1/ Belmont --- Listened to it on the radio cuz I was at a park. Rooting for Baffert, after the race I felt like it had been me that ran 1 1/2 miles.
2/ thru 10/ --- Nine races at Fairmount that I cashed big in, including a couple won by Oust, one of my all-time favorites. I like live racing and there sure wasn't much to get excited about in the "big" races this year.

When Maven  totally dominated Check Me Out in the Breeders Crown final

of course CMO has more head to head decisions in their battles--but Maven was going to win the Hambo Oaks if CMO doesnt jump--i saw it--no one believed me--so i waited and pounded the sh** out of Maven in the BC race and was vindicated

of course there was a scant nose separating the two @ Mohawk earlier in the year---- when Maven had a much rougher trip--also pointing towards what was about to happen later in the year--a spanking

of course CMO wins the 3yo trotting award--but an asterisk should be placed next to her name--because the faster trotting filly was Maven--and sorry if that upsets yall

by the way--i know is a Tbred discusiion--but i couldnt help myself--the harness side has NO such thread started

I loved this years Belmont. Wise Dans win in the BC was extra special because of all the Euro and Frankel talk. Cannot wait to see him and Animal Kingdom in 2013.
