant laryngitis, then I'd have a woman that's always a little hoarse. :rolleyes: :bag:
