I think the winner won the Louisiana Derby.Wouldn’t be surprised if the Florida Derby provides the rest of the trifecta
those 2 races and I need to see more from Santa Anita and Today I can't remember who's entered in the Blue Grass!
The Winner of the Arkansas Running every other Race with Lasix is why I left him off my ticket knowing he was going to
be a Contender for the race, is that helping him. When is his next scheduled dose April 20th, is that within the rules, what a Joke.
If he beats me in May so be it, I don't think he will hit the board carring 126 pounds. toss
Maybe every contender can race every other race with Lasix, Right. Look how many Lasix free horses made the cut so far,
They will be on my ticket.
The two big races on Sat seemed to lack pace. I'd be interested in seeing the variant and figure for TP, that horse had a good time. Too bad the horse has never done well on dirt.
results message 735 Arkansas Derby, how we did. The winner Cyberknife I didn't Play on my ticket because He
raced with Lasix in his last, also last 4 races Lasix every Other race, not for me. No win bet, can't bet Cyberknife
Advantage in my view. had 2nd 3rd and 4th place.
Doppelganger yardstick: 8 lengths behind Winner, 5 3/4 lengths behind Forbidden Kingdom @ 8.5f last.

Results Message 740 Florida Derby see how our Cappin did.. Our Box hit the Tri.
I was worried about Classic Causeway his races were on Tampa Bay, that track is tough to figure
He backed up like he bled or flipped his Pallete. Charge It finished 2nd after hitting the Gate at the Start
in this 1st race Against winners and Stretching out, he drifted in the stretch, Took dirt up close and personal
and stayed within 2 lengths of the lead the whole race, thats a big deal for a newbe imo. 1 1/4 behind at finish.
the Winner ran good and is tough and keeps improving. Simplication and Pappacap ran the first 6f in 1.10.68
Kavod and Cyberknife 1.11.22 in the Arkansas.

According to Lynch,Classic Causeway came back fine and scoped clean.His status for the derby is up in the air at the moment.
If you get a chance,check out the Trakus info for the Florida Derby.The figures for Pappacap seem strange
Maybe its the track, Many horses over the years run good at Tampa and lousy anywhere else.
Its always tough to draw a line thru a race.
Thanks for the info I'll check Pappacap out and still no word on Classic Moment, I saw that
sight Dogs posted, you would think somebody in the racing industry would have a hot line set up..
I think the winner will come from there, possibly even the tri.
Smile Happy....Zandon.....Mo Donegal....Forbidden Kingdom...Messier....as the faves
Watching for McLaren Vale, Fenwick (may go in BG), and Volcanic as my shots. Perhaps Taiba too.
The only horse from the weekend preps I like to possibly hit the board is Charge It. I agree with your assessment, great first try vs. winners around two turns. See how he trains in the next month
Smile Happy is 17th with 30 pts, he needs points, Forbidden Kingdom with 50 pts will be in now
everybody else you listed needs points to get in and I haven't looked to see who besides Forbidden Kingdom
with enough points is running next week. The cream is coming to the top !
