    No Derby winner, no Preakness winner. Wonder what NYRA has thought of that might get people to the track.

    2 Spangled Star, Garrett Gomez, 30-1
    3 Uptowncharlybrown, Rajiv Maragh, 10-1
    4 Make Music for Me, Joel Rosario, 10-1
    5 Fly Down, John Velazquez, 9-2
    6 Ice Box, Jose Lezcano, 3-1
    7 Drosselmeyer, Mike Smith, 12-1

    That'll be a hell of a trick by Alan Garcia. Must have some wide stance thing going.

    If Edgar Prado had a horse, I'd put $100 on it just because.

    A friend had no favorite in the Sarava Belmont. Loved Prado. Saw Edgar and 70-1 and made a killing. Would never tell me how much he put down but it was significant.

    They're still running the Belmont? Huh.

    Make Music for Me closed well in the Derby...so could be in the mix for me.

    Trifecta, are the Garcias related? Just curious, I know it is a common name.

    Ice Box seems like an obvious choice. He was flying at the end of the Derby.

    Bo-rail, starting on the rail, at 20-1?

    Not unless it's super distant. One's from Peru, the other Mexico.

    He hasn't come off his left lead in his last two races, including the Fla Derby win. Not looking to go there, at < 3-1.

    is Danica Patrick going to be one of the jockeys?

    Weather should be decent; t-storms should hold off until after nightfall.

    The aftermarket on good seats is grotesquely soft, with enormous discounts
    available (think Orioles tickets). I'm not sure there'll be 40K there, but
    I'm guessing the announced attendance will be in the 45K range. The
    supporting card is sheer dynamite. Expect to be there for that, the networking and the laughs.
