That was a bad ride. That is all. The bright side is that Improbable will have a better odds next time out.



the last half furlong of that race was covered in 6.06. The previous 2 in 24.46. the race with Game Winner was about the same. those are the best end of race times I've seen from the contenders, and it's pretty quick, and its a very good sign.

although I may have missed something in the others.

Considering how the other star two year olds have been pretty bad coming back this year, Improbable and Game Winner acquitted themselves very nicely for their first starts.

the city of Baltimore is trying to stop the powerful Stronach group from closing Pimlico and moving all operations to a renovated track in Laurel, Maryland
the Preakness has been run at Pimlico in Baltimore since 1873
probably not a great many people care about this, but I'm a guy with family roots in Baltimore and I do
I don't want the Preakness to leave Pimlico and Baltimore - I would rather that Stronach renovates Pimlico

Too expensive to renovate Pimlico. They race like 10 days a year there.

Iíve been to Laurel, not Pimlico.

I was not impressed.

Tacitus seems to be the best shot I have in my barn this year. GLTA in the 2019 Kentucky Derby.

Great ride keeping the slow pace up front in the Florida Derby for Maximum Security

I wonder if trainers will send a rabbit out after him in the Kentucky Derby?

With a 20 horse filed not sure there isn't always a "rabbit", seems like some horse always goes too fast early.

My future wagers are looking pretty solid so far. These prep races are nuts. 2 weeks to go!

wonder where DD is
he hasn't posted here since 3/9
he started the thread and usually posts a lot about the Derby and preps
today is the Wood, and I think he focuses on NY racing a lot

He signed on today. Maybe just doesn't have anything to say.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
