I post. My policy is to only say something when I have something to say.

I seem to recall a horse ( of course sponsored by Studebaker ) that would also never speak unless he had something to say. Coincidence? I think NOT!! :)
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

A computer analysis has him currently rated 43rd.

I think the ranking sounds about right. Bodog's odds on him winning the Derby have dropped to 50-1, which is almost criminal to have his odds that low.

I would say the chances of him actually racing in the Derby are 20-1. If he somehow overcomes those odds, he won't be better than 20-1 in the Derby. So fair odds on him winning the Derby is probably somewhere around 400-1.

Once again, Bodog should be ashamed of their odds on this future bet.

Going on his last run, he couldn't win the Derby if he started now. He just went backwards from the home turn.
The winner (Soldat), however, was very impressive and must be a good chance.

I put $2 on Soldat to win the Derby in the last future pool at 18-1. I wish I would have put $20. I'm guessing he'll be around 10-1 or 12-1 in this weekend's pool.

All eyes will be focused on Uncle Mo on Saturday, it should be exciting.

Shackleford is at it again.

He's racing Sunday in the $1,000,000 Florida Derby.

He needs to either win or come in 2nd to have a chance at making the Kentucky Derby, and this is his last chance.

This is a very deep field, so I predict him finishing no higher than 4th.

Yeah, I took Soldat in the first Derby pool at 18-1. I thought I was going to get better odds on him, so I was disappointed. Now I wish I would have put a lot more on him...
