Road to The Kentucky Derby and Oaks

Today marked the final major day of preps and there really weren’t many surprises. The biggest surprise was Weep no More at 60 to win nailing Rachel’s Valentina on the wire after the three favorites slugged it out the whole way with Cathryn Sophia, the tepid favorite earlier in the Oaks futures, ran a weak 4th in a not very fast race. 404 more words

This is where horses change for the good or bad, try changing racing on different surfaces and mainly foolish trainers and owners getting too excited. It has been a reasonably slow prep season with long shots winning races that fell apart or had no speed in them. 349 more words

Horse Racing time, many good races and Derby and Oaks preps today

Today there are lots of interesting preps for both Derby and Oaks horses. To be fair the best fillies have run a week or two ago. 295 more words

Road to The Kentucky Derby

Unfortunately there is not a lot to report. There are again 2 horses that have remained unbeaten and beat other prep winners and undefeated colts. Many do not know that horses went from money won in certain races with either colts or fillies to specific point races for colts. 563 more words

The Road To The Kentucky Derby

It actually still started foolishly with points given to 2 year olds that all too often do not make the series at all or are sprinters who got lucky. 135 more words
