Yeah, in all the BB-watching, it's too bad this horse's great effort is getting pushed to the background.

Still can't believe you could bet against BB.

Ain't he a happy one, handsome too. Win any?

Margo,
Yep, it certainly is much more "Big Brown lost" than, who was that?,..."Da'Tara won".

As for betting against Big Brown, don't get me wrong, he is an awesome horse (I did have a tri-fecta with him first), I just never got caught up with him like with Barbaro, Curlin or even War Emblem.
As for Da'Tara, I was looking for a fresh horse, with breeding, training well, fantastic trainer, and a great name (in addition to Zito's reasons for the name, of course, their is my niece, Tara!).
How could we not win?
Too bad my friends didn't know this :)

Lori,
Yep, I did!
My $2.00 across on DaTara helped put me ahead by $151.00 for the day. And for someone who doesn't bet much, this was a big deal.

He is handsome, too. Look at the definition of all those muscles!
