  • azeri1 · She's a large strong filly, and what a beautiful grey she is too. I am hoping that Friday running in the Eight Belles she'll get some of the respect she deserves and maybe even make it to the winner's circle. She deserves a win and she has certainly earned her due. I agree that you can't help but root for her when you know her story. · 69 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · @yukichan, last year I used to have access to a lot of free sites I used for boxing, soccer, and other sports. My PC crashed and my favorites along with it. I'll see if any of my friendshave those addresses as you need more than one most times because if you get to many using it will freeze. can't promise anything but even though I retired from poker playing I still used to like to kill time on line playing small stakes until OUR government decided we weren't mature enough to decide for orselves. Oh well gotta take what comes. · 796 days ago ·

Champion Informed Decision and multiple Grade 1 winner Court Vision are two of many stars among the entrants for five graded stakes on the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) undercard on Saturday at Churchill Downs.Read More
  • medlocke · Informed Decision looked to me like a mare that had a little bit of lay-off rust in losing her first start of 2010 at Keenland in the Vinery Madison Stakes. Informed Decision had been undefeated over synthetic surfaces until her recent 3rd place finish. But she's one of those rare one's that can perform equally well over a conventional dirt surface as well. She won the 09' Human Distaff in the slop at Churchill Downs, if you'll remember. A lot of horses are slow starters after a lay-off. Gio Ponti springs to mind, losing his first start of 2010 at Tampa Bay Downs to Karelian. But came back in his second start to run an amazing Dubai World Cup, finishing 4th, but having to go extremely wide to get that. So it was a very quality run for him. I expect Informed Decision to bounce back with a win on Derby day. IMO. · 1532 days ago ·
