Who's betting an odds on favorite from that post? I'm taking a shot with the rail horse and Dale's horse to post the upset.

And I am developing zero interest in this year's respective 3yo crops.

When does Arrogate run again??

I have an event on the day of the Derby and I think for the first time in my life I'm not even viewing it as a big deal.

I love Gunnevera and this field is largely terrible, but his odds are bizarrely low. It feels like every TC prep has had an odds-on favorite this year, pretty weird.

He's looking foamy on his neck and between his legs. Dunno if that's normal for him, if it's really humid or if he's washy.

Always Dreaming won easy, I believe he checked early but he got a nice trip from there.

Perfectly happy with that effort from Gunnevera, should get better odds on him now.

i stand by my earlier statement that this years 3 yr old colts are meh. i got flak for it, but i'm just more convinced the more they run. shorten three rules up, tho, i'll say that. i think he'd be a nice sprinter.

Follow your heart. You need it. And where did it learn to scurry like that?

I feel like we call the 3yo crop terrible every year. It's because we look back at previous years and only remember the few great horses and not the bad ones who have *always* greatly outnumbered them.

2007 was a pretty cool year.

This crop is so terrible that I think your better odds might not be all that great.
