YOU KNEW THERE WASN'T GOING TO BE A TRIPLE CROWN TODAY...:

Da' Tara wins Belmont as Big Brown finishes last (Associated Press, June 07, 2008 )

Big Brown failed in his bid to become horse racing's 12th Triple Crown winner when he finished dead last to Da' Tara in the Belmont Stakes.

Da' Tara went wire to wire to beat eight other thoroughbreds over 1 1/2 miles, the longest and toughest of the three classics.

"I had no horse," said Big Brown's jockey, Kent Desormeaux.


...when Jim McKay was summoned home before the race.

Looks like we're having a US open contest....
