I've got the alarm set to wake up before the sun rises here on the West Coast (I set this story to auto-post in case I hit the snooze repeatedly on Saturday morning). We'll see if I'm able to actually stay up by the time the first race kicks off at Epsom Down.

Camelot's odds will likely be way too short for my tastes and, personally, I'm hoping the Dynaformer colt can win "The Derby" so that Dynaformer can claim a Kentucky Derby and Epsom Derby winner in his offspring. We'll see how it unfolds in the biggest flat race in England this morning.
