Thought? Picks?

3 yo going a mile. Semi-promising son (I think) of Big Brown, Brown Almighty,  in there going for trainer Time Ice.

Doug O'Neill's Avare is the 2/1 ml favorite.

Then good luck to Ice and BA.

The other one I'm kind of liking is the shipper from Aqueduct.

O'Neill's horse does look live, though.

Well, my stinkin' 2 horse didn't quite manage it, but the other member of the household had the 9! (plus the 4)

Amazing how good you can do when Twin Spires is shut off and you're not trying to outguess yourself with wagers, and just picking horses.

  Old Guys Lukas/Court combine to win the early prep Sat. at Fairgrounds and now the early prep today at Oaklawn.   Paying good and looking north.

Jon K. Court --- he was riding at Oaklawn when I was there in 1984. Jesus H. Christ are we old. Who could forget his agent, the one-and-only Gene Shaw.
D-Wayne showed up late in the meet. Didn't like him then, and don't like him now. But he pulled a major score when Althea got beat in the Fantasy and he ran her a week later in the Arkansas Derby. Her win there was the strongest performance I've ever seen.

    BA sure didnt fire today and looks like his bid for the derby is pretty well over dunno but I love the fact that Jon won today. He isnt always the best rider but I admire him for his moxy and stayin in the game. Not a huge fan of Lucas either but this trainee was out of the nice mare Take Charge Lady so  thumbs up

I didn't like Brown Almighty at all in this spot. His future is Turf Sprinting. I'd love to see him on the Hill at SA going 6 1/2.

   I agree Stivo. Im thinking that his dismal bid in the BC race might have made them think this colt could run on the dirt. He did have a stellar work at Oaklawn when the track was much deeper. Sources say he was scoped immediately after the race and he was full of mucus which would certainly explain a lack luster performance yesterday. But I still think he has found a better home on the turf. I find it kind of odd that as we all know Euros look for the grass horses at the sales and turf racing certainly has a place here in the US why couldnt we have a Triple Crown of sorts for aspiring three year olds on the turf?
