I like Papa Clem, he was my Derby horse and he has improved more than the others in the last 3 months, also we he rolls in the lane I like to shout, "Call me Big Poppa"

once you have gone to that other dimension, no wagering, you see things differently. I like All/All/All post sobriety. Hold on now, before you stone me.......In the Derby it would have cost $6,840 yet paid $41,000. Grasshopper leaves the Temple often now. That damn pebble.

I like Papa Clem on top of Rachel Alexandra. Maybe not that doesnt sound very good.

Ray Paulick stole my picks!!! Just Kidding, I think Papa Clem is the weakest link in that tri, I'll probably have another one with a different horse on the bottom. Pete

AMERICAN RASCAL (the four-year-old Texas-Bred Gelding, who shuttles between Rockdale and Grand Prairie) picks:

1) Mine That Bird (Hey, us geldings have to stick together).

2) Rachel Alexandra (they should have left her with Hal, and she would have won).

3) Pioneerof the Nile( because he's been to all the tracks I'll never see, like Saratoga, Keeneland, Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Churchill). I'm stuck down here with Retama, Houston and the Gillespie Co. Fair).

Dear Mr. Talk,
Before revealing my Preakness contenders, we must first check with the National Weather Service:

TODAY: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon.
TONIGHT: A slight chance of showers and a thunderstorm.
SATURDAY: Showers and thunderstorms likely.
So, with the likely probability of “sloppy” or most-certainly wet-track conditions, here are my top-5contenders in-order:

Rachel Alexandra
Musket Man
Pioneer of the Nile
Friesan Fire
Big Drama

If however the track were rated “fast”, the top-5 contenders in order would be:

Rachel Alexandra
Big Drama
Musket Man
Pioneer of the Nile
General Quarters

Rachel Alexandra, especially if the track comes up wet. She's proven what she can do on a wet track!

SureBetGreg said...

This years triple crown chase is very entertaining. So many stories it is making my head spin. I would like to go against the filly in the Preakness but it is just too hard to go against such a monster. Big Drama bring his win streak into the Preakness and could be the real deal. But from SureBet Racing there are no surprises: We are going with Rachel.
