Being added to the Belmont Stakes - Palace Malice
Hmmm ... that makes no sense but hey swing for the fences with yet another different jockey (!) if it makes you feel good. Palace Malice is...
I'm not so sure abut this foolishness. The ACRC is a good novelty/boutique meet but that's not the same as this - 2 race date proposal: May 20, 2013 - "Palio di Atlantic City – horse racing by the...
Should I be worried ;)
Pletcher is apt to run "Unlimited Budget" (althought no assurances) but "Dreaming of Julia" will instead be pointed to the (filly restricted) Grade 1, $300,000 Mother Goose on June 22nd at Belmont.

By the way it looks like Kaiser Soze knows the ponies ;)
Yes - Kevin Spacey cashed that $820 winner.
Who is going to Belmont? Well it appears there is a very good chance of it being Orb vs Oxbow
McGaughey said if Orb skips the Belmont, summer racing at Saratoga would likely be next.
Regarding the Calumet silks - it's never been reported if Brad Kelley has made an offer (and was rebuffed) with obtaining the registered rights to them. Mentioned previously: From Bill Christine...
Whomever you picked to win the Preakness Stakes it was still a good day for racing: attendance was 117,203, 4th largest all-time. Preakness race handle $50,251,542, handle for day was $81,940,233,...
A great day for Brad Kelley (Calumet)/ D. Wayne Lukas/ Gary Stevens ...
If we cannot honor the victors we spoil the event. They earned their wins and I raise a toast to them - salute, cin cin,...
Orb has already hit the track ... 'for light exercise' on morning of Triple Crown's second leg
Tweeted image - Orb having 7 am breakfast on Preakness morning
Temps in upper 60's now with "light sprinkle of rain" falling at Pimlico with an increasing chance of showers forecast into the...
So is anyone making as Pimlico inspired drink for tomorrow? ;)
All the names pretty much would be fine for a "drink"- the Oxbow, perhaps?
To make up for the Fiftyshadesofhay other literary...
dressagetraks - not to ruin it, but Orb wins barely over Afleet Alex.
A tweet from May 17th @ 1:16pm EST (although when I did advanced wagering the Terminal didn't have these odds):
Insert bad literary joke here- ouch
Tweet from DRF's Matt Hegarty: "Groan. Fiftyshadesofhay appeared to react well to the whip."
I'm thinking it was Maracuya ridden by John Velazquez who was rolling for much of the race then the tank went dry.
Video replay here of the G2 $500k Black Eyed Susan
(That is the call using...
Video replay: Ben's Cat takes the Jim McKay Turf Sprint (5-17-13)
Prior to his win - how in the world doesn't he go off at Pimlico at even money or less?!! - there was this DRF "Ben's Cat looks to pad rich resume in Jim McKay Turf Sprint"
After his win, King...
Ben's Cat and Fiftyshadesofhay cash the checks today :)
It's been a good wagering day thus far for me.
Once again the Preakness quick and easy, nifty bettors guide from the NYPost/Ed Fountaine
Hmmmm .. "what if" video simulation with Orb vs. recent Preakness winners including War Emblem, Afleet Alex, Rachel Alexandra
NBC Sports (Larry Collmus with the call) - animated race
Yep - today is the 'Peoples Pink Party' - so that includes the Lady Legends for the Cure Race IV 'presented by Wells Fargo' and Battle of the Sexes Jockey Challenge on top of the marque race, the...
The official press release from Maserati North America
By the way - dry, fast track? Eh, don't bet on it. The Weather Channel has now made the chance of rain Sat afternoon 50%
Yep, Fiftyshadesofhay is owned by owned by Mike Pegram as well as Karl Watson, and Paul Weitman. The name doesn't really have a play on the sire/dam - its just coy and trendy.
As posted in another thread by Vibrant Black it looks like Pimlico amazingly does have a free, live video stream feed to tap into to watch the racing. Unclear what will happen, if anything, when...
