A good song for the end of your 2012. We close our eyes and dream and another year has come and gone

Free ones: Rundown…

Aqueduct 2, 5, 8, 9
Santa Anita 4, 7, 8

Pay-side: Today…

Turfway 5, 6, 10
Laurel 3, 6, 9
Fair Grounds 3, 4, 6, 9
Turf Paradise 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9
Golden Gate 3, 6

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.
