Re: Kentucky Derby Selections

There comes a time when one must realize that overanalysis is counterproductive and only results in more confusion. I've liked Tax since last year's Remsen. I've liked Win Win Win since January. So I'm going with these two. Then I'll throw in War of Will, Game Winner, and Plus Que Parfait for some e...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

It's hard to ignore Bellafina. Hopefully the second trip to Churchill turns out better than the first. I really like Restless Rider but I'm worried that she's under-prepped with only one start this year. Lady Apple and Champagne anyone deserve respect after their previous victories.

Re: The Derby Points System and the Decline of the American 2yo: A Statistical Analysis

This is a great read, but I have to admit some of it went over my head. I took statistics in college and immediately forgot most of it. Why is a p-value of 0.0003 significant?

Everybody has forgotten about Harvey Wallbanger. I wonder if he can repeat here. I like Bourbon War the most. Maximum Security is a mystery with the class jump and longer distance.

The Coolmore deal was on the table long before the announcement.

Yes, thank you. I recall vague r...
