Omaha Beach scratched with a breathing issue. 

 

Totally changes the entire outlook of the race as he was going to be on or near the lead in a race with barely any early speed. 

 

I'll have a little preview up tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Mike Smith is going to ride Cutting Humor now. Pletcher horse. Move the needle for you?

A little. I think he;ll be closer to the lead now, which could make things tougher for Maximum Security, and maybe speed up the pace a bit for the closers.

 

Also, Haikal scratched this morning, the #11.

Another question. What is more important? Track conditions or times? Supposed to rain tomorrow. Improbable ran in the mud neck and neck with Omaha Beach. But Cutting Humor ran it looks like two to three seconds faster than the other horses did in their Derby prep races, albeit in what was a beautiful day.

New to all this but I'm liking Code of Honor for a WPS bet.

 

Probably do the same for Improbable.

 

Got Champagne Anyone? tonight in the Oaks on a WPS.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I'm so confused as to what happened. I didn't know this were possible.

So a 65-1 longshot takes it instead. Insanity.

I don’t see anything that doesn’t happen in every other close race. But I watch this three times a year. Awfully big stage, and a ton of money in play to make a ruling like this, if this is in fact a border line infraction.

DQ's happen all the time. It was the right call, totally cost a few horses a shot. 

 

Thought they'd move him down to ninth, below War of Will, who he really screwed..Didn't expect them to DQ him to last.

Nice call, Sean!

 

I started to like him as the week went on, but didn't play him.
