Sports Illustrated does a nice job with photos of each horse and a brief summary...

I had read that about Creative Cause.
They had taken the blinkers off his last race to see what reaction they'd get.
He'll just have to man up.

Terrific photos of the field.

Finally figured out why Rosie Napravnik's agent was so bitter the other day. Rajiv Maragh got the mount on Alpha in the Derby.

Well, I'll be first to jump into the pool.
These are dry track selections.

1st pick Creative Cause - has all positives, no negatives.

2nd pick Gemologist - any Tiznow colt (although light on the dam side) whose undefeated, with 2 wins over the track, must be selected.

3rd pick Alpha - change of rider not good, infection after the Wood not good. The Wood Memorial has been downplayed as light this year. I disagree. Godolphin colt with excellent breeding is dangerous.

4th pick Hansen - I believe he'll be leading entering the stretch. After that is anyone's guess.

The balance:
I'll Have Another
Union Rags
Dullahan
Daddy Nose Best
Went The Day Well
Done Talking
Rousing Sermon
Bodemeister

In the Oaks today.

I've never been a chalk player, but favorite Grace Hall looks like a lock at the distance.
Watch out for longshots Hard Not To Like, Jemima's Pearl, or And Why Not for the lesser awards.

Albarado arrested.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...786/index.html


Quote:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Jockey Robby Albarado was arrested Friday on an assault charge for allegedly accosting a woman who says she was breaking up with him, resulting in the veteran rider losing his spot in the Kentucky Oaks later in the day.

Albarado was accused of throwing the woman to the floor of a residence on Tuesday, according to the arrest warrant. The woman, who had lived with Albarado, suffered a separated shoulder and bruises to her legs, an arm and shoulder, the report said.

The jockey was booked into the local jail after his arrest without incident by sheriff's officers at a residence, said Jefferson County Sheriff's Department spokesman Carl Yates. Albardo's arrest on the fourth-degree assault charge came hours before he was to ride the filly Hard Not to Like in the $1 million Kentucky Oaks, the female version of the Kentucky Derby.

Local court officials said there was no document yet indicating that Albarado had hired a lawyer in the case. His arraignment was set for Tuesday.

It's the second straight year Albarado has faced assault accusations.

Javier Castellano takes a spill in that last race. Loaded into the ambulance but looks in good spirits.

That sound you hear is my conscience kicking itself for going against Rosie and Larry Jones on the same horse.

I was going to ask if you played 6 and 9 with Rosie on top but that could be interpreted incorrectly.

This Derby race is insane to handicap. I just saw a track expert from the local newspaper make picks and she chose: Take Charge Indy on top of Gemologist. Then to work in exotics, she mentioned Union Rags (who she prefers for the Preakness based on pedigree), Dullahan, Creative Cause, Daddy Nose Best ("has looked terrific"), Hansen (speed will work against him) and Prospective (a "bomber"). I didn't hear her mention Bodemeister but she said to throw out I'll Have Another based on the post position.

There's a lot of quality horses as well. Should be great speed. Dick Jerardi likes Union Rags, Bodemeister, Daddy Nose Best, and Gemologist.

Anna, you can't cry when you win a Grade 1 race.

Funny, in that the fractions weren't slow (1.11 for 6), yet they were going easily up front, which didn't allow any closers to get involved.

One thing I missed. Believe You Can was tearing up the track in the AM. 58.2B, and 59B over the track showed she was sharp as could be, and liked the surface.

Robby Albarado.
What is your problem?

Hey Miami. No NY Post this year?

Daddy Nose Best seems to be the Wise Guy pick. Works pretty much never in these big races.

Whether its 2 turns or sprinting, Shackleford is an amazing animal.

With his natural speed and size, he'll turn out to be quite the stud horse.

Pincay used the term "Wise guy pick" a few minutes ago, too.

If nothing else, I'm 2-for-2 lifetime with Shackleford.

Alright. Was wondering who these two guys on TV were. Good to see he is still doing pre-race coverage

Pfft, going to start watching at 4. Hammond!
