You're a rock star, Pedigreestar! Hope you had the exacta, at least....not bad at 20-1. And your long shot, Enforceable, wasn't too far off the board.
The 8K super was very hittable, and I'm a little upset with myself for the miss. Had the other 3, and played 4 shots in the 3rd spot, but somehow I left off Mr. Big News, even though I thought enough of him to get him at 150-1 in the futures.
Oh well....only have to wait 6 months for the next chance!
DERBY. Heads up. Paper tickets with # 10 are refund tickets in the Kentucky Derby.
Digital it should be automatic to account
Glad some of my tickets paid out.
You wouldn't be lieing if you said you took tickets back to the window.
I was outside doing a cigar when the horse flipped and the whole thing escaped me.
On Sunday someone mentioned it.
Had $40 plus in scratch returns.
Broke the guy's hand
ART Collector running in the Preakness Oct 3 for sure. (not a race I ever play anymore, but never interested me that much)
3 horses ran further than the KY Derby winner (acccounting for ground loss) Trakkus:
Same here Prince....My wife had Honor, Tiz and Authentic for the tri box, totally overlooked Big News! Took half my bets back on 1000 Words in scratch tix. Yeah, 8 months will fly by quickly unless the Chinese virus hangs.
Dogs, congrats on your call on Tiz....I'll never doubt the guru of the dirt oval again!!!....LOL
Had $65 in scratch tix on 1000 Words. Guess i would have overplayed my hand a little on him!
Should be an interesting BC Classic.
The factor that I have brought up in the Diaries over the years is that somehow...when Johnny Vee picks-up a mount due to changing regular rider circumstances...he's now won his 2nd Derby like that replacing Smith + Prat. His first Derby win was replacing Robby A. aboard Animal Kingdom. And as the default jockey/replacement in the 2012 G1 Met mile Johnny Vee replaced reg jock who had broke his hand. Won wiring field.
Perhaps there is some mathematical geometrc trajectory that the even near the spacial start from gate 17 area to the first turn causes..something?
E=MC2 EQUINES=20 Mounts @ Churchill squared. Maybe minus 17.
I don't do voo doo... and as Sinatra sings..You do the voo doo that you do so well.
I like a full Kentucky Derby field of 20. A full maduro.Real beer. No light mayonnaise, decaf coffee.
Lacked jazzy. Didn't swing. No top. Middle. Bottom.
First time for everything.
Hoofnote: It seems that after a number of my posts, the next post has been deleted. Send me an email. Really wonder what was said that gets deleted.
I can't tell you the number of times I spent an hour+ emparting my fact checked info to my recall..and the stewards took me down. Deleted message. Guess when I finish up down the stretch Used too much wip. So I abbreviate like use Lookin at Lee underneath and wheel.please.
And rarely get into the underbelly of racing. I did come to the defense of John Veitch, Steward at Churchill who was vindicated and restored whole. Steve Assmusen as well in the undercover episode. And my heartfelt prayers for his assistant who committed suicide over the ordeal.
Social media has a terrible censoring affect on the written word. And the spoken word will always be more powerful.
