Rebel Stakes I

I agree @aubie ... 1, 2, 4, 8, 9... But I wonder if the shipping cross country and the post position open up the 9 to a possible loss. I really like the 2.

Rebel Stakes II:

2,5,6,7, and.... 1. Just can't count out Lukas with John Velasquez aboard. 5 should win, then 6,7,1,2. Just my opinion.

That may be the tip of the Derby season. This is where Jon shines. But it wasn't a bad from a performance standpoint for Improbale. Not the best of trips or ride. If he had tipped out instead of in, he would have held on.

Doesn't make me not like him for Derby selections based off today

Cobra for the save of the day. The (1) made the ticket.

A tip of the cap as well. Not only saved the day a $184.20 trifecta she gave out.

Racing can't catch a break.... Pioneerof The Nile died this morning shortly after breeding a mare. He was 13. One of my favorite stallions gone far too soon.

And racing will somehow be blamed for this. Not by people here who have a better understanding but by the public.

He will be greatly missed. The extent we will never know.

Edit: now seeing in a couple of places COD is heart attack. Just so sad.

The blame is all over media... largely over breeding stallions to large books... Even though POTN had a smaller book because he was a slower breeder. The topic keeps going back to Pharoah breeding 200 mares a year in the US and then shuttling. I don't agree with shuttling, but that's beside the point. POTN is a tragic loss to the racing industry and I feel for his connections who are heartbroken.
