From The Grandstand

Voices From The Grandstand

  • Trainer Shug McGaughey on the many interview requests he has received since winning the Kentucky Derby with Orb:

    I’m prepared. I’ve read about it and watched other people go through it; I was ready for it to happen to me.

  • ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”:

    The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby was Saturday. They call the Kentucky Derby the most exciting two minutes in sports. It isn’t, but they call it that. I think the most exciting two minutes in sports would be Mike Tyson fighting a hammerhead shark.

  • CBS’s David Letterman on the “Late Show with David Letterman”:

    Over the weekend [was] the Kentucky Derby. It featured a lot of things: first woman jockey, that would be cool, and as I understand it, the first openly black jockey.
