'Tis The Law', kinda is the other, in that his owners were initial two Triple Crown races winners with Funny Cide. A gelding, he was unable to provide his not wealthy profiled connections with breeding monies over some decades.

The Gov made the count 2. Now owners/Zayat Stables of TC winner ridgling American Pharoah fame went from the upper crust of money in racing  to where the connections above are more solvent.

As I preach to rookie biz owners you can't spend profit; only just the cash. Ahmed Zayat became way too aggressive in horse racing, breeding, and business stake holders financials.

It's great to see the modest owners get a leg up.  

My well wishes to you and all during this trying time. (d)

What really got me was by accident I came across a red corpusle equine pundit who ranks Maxfield #2 in his Scoobie Do-ins.

Hi Husk...since I have been texting people by cell phone in general, I rely on the predictive speller in the word software. 

My daughter and friends again say I'm cryptic in my bullet messages.

One thing for sure, the pandemic is putting a crimp on my style.

That's the value of your Delta horse. The prohibitive fav wins.then...in a Tri you or one wants the long shot to hang on for 2nd and the Delta seals the deal for hitting third. That was healthy Tri.

In thread/item # 11 here,  Dogs professes and predicts..it's actually just a humble feel: that today's Florida Derby winner Tiz The Law on the credibility of chances that his owner and now same trainer who won their first (Funny Cide) Derby..will have consecutive wins with Funny Cide with Tizzy.  Also believe the jockey will not rise to the elete jockey level needed.
