I don’t know if Franco’s ride on Tiz The Law was very good or very bad.He seemed to put the colt in a pocket when there was no need to.I am sure it was a learning experience but he can’t afford to take chances like that in a 20 horse field.

Tee Tee L 'appears' not to have the knock out punch needed after say a mile sixteenth + ticks. As a colt, regardless of jockey last trip or how that race shook out.  But, got to admit, Sakatoga Stables picked up Funny Cide for 75K + Tee Tee L for 110K; not too shabby. A worker bee group of friends who pooled their money, went to the Derby from the hotel in a rented school bus as the underdogs. Now, still punching their way in the Derby dream while American Pharoah owner galloping in cash depletion.

Agree Dogs.He was able to swing around horses in the Holy Bull.I’m not sure he has enough in the tank to pull this off in the Derby

Colt:Authentic..

https://www.kentuckyderby.com/prep-races/sham

Colt has 5× Derby winning trainer Baff Man. Notice the seat Van Dyke has in combination with his colt. If maintained in the Derby could account for 3 seconds saved as jockey's contribution. More??And shortening final time. Colt's stretch run says Mr. Bob should roll out ear plugs and shades in the next due to the erratic stretch run. Perhaps crowd held up hand made signs reading:'Free Hay". Horse galloped out.

I don’t know what he beat in there but there is definitely room for improvement.

The colt, Authentic, has a lot of homework and seasoning to bone up on with Baffert. Yet, he's his own man (colt) taking it all in with sight seeing the crowd and dancing 'the slide'. 

BTW..The Ruffian movie, knowing a true story and the match race ending had the Dogs teary eyed. Watched it twice. (d)

Dogs, long time no hear! If the Derby were running this weekend i think my super would consist of Thousand Words

     Tiz the Law

     Three Technique and

     Sol Volante........Might need tweeking down the road. Scabbard burned enough of my funeros, done betting him a change of scenery might help.

Can't watch Ruffian, ending bothers me....hate seeing that!!!
