I was thinkin the same thing seein it through the horses eyes.  How bad can that be?  and he won't end up like Barbaro.

Dullahan odd's had a big swing since yesterday's unfortunate news. Now 9 to 5 from 5 to 1. Apparently the Bookies woke up to see there was a contender in the feild.

Better to stud than a shot and hauled off by a front end loader ::)
I might be slow, but I'm mostly accurate.....

Dullahan got "boxed" out a couple times but that's racin'....

Glad Union Rags has enough gas at the end...Paynter ran a good race an' Smith says he shouldn't have left a wee hole ::)

I could have drove a hour and change to watch and bet at the track in Charletown WVa or over to  Laurel Maryland. If I really wanted to gamble I could have done it on line. Maryland opened their first casino this past week and it's been causing Traffic nightmares at night.  Great infrastructor planning ::) :o


Not long before the Calagry Stampede, maybe I can find a Chuckwagon ot 3 to bet on.

Ain’t gonna have gamblin’ ‘ere ‘til the good ole boys from out west what congregate in Richmond get bribed with a hunk of the profits. We watch while the cash goes out of state.

Would say I hope the race this afternoon goes as well as the Belmont. But, it’s Pocono. Odds’d be a thousand ta one. Could have a decent finish with a late caution. The rest of it’ll be a snooz-fest…………..

Haven't heard too much on the one opened in Cleveburg now or the Toledo one. Covered pretty extensively the week it opened and now nothing, lR ::)

Buck, didn't CinCity or Columbus one get approved for a casino?  I am thinking Toledo will do the best of the 3 areas. Canadians get a extra tug on the one arm quarter bandit per dollar.
Arcey your right about Virginia. I know there several millionaires ready to dumb investment money into Colonial Downs

I need a better website to stream Nascar on Sunday evenings.

What’s so freakin’ stupid ‘bout the whole thing here is the same politicians that foul it up are watchin’ their own damned constituents make day trips to the West Virginia casinos.

Poll run in the paper askin’ readers what they’d do with the Norfolk Waterside property downtown overwhelmingly went with casinos. A group of hotel CEOs from the ocean front go to Richmond with casino proposals ‘n get doors slammed in their collective faces. All they're askin' for is slots I wouldn't walk 'cross the street ta play but thousands would.

They were slick with the lottery. Said it was goin' ta education 'n it does. Redirect the education money replaced by lottery money ta the general fund where they can waste it as they please.

Anyone want a choo-choo ride?

Livin in KC saw em build a horse track in Kansas but casinos were verboten.  Missouri allowed river boat casinos as long as they paid ta have a bunch a bill boards put up on the highway bout gambling addiction.  Horse track was a failure but the boats cross the line er still boomin.

Well the Derby snuck up on me or I am just getting slower every year.   After 7 Years I seen Gary Stevens is back on top of a mount (Oxbow)instead of going with a sure thing$$$ in the announcers booth. I hope he sobered up from the HBO TV show Lucky where he played a drunk jockey.


Here is tomorrow's field

Oxbow          30:1
Revolutionary  10:1
Golden Soul     50:1
Normandy      12:1
Invasion
Mylute           15:1
Giant Finish     50:1
Goldencents     5:1
Overanalyze    15:1
Palace Malice   20:1
Lines of Battle  30:1
Itsmyluckyday 15:1
Fallen Sky       50:1
Verrazano        4:1
Charming        20:1
  Kitten
Orb                 7:2
Will Take         20:1
   Charge
Frac Daddy     50:1
Java's War     15:1
Vyjack           15:1
Fear the         50:1
   Kitten

Current odds from the AP internet source.

I like the way Giant Finish looks for a Longshot.

Revolutionary
Orb
Itsmyluckyday



I don't name them
