Just watched a couple of the races the Humana .  A Grade 1 race had a really good horse pull away and out run them all.  The track looked good and the sky there were clear, I can say that for this area at the moument.

mestiza letty, I think G/Jerry Bailey read your pick's and went with them also

Bodemeister went farther than I thought he would.  It was a good race for the Young Jockey the Horse and the First time Derby Trainer. Even if he's a canuk ;D  If Union Rags had a different name I may have looked at better.

I'll Have Another, moves to the top of the winners list

Even though Bodemeister didn't win it was good to see Mr Baffert up right though it look liked he was struggling taking the walk over.

Since Brimstone Island is not running, I have scientifcally picked the winners. Their names on the dart board.


Here is the way I see the finish to lay out at the Preakness.  The Bookies are still saying Bodemeister. I just don't see this horse going the extra distance.

Creative cause

I'll have another

Went the day well

Bodemeister
