Monday Morning Hot Walk: I Have No Idea Who Is Winning

  • Apparently there is no way to start a league.  I can't even find a way to find a compiled leader board.  Also, I have nothing beside my point tally (though I know it's zero and nothing telling me where I rank).  Nice.    
  • In related news, I have changed my mind on this revamp of the Road to the Roses.  I'm not liking anything about it.  If anybody has any good ideas let me know.  
  • Orb looked good taking the Florida Derby.  Lines of Battle also looked the same in UAE Derby.  Nothing really stood out for me in either race.  
  • Loved the grit of Revolutionary in the Louisiana Derby.  Lots of traffic issues for horses so I don't know what to make of some of those behind.  I had Palace Malice and he had significant trouble.  
  • Continue to donate to Old Friends even without our beloved league.  
Other News:
  • Animal Kingdom was very impressive in the World Cup Classic.  I love the Dubai World Cup.  The whole card is amazing and exciting.  They put on a great show there.  
  • D. Wayne Lukas, Calumet Farm, Gary Stevens, Shug McGaughey, Phipps Stables are all prominent in this year's prep races.  Is it the 1980s?
  • I did not see the Kevin Ware injury.  I did not watch any replay and never will watch it.  I didn't watch the Nerlens Noel injury and never will.  I don't watch replays of horse or jockey injuries.  Really not a fan of replaying such events.  
  • Your song of the day is Little Fluffy Clouds by Orb.  I've always loved this track.  Let's go to Sparks!  I just dated myself.

  1. They really half-assed the RTTR this year. My guess is that they weren't going to do it at all, got all the fan backlash and then threw this up at the last minute to try and placate people. Very disappointing effort from CD this year.

    I thought Revolutionary looked awfully game, especially considering how much ground he lost on the far turn.
