They laughed at Columbus too!
Everyone I've seen around the Stakes Barn is wearing Rose Colored glasses.
Never said Mr. Z would win.
I trust my eyes... and I wrote what I saw in this blog. If I'm wrong, everyone will say "You're an idiot." but if I'm correct (about AP or Firing Line) I guarantee no one will say, "GQ wrote that..."
Danzig Moon can step up, but he is in same category as the other 3 (hard run in the Derby)... I was disappointed in what I saw this week at Pimlico from the Preakness runners in that NONE OF THEM gave me a "WOW" factor. Just my opinion.
Good points xxbigkidxx! I was right there with you as far as being WRONG w/ Frosted... it's not like we picked Upstart... like some famous capper who has his own Speed Figures. Did I just go there?!
The KY Derby is a very humbling race for the best jocks in the business, from coast to coast... Castellano and Bejarano come to mind sporting a big, fat goose egg, while the "1 for 1" Derby jocks are typically thought to be local journeymen.
Ronnie Franklin fits into that category as Spectacular Bid carried him the 1 1/4 miles on the first Saturday of May.
Bottomline: Ya gotta have the horse
I'm glad that my #1 Derby Contender got the 50 points, but disappointed he didn't show any fight to get by Upstart... THAT would have made me feel better than getting up put via DQ.
Yep! I pointed that out last year (good/bad year trend). 2015 should be my "off year". Therefore, Itsaknockout has no chance!
You read my mind! Both Metaboss and I Spent It were the last two to make the cut (Top 24), and here's why I used them...
I Spent It: That Saratoga Special race sticks in my mind
Metaboss: I'm also an administrator/member of Homeless Handicappers, though not one of the 40 "minority owners", I had to give some love to my HH "family".
