they'd probably shoot me before i even got close to the track...

i'll be there with bells on though... despite the rain. F the rain... with all the alcohol we'll be drinking, the rain won't matter in the least.

Rain could be an equalizer that might hurt Smarty's chances, though he ran well on slop in KY.
Any mudders in the field?

my feet are insanely sore...

i'd like to give a big to the belmont staff, who thought it a better idea to not announce the death of former president reagan so as not to damper the mood heading into the stakes. not a single one of us knew until we got home. the fact that they didn't have a moment of silence before the race... pretty low class if you ask me.


on that note... i had a hell of a time. was about 10 feet from the rail, a length from the finish line... baisicly right where birdstone took over smarty. he broke for his stretch run just a little too soon... oh well... as many a red sox fan have said... there's always next year.

i have to take back my comment on the reagan thing... i saw a picture in the paper today of reagan on the screen at belmont i must've been at the bathroom or at the betting window when they put that on the screen. none of us knew anything about it. oh well...

of course... for the third time in three triple crown races... i had 2 of the 3 horses in my trifecta... smarty and royal assault. if only i had put smarty in an exacta with all the long shots like i was thinkin' of... doh

The mile and a half distance at the Belmont has dashed many a triple crown contender's dreams. Oh well. Damn I wish I had money on Birdstone. Curse you Rock Hard Ten, ran like it was a 6 furlong race.

rock hard 10 and eddington baisicly screwed anyone who bet on them, and smarty jones at the same time...

they pushed out hard early, allegedly to try to get smarty's jockey to also push smarty early, tiring him out. worked too... jockey shoulda just let them pass and take them in the stretch...

smarty's time in the mile and a half was actually very good... unfortunatly he was fast at the wrong times... too fast too early. by the time he hit the home stretch he was out of gas. still only lost by a length. if pat day was on smarty, we'd be lookin' at a triple crown winner.

Yeah I feel like I got screwed by the Jockey switch on Rock Hard Ten, Solis ran a poor tactical race. If Gary Stevens hadn't been stuck in Europe I think he'd at least have finished in the money.
Eh, thats why they call it gambling.
Imagine if you had the Pissed-ons +8 last night, talk about yanking candy right out of a baby's mouth.



In Bed (hadn't heard that one in a long time.)
