TAB have a market on the Kentucky Derby (cannot reproduce those here any more unfortunately).

Always Dreaming, the Florida Derby winner, is $6 favourite ahead of Classic Empire ($7) and Irish War Cry ($8).

$5.50 the field with the 22 horses starting. TAB and Ladbrokes have Always Dreaming the fave at the same price.

Race scheduled for 8.46 a.m. AEST.

How hopeless was that caller.

Didn't even mention the the one which put on a rodeo display after the start.

What was it?

Was it Thunder Show which I didn't even hear in the call? The conditions and general camera work made recognition so difficult-for me at least.

If you're talking about Larry Collmus, Jeff, the first horse he mentioned out of the gate was the winner and the second was Thunder Snow and his difficulties. He then referred to him again as "the colt from Dubai" at the end of his first run through.

Don't know the name jwh but he certainly missed Thunder Snow's act.

Larry Collmus, as j.r.b. said got it correct (He was on the NBC coverage which we saw on ESPN).

Correct and the coverage on ESPN left Sky 526 for dead.
