10yo m Professional Crush (Mizzen Mast), finished 4th at Northlands Park (5/6/17), in her first race since 2010, and only the fifth of her career. Her prior start
at Aqueduct in February 2010 was a DNF - "pulled up/vanned off". Doesn't smell good, to me.

WarBiscuit - Lookin At Lee wins the Preakness by 1 1/2 lengths...

Oh no, I missed that about Tropical Heat even though he's in my VS. He raced here many years ago. Really like this ol' warrior and hope he's okay.

I wonder if Carrie Brogden knows that Professional Crush is back racing. Although it doesn't look like Machmer Hall bred her, Carrie Brogden did own her in her previous races. That's a lot of years off there.

LOL. Thanks for giving us the Preakness winner!

Ran sixth in a seven horse field. Chart read "bumped at start, weakened"

Claimed too. New trainer John Servis. New owner Michael Dubb.

Ah, thanks BlindLucky, for the update on Bartletts! Indeed, it seems like I've been watching him forever. Happy to hear that another old soldier has retired safe and
sound. Fine looking young man, and I hope that his retirement is a long and happy one. Thanks again!
