If anyone is interested, I got alerted today about a horse named "Mississippi" who looks like he might be a Derby contender. First derby Prep race is Saturday at Gulfstream. 

 

Cheers

It's been talked about a lot but Justify didn't run as a 2-year-old.  A horse that didn't run as a two year old and won the Derby hasn't happened since the 19th century.

6-7-8-9. Going to stay away from the horses inside of 6 and outside of 14. I may regret fading 10, 11 and 14 but whatever.

Nice, Seth.

Cheers. 

 

Glory Days on me for the next 5 March Madness Fridays. 40-1 future bet on March 11. Unreal.
