I cashed too! Fifty cent paid me $1734.40 on the tri and almost 2 G by the end of the card. Had the super but otw crashed as I was submitting. Would of been $18,000. I also got the last winner in the 13th that paid $19.20.
Looking forward to next year already.

Those two that scratched were bred for Turf and one also had good poly breeding. Look for FTK when he gets on the grass, sp or rt. Should not disappoint and with the surface switch some won't back him so the value should be there. I think IF he would of ran in the slop on the Main he would of had a chance. The other one would of been short in the drive with nothing in the tank.
If you watch Go For Gin the 94 winner of the Derby compared to this years Derby you will see that the half was really fast this year and that changed the dynamics of how the race set up even though both was run in the slop. It was a fun race and Golden Soul made my day getting up for place. When I saw the pays I was really happy. Look for FTK at the Spa later on.

Hay Dang, Don't back FTK tomorrow on top at the Spa. You want the 5 or 9 and don't leave the 7 off the back end of the exotics. Got the breeding but might not yet be ready is all I'm saying. If you do use him on top I would suggest not single him.

Darn it. Rain caused scratches and the distance is now 1 1/8 mile. The 5 is not running today. The 7 is not bred for the distance. FTK is bred for off turf and the distance but I still don't think he will win today.

See, he did not even hit the board. Neither did the 7.
