Perfunctory day for us yesterday, with two winners totaling $14.40. Blistering times on the downhill turf course, as they're having a bit of a drought out there ( You can really see the dust kick up, as well---reminiscent of Gulfstream when that course gets beaten up. ) There's a FREE NHC Qualifying…
So, anything interesting going on today ? Heard there's some kinda horse race or summin'. Oh yeah, that Triple Crown deal. : )  What am I doing for the big race ? Well, I'll be in my horse racing heaven---Saratoga---watching it from the ol' sofa. I was there for War…
Writing today's column from cozy Saratoga, where upon driving into town, you can see the fresh paint put on the track in places, and things are taking shape for the best racing meet in the world, which is a mere month and a half away. As my dad used to…
Some rapid fire thoughts from yesterday : - I saw Social Inclusion bouncing around in the post parade ( more than normal ), and sweating halfway down his hind legs ( more than normal ), and I turned to everyone in the room and said "Folks---I'm dead." After breaking 5th…

Well, this is the "Calm before the storm" week. A week of hype for next weeks' Preakness begins today, and as of yet the race really isn't shaping up to be a great one, but thigs can change between now and entry time. On to the card... Santa Anita - 5/9…
Welcome back, ya'all. Santa Anita was closed yesterday due to scalding heat ( 108 degrees ), and although today isn't supposed to be that bad ( 95 ), it's still a mite warm. You may be well served to pay much attention to the horses in the paddock and during…
So so day at the office yesterday with just 2 winners, but we made up for it with FOUR $12 exacta box winners paying $25, $20, $13, and $66, to go along with a $201 Triple box ( $12 bet ) for good measure.  Our best bet of the day…
  Well here it is, the big day. I truly do get excited for today. Not so much that it's my favorite race, because it isn't ( The King's Bishop ). It's the tradition I dig. Keep the field this size, keep the Triple Crown spaced the way it is,…
