Who could forget the "Ice Bowl" played by The Packers and the Cowboys at Greenbay. Supposedly, one of the coldest football games ever played. I saw it on TV, but couldn't remember all the details....

I didn't say toss him, although it might sound like that. I was just offering a possible explanation for why Pletcher is entering him which is he obviously thinks he can get the distance.

One of the more colorful quotes I've heard about the Belmont is: "that horse couldn't get the distance on the back of a flatbed truck." I guess Pletcher thinks this one could get the distance without...

Interesting that Baffert gets the 17 post for Roadster. Every year it seems that there is some historical precedent or "curse" to overcome like the unraced at 2 curse or the curse of the BC Juvenile...

And there has been some hype about her here, but not from me. I never said she was all that great. I just said I didn't expect her to do what she has never done before which is run well at a mile and...

Maybe she has gone bad. When that happens they seem to go very bad all at once, but maybe she just needs more ground. Where is her good race at a mile and a sixteenth? Brisnet gives her 4 triple...

Fine by me, if it turns out that way, but too many ifs there. I am thinking Omaha Beach for the Arkansas Derby. Pacesetters often relish a wet track and I think he won at Santa Anita on one. Should...

He will be on my tickets too and I will be surprised if he is not the race favorite, but there will also be a lot of support for Roadster as reflected in the Futures. That said, I don't see a lot of...

Anybody know whether the Arkansas Derby will be on Fox Sports channel or not and if so, will they also have the Oaklawn Handicap, Count Fleet and other races?

Even if they are not in his derby dozen, Steve Haskin will give a mention to a lot of other horses. I didn't see any mention of Magic on Tap. I have him too in Pool 1 and also Mucho trained by Mott....

Considering how often a filly even makes it into the field, 30-1 doesn't seem to be overly generous. Maybe something slightly less than say Megabucks like odds would be more appropriate or I am I...

Steve, a question for you. Looking at the Brisnet PPs for the Sprint and the F&M Sprint, they have the distance for the Sprint as 6F and the F&M at 7F.
Is that a mistake or the way it's supposed to...

I don't think your eyes were deceiving you. I think the actual or raw times were slow, but I think it was a slow and tiring racetrack and the Beyer boys took that into consideration in making their...

Yes, she looks formidable on paper, to put it mildly, but still I might put a few bucks on some of the usual suspects.:D Wonder Woman(Gadot) was only beaten a half length in the Oaks and has since...

I guess it depends on what yardstick you use. If you are talking about G-1 winners, the Travers had two in Good Magic and Catholic Boy(on Turf). The PA Derby has one in McKenzie. Both races, if I am...

I saw his mistake too, but didn't think of Norm Crosby. Haven't thought of him in years. He's got to be long gone. If he were alive, he'd probably be a hundred and ten. He was the absolute king of...

I think that Blended Citizen might also be a candidate for that role having already won a race at Belmont (please note that I did not use the term "wise guy" :):D)

Quip has beaten me twice. If I bet him this time, he'll run like Arnold Swarzenegger is his jockey with a 50 pound sack of concrete under each arm.:zz::D

Should be perfect for Justify, if he is what Baffert and everyone says he is and if he can get out of the gate without issues. Should be able to set up shop right behind the two likely front runners...
