The once a year Derby player (and there is a ton of them) will have TizTLaw a Rock Hard Ten bet.

Sort of like once a year forum guests.  :)

Rock Hard Ten is one of the horses that was used to make the movie “Seabiscuit”

Interesting, C.   Thanks for that little tidbit.  I did not know that.

I wouldn't leave Tiz off my ticket but I don't think he has to go first. 
I think Enforceable can run 2nd....reminds me a little bit of Firing Line.  

Of course I have to play my infamous homebred exacta box, but there aren't many homebreds this year...only 3.   

Art Collector
Major Fed
Finnick the Fierce

Looks like my homebred box just got a lot smaller w/out Art Collector. 
I will add 2 horses to it and still play a 4-horse exacta box.  Because.......my tradition insists on it.  :)

According, we have substitute:

Max Player – Ricardo Santana, Jr. (Kentucky) – 60 pts.

__________________________________

And statistically and arguably one of the best all time riders and Hall of Famer. Further, at great sacrifice to his heavy rider commitments.

 

Caracaro – Javier Castellano 60 pts

And looks like Castellano got Money Moves now that Caracaro is out. 


This might be a good time to write what jockey we would love to see win a KY Derby.   I now there is someone here besides me who like Talamo  and Paco, for instance.   The one thing that happened this year is we do get to see some jockeys who are not ALL just the usual big money riders compete in this race.  I'm looking forward to seeing them ride. 

And QUITE RELIEVED that Rosario isn't gonna be here, and esp. not on any horses I like.   I swear he's like bad ju-ju for me.  I jsut watched him take another horse, who goes wide, even wider this week, another one I had $$ on to run down others in the stretch and of course, Rosario angled him OUT .......OUT..........and OUT........he was practically not on the track anymore    LOL  

Espinoza isn't getting great mounts at DM this year......I keep looking for a good longshot he's on  to win. 
I never play CA, but the values have been very good. 

In a contest on my "oaklawn group forum" to do Churchill all week, so I guess I'll know how the track is playing soon although they will have it souped up for the Derby.    

If anyone notices anything worthwhile, post it up.

There is nothing missing from Cindy's site, at all, she's even got all the KY Derby pools, the prep races, anything and everything you would need for the Derby.  

Just giving credit where due........plus, we're on her forum.  :)

Award winning Cindy and thoroughly thoroughbred comprehensive Tex do an excellent job and are arguably leaders among their craft in the industry.

The Derby and other Grade Churchill PPs I alluded to were well before established and final fields were selected and then drawn for post. Just Sharing info to get a jump on info when final field, Post, official M/L, scratches, jockey reassignments,AM works were Not Available. Yet. They included even all horses subscribed to the respective races, but ultimately not allowed. Pick & Pull info.

My Diary is to share what I'm thinking, learning, observing, and using and then doing about it...ticket construction.

Accordingly this morning I would share the info available and videos on the official Kentucky Derby Twitter site. One does not need to be a Twit/Twitter account holder.

Hey. Send me an email.

Well for sure the Derby one timers will have no idea what I'm talking about. (d)

If one would picture a random draw for jockeys to ride Derby Mounts..I'd go with Castellano.

Rosario runs in hot and cold streaks.

Yes, all historicals are eventually broken.  Has a horse with one eye won yet?  If no then Finnick is due.  :)  
Every time he gets the #1 post he runs 2nd, 3rd or 4th.  Anybody notice that? 

He's in my homebred box so he will be on one of my cheapo tickets by default
