Thought I would start a thread about this race. Steve G already mentioned Noble Indy elsewhere and we all should no about Instilled Regard by now. I may throw in High North. No, not just because of the name :). He took fourth in a race where Good Majic took second then later ran second to Avery Island. Two horses ranked high on a lot of people's list. Also, his last race he did not break well and got bumbed in the first turn by a horse who lost his rider. He still rallied nicely to take fourth in that one. Not huge connections or big named trainers but at 8-1 he may be worth a shot here. Just needs to break cleanly and stay a little closer to the lead.
I'm intrigued by Supreme Aura. Seems talented, but is making a big step up here, and stretching out around two turns. A lot to ask.
Looks like High North has a 15-1 ML. What the heck bombs away with a small WP bet. Will be at OTB this weekend so need to look at other races on the card at the Fairgrounds too.
High North is legit in this race. Hope he stays around his ML. I'll be double keying him and Instilled Regard for 1st/2nd and 1st/3rd.
Wouldn't be surprised if Ebben sneaks in for 4th.
Double keying. I like it. Sounds like a great plan. Good luck to us!!
Thinking of throwing together an exacta with Principe, Noble Indy, High North and Kentucky Club, going for value here.
looks like kentucky club is racing monday in the prep at oaklawn
I had exactly one horse in this race in my dirty dozen and he goes and wins lol. I need to start paying more attention. I forgot they were even running this race today.

I was on my way to the track to wager this , until I almost fell down a few times in my driveway due to an all-of-a-sudden onset of intense pain.........the kind of pain that was so bad that I started throwing up. This would be the first time in 64 years I have ever been in an ambulance, or called 911.
After 8 hours in the ER and tests, it turns out i have a rather large kidney stone trying to pass out of my body thru a very small duct.
Hey, don't get one of these. The ER doc said giving birth is often less painful in many cases. :)
congrats! I started realizing that lukas thinks he has somethin' because of how often I am seeing him in the saddling paddocks this year. That has not been true the last few years. dunno if this means anything, just pointing it out.
