Horse-racing fever once again grips the country on the first Saturday in May this weekend, when 20 of the best thoroughbreds in the world line up to contest the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. LOL pays tribute to the sporting event dubbed the “greatest two minutes in sports” with a glimpse at the lighter side of the racetrack, beginning with this hilarious call at fictional The Honeymoon is Over Downs. Because of strong language, viewer discretion is advised.
And announcer Larry Colmus calls this tongue twister at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey, in what has become a horse-racing classic. Good luck in the Derby, and please come back next Tuesday for a tour of the lighter side of life. — The Wickel
