I'm one proud Marylander today... El Areeb (based at Laurel) proved the Jerome was no fluke and Irish War Cry (based at Fair Hill) served notice to all the Derby wannbe's. Congrats Graham Motion, Cathal Lynch, Trevor McCarthy and Fergal Lynch (regular rider of Irish War Cry). #MDStrong

Interesting Mark. Care to expand on that? Just curious... any comparisons?
Very nice article Averie especially containing facts that others wouldn't bother to uncover. Only time will tell if El Areeb can get to CD on the first Saturday in May... here's hoping he stays sound and your "feeling" is correct again.
Love the KY Derby talk... re: El Areeb.... happy for my home state based colt as I saw his potential back in September making him my BEST BET (Sept. 30; see link) yet in true GQ racing luck, he finished second that day... http://www.theracingbiz.com/2016/09/30/the-gq-approach-laurel-september-30/
For a G3 Sprint, this event lacks enough early speed to allow #8 - X Y Jet (9-5) to easily go gate-to-wire. A price horse who could blow-up what sets up to be a Chalky Tri is #7 - Rockinn On Bye (15-1).
Overall, the entire card is one of the best at Laurel Park in decades! Giddy-Up!
Geez Joey... that 1 male would be me! Found has made a career out of facing the boys, beat them in winning the most prestigious turf race in the world (l'Arc de Triomphe) and did the same in last years BC Turf (which I picked her as well).
So it's rather unfair to think my female colleagues are picking her solely based on her gender.
But nice observation at that! GL this weekend.
Thanks for the great analysis Laurie. I'm liking Yellow Agate, Sweet Loretta and Valadorna.
Can't help but wonder if Chasing Aces' injury was brought on by that "miss step" when it appeared he ducked in towards the opening in the rail / chute shortly after the start?
Not trying to speak for "Chicken Dinner" but I would think the comment "... I like the way you structure your bets" aka "betting strategy" was because in my 3 bets, I wasn't betting against myself. All 3 had the possibility, if not probability, to be cashed.
Looking at your 3 bets ($36), your best case scenario is ONLY ONE can possibly win. Same with the structure of the second set of 3 wagers you provide... AT BEST you can only cash one of them.
