Today’s Stakes Pageantry: There were seven scheduled for the Continent today, and one of those was the fifth at Fair Grounds, the La. Futurity. The overwhelming 4-5 morning-line fave was #4 Sittin At the Bar, and V6 did not disagree one bit. All the chalkistas went home with one last odds-on score for 2012, $2.60 to win. Yow!
V6 was hot for #7 Hot Fun in Race 4 at the Laurel, the Md. Juv. Filly Ch. S., and that one ran second, at even-money, to the second-choice in the wagering.
Finally, the Kruytbosch Memorial was the eighth at TuP today, and we went a-flyin’ on #2 Migiwewin; no good. We drink Champagne tonight anyway.

Nocturnal Submission: Modest…only Veuve Clicquot over here? How’s by you?
Thank you. Best wishes. Tomorrow, a rare double-dose Tuesday hair-of-the-dawg special for your first day of 2013: “Tuesday Sniping” plus a holiday “First Post”. ¡Salsa caliente! Until such time, it’s goodbye to 2012. Drive safely.
