4 breakdowns this meeting at Santa Anita, more in San Francisco. He was told to vacate all Stronach property with horses and equipment. He saw it coming. He is just now opening a barn in NY.

From what I understand, Country House was "looking sick" to Mott. There are no plans for him running in the Belmont. Whatever that means.

Racing / Battle of Midway broke down-- he's gone

Shattered his right hand pastern.
After he proved subfertile, the owners suffered from the "he's standing there not making us millionaires " syndrome.

What is a Wallynette? :headshake: I've never seen that name before. It seems to be a jockey.
I had to have "tests". Whoopee! The white coats now know that my heart goes the same flub dub it always did. I am thrilled. I still have 2 legs. I am ecstatic. My knees actually bend. How nice. You'd think it would take less than ten days to figure that out.
No.  :racing:
International Racing / Lady Aurelia won

By 3 lengths or so. She loves it there.
I keep getting stuck in about 14 betting shop links in a never ending maze. If the left don't hit you the right one will.

Going to try eventing now. Sounds like he figures he's been going around in circles enough.
:thanks: Whitey. You de man.
Racing / Thunder Snow behaved better this time

Second to Churchill in the Irish 2,000 Guineas yesterday. The jockey did not need to get tied on this time.  :thanks: for the Godolphin Fantasy points, Thunder Snow!
Racing / Baffert did it again

He's done it before. Hype one horse. The other flies past the hyped horse. Keep your owners happy.
I caught on a while back.  :lightbulb: That white hair hides a devious mind, doesn't it. :thanks: Baff.

Suffered a "setback". No more info, I'm guessing a minor tendon strain.
The new owner of the Preakness Trophy is Cloud Computing. :celebrate: :racinghorse:
Where do I post my picks?
We had WW II leaders last year. Maybe they are going to try 40's movie stars... silent screen stars... 60's rock groups...
Under the full moon in Loo-easy-anna who should light up the tote boards
but the swift Blunny,who was closely pursued by the frisky filly Ruffian.
Cigarshop managed third, while Criminal Type snuck in to try to steal the ring.

He was apprehended and will be closely observed as ring bearer.Stark
must have had a few buddies whispering to him as he did well.

The rest of us made a big cloud of dust
but not much cash in the rear.

John Henry is awarded scorekeeper duties next week.

Blunny.    $62.50
Ruffian.     60.20
Cigarshop 57.00
Criminal Type 43.60

Stark.          42.70
Dusty.         38.10
Catalina.    24.20

Good night and sweet dreams!

He even has the right name. I'm a WWII nut.
