This will stir-up a lot of controversy: too much ‘woo’, overly touchie-feelie, not the sort of alpha-dog prosperity the preachers pander to. Oh, well.

Oprah split the scene, and the world got a little harder. No?

Free ones: Rundown…

Belmont 4, 6, 7, 10
Gulfstream Park Proper 5
Santa Anita 7, 10

Pay-side (Weekday/Weekend): Today…

Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Belmont 7 on the free page. Woodbine 8 on the pay-side.

Belmont 9 finds us tiptoeing around the morning-line fave, going instead with #1 Crawdaddy, #5 Reason to Soar, #7 Bavaro. Hoo-boy. We’ll see.

On the other hoof, looks difficult to get past the top two morning-line faves in Santa Anita 9. What are you gonna do?

Contentious in Emerald 7, and #7 McKenzie Honey is not out of it.

Grants Pass 7 has favored #7 Ain’t Tellin’ looking OK.
