Mike just reported some big news at Belmont: "Casino Drive, the horse considered to be the real challenger evidently stepped on a rock this morning or late yesterday."
Hard to imagine a horse stepping on a rock. But not to worry. Mike is on the case. He is fervently reporting on this story, as if the U.S just entered another Cold War. In times like this, I have to turn things over to Captain Ross:
Now, Mike Francesa, is gonna try to pull off a little magic act, he's gonna try a little misdirection. He's going to astonish you with stories of bone bruises and dazzle you with official sounding terms like Backstretch He might even cut into a few trainers for you. He'll have no evidence, mind you, none. But it's gonna be entertaining. When we get to the end, all the magic in the world will not have been able to divert your attention from the fact that Casino Drive may be dead in this race, and Rick Dutrow planting a rock may have killed his chances. These are the facts of the case.
