  • Vicki, someone wrote: "Maximum Security race Bodexpress without Jockey!" 🏇

  • Horse, hold my cider

  • And they are in to the stretch

  • They gave us all very bad information. The horses real name is "I Get No Respect". The jockeys name is Rodney Dangerfield.

  • Unable to do the job, she is too heavyweight...we all saw that...OK??.

  • I love Larry Collmus' race calling. Iconic style.

  • It's a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. Oh, the lack of humanity!

  • Good call, but I wouldn't call the race chaotic.

    • @CUB NATION108 I know the start is dangerous, both my parents were trainers and I grew up on the track, maybe you are right, I think that maybe it's a combination of both what I saw and what you saw, and I'm fairly certain the bettors did not receive a refund. And the people on the backside of the track here call them gatemen.

    • @Vicki Hodges He's actually called an "assistant starter." :) I'm not convinced he held on too long because Bodexpress was really acting up. The gate (and start) is the most dangerous time in the race. I think maybe the assistant starter was trying to keep Bodexpress calm and his head faced forward (which is his job) when the gates opened. It all happens in a blink of an eyes--excuse the cliché. I heard them say ticket-holders would be refunded. Whether that was really done; I don't know.

    • I wouldn't either, the horse never interfered with the others, and had no impact on the outcome. The most 'Chaotic' event of the race occurred at the start when the gateman held on to Bodexpress too long, the track got away with one here, Bodexpress should have been declared a non starter and the fans should have gotten their money back.

  • should have called a false start and redid it. then again you have to give props to the horse, he followed the course.

  • Were all in line and were.ready for the.start!!!!!!!!!

  • Great call here... Totally impressed with Bodexpress. All things considering that horse ran a good race

  • Yeah - I wonder what have happened if Bodexpress had actually won. That would have one for the books !!

  • That was so dangerous but glad all turned out good. That loose horse could have caused a real bad accident. All he knew was to run. He had a very good time. 😂😂

  • I was rooting for War of Will, had $100 on him

  • Lookout jockeys, automation is close.

  • It was not the horse that threw him the gate breaker should be fired he hold the horse bit on purpose

  • I guess the horses really don’t need jockeys. Let them all run without jockeys and let’s see how they do. Geez that horse ran the entire race and beat a horse with no jockey!

  • A true master!!

  • Great call

  • The out rider should have never tried catch #9

  • "I don't need that little guy on me. I got this!"

  • Am I the only one who heard ALALALALALALA *KABOOM* and freaked out for a second 0:08

    • Yep, can I have some of whatever your on?

  • Riderless horse......”most fun I ever had”.

  • Crazy season! 😳🙈

  • Getting beat by a riderless horse....PRICELESS

  • NBC please put out more videos like this

  • I'm in love with horse racing now

  • another colt with danzig in his pedigree comes up big; he may have been the best in kentucky but got caught in that bunch behind the DQed colt who moved over two lanes in the stretch.

  • No mount in 8 Seconds here, Come to Tucson Arizona here we proudly have La Fiesta De Los Vaqueros.

  • Only supposed ride with the Marlboro Man. Heat of the season.Crazy Carol Sings Where Have All The Cowboys Gone BY Paula Cole and 1400 Thoroughbred tunes.

  • Canon binoculars

  • I've never seen footage of the guy calling the race. Cool.

  • I JUST LOVE WATCHING THE LITTLE GUYS RUN!!!!!! I want one so bad!!!!! They are beautiful in a herd!!!!!

    • @Rhonda Foxx 😂🤣✌️

    • @Vicki Hodges No worries... Those thoroughbreds are just so darn beautiful when they run... one forgets about the 120 pound little guy onto of the thousand pound animal. But it is very funny to think of the herd of "little guys"!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!

    • @Rhonda Foxx I get you now, sorry, it was funny picturing those little guys running in a herd, though! 🤭😆🤣✌️

    • @Vicki Hodges I meant "little" as a term of endearment... obviously an 1200 pound creature is not little.....

    • I thought that you were talking about the jockeys!! By the way, most Thoroughbreds are not what is considered 'little'....

  • Looked like the guy in the gate got in the way and the horse jumped to get through which knocked the rider off the horse.

    • cbacamartinez yeah and due to the Derby controversy they played it down .

  • I don't want to see some dumb announcer, I want to see the RACE.

  • Hahaha he did that on purpose. Stupid idiots racing horses. Should’ve stomped on the jockey’s head

  • This Larry Collmus did a great job, calling the race.

  • Bodexpress, WON MY HEART! He has the heart of a CHAMPION! 🏇💖🏆🐴😘

  • MAXIMIN RISK COULD RUN IN THE BELMONT, TO REALLY PROVE TO THE TRAINER AND THE FANS, HE WAS THE HORSE TO BEAT !

  • I love the Darth Vader pump at the end

  • RIch white men racing horses? Animal abuse anyone?

  • So few comments on the skill of Larry Collmus in calling the race. The guy switches between binoculars, tv monitors and bare sight and doesn't skip a beat in the narrative. I always figured they call the race looking at 5 different camera angles.

    • During the duration of Racing, the Announcer comes into the room where all other Commentators are, and tell him what a great performance he does during the call of the Race!

  • Joke !

  • Who else was rooting for the riderless horse to win?

  • Wouldn't it be wiild if the jockey less horse finished fist?

  • War of will for Mark Casse and Gary barber!

  • Larry Collmus is amazing!

  • Wow! He know all those name by heart.

  • If you LOSE a race to a riderless horse.......

  • I was rooting for the riderless horse. Imagine what he could've done if he had a rider. 🐎

  • Proof that you don't need jockeys for these lame events.

  • Bodexpress may not have come in first, but he won the race. Meet horse racing’s newest star.

  • So in this case, does the horse have to put down the rider?

  • That horse wanted to win!

  • Collmus is excellent... good job.

  • My goodness... great call of the action!

  • I could not stop thinking about the Brian Regan bit on a riderless horse winning

  • This guy is amazing to watch. I have to watch it three times to see the whole sequence of events. lol. He is super pro at this.

  • What if the jockeyless horse wins the race ??

    • @Ogie Cruz It doesn't count because they have to carry a specified amount of weight. That is why the jockeys have to hold their saddles and weigh themselves after every race to make sure they are carrying the correct weight.

  • Me announcing - "Uhhh....The guy in the pink shirt is out front.....Nobody's passed him yet...."

  • 1-10 all day !

  • Couldn’t stop watching jockey less horse!

  • DO NOT SELL YOUR HORSES FOR MEAT! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    • As horses make the best pets.))

  • Larry Collmus is so cool.

  • THAT DUDE IS ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!!!!

  • I was so upset to watch Johnny Velasquez fall. This only happens at Pimlico Race Course. I'm glad to know his is not injured!

    • @Maynard Runkle No, unfortunately! The New Name is "Gulfstream West!" Reason being, Calder Race Course is West of Gulfstream!🏇Before Calder Race Course was changed, Jockey Mike E. Smith was Racing "Holy Bull!" to Victory! That's how I met Jockey Mike E. Smith!🏇

    • @Gayle Friedman They don't call it Calder any more though do they?

    • @Michael Pflug I agree. I don't know why JV did not blame the poor start and his unseating on the guy who held the bridle too long. I can only imagine he felt sorry for that and did not want the handler to be fired.

    • Maynard Runkle JV comments also probably were a big factor in Bodexpress being considered a starter and people not getting refunded for their wagers on him.

    • My favorite Race Course is and always will be Calder Race Course! The Handlers are more caring for each Thoroughbred. When Thoroughbreds act wild in their gate, the starter of the race, has the Handlers remove all Thoroughbreds, and walk them around for a couple of seconds to reload these Sensitive Ton Animals back in form. While reloading, have at least Four (4) handlers keep the face of these costly Thoroughbreds & Jockeys in a Straight Line without jumping up and out! Mike E. Smith's Horse was jumping throughout the Gate! Now the Moron opens the Gate? I go to the Races. Since the age of Nine (9.) So, I know a lot of Horse Racing! I talk to Jockey's I adore. Mike E. Smith is my Favorite Jockey in Life for Life! Now you know me!

  • Hilarious! My new favorite horse. Riderless.😃.and he still ran the race, and did pretty well. Bodexpress for President!

  • Where was the handlers to keep all horses straight in line before all this camotion took place before gates opened?

  • HAMC81

  • War of Will takes the Preakness after getting boxed out at the Kentucky Derby by “Maximum Security” and “The Horse Declared The Winner Whose Name I Have Long Since Forgotten Because It Was Never In Contention To Win In The First Place” lol

  • Excellent call.

  • Nice call bro!!!!

  • You had one job. And you nail it. That's this.

  • I wonder what a total riderless race would be like. Just the horses competing with each other. Might be more fun for them... 🐎

    • More fun for us...

    • Easy- imagine what the result of MS's spook in the Derby would have been without a rider on WOW to pull him up.

  • The jockey that fell off of his horse must really feel...…..STUPID! I wonder if this incident will negatively impact his future employment prospects?

    • It wasn't his fault, I don't think he is embarrassed at all. He is a veteran jockey. It was the handlers doing an awful job at the starting gate..made the horse buck to the left..

  • Probably the last race at Pimlico. Doubt the Preakness be returning back to Baltimore. $500 million renovation wouldn't even be worth it

  • The strain on those poor horses bodies😢

  • announcer is very skilled

  • I have a novel idea. For the Belmont let's start every horse without a jockey. we can do like Greyhound Parks and have them chase something around the track, maybe they can chase the fallen jockey as he runs around the track with a carrot on a stick!!!

    • @Chris Oxford 🤣😂😆👍

    • @Vicki Hodges ah got me again

    • @Chris Oxford sure buddy, as long as you can make the weight!!!

    • @Vicki Hodges if it's a nice booking lady owner may I be one of the jockeys?

    • Better yet, let's get all of the owners out there and let's run them against each other WITH a jockey on them... And a whip!!

  • I was eating Popcorn, and drinking Diet Soda, laughing like crazy as Bodexpress ran the entire race, without his Jockey!!!😂 This racing season will go down in history, as CRAZY!!!😎 I must say, that I was proud of Bodexpress, because he did NOT interfere with any of the other Horses, as he ran his race WITHOUT his Jockey!!!! Well trained horse.....way to go Bob Baffert!!!!! Can't wait to see if some CRAZY thing happens at Belmont!!! Congrats to the WINNER, War of Will......well deserved!!!!🤗

    • @Maynard Runkle, thanks, my mistake. I thought that Baffert trained Bodexpress, because he trained Bodemeister, in 2012. Part of these horses' names, "Bode", is named for Baffert's Youngest Son, Bode Baffert. Baffert, in turn, named his Son after American Skier, Bode Miller, who tragically, lost his 3-Year-Old Daughter to a Drowning Accident, in a Neighbor's Swimming Pool, a couple of years ago.

    • @Tracy Davis Baffert trained Bodexpress' sire Bodemeister but he does not train Bodexpress. His trainer is Gustavo Delgado. He is still a maiden which means he has not yet won a race.

  • Heck this riderless 🐎 made a MUCH safer and less chaotic run around the track than we saw in the Derby with every horse in the field still having a jockey at the finish.

    • @Greta I 🤣😁👍

    • @Vicki Hodges Nor am I 😎

    • @Vicki Hodges Yes, Indeed..😍

    • @Greta I that depends on whether it's two legged or four, I'm not as patient with the two legged kind. 😂🤣😁

    • @Vicki Hodges 😎agree; WE just need to not be affraid of being smart in a gentle way😍

  • He is a pro!!! So effortlessly calling the race and naming the horses!

  • That dude rules!

  • This was awesome. Dude is spot on and so cool and collected with the call.

  • Congratulations, Bodexpress! Just as I am the rightful King, he is the rightful champion!

    • Stannis the mannis you shouldn't have listened to the Red Woman. You would have been king had you laid a siege on King's Landing and not gone to the Wall.

  • Doing it old school with binoculars.

    • It's not old school!! All horse callers use binoculars now a days because they can't see the back straightaway really well without them!! The booth is above the start/finish line!!

  • This is why you should always fasten your seatbelt.

    • Ha ha, totally dude!!! That's hilarious, the funniest comment I've read in regards to the Preakness!!! Thanks!

    • Brooks .Anderson Lol, hahaha 😄😄 Best comment ever! !!!

  • Just imagine if the riderless horse had some how come in first . That would’ve been hilarious

    • @irisheyes317 you got it! Proof that after more than three hundred years of breeding, the Thoroughbred horse is literally 'Born to run', and given the opportunity, will run on its own, without being forced too!!!

    • @Renee Tellez that doesn't make it any less hilarious

    • He's a winner for showing PETA!

    • Only thing this did was change the pattern of the race for the horse and riders!

    • James Rippy It happens more often then you think horses that unrides there jockey usally win .Losinh that 100 pounds jockey makes a difference

  • I was rooting for the horse with the Phantom rider.

  • This guy must have the hardest anouncer postion becuase he only has about 2 mins to microseconds to put out words the second are the announcers for the red bull air race

    • He has to memorize every horse based on the jockey's silks for EACH RACE. You just learn one then have to forget it all for the next one with less than an hour to do it. It's really amazing they can do it so well. Colmus was the race caller at Suffolk Downs in East Boston before it shut down. I went there often.

  • I wanted the riderless horse to win.

  • I don't know about yall, but Bodexpress was hanging in there pretty nice by himself. I wonder what woulda happened if he won... That was epic... Can these races get any weirder?? I loved it....

    • I would been feeling awful! I had him🐴😱

    • Gary Allen, so did I!!! I am watching the Race over, and over again!!! Absolutely, hilarious!!!😆

    • Karma...thank goodness everyone is alright. Racing has bad karma.

    • Even if he outran all the other horses, he was an automatic DNF (did not finish) as soon as he unseated his rider. To be qualified to earn money, to be qualified even to be listed in a placement, he has to carry the assigned weight of 126 pounds. For the purposes of the record books, he did not complete the race.

  • When the outrider joined the race, I thought he stood a chance of a first three finish.

    • I think the outrider is a "she" [pony tail hair]. "She stood a chance ..." No, she and her horse didn't run the full lenght of the Race: 1 and 3/8 miles or 1.9 Kms.

  • The horseless headsman wins!!!

  • I bet the loose horse.. im glad it was only 2 dollars across. just my luck I bet cause johnny v my favorite jockey.

    • I took the same 🐎! Belmont is his hopeful Debut! "Go Johnny Go, Johnny be Good!"

  • War of Will ran a fast Preakness....the running time was very impressive. Congrats to the trainer, owner and, of course, the jockey.

    • @Vincent Flauto me thinks your right.

    • Vicki Hodges he’s gonna be very tough to beat!!

    • @Vincent Flauto I didn't say that WOW can't get the distance, and I think there may be more than two good horses in here, and yes Tacticus is a very big, stout horse, Thankful for that, seen two different races now with horses bumping him, I think if he can get some breathing room for a change, he is going to be running like an out of control freight train down the stretch!! And I agree with you about his being green, he was climbing in one of his races, and who knows, maybe he won't fire in the Belmont, as big as he is, he might desperately need a little more time to mature... But I say, Go Tacitus!!!

    • Vicki Hodges I really don’t worry too much about Tacitus when it comes to running his race he’s very strong and can handle bumping better than most horses. But please do not be one of these people who thinks war of will cannot handle distance he is going to be very tough in the Belmont and I really believe almost 100% that Tacitus and war of Will will be the top two finishers I know they’re the favorites but that’s just the way I see it. Also people are saying this is going to be a boring race I disagree I think you have two great horses in here and you will see a great race and down the road every one will realize that these are two great horses. This year‘s crop is deeper than everyone is saying trust me on that.

    • @Vincent Flauto And he had to check four times..

  • For all of you people that think the riderless horse was a big joke, you obviously dont know how dangerous that can be!!! horses and or riders could be killed!! its not a joke !!! its very serious

    • You are right. Horse racing..I don't think it's right. They make these horses run..and they are still developing and too young at three years old to be racing such hard races. Although I was laughing at Bodexpress. Couldn't help it, he was just out there chilling, running and having a great time Riderless. He stole the show.

    • @Stuart H your absolutely right, I saw it the same way you did, the gate man had a hold of that horse, causing it to rear up in the first place, I can't understand how the track got away with not refunding all tickets on Bodexpress, the track announcer even pointed it out on his loud speaker!!! And as I said before, Bob Baffert isn't going to enter a horse in a race of this stature without having it 100 % prepared, including coming out of the gates!!!

    • Vincent Flauto, I did not know this, and thanks for bringing this everyone's attention!!! I will NOT be laughing anymore, about this Race!!! Yes, it could have been dangerous, just like in the Derby, if the other Horses had tripped over Maximum Security, who was disqualified, even though he Won the Derby!!!!

    • So Luis Saez gets 15 days, but this starter with a hand full of Bodexpress as he was breaking is not at fault? He blatantly interfered and compromised that horse' break. Ridiculous what could have happened out there...

    • Ha ha ha!

  • What a great call!!

  • this guy is an idiot!! he called WOW having to ride to keep up!!! i couldnt believe my ears!! it was clear that he was full of run!!!!!

  • Bodexpress ❤
