Big Brown won easily, impressively and is without a doubt the best three year old in the world right now.  I just can't say enough about this guy.  As he was pulling away from the field by his usual five lengths, Desmoreaux had to actually hold him in at the end. 

I got into horse racing about the same time as the last Triple Crown winner (30 years ago) and in all those years have not seen a horse this good.

      Thanks tiggs....no, I didn't have a cent on him.  The 2.20 payout didn't turn me on.  It is such a joy watching him race that a bet seems unnecessary if you know what I mean.

          I had two winning races handicapped in the pick 6; a win with Lantana Mob in race 9 and Big Brown in race 12.

          Exactas played in race 12 were 7-3, 7-12, and 7-13; 2 bucks on each one except 5 dollars on 7-13; played one triple (7 keyed with 3,13).  Almost had the 7-3 exacta play; 7 won and 3 was 3rd.  20 dollars to win on Big Brown and got $4 profit out of that.

          A memorable day though; Big Brown very impressive to watch; on to the Belmont where he will face Japanese invader Casino Island.

            Sorry I could'nt get on for the Preakness guys, but as I stated before as long as this horse stays sound you're going to see a triple crown winner..... I said after he won in florida, that he was that good and he's gotten better since. See ya at Belmont.....! 

            What a race Rick....!!!

              Going with two different tickets:

               

              1.  Big Brown   Perfecta 7/12

                   Gayego

               

              2.  Big Brown  Perfecta 7/3

                   Icabad Crane

               

              I choose not to go for a trifecta when I can can choose the right two.

              You did well for a novice.  7-3 was close for the exacta (perfecta); final result was 7-1-3.

                  Thanks Keystone.  I really enjoyed that race today.  Like Rick I didn't put any big bucks on him, but the ole man made a mistake when he purchased his tickets and asked for 7-1-3 Trifecta!!!!!!!!!!  I/he could not believe it.  Paid out a 168.40 - not bad for a mistake. 

                  I came close , but really have sharpen up for the next big one.  And Racecar Rhapsody (#6 post) did show up in fourth place.  Had a hunch he'd be there.

                   Yes it was an impressive race.

                    ducksafloat, whatever works for you, go for it.  As long as you have the 7 included, it's a wide open race with the others.  You never know....

                    Applying things you've learned from LP playing the lottery is a good way to play exactas, tri's and supers.

                    thanks Rick G,

                    it works 4 me! and oh yea!  the 7 was included!  i swear i luv 2 c that horse run!  i luved it so much i saved the race just 2 watch it again and again!
