    Tacitus came up short also- not ready for Prime Time. Amazing how some of these " great";horses fail to fire!

    Hard to tell how a horse is feeling on any given day. They are not machines, they've flesh and blood. :cool:

    But they at times choke I e Big Brown worst performance of a favorite in a weak field in the history of horse racing.

    If any horse is only 98%, he won't hit the board. You've jogged haven't you Dave? Some days your legs are lively and quick, and for no known reason, the next day, they're lead. Horses most likely have those Pb days also. :cool: I doubt if many of these horses, know enough to "choke", though some seem to be pretty keen to the game. Perhaps it is the "handicapper", that "chokes".

    So what did your tickets cost? Let's see $20 win + $18 under-wheel, + $24 trifecta $1 box 4 horses. $62 returned $96. Small, but it's a winner. :)
    I think I just saw DeMango, at the Hard Rock, he looks just like Homer Simpson, only a little shorter. :cool:

    Had a nice 2 days in Las Vegas/Belmont. Finished +$173 because of the Belmont Stakes.
    Unfortunately, gave it all back (plus some) at the craps tables. Still have a one night to go
    before leaving to catch a 5:25 am flight back to the grandchildren in Maryland. Retired
    life is awesome. Crab cakes tomorrow for dinner is a lock!

    MisterInside will be taking some time off until the Travers Stakes at Saratoga in August.

    To my friend 777......Sorry that I missed your call Saturday. VD is right about the math.
    I cost you $32. That was an exciting final 1/16th of a mile.

    Haven't heard from Crispy. What gives?
