I haven't updated forever but not sure I can come up with a dozen I like. Looking forward to my original list sleeper West Coast in the Lexington today, I guess this is it for his chances--it's now or never.

West Coast finished 2nd, run down in the last foot at the wire by Senior Investment (who?). But even if he had won, that would have left him with only ten points, far short of making the Derby field.

I think that was more of a Preakness prep tbh.

That's right. Not sure the Preakness will be his next race now though.

I was pretty disappointed with that loss only because I really liked his chances all spring and then when he cleared the field at the head of the lane it seemed impossible that he would lose. I was literally shocked to see him stop like that and let the field come back to him.

Lots of learning still to do.
