At his best Denman was fantastic on a day to day basis. I liked Durkin better for the biggest races. He ramped up the excitement and anticipation like no other.

Collmus should have been replaced after butchering one of the greatest races in BC history, the Songbird vs Beholder Distaff from a few years ago. Stuttered and stammered at the 1/8 pole, he didn't know what the hell to say. Inexcusable. Wrona with the on track call nailed it, as usual.

Collmus also gives us some of he corniest calls ever. The sht he comes up with is bad.

I think Travis Stone is fantastic, and the young kid at GGF Matt Dinerman is really good. He will be going places.
