They all are, but itís pretty high up so the front rows could get wet if itís a good rain.

    Honestly, Iíve never sat in the grandstand. The backyard is where itís at, but if youíre traveling in from out of town and wonít have chairs/tables/coolers it wonít be the same experience. Youíre allowed to bring food/drinks in (no glass bottles), and make your own picnic in the backyard.

    Wheníre you coming?

    Coming in Saturday for Travers with wife and family and the guy who sold the tickets at NYRA box office said they're covered, which is cool, but with a chance of rain I wanted to be sure and it's hard to tell with photos online.

    I used to sit at At the Rail before they upgraded it.

    Re: ~~ Official Kentucky Derby/All Racing Thread YEAR TO YEAR ~~

    Just walked in the door a little while ago from an absolute wild weekend at Del Mar, CA for the Breeders Cup. Had an absolute blast, had never been to California before but it was awesome. It was a shit-show leaving the facility on Friday night waiting for an Uber but on Saturday we just walked across the street (well, up a little bit) to a brewery called Viewpoint and it was really nice.

    Funny story. The wife and I went to a restaurant called Monarch in Del Mar on Friday night and everything was packed. So we went to the adjacent roof deck restaurant of a place called Monarch because the actual inside restaurant of Monarch had a 2 hour wait. Apparently a lot of tourists in. So we get there, find a seat and are just chilling waiting for our food when this table of women in front of us are chatting and one goes to pet this dog at another table. Then the woman starts lecturing the other woman out of nowhere because the dog was whining apparently for the 20 minutes before we got there and said it was cruel how the dog was treated to the other woman. Then she started bickering with another woman at another table because she thought the other called her a Desperate Housewife and the other woman sitting with her friends goes "go away you f*cking whacko!" Keep in mind this is literally me at my first restaurant ever in California and this is what I'm experiencing and all I can think of is all the people over the years saying how Cali is so chill and yada yada versus the East Coast. Anyways it was kinda funny, you had to be there and the loud mouth woman who started it got booted out of there with her friends and everyone was laughing about it when the left. Just surreal.

    The track is very pretty, Saturday was nice weather wise, in the 70's and the sun finally came out. So I've been to Belmont, Saratoga, Churchill Downs and now Del Mar and just need to hit Pimlico and Santa Anita. Did Gulfstream like 2 years ago for the Pegasus World Cup and that place was very nice.

    “Work” trip to Keenland on the 8th. 3 stakes races that day. Only bad thing is I have to be on an airplane for Disney at 5AM the next day.

    I like Tawny Port, Cyberknife, and Smile Happy as far as long shots are concerned.

    I keep coming back to Epicenter overall though. Zandon and Mo Donegal aren't too far behind. Pretty wide open field imo and it looks to be a wet one.

    I'm having a lot of trouble lol. Ended up with just a few bullshit wagers, to make it interesting. I can make a case for like a half dozen runners.

    I had so much riding on Epicenter only for him to come up 2nd. Putting $2.50 on Rich Strike would've covered my losses over these last two days.

    That's why horse racing is so awesome and so awful.

    $1 Superfecta paid $321,000 and change.

    And absolute stunner.

    2nd biggest upset in Derby history in terms of odds.

    Wasn't even on the list on Friday morning.

    Isn't even on the list below.

    And was one of the last two horses to load and I'm thinking "alright #21, load in so the race can start." LOL

    On that note, don't watch 50 to 1. It's about Mine That Bird's win in 2009, but obviously nobody used any winnings to make it based on the finished product.
