Oh man. I think that was the year the grandstand toilets broke and everybody was inside because of the downpour outside.

What's worse was there was really no wind.




I have never been to SA, but I would think there is an even bigger difference between that and BEL if you know where I am going on this one.

Horse Shoes is something we don't cap very much . you would think in the 21st century there is the technology

that suggests the horse shoe to use on deep sandy Tracks, the Best for Churchill, S.A..

this is something I'm in the Dark about.

Creative Minister looks like he could be the horse here. His Preakness showed me room for improvement. On the downside, he’s the least fresh of the field as it will be his 3rd race in 5 weeks. And B Hernandez is not quite a top tier jockey. But given the flaws each other entrant has, he’s my top pick. Mo Donegal might be the most talented horse in the field, and should relish the distance, but has consistently had gate issues and has the wrong style as a stalker. That said, if I were to bet it, I’d probably use him on top as well. Rich Strike jumped up so much in the Derby, I expect regression but can see him as high as 2nd. Nest’s only flaw is her level of competition, it doesn’t look like the filly class is as fast this year. We the People had such a jump in his last race, he’s a toss for me. Barber Road somehow intrigues me, he looks to be moving in the right direction and could clunk up.

Looks like sonny's agent couldn't drum up more than 2 rides for him, other than his derby mount.  1 mount on Fri in a maiden on turf @1-1/16th.  And 1 mount at 6F on Sat at 6F.   Both compliments of Oscar Barrera.   Not suprised, knowing the colonies in NY.

There are three horses I would enjoy seeing hit the wire first.  Rich Strike, Barber Road and Nest.

In fact, I may make one play.  5 dollar exacta box of those 3.  Just to have a little action.
