Today’s Stakes Pageantry:

Hard to get past the top two morning-line choices in Emerald 5. However, a Bonkers-type Box comes into play in the sixth: #1 Philly Baby, #6 Manny’s Way. Wild-open in Race 7, wild-open, with #6 Princess Kennedy and #3 My Heart Goes On among the living. In the eighth, the likeliest upsetters are #8 Papa Frank, #9 Moon King.

Should be OK for #2 Take the High Road in Hastings 2.

#4 Sneaky Meek can do it in Arapahoe 8, your 2017 Colorado Derby.

Extra for experts: Fargo 7 (darn tootin’!) has the obvious #7 Cozey Deeds appearing prohibitive. Kindly consult your friendly local turf account for your participation in this one.

This sort of day will not soon recur, if ever. We document it here for posterity, to understand that it was done once, to bring a smile to our rheumy eyes some time down the road, perhaps even as early as this evening if nothing goes right today! Hoo-boy.

Sorry, Don Trump Sr. (& Jr.!) fans — not a typo! Real news! Jake Tapper & Gloria Borger got rich off these, even Dr. Chas. Krauthammer had a piece. Well, maybe not the last guy — or any of them. As always, hope you had ’em! Even one would have sufficed. Yeah. Happy!
