See comments in #12 above.

And on Derby day was noted that JJ Castellano in race prior to Derby JJ was Back. And likely a player in the Kdy.

Following the race the interviewer on horse back even noted that JJ was winning with smaller less known stables.

That's going to change and JJ will be as it's said by jocks "tie-ing up a lot of horses" /mounts.

The time, for a tidy purse, nearly 1:50 should can be replicated by $60 claimers.

Florence Geroux on the fav #9 is not a regular at the Big Sandy. And chased the #7 in a slow six furlongs. Then JJ knew when to ride and whip in the final moments.

When JJ took the roses at the presentation, thoughts of NYRA jockeys and of those on the Big Days elsewhere were thinking..this guy is going to tie up a lot of horses.

Re: Blackeye Susan Friday


 Royal Delta in 2011 is the only favorite to win in the past 17 runnings of the race.

Baffert enters with 6/Oh fav. 1st time leaving her Calf. digs.

Idea for using a few here in last leg of Pic 3. 

Or 2 hard in double into Preak.

Chad Brown has chances.

Although the purse at a buck and a half fairly legitimizes the G1 Middle Jewel fixture, they could take a lesson from other big day promoters and offer a flat or sliding scale for anointed invitees extras. Albeit the late fee overall rules.

The hangup is the late fee. 

See video above: PERFORM is a supplemental colt at $$150,000. Third to break even. Eat expenses. Strange, could have been in for cost of set of tires: $600.

Gate # 6. Historic best. Shuggy trains.

Jockey faces world's greatest from basically the NYRA colony, yet his tactical move in last good as any.

Reminds me of last year's Derby when Epicenter looked the winner, and up the rail..

Irad Ortiz Jr, Castellano, Saez jockey edge. Some Peak a boo riding from Johnny Vee and Rosario in an 8 colt field. No value save using some in a Horizontal. Catches in early legs.

Anything higher than, or like even money, too much money on the table, strange things happen.

2023 Derby winner was  (obviously) the colt, yet Castellano has to repeat his newly, timely re-gained skills on Derby card. 

The music performers act purse goes at $2.5 to $6 mil when they perform their musical tracks. Great band, covers a multitude of ears.
