Tuesday Night Notes - May 31

- Silverfoot is the second 2005 graded stakes winner for his sire With Approval, whose T.H. Approval became his 40th stakes winner when he won the San Juan Capistrano last month. He changed tactics in the G3 Louisville Handicap at Churchill and took the lead, since the pace in the 11f race was ridiculously slow at 1:18.37 and 1:43.28 for a mile. They then sprinted home the last three furlongs in :35 4/5. His jockey Robbie Alvarado was worried about Rapid Proof.

"He'd been haunting me all winter in New Orleans," Albarado said, referring to Rapid Proof's skirmishes with America Alive, on whom Albarado won the Grade I Woodford Reserve Turf Classic on Derby Day. "The only thing is I thought the three turns might confuse him." [Courier-Journal]
Indeed, while Rapid Proof denied being confused, he appeared disoriented afterwards and had to be restrained from attempting to enter himself in the 8th race.

Thoroughbred Daily News describes the margins in the G3 Lone Star Park Handicap as: NO, NO, NO. It sounds like it could be the cries of TV viewers when their favorite show is pre-empted by a presidential press conference. Actually, it signified the wild, four horse blanket finish, with Supah Blitz (Mecke) getting the nod. Mecke is by Maudlin, by Foolish Pleasure; and Supah Blitz has Colonal Moran in his dam's pedigree - 3 fine racehorses I remember well from the 70s/80s that you don’t see all that much in pedigrees these days.

- The Jackson guy in Kendall-Jackson wines has purchased a one-third interest in Ghostzapper for that popular price ‘undisclosed sum.’ He’s also purchased the old Buckram Oak Farm, which was renamed Stonestreet; according to Bloodhorse, he has 150 to 180 mares there.
One of the mares Jackson bought privately was Maggy Hawk, dam of Preakness (gr. I) winner Afleet Alex. "I wanted her right after I saw Alex break his maiden by (11 1/4 lengths) at Delaware Park," he said.
92-year-old John Nerud compared Ghostzapper to some of his own.
“In Reality, Dr. Fager, Cozzene and Fappiano - and all were milers, and three of them became great sires," Nerud said. "To tiptoe a mile you have to have a great amount of speed and a great amount of lung power. Milers make the sires and the Met has made the sires for years." [Daily Racing Form]
As for Ghostzapper, the Form reports that Frankel was not as definitive about the Suburban being Ghostzapper's next start as he was on Monday. He earned a Beyer of 122.

I just came across a great gardening website called AtlGardening.com*. Not only does it feature articles for the gardening enthusiast, but has become a great garden state
resource for me in my landscaping effort. The webmaster of this site has recently added a book section that seemed to expand everytime I go there.
What I like about it is that I get instant access to the book and don't have to wait for the book(s) to arrive which of course saves me money.....no shipping charges.... in some cases. Great idea. I love it. You must check it out today. Let me know what you think.

I like to gamble. I like to gamble a lot. I've also made quite a comfortable living in the casinos.
best gambling web site has been a casino online where I have been a consistent winner. best gambling web site is an Egold casino with instant payouts.
They run a fair shop and aren't out to cheat anyone.
As a professional gambler, I highly recomend them for online gambling.

By the way, I like your blog quite a bit.

Thanks,
Have a great day.
