I do also.

It was a fine running of horses there at Pimlico. If I could had my first three in the right order.  I just watched the replay from the overhead cam. "I'll have another", exploded in the last 1/8 like it was outfitted with Nitro.  

from Daily Racing Form

Just like he did in the Kentucky Derby, I'll Have Another ran down Bodemeister in the late stages of Saturday’s $1 million Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and is now in position to become the first horse since Affirmed to sweep the Triple Crown should he win the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 9.


Arcey, I believe that was Jockey Joel Rosario on Creative Cause, who's brother a Policeman in Dominican Republic. Died earlier today in a automotive accident. Not known if in the line of duty or not.

It weren't. Phooey. Maybe Iowa will be better this afternoon.

Heck of a photo-finish with the horses.

I can remember a couple times seeing two of them hook wheels and wrecking. I have seen them singlie flip over and get in a mess with the horse.  I seen mule races where the mule would just stop and sit down and the bike get hit. The trotter races are almost as bad as Chuckwagon races.

The complete 2012 Belmont Stakes post positions and morning line odds follow:

1 - Street Life, 12-1
2 - Unstoppable U, 30-1
3 - Union Rags, 6-1
4 - Atigun, 30-1
5 - Dullahan, 5-1
6 - Ravelo's Boy, 50-1
7 - Five Sixteen, 50-1
8 - Guyana Star Dweej, 50-1
9 - Paynter, 8-1
10 - Optimizer, 20-1
11 - I'll Have Another, 4-5
12 - My Adonis, 20-1


The three to watch in this race. There are some tempting odds though. I think a little ole'$2. wager on Ravelo's Boy might be interesting.  Some video's earlier "I'll have another" looks healthy and strong in it's morning works.

That's the way it will probably go. However they are horses and you never know their maybe a ringeer in one of those gates.

I just woke up and found the info on "I'll have another" this is sad news for the O'Neils and the team. Tendon injuries on those type horses is usual the end of their running.

Time to re think the betting.
