Kentucky Derby 2020

#84
I have a setting that provides me a list within a couple of seconds of the horses running that day that fall within a certain layoff range that I like.....especially helpful on a "normal" saturday with a lot of tracks

its starts at 29 days to 165 days off and then I increase the 165 to around 200 as we get deeper into the year...i like at least a month off

I once heard a good angle about horses coming off the Vets List.

The theory claimed a horse finally gets inspected by a competent horseman when they visit a licensed veterinarian.

it was weird missing the Derby broke a long string for first Saturday in May long weekend at Churchill.



will be interesting what Preakness actually does, they had a rumor that went everywhere it would be a month after the dERby but then hold the phone that info was refuted as not yet defined. maybe they want to run first. belmont will PROP run before Derby and they will PROP change distance, that is my guess.

Change the distance of the Belmont Stakes?

Blasphemy.

Belmont Park has presented the Belmont Stakes at 12 furlongs since 1926.

No one goes to the races anymore, but I'm eager to be trackside to see live racing again.

As far as I know, every track is returning to action without spectators.

Belmont Stakes now set for Saturday, June 20.

It will serve as the first leg of the Pandemic Triple Crown.

To be contested at nine furlongs, not twleve.

First time since 1926 that the race will not be run at a mile-and-a-half.
