You can relax Bri, he still has plenty of them. He only had a handful of Midwest horses here anyway (I think less than 15?). You'll have more than a few opportunities to take 2-5 on a horse that ought to be 6-1, but then on command finds a magic gear in the stretch.

That has never been a problem.

The forecast is will be clear but on the chilly side (by FL standards). Front coming through tomorrow, then nice the rest of the way.

the best thing you can do in those nickle and eight claimers down there is hit the all button, lord knows i've been burned by too many 1 for 65'ers who suddenly fine their secretariat form down the lane to blow up my DD/PK3/PK4/ etc.

calling for rain wed. we gonna be off the turf for thursday dan-o? gotta long flight, need to cap appropriately

Initially thought we'd be ok, was supposed to arrive by 7AM Wednesday and be sunny by 11AM. Now looking like it won't get here until noon, I'd have to assume at least the early races would be off.

They carded 3 on the turf starting with the 5th. It really boils down to when it gets here and how long it stays.

The Greenskeeper has a tendency to be awfully discriminating mid-week

Friday and Saturday on for sure, Wednesday definitely off, Thursday 50-50 (they've been taking off all but the last race recently on borderline days... would not shock me to see that either)

Weather is already passed, some showers and some fairly stiff wind, but basically a non-event. Turf should be fine tomorrow if I had to guess

Off both days and will be trackside tomorrow before you are out of bed.

I've found the trick to these weekends is getting the capping out of the way as early as possible. I'm half way through tomorrow's card and digging into Friday's card tonight. Between Show Parlays in the Grunder pub, to Derby Lane, to golf, there are precious few moments of down time between first posts.

Have fun guys. Looking forward to hearing the stories.

Just a few suggestions:
Only Eng Chan firsters in the show parlay
Scream "DEANO" like a 5 year old girl if he wins a nickel claimer. But it has to be loud enough to warrant the possibility of a restraining order, or else it doesn't count.
And someone please buy the douchie guy a beer, he needs friends

Great times as always! Good to see everyone again and had a blast as usual. Weather was much better than last year, but missed the warm stuff by a week.
High 70's this weekend...

So I'll be foregoing the track Saturday in favor of some boating/fishing on the Gulf. As promised, the boat will be fuel up and ready for a Friday diversion next year

The thing with parlays is knowing when to stop.(well that and keeping gpk away from the buggy races) As a group we don't have much discipline.

Hoping to make the next trip. Saratoga anyone?
