Previous networks covering the KY Derby had 5-10-minute stories about the horses. NBC focuses on the people – any people. While they finally (last hour) did a good long story on Tiz the Law, mostly they stories did people: people partying in their living rooms (this year), people wearing screwball costumes, people in NON-horse racing sports, etc. A story about the horses has people in it , the key people for that horse. That’s the story. Not all this other stuff. Stories about the horses make better tv. NBC should get with it!
Provide stories about the HORSES and the people ( owners, trainers, jockeys, grooms) who are part of the horses pictures. That should be the focus. THAT is the story.
