Louisiana Derby   Triple Crown

Started Mar-15 by princeofdoc; 1618 views.

From: princeofdoc


Love that this race is 1 3/16th......I'm going with the 2 talented new shooters:  Hot Rod Charlie and Run Classic.  I know Run Classic doesn't look like his pedigree will necessarily be comfortable going longer, but he looks strong to me.  Charlie needed to get away from Baffert colts in CA, could score here.  And Dallas Stewart's long shot might just explode the exotics :)

Thanks Dogs:

Furosemide was patented in 1959 and approved for medical use in 1964.[3] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.[4] In the United States, it is available as a generic medication.[1] In 2017, it was the eighteenth most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 29 million prescriptions.[5][6] It is on the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned drug list due to concerns that it may mask other drugs.[7] It has also been used in race horses for the treatment and prevention of exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage.

And to All (as was the last FYI All info)

When runners are in layup for several months they gain a lot of water body weight.  Edema.

To return horse on layoff to the track more quickly trainer(s) used Lasix to rid the edema/body water from the system.

Just as it is created for and prescribed for human use initially. And it was by chance the pulmonary side effects of the drug in a horse became in existence and thus further usage.

Called the chicken soup* for horse respiratory  conditions. 

*Not to be confused with milk shakes which are illegal, Dogs says kidding.

I like both your horses as well. I'm looking for a price in this race, but I may settle on O Besos who I liked going into the Risen Star. He was stretching out significantly from 6f, and if you look at it, did not run poorly. He had a wide trip all the way around, which took away his closing kick. With the added foundation, and perhaps a better trip, he could be right there.

Proxy for the win...Mandaloun for the place...Midnight Bourbon for the show!

$10 exacta box and $5 trifecta box.      Run Classic-Mandaloun- Hot Rod 


From: DogsUp


I'm sticking with Hot Rod Charlie as the Delta colt to be key in Tri.  Just an 8 gate event however. Joel Rosario rode him 1st time in last where he lost to 2nd placer by a credit card. Sideways. Bumped in stretch and was sandwiched between two colts going to wire. Tight compression.

(For California, the track was slow and ..colt was a neck from the winner. due to rain...Aqua in Calif!?) And Joel has worked him in AM drill.

The Hot Rodder was 94-1, 2nd place to Numro Uno Derby fav Essential Quality in their 2 yr old Breeders Cup Juvey session.
