I've narrowed down my winner to:
Gunnevera, Classic Empire, Girvin, Always Dreaming, Irish War Cry, Hence, and McCraken

I'll pick my choice for winner on Saturday (before the race  Wink)

I get his point----harness racing promotes The Kentucky Derby, yet Churchill Downs would never say, come to CD on Saturday to bet and watch The Hambletonian.

But, do we have choose sides? Can't a New Yorker root for the Yankees and the Mets? We know that there is not a harder working athelte than the standardbred horse, but can't we like both diversions?

I used to get self-conscious when I used to tell people I like harness racing, but no more. But, you can like both......

Yep. I like harness better but it does feel like the little brother.
