    Shit, NO......I'm not talking Biden/Harris/Pocahontas et al. I'm talking The Travers Stakes, coming on 8/24 from Saratoga. This one is going to be special. Main competitors are Maximum Security (dq-ed in Ky Derby), War of Will (Preakness), Game Winner (Bob Baffert), Tax (Jim Dandy), Tacitus (2nd Belmont), Owendale (Ohio Derby) and lots more. This will be an incredibly competitive betting race if all show up.

    "Well I hear you went up to Saratoga and your horse naturally won, then you flew your Lear Jet to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun....."

    Attention Bucket Listers- Total solar eclipse coming to Ohio, including Cleveland, in April 2024.

    According to Carly, Warren Beatty was one of three who inspired her to write this song.
    The other two remain unidentified by Simon. She did say that Mick Jagger is NOT one
    of the three. Mick sings backup on the song.

    Could Von Duck be one of the missing pieces? Hmmm!

    Yes, Highest Honors is a probable starter. He appears fresh but is taking a big jump in class. Will be a helluva price in a short, but talented field.
    I doubt that War of Will or Tax will run. I think that they need rest.

    I'm heading to Simulcast (Mountaineer) for Friday and Saturday. They are VERY GENEROUS in comping rooms and food. I'll be betting the later half of Friday's
    card and all of Saturday.

    I think superrick and carly have the same milliner

    too bad lid couldn't convince carly to wear one of his special skunk hats, would have made him famous, not only famous in the craps world.

    SHIT.........Game Winner withdraws from Travers Stakes due to fever. Game Winner
    owned by Gary West who also also owns Maximum Security who is currently listed
    as 'possible' for the Travers. Look for Maximum Security to run while Game Winner
    gets well and runs in the Pennsylvania Derby in September. The Travers should still
    be a great race but we can't afford to lose another major contender.

    So how much does it cost to make this tri-box? You should use the horses names, rather than the numbers, to avoid confusion, or was that the plan? :cool:

    when you go to the window...you don't use names....

    Because you are obviouly new to this let me explain......a trifecta requires you select the first, second and third horses in their exact order of finish, my 4 horse box involves 24 combinations......bet1 dollar and the ticket costs 1 x 24.........I'll let you figure out the cost for a 1 dollar ticket and a 2 dollar ticket......let me know if you can't figure it out and I'll provide the answer.
