You know, all the time Ya'all have been reading me, I have rarely, if ever, complained about a jockey's ride. As a former agent, I know it's a hard gig, and not always their fault. However after witnessing two rides in yesterday's early double, one can see why railbirds will…
Rapid Fire thoughts on yesterday : -We went 3 for 13 on the card ( including an horrific nose loss at 17-1 ) that made our Triple Crown total 9-41 ( $82 bet/$94.10 returned ). We spent more time doing these three columns than any other, so I guess extra…
One word for yesterday-skunked. Sometimes you're the bug, and sometimes you're the windshield. Yesterday---we were the bug.

Perfunctory day for us yesterday, with two winners totaling $14.40.

Some rapid fire thoughts from yesterday : - I saw Social Inclusion bouncing around in the post parade ( more than normal ), and sweating halfway down his hind legs ( more than normal ), and I turned to everyone in the room and said "Folks---I'm dead." After breaking 5th…
Fairly quiet day @ Santa Anita yesterday with just one winner and a couple of placings. Had our 20-1 shot best bet give us a bit of a thrill as he led to the 1/4 mile pole, then petered out. Was a bit rank under bug handling, but we're do…
