  • icyhotboo · If the odds pemit I'm going to throw in a 3/6/8 tri box. UR just needs a prep and EP needs 1st or 2nd, #3 has a lot of upside 2nd off layoff and EP being the fastest horse with about the same LP. Michael Matz may just be there for a tune up for KD even though the purse is big. On a personal note sadly I didn't win the lottery, I didn't even want 1st second for a million - taxes would've been just fine. I think I need another job due to the fact every doctor I go to has at least 3 friends who want to shake my hand for a couple hundred. · 748 days ago ·

Colizeo took plenty of action when he easily beat last year's Belmont Stakes hero Drosselmeyer in Tampa Bay's Challenger Stakes last time. Those two meet again in Sunday's Grade 3 Skip Away, and the 9.5 furlong event at Gulfstream Park also attracted Jackson Bend. Todd Pletcher's improving colt Coli...Read More
