Full to Temple City.
Knock, knock: The TC is dead. Pimlico will be dozered in favor of the casino hub complex at Laurel. Remember: THE TC was a gimmick invented by some sports writer, over cocktails. The Breeders' Cup attracts the world, as it should be. (Much of this but, not all, is tongue in cheek.) I love following the 3YOs as they march to CD. This could be the least interesting Preakness in history. I'll bet the under-card, under my umbrella.
Not sure where cugel, the mildly clever is coming from. Take a look at history, when the stars raced 2-3 times a MONTH.
Named after Taylor Swift?????
I tabbed DH in her first start. Loved the breeding. 6.5f turf at SA and then I saw the connections. Glenn Hill, Proctor and Stevens. OMG! AND I got 5.5-1. Quoting Trevor in deep stretch: DH looks like she just jumped in at the 8th pole. So; when I saw the duel I had hoped for, on Monday, and Gary and his new knee lagging far back, I was confident I would get a show. When he angled to the outside, coming out of the far turn, I knew it was over. She is a tiger but, wants to be outside. I too am glad she got her Graded win.
I saw an early copy of the eyeball picture and told my wife: He was looking to see that he had put Firing Line away. 'Not today, big fella.'

No works, last 10 days, per Equibase. His half brother goes in today's 4th, at DMR.
For fans of California Chrome: Cliff trained Lucky Pulpit in his first 13 races.
Was lucky enough to ferret this gem out, on 1/26. 5.15 DPI, good works and Stevens/Proctor. 5.50 to one, R U kidding me?
TWENTY-THREE shakes then disappeared from the afternoon track.
