Take Charge Indy, Ron The Greek, Successful Dan, Pool Play
Thank you, Ace. I have always loved horse racing, and the thrill of picking a longshot is the ultimate challenge. I hope you were with me, when Princess of Sylmar rolled home. There are those that rely on a win pct. I would rather pick 1 longshot @ 35-1, than 3 chalks @ 5-2, out of 10. Though my win pct might be down, my ROI is the most important thing. Good luck to you today. Oh, and by the way, I'm a fan of yours. Thanks again for the acknowledgement.
If you decide that a longshot will win the Belmont, you need to get the date correct.
Well, the dust has settled, and, boy, Lukas has never ceased to amaze me!!!!!! The only comforting thing that I can take away from this race, was that looking back, I couldn't have picked Oxbow, even knowing now what I didn't know then. Congrats to Lukas, Stevens, and all who believed in this colt. Still can't get over the fact that this was the slowest time since 1961. Wow, how things had changed over the years. What's even stranger, is that only four horses ran under 1:57 from '61 back to when this race was run at 1 3/16 mile. Oddest fact of all?????????? The slowest time ever to win the Preakness Stakes at this distance, belongs to Citation in 1948. The last Triple Crown winner before Secretariat renewed the TC accomplishment. Next, the Belmont Stakes. Where's have Temperence Hill, Da Tara, or Sarava gone?
Well, despite the loss, you gave it your all, Robby "Yabba Dabba" Albarado "Do". Thanks for the thrill, be it ever so short. We were right about one thing, Emollient was in a photo with the water truck, winning by a "flaring" nostril. And, so it goes.
Thanks, Mary. Good luck on your selections.
Thank you, Ace. Good luck on your picks.
Prior to them loading into the gate, I heard(I think it might've been Donna Brothers?) it said that Vyjack was involved in a "kicking incident", where he kicked hard, but she noted that he did not look like it had taken any toll on him. I wonder if that, in any way, may have affected his race? I didn't think the off going would be a problem, since he had won in the slop before.
And, as this day nears the end, I thought I'd share a happy "Oops, I made a mistake" story. As the Derby ended, I proceeded to pull out my wallet to discard the losing tickets I had. When I looked at my Oaks/Derby ticket, I realized that I had mistakenly said 16 instead of 14. Ha!!! These are the kind of days that everyone should have!!! I wish everyone the best, and if it wasn't your day today, may it be tomorrow. Take care.
Thank you, Patrick. Good luck to you tomorrow. Cash in silver dollars!!!
