Maxfield’s people are noodling over the Belmont Stakes and the Grade 2 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on July 11 for his next and a 4th in a row win.

Hoofnote: I must confess Tiz the Law is a looker. As a 3 yr old one of the best I've seen. Confirmation, color, carriage, comportment.

Regarding no workout and the career end of Baffert trained Charlatan. Agree: AM workouts, even if all are breezes say a lot. True a bullet work on a day with say 60 or more runners is great signal for a runner. But lack of having a horse who needs, just like humans, to get outside, in the sun, stretch and run, have some fun tells a story.

Perhaps the runner is done.

Best always..enjoy the trip (d)

Yeah Yah! The weather news people on TV in NY State are nearly celebrities. The dynamics of weather are so ying yang.

I kinda changed my mind hoping for an aquafied surface. 

What's great is, here it is June and Dogs is ramping up for the TC races. Kinda like the TC is like a hot fudge sundae where the cherry is the last thing one eats. And when one thinks about most other sports..the championship or one big game comes at the end of the season run. I'm singing the classic music "September Song"...."And it's a long-long time (from the first Saturday) from May to September.....

More about Tap it To Win seems headed to Belmont Stks

Live Oak Plantation.

Trainer Mark Casse

Johnny Vee irons

$15,000 supplemental fee.  Would normally be (this race not normal) $50,000.

Race / Bel Stakes entries based on established category + money won in those races, and must be non restricted races.

Tap it to Win scopes out to be...just like...

Knicks Go 2018 BC Juvey.

Lookin at Lee - Derby

Closing Argument -Derby

Ami's Messa - Gal's BC dirt sprint 7 fl (2017)

All 4 above ran 2nd but were off the radar.

Ami's Mesa?....Doesn't jog the brain cells Dogs. I was very high on Knicks Go to get to the derby, hopefully this one will have something left in the tank come September.

I did blog and show my tri key with Amy's Messa in the 1st, 2 and 3rd hole. Coming into the race she broke a track record for 6.5 furlongs. The filly that ran 2nd to her that day beat Ami in their Breeders Cup next test....just needed a 1/2 FL more. She was Gold Bar at + 50/1  

As for Tap it To Win going strong and reaching the Sept Derby...I'm good with one race at a time 

Although Tap it to Win ran in Allowance race at and On the Belmont sand box last Thursday and carried 120 for the 8.5 furlongs, the colt registered a 139 + change and nearing the record. Bel Stakes is 1/2 furlongs longer. This near record race now has colt for Bel Stakes who

picks up 6 pounds. (d)

Time is real and counts in PPs and in jail.
