Admittedly Tiz the Law has run to to his Derby favoritism to date. He is the 3 yo that appears like the proverbial Hollywood casted colt with a future Derby and TC Destiny.
He really looks the part with his striking color and markings. Walking around the barn, when taking his rider up, post parade, down the stretch, crossing the line. First. Winner's Circle. He looks like a fresh, muscular stick out of the crop colt.
With two major defections in the unplugged Belmont Stks distance another Hollywood theme comes onto the table.
A nobody colt runs a first allowance race, on a Thursday afternoon.. And nears the track record for 8.5 panels.
Add that Dogs sees a predictable zig zig in TTLaw's runway landings...could be money race.
Epilog: Derby 2020
I was in a bit of a tizzy after we all knew
we had a first time Derby DQ
Last year. After the last beer.
No one had cause to cheer
Racing seemed fuzzy for the rest of the year
Along comes a Derby more stranger
Thought mask and a horse was about the Lone Ranger
Nobody was there to make it exciting
Not even The Dogs could make it inviting
'My Old Kentucky Home' sounded so dead
It didn't raise the hairs on the back of my head
Like it always did. Since I was a kid
Small field and awkward network video angles
Not even a broke in opening tangles
Colts ran along in single file
Not a tight one as the Pioneer of the Nile
No cigar smoking and distancing in line
To buy a drink one had to dine
Hey really I'm not about to cry
After all we had the full Tri
And pardon me if I seem unworthy
There's nothing like the Kentucky Derby
The handle was nearly 1/2 of last yr.
I was confident the horizontals would pay. ..Twenty cent...that's correct Huskman...20 cent
Pick 6 into Derby 261,802.50
10 cent super $745
$1 pk 4. 5,243.50
