Tough Louisiana Derby Day

It was a rare tough day for Pope Jude fans Saturday. THE PLAYER broke his sesamoids in the New Orleans Handicap (G2). Lucullan was off slowly in the Muniz Memorial (G2), probably costing us a nice trifecta. (At least the exacta paid $84.00.) and at Gulfstream, Rocketry had more problems than Stormy Daniels. Onward and upward! We'll see what the Sunland Derby (G3) brings today and then it's off to the Florida Derby (G1) for lots of solid stakes action!
