Kentucky Experience: Flew to Cincinatti on Thursday, then drove about 100 miles south to Louisville. Checked in, nap, drinks, late dinner. Up early to hit the Churchill Downs backstretch on Friday morning, did a brief spot on the Scott and BR radio show (1090 AM based in San Diego), then returned back for the races later in the afternoon.

The track was sloppy/muddy (sealed) but played fairly and the final times seemed to be about normal. I only bet a few races on the day, mainly keying in on California invader WHATSTHESCRIPT in the Crown Royal (9th race). He had a very tough trip under Isaias Enriquez and wound up second in a race where he very well may have been best. Came back and hit the Oaks trifecta (only returned $65.50) by keying the Todd Pletcher-trained winner RAGS TO RICHES and runner-up OCTAVE. What a terrific filly the winner is, drawing away late for an authoritative 4 1/4-length victory. I watched her closely during the running of the race and wasn’t sure she was handling the off going but her class showed up through the stretch run.

Hustled to the taxi line just as the rain and lightning show started. Made it back to the hotel fairly unscathed but exhausted. Had dinner with Dennis O’Neill (brother of trainer Doug O’Neill) and Corey Nakatani and both are quietly confident about the chances of GREAT HUNTER in tomorrow’s Derby. They briefly plotted strategy and Nakatani seemed unconcered about post position 20. I asked him if he feels butterflys for the huge events like Derby Day and Breeders’ Cup and he laughed it off. Nakatani has always been a great big-race rider.

O’Neill feels that ‘HUNTER is ready to run the race of his life, which, he says, may or may not be good enough to win the Run for the Roses. So, there’s a little inside scoop that may be helpful tomorrow. The most recent weather report is calling for a 30-50% chance of thunderstorms throughout the day. If we get lucky and the rain stays away, the Churchill main track is capable of drying out extremely quickly.

Tomorrow I will add Kentucky Derby selections and betting strategy to my Hollywood Park Premium Play selections. Remember, last year I hit the trifecta for $5,700 on a $72 investment and plan on using the same strategy tomorrow.
