Backyard Heaven

I think it’ll be a good race.  I kind of like IWC to edge out Backyard Heaven, Honorable Duty, and Hawaakom.  I might go out to CD Saturday evening; that’ll be my tri box if I go.

I think Backyard Heaven is on the improve. Irish War Cry will never get my money. He is too inconsistent. Since beginning his career with three straight wins, he's gone 7th, 1st, 10th, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 2nd, 6th, 1st. He never seems to run back to back good races at this level.

Motion says he’s had an “electrolyte imbalance” this whole time.  Supposedly they’ve got it under control now and they’re going to give him a smaller dose of Lasix.

Antennas up on why my best buddy Lookin At Lee is in this deep and this distance. Purse very attractive.

Can't leave him out. 2017 DogsUp Delta horse of the year.

You too? It's only June and it's steaming down here. Not a good sign. No more storms!

I like Backyard Heaven, but his odds are very short. Pavel at a price?

Pavel put it together for the win at 7-1.  Backyard Heaven faded in the stretch and finished 6th.  Irish War Cry pulled up and was vanned off :( Hope he’s okay.

They charged $10 just for admission today; a seat in the grandstand was $25!  I guess because they were parading Justify, I don’t know.  Nice way to treat the fans, gouge them whenever you can.

Thought maybe they'd learn a lesson from Lee's last race. Put him near the pace and let him try to grind his way to the winner's circle. No chance from so far out of it. Pavel was impossible in this race at those odds, he came into this race way off form.
