The added clay should speed up the track if they scrape it like they have in the past.

Should be an interesting race

Atrorious has stretched out with every start. 

Looks like the connections decided not to rush him

For me he is my longshot win bet and exata with the fave

A nice exacta, good luck with it.

The trainers have noted the track is not tight. Deep. For meet  Goggle it. Sent a link but no go.

If you watch Friday or Thurs mile and eighth...get your mount up at 6 fl. Closers or those behind don't overcome the dirt conditions, example strategy due to surface. 

In Trav perhaps game over at mile 

Rain Friday. Will watch early races both dirt + grass. Play pick 5 beginning 7th.

Another useful URL to bookmark for free PP's...

Just change the date (usually by 10PM ET, the next day's PP's are there) to get the PP's for all the graded stakes in North America for that day. Here it is for Travers day:

Glad you posted. Kono just returned to site and it was a heads up to his saying

 "The added clay should speed up the track if they scrape it like they have in the past."

He now has got the memo

I'm guessing you thought I was talking about Early Voting, I was talking about Cyberknife !

Let me know, I better edit my message.

no, I was simpy addressing your note about "hard to figure out pace" .........I thought you meant for most all the horses in this race due to reformulated track, etc.......

  and then I decided to add a note about EV, i.e he was weaving in stretch in Preakness, for instance.
