I was thinking they would get the horse to the new track to get acclimated and get works over it.  But Saratoga is horse heaven.  Quiet, cooler, nice routine.

No kidding? Yes, Saratoga is a step from the Adirondacks.  :)

I just hope that Tiz is a good shipper with no real work at Churchill Downs. Still, he (that is Tiz) looks like a monster, and I want him to continue his crusade. However, you know, the Derby is a weird race. 20 horses? I have lost track of this point, but will there be spectators allowed in? There is speculation there will not be 20 horses. Oh, I think there will be, even if they are lower points horses.

Tiz looks like a beast, and the best 3 year old but the Derby is a horse of a different color, so to speak: Even if there isn't 20 horses, there will be a lot

more than Tiz has faced so far and maybe spectators. The Derby is a stampede.

Remember how great Barbaro did? That is what I hope for Tiz: he has the engine

Churchill Downs to hold no more than 23,000 guests for the Derby, no general admission or infield this year, temperature checks will also be done, however, they say temps of 100 or higher prohibited from entering. What? So you can go in with a 98 or 99 temp???? Really?

Yes. If you have a fever you are sick with SOMETHING, so you don’t want to pass that on either!

23,000 is quite a reduction from what.... typically around 150,000 guessing.

Wonder how long they will wait to make a decision on Breeders’ Cup.
