In early races on  Big Card - non bigger than the Derby - a player pretty much doesn't  have to pass on races. Gasing up the bankroll.

I don't care for 5. 51/2 turf though. And obviously when one goes to say Saratoga for live (I can't wait) play em all and picks. I also usually Dutch a live ticket in the last leg.

Anywho...I opened up with the 1st race, walked into OTB strokes before the Starter would  release the electromagnet Starting Gate and took a look at the Form...and made a one factor decision having jammed my eyes on a nano second of the field and knowing the line of one day shooters would be reciting their ticket calls like a PhD Chemist in Organometallics defending an oral presentation for a Nobel Prize.

My nano decision was: What the hell is Lukas doing here!

He’s pretty much retired at CD.

WTH was he doing in the race conditions. Wayne knows best.

And he was in a race he thought he could win and Preak prepping.

As I said in a previous thread, I think Ram should be the favorite for last place.  However, given that you apparently like him, I will be including him in a couple of my exotics on the bottom :)

Article in Paulick report had Wayne saying Preakness a fun race and place to be even if you don't win.  And during work colt lacked energy. Mile breeze.

I stepped out for Wood and nobody here paid it any attention. 

The Preakness even the sage trainer is not in concert with me.

Then again, Wayne and dah boys play a lot of poker in their oft time.

He was saying he probably isn’t going to win but might get a piece.  Maybe.  He didn’t sound very confident about that either really.

Having spent countless seasons at the OP meet, and observiing Lukas entries, he is definitely one of those "you can't win if you don't play" types. 

In our OP contests, many of us have taken to using his horses as longshots when we are behind in our contest scores.  :) 

And yes about the poker.  (As well as the slot machines!)  

The way I've seen Lukas in these later years is that he is "enjoying" life, keeping his toe in the game, loves being on his pony and in the atmosphere of the business he has spent a lifetime in, esp. the big races......and if his horses are well and/or not sick or innured, he will enter them.    Like he did with Optiimizer his horses run a lot of races.    

He is quite the raconteur, in every way and loves his "fans".
