        I also like the chances of Friesan Fire.  Class of the field, looks to be able to handle the wet track, rested, sharp 5f workout in :57 on Mon.  Looks ready for top effort.

        I'm betting him across the board.

        Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

          Kentucky Derby 5/2:

              1.     Dunkirk.

              2.     Firesan Fire

              3.     Papa Clem.

          --------------------------------------

          I see FiresanFire and PapaClem seeting torrid fractions until the top of the stretch, and then see Dunkirk breezing down the lane to win.

                        Isn't this major upset interesting.....????

                        Consider how many major races we have seen with top of the line national public handicappers and they seem to all miss selecting the 20-1, 30-1 or 50-1 shots!

                        Kinda makes you think, hey what's happening ???? Wink

                        Looks like Racing is getting to compete with boxing-

                          Father of Mine That Bird co-owner center of scandal

                           


                           

                          by Tim Nichols

                          The father of Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) winner Mine That Bird’s co-owner Mark Allen is one of the principals at the center of a wide corruption scandal involving the Alaska Legislature and former United States Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska).

                          Bill Allen, former chief executive officer of oil services company VECO Corp., pleaded guilty to multiple charges of bribery and conspiracy involving four Alaska state legislators on May 7, 2007. As part of the plea, his son Mark Allen received immunity from prosecution.

                          Bill Allen testified on October 1, 2008, during the federal trial of former Senator Stevens that his son Mark “got money to this legislator” that Bill Allen later referred to as “her,” according to the Anchorage Daily News. On March 11, former state Representative Beverly Masek (R-Willow) agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery for accepting at least $4,000 in bribes in 2003 in exchange for voting against an oil tax bill she originally introduced.

                          According to the Daily News, on April 18, 2003, Masek met with an individual identified as a “relative” of Bill Allen in Anchorage and accepted a bribe.

                          After Allen pleaded guilty to federal bribery and conspiracy charges, VECO was sold to Denver, Colorado-based CH2M Hill on September 7, 2007. The Daily News reported the sale produced a $146-million dividend, which was split among VECO’s six owners, including Bill and Mark Allen.

                          Mark Allen’s Double Eagle Ranch was active in horse racing during the time of the sale.

                          In August 2007, Double Eagle Ranch spent nearly $726,000 at the Ruidoso Select Quarter Horse sale in New Mexico and purchased the sale topper for $460,000, according to the Daily News.

                          Mark Allen and Leonard Blach privately purchased Mine That Bird for a reported $400,000 in October following the gelding’s victory in the Grey Stakes (Can-G3) at Woodbine.
