Sorry for you pal. Better luck next time.

Winning the Oaks ends my system. Therefore I start over, which changes my Derby play.
Back to first play wager.
Scratching my El Padrino/Bodemeister idea.
Going with my favorite horse in the race.
Will play Creative Cause to win (system restart) and a few bucks of todays winnings on a Creative Cause/Gemologist exacta wheel for a possible nice bonus.

How did you make out today phoghead?

Congrats on the Oaks win.

Good luck to everybody in the Derby.

Looking at Dullahan/Union Rags/Creative Cause/Gemologist/Went the Day Well/Daddy Knows Best combination of some sort that I'll figure out tomorrow and more than likely screw up LOL.

Can't shake the bug. Gonna open an additional system (I'll call it the "hunch" system) and make a small El Padrino play.

OK, I think we can all agree we hope Hansen runs the wrong way out of the gate.

Had the 2nd and 3rd place horses.....liked I'll Have Another, but I hated the post, and 1st time jockey on board scared me off.

Despite running 2nd...I was more impressed with Bodemeister than I was the winner. Those fractions were just ridiculous, and to hang in there (I thought at the head of the stretch he would be an easy winner) says a lot about the horse.

He'll win the Preakness going away.

Agreed on Bode, but not sold on him running away with the Preakness. He wasn't alone running those fractions. I thought at the head of the stretch he would collapse! Ha.
Man oh man there's a lot of class in this year's class!
I liked the run from Cause who got pinched out of the gate and had a lot of traffic to fight through. Made a nice stretch run but had used too much on the trip. I lost track of Gem late on the backstretch.
Derby cost me $42, Oaks $20. Ended + $234. I'll take that for Pimlico fun.

2012 Kentucky Derby order of finish

1. Ill Have Another
2 .Bodemeister
3. Dullahan
4. Went the Day Well
5. Creative Cause
6. Liaison
7. Union Rags
8. Rousing Sermon
9. Hansen
10. Daddy Nose Best
11. Optimizer
12. Alpha
13. El Padrino
14. Done Talking
15. Sabercat
16. Gemologist
17. Trinniberg
18. Prospective
19. Take Charge Indy
20. Daddy Long Legs

I know diddly about horses, but I'll Have Another looked small compared to most of the other horses, kinda Seabiscuit'esque @ 15 hands?

He sure ran big at the end. I don't know how tall he is.
Bode was really impressive, but the little red horse ran the same distance faster and came through traffic to do it. That's kind of a sobering thought to speed freaks.

I'll say this for Bode, if today was the Preakness he won it.

Back home after a fun, but disappointing day at the simulcast/track.

It became apparent as soon as the track was labeled as "fast", after the first race, that front-speed was going well. I wanted to play Dullahan in all the slots, but wisely placed the larger portion of my Derby's wager on him to show.

I had Bode and Dullahan in the right spots in the exotics, but did not play I'll Have Another on top. I just didn't think he had the experience, and a rookie jockey made me convince myself to play him 4th only in the superfecta.

Bode absolutely ran his eyeballs out .. 1:09 and change and was STILL there at the wire !! Unreal, when you look at the history of this race.

Union Rags, a horrific trip, which was my fear given his post.

Oh well .... five days of research goes down the drain in 2 minutes, ha. Congrats to anyone who had this race - you deserved it !
