    If you had clicked on the link:

    "Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes. Cool and place in a covered container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight. Make one julep at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces of Kentucky Bourbon. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint."

    #4 Golden Soul
    Golden Soul is a last-minute Derby entrant. He didn't have enough qualifying points to be in the top 20, but with a few dropping out, he's now in the field. But... you can maybe take a little positivity out of this race for a horse that might just be the longest shot on the board- He got 4th in the Louisiana Derby, but was so far back in this race, that he closed from miles away to get that 4th place finish. He had to run widest around the track to do it too. If you watch the clip of this race, watch the #4 horse (yes he's the #4 horse in the Derby, but he was the #4 in the Louisiana Derby too). He breaks clean, but just is really sluggish coming out. As the race unfolds, you can't even see him in the screen he's so far back. But you see him start to pick off horses in the stretch. He never threatened to win the race, but it doesn't look like an extra 1/8 of a mile will be any issue for him. He'll be a deep closing type like Java's War. But is he as good as Java's War? So if you're playing exactas and trifectas, if you're looking for a big longshot underneath, he's not the worst horse to include.
    So... yeah... I didn't have any win $$$ on Orb, but I had him on top in both my exacta and trifecta boxes. But Golden Soul? Wut?!?!?!?... I did say some complimentary things about him. And unlike in the Louisiana Derby, today he broke sharply and was able to show off that closing kick on the rail. I think the only way anyone had Golden Soul in their exacta and tri tickets is if you went Orb with all, with all (meaning you bet the whole field to get 2nd and 3rd) in 2nd and 3rd lol. I just couldn't see it. Java's War was supposed to be the hard closer lol. But the last 2 sentences on my write-up on Golden Soul kinda came back to bite me lol (the bolded section in the quote).

    The question I have for the Preakness and Belmont going forward, will a lot of these horses try again if they think they can get a fast dirt track next out. The mud can f things up for a lot of these. But Orb has looked good all along, so this win today was no fluke. Much respect if you had a win ticket on him at 6-1. STEALING. STEALING!!!!

    Nada. I had my win money on Verrazano and Java's War. I had Orb in exacta boxes, but no Golden Soul. I'm just glad I decided to pair down my exacta and trifecta tickets a little bit. They were expensive enough after being paired down, but I would've wasted more money on them if I didn't lol. Golden Soul would've been on none of my tickets.

    Because of the wet track, I wonder how many trainers will use that as an excuse to try again in the Preakness or wait for the Belmont in 2 weeks.

    Preakness picks-
    Orb, Governor Charlie, Departing.

    Not betting much on it, going heavy on the undercard instead

    If it weren't for putting $100 on Creative Cause... but goddamn mid-stretch all three horses were 1-2-3. But Creative Cause just had no gas left. What coulda been if he held on for 3rd...
    Last year, I had a winning ticket on the Kentucky Derby. I had to take a picture of it, just to prove that it happened. Because that, and the other 2 Triple Crown races for that matter eternally curse me lol. And I only sort of won. I still picked the wrong winner and dumped a bunch of money on him, but I at east hit the big exacta to save my behind (won $750).

    So let's see if this blind squirrel can find his nut on Saturday for the Belmont. On paper, it might be the best race betting-wise in... decades? Orb (the Kentucky Derby winner) will be the luke-warm favorite, with Oxbow (the Preakness winner) and Revolutionary (3rd in the Kentucky Derby) will also be at short-odds. So if those are your favorites, and they look vulnerable, you can see that's not scaring off a lot of horses from trying to beat them this time around. I can't remember a Belmont that's had more than 10 or 11 horses in a lot of years, and this year has 14.

    For Orb to be in this race (3 races in 5 weeks), his trainer must think that the horse is still in good form, and maybe just didn't like the Pimlico surface (where the Preakness is run). So I'm drinking the Kool-Aid on Orb one more time. I plan on pairing him up with a bunch of longshots in exacta and trifecta bets.

    Freedom Child dominated a stakes race called the Peter Pan. The track was super muddy just like the Kentucky Derby was this year. He ran to the lead and never looked back. The Peter Pan is historically a race for 3 year olds not ready, or not good enough to run in the Kentucky Derby. So it's questionable what he beat, but he was so dominant in doing so, I wanna see if he can repeat that effort.

    Incognito was also one of the horses in the Peter Pan that was dominated by Freedom Child. But did he just hate the mud? He's owned by Sheikh Mohamed bin Rasheed al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai. The horse is so well-bred. They've brought him along slowly, and I'm thinking that since they're gving the Belmont a try, that's he's primed for a big effort.

    Todd Pletcher once again has an absurd amount of horses in this field. Including a filly running against the boys, with female Jockey Rosie Napravnik riding her. But I'm gonna try and beat that horse, and use one of his over-looked entrants- Overanalyze. The horse dominated the Arkansas Derby, and then got smoked in the Kentucky Derby. Just hoping with a month rest, and that maybe he hated the mud, that he has a big comeback in him.

    So Orb, with Overanalyze, Freedom Child, and Incognito. But as Bug pointed out, I haven't been right about much thus far.

    It's gonna rain all day today at Belmont, and looks like could be the case tomorrow too due to what's left of that tropical storm going up the east coast.

    Horses that did well in the slop in the Kentucky Derby-
    Orb (he won)
    Golden Soul 2nd
    Revolutionary 3rd

    Freedom Child won easily in the slop in the Peter Pan run over this same Belmont Surface.

    So those guys are all good bets if the track is muddy, but you also won't get very good odds on any of them
