Hey Dr Vet I need some ointment
I'm scheduled for the 1st Saturday in May appointment
Rub a dub dub on the colts hind quarters
Who knew it would create such merky legal waters
Everybody but the $2 bettor put their 2 cents in, and hired a veter
All the horses and stables and even the mares got moved around like musical chairs
Headlines and stories.. horses.. drugs in the news
Gave more public exposure to the industrie's blues 

But the transportation agreement was there, they swore to the court they'd handle with care

Somewhere the racing gods (small g) used to breaking in a tangle
Managed to pull off results that created a mangle
Now the judge and the court and parties will meet
And the verdict will come down to a photo Dead Heat

Hoofnote: The speed figures for Derby day also calculate into it a factor of the track variant.

The fact that the races that day; over a mile and quality Grade runners push the number upwards.

Also on fine track surface conditions, mother nature and track maintenance equipment, the variant will push up the number.

Yet...When it is a soupy track; the variant is still a factor for lifting the number upwards as other races with Graded runners are compared using the surface as a Delta or par as to the aggregate times on the surface.

And a thought that earlier races could be run on wet/drying surface and by 6:45 PM the 1st Saturday in May, the surface has dried and the maintenance crew has an hour and a half to spin some speed magic into the track with equipment and maybe aqua.

²Hoofnote: Maxfield is a free square Saturday, at...The Spa.

³ Dogs passed on betting/using the 5 win streak filly last Saturday. Dogs passed on The Haskell/Hot Rod Charlie.

Since 1992, 26 of 29 (89.6 percent) Kentucky Derby winners have entered the race with a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of at least 95. This number would be 27 out of 29 if Maximum Security had not been disqualified in the 2019 Kentucky Derby, gifting Country House with a victory.Apr 20, 2021

Favorites winless in the last 7 Jim Dandy. Dandies.

During that time, 5 winners of Triple Crown races have all been beaten in the 1 1/8-mile race that serves as the local stepping-stone to the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers on Aug. 28. So the 80 - 20 rule says odds are good for EQ. Also super favs have exhausted the odds,by failing as in last Saturday 5 ror 5 Philly losing, Knicks Go went. And Hot Rod Charlie take down 

EQ faces colt 3yo-peers who just never ran a good race at the G1 level. 

1/2 is oddly the number el fresco. I say it to be $2.60 and South to $2.40. 

Avoid cave man tickets.

Buy -construct a full $2 (x number of picks in other legs ticket" The hard ten picks.

Then 50ty center with vigorish multiple horse in legs where using the potentials of a 7-1 or better sets your ticket compounding.
