Okay, bets are in stone. I swung by Keeneland on the way home, and the cards fell

$1 Exacta box:
Pioneerof the Nile
General Quarters
Chocolate Candy
I Want Revenge
Friesian Fire

$1 Trifecta Box
Pioneerof the Nile
General Quarters
Chocolate Candy
Friesian Fire

$2 Exacta
Pioneerof the Nile

$2 Across board:
Regal Ransom
Desert Party

$2 Win:
Hold Me Back

That last one was the result of not being sure what to do with my last $2. Total bets: $60.

Right, so I'm not sure how much I can stand of this "whoo! let's talk about FASHION at the Kentucky Oaks" rather than the race. They are catering to women who have never seen a horse before and happened to stumble on Bravo by mistake, and I don't appreciate it. Poor Bob Neumier looked a little horrified when WhatsHerName declared that she chose her horses according to whoever has the best ass. Because she has probably never opened a program before, even though she is commentating on the event. Growl.

5 hellraisers // raise hell

Is that why Bob Neumeier collapsed? Couldn't take any more of the dumb? (I didn't see the broadcast, but I hear a lot of dumb at the track.)

OT: I LOVED KEENELAND! Thank you so much for your help! That place was bananas and so gorgeous. I can see why people go there and then think Saratoga is a dump (it's not, but that's beside the point). I'd kill to be able to go sometime in the fall. I got there in time for the third or fourth race. Better Talk Now wasn't wearing his crazy ass blinkers for the first time in maybe ever and I had a great spot to see his beautiful eyes.

I'm so glad!!!!

I never thought I would call a track other than Churchill "home," but there is NOTHING like Keeneland. There is a little less crazy in the fall, as football season draws off some of the crowd, and I think in general the spring meet is the first real point when people can get OUTSIDE, so they come in droves.

If you come in the fall, let me know! I don't know many people who are as crazy as I am (I'm like a ping pong ball all day - paddock, rail. paddock, rail. etc.), so I'd love good company.

I am crazy and bolting from paddock to rail is absolutely my bag, so that would kick ass. I'm better at it in the autumn, too! I will let you know if/when I make it out there. :D

Too bad Bob Neumier would likely get fired for asking something like "You mean the best jockey ass?"
