Del Mar ad featuring this year's odds-on favorite.

Opening Day 2015 at the Del Mar Racetrack had it all: high-stepping pageantry, fierce competition, desperate gambles, brutal jockeying for position, and the mysterious combination of effortless grace and hard-won physical excellence that is the mark of a true champion.

"Good breeding is essential," says Racetrack Spokesman Derek McCool, "but when you compete at this level, you can't get by on breeding alone. If you want to stand out, it takes discipline, training, and a fierce desire to do whatever it takes. And while the little man on your shoulder can spur you on, ultimately, the power has to come from within."

Ahh, the racetrack and opening day. It offers something for everyone, or at least tries. Those fillies all look like winners, but winning what is hard to say.

(You are amusing.) What about fourth from left for shortest hemline meets halter-neck deep cleavage? Not exactly chopped liver.
