    Some behind the scenes photos at Belmont from my friend JF. Not sure who took the race photo op.

    Ha! So it's Rapole then making most of the public noise.

    Odd thing. One thing mentioned in this is that Restoring Hope and Justify were a de facto "uncoupled entry".

    But weren't Rapole's two horses an "uncoupled entry" as well?

    The media loves Rapole because he's outspoken and says shit like this all the time when his horses lose. I don't think he's ever thought another horse was better than his, always some excuse, some chicanery that prevents him from winning.

    In time all of this will be forgotten, Rapole will be forgotten. Justify will be a TC winner forever.

    So I really like CD since the 2016 remodel and how they have upgraded the grandstand area, terrace and dinning rooms. We picked up Breeder Cup tickets for both days during pre-sale. The weather is usually pretty nice. Keenland is a beautiful historic track, but damn I always feel packed in at that place. I haven't been there for years.

    Speaking of fathers day, we are heading out this weekend to CD before spring meet closes.

    I have plans to take him to Keenland when UK is in town, do both.

    I felt very underwhelmed by Churchill, I appreciated the history and all that, and still want to go to a Derby there. I won't turn down BC tickets if she gets them for me, in fact I'd be happy!

    Looking forward to Santa Anita in a few weeks and I am hoping they parade Justify that day, American Pharoah did on the closing Saturday. I know he is shipping there on Sunday, and 6/23 is the last Saturday of the meet. I'm secretly hoping the Seabiscuit tour does swing by the barn, but that is a pipe dream.

    Interesting. I'll have to look that up. I'm interested to see what they do with him going forward.

    So the big money will be on Ax Man then. Be interesting to see just how much money Funny Duck takes after his upset win.

    So what happened, did the breeder cup tickets come thru? Wife and I were at CD on Sunday in the Turf Club Rose Lounge.
    Seriously thinking about getting a Turf Club membership, like what they did to the place.

    Nah. She isn't very good at following though with stuff.

    As a consolation I got an up close event with the penguins at the aquarium.

    Heading to the track to lay bets on the Queens Plate and the mandatory payout Gulfstream Pick 6.

    Wonder Gadot is my key horse in the QP.

    Well, hit on the Queens Plate but lost on the Pick 6 and pick 4.

    On the Pick 6 i had 4 winners, one horse that ran second and one third in the last to just miss out.

    Out in the Pick 4 at Woodine after 2. Second race my horse ran second.

    All of my losers in the verticals lost to the 12 horses. I've banned the number 12 from our house now.
