A few races of note on the Derby trail this weekend. The third race at GS Sat. Western Slam goes against another Pletcher horse on my watch list, Keyed Entry, and 8 others. Should be a good race. Aren't they all! Then the Aventura at a mile is the seventh race. This race has produced Derby runners in the past. As it turns out 6 of the horses on my watch list are running in this race:My Golden Song, D'Broken Speed, Catcominatcha, Itsallboutthechase, Dixie Swinger, and Little Cliff. You never want this to happen in the Road To The Roses contest, and I try to spread my horses in that contest over the country so they won't come together like this. But, its early and at least several will be eliminated from my list early on. Up in NY you have the Count Fleet. Not much there for me at this time. I would lean toward Hi It's Me and Achilles of Troy. The PP's for the San Miguel out west are not posted yet. That's it for now - Comments?

Hey, Abe, you are making it around the boards these days, both here and on UpinClass.com.  Are you on any other boards with the same information?

Several. Different people read different boards. I like to get opinions from as many as possible.

Abe,

It is too early in the year for me to get into the candidates, most of the horses you mention don't have typical "classic" pedigrees - but that hasn't mattered as much in recent years.

As I'm sure you know, Gulfstream is generally GP as an abbreviation - matches the drf moniker which has Garden State as GS.

Well, Abe, it's anudder sloooooow day. And my guys are SLOOOOOOOw answering the phone. So, how'd your Jan. 5th picks go? The Derby has strict eligibility requirements so is it necessarily a last-horse standing-thing with you? Too bad they eliminated field bets. Who's left on the Derby trail, now?

It has been a sloooow day. Sooo slow I am almost sorry I gave up smoking. so slow I am contemplating how I would look as a blonde.  Maybe with a short "perky" haircut.  I don't know, may need some talking out of this new project. But then hair does grow back.  We will see if I am bored enough to go through with the project.
