If race 7, the Lure, stays on the turf I love Macagone at a price... 1,6,7,12 ex box and Mac for the win if that one stays on.

Thpought it was raining there... web cam showed rain as did the weather report. Might rethink Macagone if the turf is firm.

they had a 10 minute monsoon, some say the water truck delivers more moisture.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Alright, fair enough, rethinking the Lure, but I'm betting 4,7/1,4,5,7 in the Waya. Think Summersault might be able to upset.

Mohaymen was last in the Alydar: this is getting sad watching him race so poorly. they need to retire him or find another career. poor boy.

Mohaymen wasn't just last; he was eased up on and trotted past the wire far, far behind the rest of the field. :(
I agree that they need to retire the little grey. He hasn't shown anything at four, and it's fair to say that it's been well over a year since he's had a decent race. It looks like he just gives up now in his races. Maybe that trouncing by Nyquist in last year's Florida Derby broke his willingness to fight for a win.
With his pedigree and early success, I suppose Shadwell could find a place for him to stand, but...man, there are a lot of Tapits out there now, and many with better records.
On a more positive note, the winner of the Alydar, Rally Cry (Uncle Mo) was pretty impressive. Pletcher may aim for the Woodward with the handsome colt.

yeah I hated to see Mohaymen finishing last today too - handsome little guy - but I don't think he wants to play anymore.

West Virginia Derby went off Saturday and not a TV to be found showing it at Saratoga. One TV even had Suffolk. I'm thinking we will stay home Arlington Million weekend. Why spend all the money for travel, hotels, meals, when you have the excellent NYRA Now app and can watch other big races on a big screen?
