He covered the Met Mile, same track, same distance, 2.33 seconds faster. Guess he's losing it. Boy, he used to be fast, when he wanted. Now, I need to redirect my thoroughbred funds. It's between Liam's Map, Tonalist, Appealing Tale, American Pharoah, Keen Ice, Frosted, Wicked Strong, or Runhappy. Any inside information would be appreciated.
If the intent is not to bet him, then you can be more reassured that whomever you choose, with your elimination, you'll be one step closer to solving that question that you have already answered. One down, and one less.
That must've been a thrill to see Serena's Song on two occasions. If I could, I'd like to share with you the 2000 BC Juvenile Fillies story. When Caressing had won, there was a buzz In the crowd about the payoffs. The prior race saw another battle in the Distaff(coincidentally, another Lukas duo much like the '94 BC Juv Fillies) between Spain and Surfside, with Spain prevailing at 56-1. Then Caressing followed that up with a 47-1 score. The last race was the BC Dirt Mile, which would be won by favorite War Chant. But, what was mind boggling, was that the 2nd place horse, North East Bound, had led the entire stretch, before succumbing to the eventual winner. His odds were 40-1 on the toteboard. The owner of North East Bound, it was learned in the paper, had a $10 Pick 3 with All-All-Northeast Bound. He was so close to scoring a Pick 3 with 56-1/47-1/40-1. The payoff would've been astronomical, making the purse winnings looking minuscule!!!! Try and watch that race, realizing the potential payoff as he is driving to the wire.
The stirring stretch drive between Flanders and stablemate Serena's Song in 1994, and John Velazquez's first BC victory aboard 47-1 Caressing in 2000, both at Churchill, were awesome memories. Many more great ones are a comin'.
I believe that Mr. Lukas as shown remarkable resiliency. I believe that he has overcome tragedy, the display of sorrow over the loss of Landaluce; the near-tragedy of losing his son, Jeff, and rehabilitation; Union City, etcetera. Through all he's been through, and the deterioration of his own health, he remains strong. There is a love that he has for this sport, that probably defies all the critics.
Too small a sample, is indicative of lack of stamina(purpose for the question mark). Predictive, is foretelling a fortune. The little information provided is factual, which is after-the-fact.
Running line-Broke his maiden, and won the Arkansas Derby. Runner-up in the Derby and the Preakness. 6 races total. Great blood lines. Stamina?
I noticed one of those job trailers came in shortly after your post. It's good that a job poster can recognize someone who is in dire need of a job, 'cause prognosticating order-of-finish is not one of your main fortes. Possibly play the lottery. Numerology would be right up your alley. If that don't work, try "sticking" to a dart board.
And would his name be Bill Russell(Dodgers shortstop from yesteryear)? If so, he could double as center of the Boston Celtics basketball team.
