"Rages" to Riches? One occurrence could be a simple typo, but two are mighty hard to stomach.
Almost. He got post 17. But he keeps Jon Court, and that's a big plus.
I am sooo impressed with the way Mike Harrington is training Creative Cause. I've liked the colt since I first saw him at two, but I didn't realize how carefully his trainer was teaching him until the last two races. In both races (with the skillful cooperation of jockey Joel Rosario) CC wasn't really asked until late, and the way he lengthened his stride after being switched back to his right lead may be the key to a win in the Kentucky Derby. May the racing gods keep him safe and sound until then (and after).
Trujillo, as good a rider as he is, was always "the other Elvis" to me. E.J. was my main man. It was easy to pay attention to Louisiana racing when E.J. was riding, and it will never be as interesting without him.
Sincerest condolences to St. George Farm, whose lovely mare Abuela collapsed and died after being pulled up in yesterday's Endeavour Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs. I was unaware of this until I read the chart. Does anyone have more details? Is jockey Jon Court okay?
