    It couldn't have happened to a better guy. He just got a karmic payback, bigtime. 17 years ago, he led three children to safety in an Iowa cornfield following the crash of United flight 232 from Denver to Chicago.

    He led the two brothers and their sister, who were traveling without their parents, away from the burning wreckage. D.D. Alexander, Matz's fiancee at the time and now his wife, also survived and the two stayed with the children until their parents arrived.

    Matz and another passenger then went back inside the plane after hearing the cries of a baby and pulled the infant out of a luggage compartment.

    "I think Michael is one of those rare people who does amazing things and doesn't showboat or take a lot of credit," Melissa Radcliffe, now 29 and one of the children Matz saved, said earlier this week. "In the plane crash, we knew him but we had no idea he was an Olympic equestrian rider. He said he was just a guy who likes horses."'

    If Barbaro goes on to win the Preakness in two weeks, the stage would be set for a fourth Triple Crown try in the past five years at the Belmont Stakes on June 10. War Emblem in 2002, Funny Cide in '03 and Smarty Jones in '04 each won the Derby and Preakness, but came up short in the last race.

    I know which horse I'll be rooting for in the Preakness.

    A class horse and a class guy. I had picked Barbaro in my trifecta but my other two horses lost bady.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Barbabo crossed my mind before the race, as the winner. My father betted on Brother Derek. he finished like fourth or tied for it. But that's cool, he didn't bet TOO much money on it...at least I don't think so.
