March has been a damn good month weather-wise, but today's been pretty cold and dreary. Pick up your spirits and check out the Florida Derby telecast starting at 5pm on the NBC Sports Network - it will be a good preview of the Kentucky Derby with Union Rags, already the favorite on the first Saturday in May, set as today's 6-5 favorite. The Gulfstream Oaks will go off at 5:03pm and the Florida Derby goes off at 5:40. The NBC Sports Network is on Capital Region Time Warner Cable at channels 44 or 1873. NBC does a great job on their horse racing productions, and watching this race on TV today will get me all fired up for the Saratoga meet just over three and a half months away. You didn't win Mega-Millions, but perhaps you can win a few bucks on the Florida Derby. Have a great weekend.
