2002 Kentucky Derby Contenders
The last prep, other than the Derby Trial, has been run and a new
contender, Proud Citizen, came forward from the Lexington to give D.
Wayne Lukas a Derby horse.


Ogden Phipps 1908 - 2002
Ogden Phipps, owner and breeder of numerous champion horses, died Monday
at age 93 in West Palm Beach, Florida, after a short illness. Champions
he campaigned include Buckpasser, Easy Goer, and Personal Ensign.

Graded Stakes Earnings
Updated to include the purse from the Lexington.  Sunday Break is only
29th on the list, but at least 5 above him won't be going.

Weekend Prep Results
Results, charts, and photos for the final major preps, Federico Tesio
and Lexington Stakes. Lukas wins the Lexington with Proud Citizen and
now has a Derby horse!

Kentucky Derby Weather
Up to 15 day forecasts for Louisville plus weather radar.  Will it rain
on Derby day?

Book Review:  The Calumet Collection
"A History of the Calumet Trophies" by Judy Marchman and Tom Hall.
Finally, a book documenting part of the collection and some of Calumet's
greatest horses. Excellent!


This is the deepest OAKS of all time!
JASONMASIS writes, "When have 6 phenomenal fillies ever hooked up in
this classic? TCL will have to do battle with Imperial Gesture on the
front end and I don't see either being able to hold off four talented
closers. Tempera has not been at the top of her game. That leaves You,
Habibti and Bella Bellucci. I like how Drysdale has prepped BB and
haven't liked the way Habibti has looked in the stretch so for now I
like BB on top of You, over the other four. Easily the best race since
the BC."

Breeders' Cup Seating; 2 words "A Joke!!"
NORTHERNFRANKLI writes, "BC has once again mishandled the seating. They
have taken all seating which is under cover and hold it for the
dignitaries, that means sorry "NO FANS ALLOWED". You fans are welcome to
buy seats which surround the turns but have no access to the Arlington
facility or much of a view of the races. The infield would be better
than the aforementioned seats, and that's not going to be open!
Personally I am really disgusted. The fans are "left out in the cold",
