Well,I think it's time for all of us horsemen to get out of our easychairs,take a breather from muckin' the stalls,and stop playin with the dog to finally say something to the corporations of america.The Kentucky derby presented by yum brands,The blackberry preakness?I can't believe that these corporations actually insist on putting thier names on two of the oldest AMERICAN events.I think I'm gonna buy a private island,build a track and restart the classics there,with the old original and very meaningful names.I just can't see myself getting all excited nearing that first saturday in may and telling my friends ""I think the filly will win The Kentucky Derby presented by yum brands."

These companies sponsor and also put up a LARGE part of the purse money.
Just as the Dubai races in Saudi Arabia for the World Cup which is sponsored by United Emirates Air.
If these companies are forking up the money for the race why shouldn't their name be mentioned.

I just say The Derby... The Preakness and Belmont. Or the Triple Crown Series. Kinda like Daytona or Indy... people in the loop know what your talking about. I'm sure the cost is tacked on to the prices paid for the "Brand" just like the excessive pay to CEO's. If it really burns your backside don't shop at any of those places and don't buy a BB.
