Do you think that if Upstart was to defeat Pharoah in the Haskell, that 90 years from now folks will wonder if that's how the words meaning was coined?

In another of Chad Brown's weekly statements today, he says Lady Eli continues to progress in her recovery from laminitis. She is showing "excellent" hoof growth and is able to graze for 30 minutes daily. He says she has a weekly list of goals that she is continuing to achieve at this point. BH has the article. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/93274/lady-eli-showing-improvement-from-laminitis
Does anyone know how much the winners purse is now that Monmouth increased the total from 1.0 to 1.75? I know the winner got 600,000 before I'm guessing it's 1 million now?

About Me

Meet Bryan Brinkmeyer – Chicago, IL


Growing up across the river from the Bluegrass State I was able to spend a lot of summer days at Ellis Park, Henderson, KY. 


Likewise, the first Saturday in May was always a celebrated family event. In 2000, I made my inaugural Kentucky Derby appearance and since, I have made it an annual tradition because there’s no other city, or weekend, in the racing world like Louisville, KY on Derby Day. 


Although the story of a Kentucky Derby winner is legendary, a champions trail is what The Kentucky Derby Post is all about. The coverage begins when Juvenile season starts and continues until the field is set, the picks are in and the roses are earned.
