2012 Epsom Derby

232nd running of this classic. Five of the races from the Epsom meeting will be shown on BBC1 this Saturday with the big one at 4.00pm. The last year of having to put up with the Beebs flummery and blathering about fashion etc. as the Derby will be on CH4 from next year. Claire Balding (who will be thankfully taking her knowledge of racing over to CH4 for next season) has an interest in this years Derby. Her trainer brother Andrew is running the second favorite Bonfire. I saw it run at York a fortnight ago and it just pipped my bet of the day Ektihaam in the Dante Stakes *shakes fist at Bonfire*. Good horse (arenít they all in this race) but Camelot has been the favorite for ages.

I thought you'd notice that dress Dawg. Re: Camelot. I didn't back it because there was no value in the bet at odds like that. All the big hitters backed it as far back as March. I think it was 5-1 to win both the Derby and the Guineas back then. I didn't have a bet at all in the derby as I couldn't see anything beating Camelot. Thats probably why the field had the least amount of runners since 1905. A lot of trainers thought whats the point in paying an entry fee for a horse when its up against something like Camelot. Great win by a great stable. Congrats to Aidan and Joseph O' Brien and the Ballydoyle staff. They are steamrollering over all the competition so far this season.

Camelot ridden again by Joseph O'Brien won the Irish Derby last night. Only the 17th horse to win both the English and Irish Derby in the same season in the entire history of both races being run.

Not an easy win and Johnny Murtagh only just got pipped to second place on Born to Sea, half brother to the legend Sea the Stars. From that run we can expect a lot more from BTS. You read it here first.
