Editor'a Note--When last seen, BIG D was getting the exacta correct in the Kentucky Derby. No, his pick to win didn't come in, and it wasn't the biggest payout ever, BUT it was some money. Now there is more money to be had in wet Maryland today! And even some money in dry (indoors) Cleveland!! Let's get goinnnnnnnnnnn!--R.B.
Thanks Richie, we are finally back to normal after seeing your pals the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan LATE into Thursday night. Sheesh....A good time was had by all. At least that's what people are saying.....
JUSTIFY looks like the real deal. We can't mess around with him. We'll take him to win.
GOOD MAGIC is most likely the 2nd best 3 year old of his class. We'll include him in an exacta box. You may now say "Big D, neither of those plays are gonna really pay a lot." And that's why we have.....
Finally, based on the weather in Maryland right now (WET!), you made need a SAILOR to get around in a boat. BUT, LONE SAILOR, the horse, DESTROYED the field in Saratoga last year in the slop. He gets IRAD ORTIZ on board.....about the best jockey in the world. The price? Oh maybe 15 or 20-1. Let's include him in the trifecta. Happy Preakness!
Oh and in CLEVELAND? The halftime line is CAVS-5.5 and the full game line is CAVS -6. Boy does that look fishy. That's why we'll lay the lumber with the home team in the FIRST HALF as a last gasp versus the Celtics.
The happy "143rd Preakness" recap: 7 to 'Win. 7-5 exacta box. 7-5-2 trifecta box. And in the NBA CLEVELAND-5.5 in the 1st half vs Boston. Stay dry! Good luck. God bless!
