Thank you, NBC Sports, for updating us viewers during the broadcast about Clenor, the filly jockey Tyler Baze pulled up in the Senorita Stakes at Santa Anita Park.

Instead of leaving us wondering and thinking the worst, your announcers told us during the live telecast that she was fine.

A check of trainer Doug O’Neil’s Twitter feed confirms it. Shortly after the race, O’Neill tweeted:

He’ll Have Another TROPHY

With the exciting by-a-neck win in the 2012 Preakness Stakes, more congratulations are in order for the connections of I’ll Have Another:

  • The cookie-lovin’ former philosophy professor.
  • The C-student trainer who’s lookin’ pretty smart right now with the first Triple Crown contender in four years.
  • The quiet young jockey who sits chilly and knows when to hand it all over to the horse.
  • The red horse with the big brains and the great big heart.

Have a safe trip to NYC. I suspect America might get excited about horse racing again.
