I LOVED Brown Almighty's win! With his ears pricked and all...looked maybe little unsure once he got in front but very excited to see more of him!!! Very exciting racing coming up at AP...can't wait!!
CDH...you can't win it unless you're in it!!! ;) Those wete some pretty interesting stats too, did ya map it all out on the white board? Florent is def a fave in the jockey dept and Silver Max is one you could just never say enough good about!!
A Johnny V and UR union is indeed a TC spoiler waiting to happen! I think he's got as good a shot at 1 1/2 as most. In his trouble trips he's just getting going as the race is ending. Going to be zero sleep June 8th for me, too!
Way to wrap it up CDH! I LOVED Report Cards win, A+ effort! River Bear looks the part and showed it on the track too. Way to bring home a 50-1 too Rosemary WOW!!!
I'm gonna Slamit down on #14 and Tim Ice :)
CDH...newest blog....K O A B D!! <3 the great news!! My exotics track record is about like yours but check even I'd be all in on a 50 cent pick 4!! Also WOW on the $2.1 mil handle 3 days straight at Hawthorne..def a very big deal and they for sure have to be doing something right not to mention the field sizes too!! Finally I get all the diehard racing ppls reaction to Hansen getting his "hair did" for the Illinois Derby to some degree, but if its something first and foremost harmless to the horse and will draw more attention to racing and for the charity it will support then I am all for it!!! Another great read CDH, thanks!!
Ok RBFF, CDH KOABD...I have to say thanks for the pre blog warmup! Now that I got that in, I'm ready to work! So I think that Hawthorne's spring meet sched sounds really promising for some great stakes action!!! Most anticipated by far for me is the Illinois Derby!!! No question, although last years rendition is going to be very hard to top after watching Joe Vann and Florent Geroux cruise to an impressive victory!! Ok so when is the call to post? I'm ready...right now!
So, I'm alot late to the party I know....but...WOW coolest blog illustration I've ever seen!!! Great job @Marcy Leonard ! :) CDH...KOABD!!! Another great blog ofcourse...If I had a vote for CHOTY I'd have gone Giant Oak too. So well travelled...raced against the best on all diff types of surfaces...no question the best in The Donn...and I will miss him on the track!
Well, for me no question...in the field of next race track I've never been to before visit, there is a very chalky fave...Arlington Park!!! If I have to (unfortunately) pick just one that's it! Also CDH I think that you are right about people that knock Chi racing...I think they have a preconceived notion about it but nothing to base it on. Once they went and spent any time there (or just educated themselves on it) at all they'd be singing a whole new tune. Maybe go a lil something like....'We're in the moneyyyy....we're in the moneyyyyy!!!' Another great one from you, as always!
Epic blog post CDH!! Way to wrap 2011...I'm going to AP next year if its the only track I get to!! Agreed on "people of racing" that they are the best ever and yes what a tremendous loss....Tim Reynolds. We also have the same fave blog...Tim Ice!! Look forward to following him in 2012 along with that CDH blog ;) Aside from those I also look forward to seeing how the 2012 3 y.o. crop turns out!
