Results posted by Catalina to cover for Dusty who still has ongoing technical problems.

RUFFIAN alertly breaks from the gate and establishes a nice lead, with TIGER DANCER in hot pursuit.  The remainder of the field remains tightly bunched through the first turn, and then gradually losens up, with CATALINA briefly leading the stragglers but then slowly falling back.  In the backstretch, STARK finds another gear and passes the fading TIGER DANCER as well as RUFFIAN.  But, his bold move has inspired DUSTY and CIGARSHOP, who almost immediately wrest the lead from STARK.  While the two front runners battle for the lead, STARK rebreaks and with the audience loudly cheering, STARK manages to fly past the much improved DUSTY and beat the tenacious CIGARSHOP by a nose.  DUSTY comes in third, ten lengths behind CIGARSHOP, and RUFFIAN completes the superfecta and claims The Precious.

Racing / Interesting Blood Horse Write Up on Quiet American
« on: November 28, 2016, 02:51:02 PM »
...who died last month.  About his pedigree, about being very like his sire Fappiano, etc.  Didn't know that both Fappiano and Quiet American's dam shared   Dr. Fager in their pedigree, and a mare called Cequillo, which of course takes both sides back to Princequillo.

Handicapping / MIDWEEK MAYHEM + BOTS ~ 11/16 * RESULTS *
« on: November 16, 2016, 05:20:55 PM »
Congratulations to Real Quiet who added another win to his credit, and with John Henry in close pursuit scored a colts Exacta on this BOTS day.  Tiger Dancer and Ruffian tried as hard as they could, but only completed the Superfecta.  In short, the colts won the bragging rights for the win, and one of the fillies made off with the portable value - gold jewelry aka The Precious. 

Real Quiet               $75.20

John Henry              $73.80

Tiger Dancer            $67.60
