Been a Few Days. I know This...

Around the horse-blog-o-sphere, my compatriots have been well documenting everything that is going on.

Jessica at Railbird notes only 12 days to go until Saratoga (Del Mar only has 6 days until opening)

Alan at Left at the Gate keeps us informed on the short fields and low-priced winner sat Belmont and reminds us how pleasant and refreshing a trip to Monmouth Park can be (if you haven't been, you MUST go!)

So I will let all of you know about something cool in terms of Handicapping Tourneys... The NTRA is sponsoring a free, on-line handicapping tournament Saturday, based around the Claiming Crown Day at Canterbury. It is free, and all you have to do is sign up here
  • Claiming Crown Handicapping Challenge

  • And of course, I am sure everyone is well aware of the travesty taking place with injured jockey Shannon Cambell and how she is getting royally screwed by the sport that we all love. Here is the latest from
  • Paralyzed rider's coverage: $50K

  • In other non-horse, betting news, the WSOP is down to its final table. If you don't want to know who is left....
