Watching online. I handicapped the card and didn't find any playable races

Our poor horse is in so tough in the handicap that I may not even watch. It is a beautiful day. Wish they hadn't carded the sprint for next weekend...

Well, you've got quite a while for that

I had the derby winner and talked about him a lot in the thread last year.

Had him on the nose and also in a future pool.

To be fair, he did get hurt and have surgery

He's come back to have some good runs

Nehro is the closest I've come to having a winner. This year I'm just going to play trifectas. I only need one to hit big.


Sinister minister is my greatest failure

I'm boxing 1 5 in here.

The 1 looks really good, but he's by my retarded jumpers dad. Seems to be holding it together.

I got extremely lucky and hit three box trifectas when I went. Outside of that, I didn't do shite.

re: Fairgrounds road to the derby kickoff day


I was all over Divine Providence in the nightcap last night. Ran second to a 9-1 shot.

Ran six times, first or second in every race except her debut. And two of those losses should have been wins. DQ'd from first to second in November on a very questionable jockey interference call. Ran again in December, the jockey dropped his whip in the stretch and she still placed.

ETA: it was the 9th race last night, not the nightcap.

We had the 3 for her last race. Boy says without the knee she has she'd be a stakes horse. A shame.

She's gorgeous.

Boy was right about the 3. A shame. Wonder how bad it was...

Knee. Bet against her and won. Hubby warned me. Vanned of so no ideas.

Not ours anymore.

We've got wash park in the 8th. Off for eye surgery, 2nd start back. In super tough so I wouldn't bet.

Yup. Stevens back. Guess he got bored after luck ended.

D Wayne (the 5) has lost his touch over the past 5-6 years. I don't trust him and his judgement is questionable at best. I would put the the 3 , Fear the Kitten in the exotics with the 6 & 7. The 3 seems to always be in contention and her 11/24/12 Jockey Club stakes at CD race is a great tune in prep for this one.
