what kind of ride did spanish ice get? jockey never asked that horse to run one inch

It was one of the more curious and frustrating races I watched this weekend.


Re: my MKB horse Giant Oak, I understand he has heads turning at the Fairgrounds.

Jessica Pacheco and I were talking during her visit to NYCOTB this past weekend about Derby horses, and she is very high on Giant Oak.  By the way, it was great to see C, Blue Horseshoe, and mpm101 as well as a few lurkers at the OTB branches on Sunday.  Thanks for coming out!


Dan, can please find his PPs for us?  He's not running in $10K claimers anymore, is he?

From the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation website:

"Once one of the top sprinters in the country, Shake You Down finished third in the 2003 Breeders' Cup Sprint and won six stakes races, including the Smile Sprint Handicap and the True North. With age and with the typical aches and pains that often come from a long career, he started to slow down and was racing in $14,000 claimers in early 2007 at Laurel. To their credit, owner Robert Cole and trainer Scott Lake did not want to take any risks with a horse who had been so good to them, so they retired Shake You Down when he was still sound and healthy and donated him to the TRF. A grand-looking chestnut, he exudes class, says TRF farm manager John Evans."

Has anybody heard anything about Spenditallbaby?? She was pulled up early in her race and vanned off.
Steve T

From Steve Anderson's article posted last night at 5:46 pm:

"Spenditallbaby, who was pulled up on the first turn of the Distaff with a sesamoid injury to her right foreleg, may undergo surgery later this week, trainer Barry Abrams said on Sunday.
Abrams emphasized that it was unclear whether Spenditallbaby could survive the injury.
"It's a matter of whether she doesn't get any infection and the circulation is good," Abrams said. "The first time she shows any discomfort, we won't let her suffer. If she can survive the next four or five days, we can save her as a broodmare."
Spenditallbaby has won 5 of 32 starts and $469,173. She has won two stakes for California-breds - the Fleet Treat Stakes at Del Mar in 2007 and the B. Thoughtful Stakes at Hollywood Park last April."

Hopefully, she'll recover.


Does anyone know what happened to Cribnote?  I really thought he had potential.

I've heard that he was injured after the Champagne, but will have to do some more research in the next few days.


Will look into This One's For Phil's Beyer leap over the next few days.  My hunch is that it's a projected figure based on You Luckie Mann's previous numbers, but that is just a hunch.  I'll find out more soon.

Great handicapping by our posters over the last few days with several longshot winners in marquee races.  Also, congrats to our FormBloggers that did so well in the NHC. 

Back tomorrow with HG118 plays.

Take care,
