It was a decent weekend. Could have been better. Should have been better. More than the usual bad trips, DQs and some crummy racing surfaces too. Speaking of the latter, Rolly Hoyt tweeted Sunday that Oaklawn hasn't had a "fast" track since February 20. That certainly has had an effect on results, not to mention form. We'll have to ferret out what those off track races mean whenever the entered steeds run back.
In all, we 10 winners listed in 24 races, with some nice exactas - $32.20, $19.40, $62.00 and $12.20 (all $2.00 payoffs).
This Saturday promises to be awesome, with the Dubai World Cup, Florida Derby and Louisiana Derby all on tap. We are going to have a huge sheet Saturday, covering most the stakes and several other races on those cards.
