Good News/Bad News
The good news is did you see Sir Cherokee's Arkansas stretch run??????????????? That was The BEST!
The other good news is Peace Rules won, Empire Maker did as expected, my horse Kissin Saint overcame his objection, Brancuse won me money and I still have over $100 in my account.
The bad news is my predictable last minute stupid changes cost me and I bet those longshots in the Wood, didn't bet Funny Cide, who came in second, and I won $10.10 and bet $36, so I'm down $26.
I probably would've done the same thing if I had it to do over again; I just wish I bet that longshot in the Arkansas Derby. I almost did, but I didn't want to lose more than I already did. I am an ass.
All in all, the thrill always really comes when you see a horse win like Sir Cherokee. The best race was the Arkansas Derby, in my book. I just love those closers.
