Baffert got beat in the San Vicente. Mandella with Forbidden Kingdom.

I think that was my strategy at 7 furlongs, love to see Pappa Mandella win a 3 yr old race

against  , he was my pick.

Bet the straight exacta and tri for a few bucks and hit it.
number 6 Pletchers horse was a beauty, he finished 3rd

I didn't like the way the rider on the pony cutting in front of Emmanuel

early in the warmup while jogging, I thought their front legs would touch

and it could of been the camera angle.

I was not home, so I missed the race. I'll have to catch the replay. I'm glad he cleared that hurdle. Hopefully, Emmanuel learned something. He is a fast horse, so given the fractions, he was able to rate. I still need to see if he'll be as willing if headed.

EDIT: Well I just saw the race. Emmanuel ran about 1/16 of a mile. The rest of the time he was in an easy gallop. When challenged late, he accelerated quickly away. A stake race will be next, probably the Tampa Bay Derby.

Corruption is rampant in stock wagering ("investing"), yet many new people enter the game

Part of it is, as Smarty says, due to the Baffert effect.....but also, there is not the same circuit as in the past, especially since the closing of Hollywood Park.  The maiden purses are much smaller compared to SAR as well.  And as races don't fill, owners have to make a decision to ship. 

It is sad, as I grew up going to SA, HPark, and Del Mar, with big crowds and fields

They did run 1-2, but I didn't see enough to think that either are ready for the TC trail.....the winner may improve, or that race/workout was just to keep him fit, and he'll be the best in the TB Derby.  Still too low a price in the futures to have me interested

& All...It's free to watch Tic Tok.

Watch it and muse if they/Next Gen would have a propensity to take an interest in horse racing, on line horse betting and even learning the fundamentals. This 'be US and world racing.
