Closest i got to a super for a derby bet was in 2010. Had the top 3, Super Saver, Ice Box and Paddy O'Prado boxed, should have played a trifecta but no of course not, had to get greedy a played a super with.......Jackson Bend. We all know how he placed...12th i believe. Couldn't even tell you who rounded out the super that year.
I lost 2010 nowhere near it.
Lost 2011 who thought Animal Kingdom from grass to Derby then some more.
Lost 2012..Needed Kent to get 2nd was 3rd.
2012 - 2018 got em.
2019 had a win ticket if my runner was put up to 3rd..went up to 4th
2011 who thought Animal Kingdom from grass to Derby then some more.
In our weekly weekend contest at that time using fun$$, I had $90 to win on Animal Kingdom for a tidy $1,971 return. Timtamphilo was the only other who cashed on him with a $4 win ticket that returned $87.60.
Think it was Make Music for Me.For some unknown reason I didn’t use Ice Box
That was a score my man. Below to share.

Other ..Jockey Club set limits on a season breeding.
Pandemic fall out will cause fall out to some present minor owners or eliminate newcomers.
Track handle perhaps take hits. I might have to dip into my Communion money.
Claiming races will up purses.
Kentucky Derby Sept 5
Preakness Oct 3
Maybe with the derby switch to September that karma will change?
Like they say "change is good"
Didn't make any music for me...lol
It was a muddy derby that year and i used the mudders with the best pp's.
Jackson Bend was my personal fave that year and used him.
