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.
With 4 scratches in the Fla. Derby that moves Ete Indian up from post 12 to post 8
post 12 sucks at this distance on this track, IMHO hes a contender now for the win.
post 12 itm contender..
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.
I chalked it off as a typo. Predictive spelling sucks, eh?
In earlier years I used a laptop with big keys. Now I peck on my cell "phobe..tiny keys.
Urge everyone to mask up. Kinda like our shadow roll
The Road to the 146th Kentucky Derby has posted a Detour to September as all know due to the draconian disease world wide. I just happened to have had the TV on this weekend and the station was showing a live NASCAR race.
The point was the leader ran over a part of the track, the asphalt came loose, causing a gaping hole, and the loose portion struck the front of the car. Well it was in the middle of the race, so all drivers and cars got to stop and take a break. Drinks and sweat towels for drivers, not sure the rules about touching the cars. Guess it would be like leaving the saddle and weights on a horse race
Point. The Derby delay in May can't be adjusted like this. I learned the leader would be restored to his lead spot. LOL if they could do this musical chairs in a racing hinder episode.
Seems to me now the tipping point race will be the July 18th (1 1/8 miles easy to remember) Haskell Invitational. It's a mil purse and a win and in Breeders Cup scholarship. There is great short odds that the race will be a go. They need to reopen the relatively new sports book.
Also a factor is on this flagship day Derby trainers may have others runners to ship for purses over gross 2 million.
Example, Sagatoga Stable and Barclay Tagg did not run in the 2yo juvey with Tiz the Law in that Nov. Schooling for forward looking chances in the 2020 May Derby. I think we"ll see Tiz The Law conspicuously absent for example. Then sort out the field of up to 14 for their Derby chances.
Hoofnote: in the stretch, unless he is far up the track Derby Day 2020, Tiz the Law will have crowd issues. (d)
2020 estimates ..Louisville, in September, during 8 rainfall days, typically, 3.1" (77.5mm) of precipitation is accumulated. Not an on the track figure.
The temperature Dogs' Delta is mid 70s. But could range 90ish to high 60s..Sixties temp on a clear day and souped up maintained track provide for winner owner speed finish glory. I always prefer a slug out Mother Nature's PPish H2O Kentucky Derby cattle run. Give me a round of jockey mud goggles 20 × 9 sets of jockey blinkers (nine).
Going year 2019 Derby betting fav has won the Kentucky Derby the last six times. And that began 13 years after the fav lost on the first Saturday in May for 20 straight losses. And the favorite was DQed as you know last year, Maximum Security and Country House installed the winner.
Again my Delta antennas Up race will be the Haskell Invite 3 yo contingent vs a vs Derby prospects and the rest of the card 'not too shabby.
