Justify and TV Coverage of Horse Racing

Posted on 4 min read 66 views

I meant to write a post about 2018 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner AND Triple Crown contender Justify, let alone tell you where and when you can to watch the Belmont Stakes on TV.

But I veered off into a tangent about racing coverage on TV, inspired by Justify’s shot at history.

It all started with a link to an article my husband “MacGuyver” sent me.

The Monsoon Triple Crown?

Big corporations have taken a couple of years to do this, to update their websites to compliancy with the General Data Protection Regulations set by the European Union, a.k.a., GDPR.

As usual, the information trickled down to us little guys late enough in the game we have a few weeks before the May 25 deadline to get our acts together.

I had thought that, because I don’t sell anything here nor do I make any money from it, I didn’t need to fix this site. But between sending out notices of updates to the blog via email and the Google Analytics plug-ins, let alone requiring y’all to send me your email addresses so you can comment on posts, I realized I have to toe the line, too.

Plus, I’ve always taken the safety of both you and your info seriously.

Sasscer Hill and I look ready for the 2018 Kentucky Derby Clubhouse, except we were at the Aiken Spring Steeplechase a couple of years ago.

Somehow, in a span of hours, we went from snow here in New England to 2018 Kentucky Derby week. Of course, I’m mentally ready, but not physically. Or maybe it’s vice versa? I’ve been a little distracted.

Case in point? I missed telling you about the 2018 Kentucky Derby Post Position Draw.

No. Wait–Bill Nack as Boswell? Really?

Way too flippant to start this piece.

Start over, Rhonda. And don’t try to get fancy. You can’t play in Bill Nack’s league.

I’m not sure anyone can.

Farewell, William Nack.
