Editor's Note--No technical difficulties today. We made it back from Vegas in one piece (well kinda) and although there was no joy in Louisville for us at the Derby, Big D feels good about the Preakness, baby! He's got a pick for today's Black Eyed Susan race too from Pimlico?!? Oh what good fortune we have. Or we WILL have! And without further adieu-do......the Big Man is here! Goooooooooooo!
Thank you Richie. And a belated happy birthday to you. A BIG <cough> <cough> one. We're glad outside of the Derby, you did well at the other investment vehicles in Nevada. A birthday gift from the gamblin gods, if you will. And now? We will.....
The BLACK EYED SUSAN is not only the name of the signature adult beverage for the Preakness, it is also the name of a race. For VERY talented 3 year old fillies. The sister race to the Preakness. And it goes off TODAY at 4:50 Eastern Time at Pimlico Race Course. Race 11. It's a very even race. And for investors, that is MUSIC to our ears. Cause odds are (pun intended), if you catch the winner? You gawn git paiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid! We think we got the winner. JIMMY JERKENS is a sneaky, good trainer. The jockey RAJIV MARAGH can win races too. They don't do it often, but when this jockey/trainer combo happens? They are 7 for 21 in WINNING the last year. That's a nice 33% batting average. The filly is the #4 FULL HOUSE. And we will have a FULL HOUSE of cash when she comes first at odds of 12-1 today! She's never finished less than 3rd in her career. Play her to win! And for a nice longshot exacta play? Try her with the #5 LIGHTS OF MEDINA. Enjoy it with a nice BLACK EYED SUSAN drink.
On Saturday, we have the 142nd running of the PREAKNESS. It's the 13th at Pimlico at 6:48pm Eastern. Now the #4, ALWAYS DREAMING, is going to be about 3-5 when the race goes off. Look, plenty can happen. The rider can fall off. The horse could run the wrong way. The trainer can tell the jockey to keep him in the gate, and give everyone a head start, to see how good the pony is. We will go against any of those things happening. Ergo.....
ALWAYS DREAMING is the clear class of this crew. Look for him to be out near the front, or even in front, right out of the gate. When he comes roaring down the lane, he will have more gas than the rest of these boys. The WINNER #4. LOOKIN AT LEE the #9 ran a nice formidable Derby and came in 2nd. We like him to do the same here. And he might be 10-1. Not sure why. Finally, the #1 MULTIPLIER has gotten better in each of his 4 races. He's figurin out the game. We like that. We also like that he is going to be 30-1. Put him in a trifecta box with the aformentioned other 2, and have another BLACK EYED SUSAN, friend.
So the happy Preakness weekend recap: TODAY: RACE 11 PIMLICO. #4 to win. #4-#5 exacta box. SATURDAY: RACE 13 PIMLICO. THE PREAKNESS. #4 to win. #4-#9 exacta box. #4-#9-#1 trifecta box.
There you have it. And we anticipate when ALWAYS DREAMING wins? The entire borough of Brooklyn will show up at Belmont Park in 3 weeks to see potential history happen. His owners are from Brook-ah-leeen, baby! Get your tickets early.
Finally, it's hard to believe this tune was 40 years ago. If you can watch the short interview afterwards. At the 4:20 mark there is NO way that is water that Dick gives Kenny in that styrofoam cup. Best of luck players. God bless.
