Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Could be a mild upset in store in NP 7, the John Patrick. F yeah, boyszzz! John Patrick! Remember that guy? Wore a double-breasted blue blazer over a bulky wool turtleneck and strode along the casino floors like the second coming of The Man Who Broke The Bank at Monte Carlo? Yea, verily! Good timesz! Wonder if he and Kevin Trudeau are making plans for a public life together now that same-sex marriage is lawful again in California. As for the race itself, #3 Claresmiezie has the mild-upset look.
Iowa! Fave-longshot hookup in prospect for PrM 7, the Hawkeye State’s Distaff: #2 Flashy American, #4 Cruzette. One race later there, it seems a showdown between the top two choice on the morning line. Sorry!
Yesterday&rsquos; Activity: Open-ended in LaD 7, so Crimson Count, 12-1 morning-line and 13-1 toteboard, held sway at $29.60; runner-up was OK on LifeLiner, and the exacta was $142.
LS 2 had In the Band go gate-to-wire at $23.40 from a morning line of 20-1. Thanks a lot, Grand Prairie! Thanks a lot! LifeLiner array on the coast-to-coast winner was 99-99-93.
Alas, LS 5 found First Bonkersmate Sun Shadow, 20-1 on the morning line and 19-1 at the off, just could not get by in a valiant runner-up effort. The winner qualified on LifeLiner, though, and the saver exacta was $203.

Nocturnal Submission: Walter White: “Let’s cook”. Never have seen that show, by the way. Not even one episode all the way through. Flip you, Walter White. It’s too hot to cook. Night off…
Thank you. Best wishes. Goodbye. ¡Buenas noches, los pollos hermanosz!
