Hi Dogs,   was it Stay Thirsty in 2011


From: Oldbettowin


Lol Stay Thirsty my friend!

 Four eventual KD winner co-owners each write a potential name for their colt on pieces of paper while dining and asked their waitress to draw one name out of a cowboy hat.


From: Oldbettowin


Sounds like about as good a method as any.

Non other than California Chrome!!

In regards to your beer question, Stay Thirsty was the obvious answer. Up here in Buffalo, NY we have West Coast IPA on some of the brew pubs. That one came to mind first.

I'm in Syracuse. I just learned today about

If a horse is described as having “chrome”, it means that the horse has many white markings. ... Get Stormy and Talismanic are both good examples of bay horses with chrome. These stallions have a big blaze and white on all four of their legs. All in all, "chrome" just means that

Seattle Slew as I mentioned elsewhere didn't look like much earlier as a baby. 

Nobody wanted Zenyatta.........too big and gangly.

That's such a great one.

My favorite is when MAX SECURITY ran 1st race for #16K someone actually claimed another colt out of the race 

Joke of the day: That person is such a dumb handicapper..thinks DQ means Dairy Queen.

The Obvious...EQ Delta colt. Gets 9 in 1:48 + change. And looks like he could run in the following race after the one he just won.

Segment (by ranking *alphabetical 1st, then by performance) remainder of field who can get to 9fl and is not quitting. Who .can't get to 9 fl. YES 9.If they can't get 9 at 1:48i-ishy  What about 10 furlongs with 4 to 8 more pounds; a 20 gate; the longest 1/18 of a mile additional and jockey skill differential. No more Cal Borail services but NYRA crew best in the business and perhaps the best colony. Ever to date IMO.

1ST segment.  5 colts (rank them)

2nd segment 6

3rd.  5

4th. 4

*One should know every colt in the field by name and at least a concise thought.

Today Bourbonic is my three week conundrum /conundrum.

Is he a toss - beat me colt based on PP times and weighed against needs and capability to play and Pay on a vertical ticket. OR that connections are stellar; shrewd,cagy and tenacious: Mike Ripole owner/Pletcher/Kendrick jockey.

A flat bet only in a Derby is not my style. Watching Watching 20 colts shake out for 2 minutes plus... and against a ticket construction...emotional and wallet splendor

Dear Diary. I write about each horse/colt each day..18.5 days left as of April 12. And return to read my notes 

EQ is undefeated in 5 starts has Goldolphin, Brad Cox and a DQed Kentucky Derby Win jockey. 

Colt's  race ability performance numbers went up each time.

Not likely to bounce. 

What I see key is: in Blue Grass it (perhaps) appeared that the colt was rode as if it were the Derby distance and the BG was a calculated run drill,  a dry run to the 9 furlong marker. 9 fl is where it all shakes and bakes out 

Handicap Hoofnote:  crunch one's selections and set the ticket construction. (Exotic)..

Don't remodel the ticket; 2nd guess it, or 2nd guess yourself. Or be persuaded by others. 

Read and look out for anecdotal information
