Luis Saez got slapped with a 15 day suspension for his ride in the Derby (he is appealing the decision):

I think it is a bit harse, but all the squawking from Max Security's owners and lawyers surely did not help. A lack of taking some/any responsibility for the ride in the Derby (actually blaming War Of Will's jockey) and showing little respect/deference to the Steward's decision also was not likely helpful.
----------

Preakness post posisiton draw will be Wednesday. Twelve runners are the current estimate for the race.
Improbable, War of Will, Alwaysmining, Bourbon War, Owendale, Anothertwistafate, Win Win Win, Warriors's Charge, Signalman, Laughing Fox, Bodexpress, Market King

Certainly has the look of a great betting race. Speedsters, pressers, and closers to choose from. I am sticking with the best 3yo IMO, War of Will. The 1 post is fine for this race. Hopefully he sits off the pace and pounces late down the stretch. He needed the Derby and hopefully he is fit and ready to roll. After him I just do not know right now. 4/1 would be great if it stays that high on Saturday.

In other news, The West's have filed a Federal Court case. I guess we will see where it goes...

Weak doesn't mean uncompetitive. This has the makings of a very exciting race.

nice call K

it would be great if Country House, War of Will and Maximus Security all showed up for the Belmont

but I doubt it will happen

I missed War of Will. Could not get there and could not get my friend to bet for me.
War had the perfect trip today. Doubt War will get that next time.

Broke even on Preakness.

My #1 pick went too fast but still held fourth somehow.

$10 to win on War of Will paid for the losses.

pretty funny article - actually what happened is not that uncommon but once in a blue moon fans had never seen it before

Bode's fans lit up Twitter with their praise of him
