Wireplayers Derby Dozen Poll, the Spiral Stakes dartboard and Remembering Ami
The Wire Players Derby Dozen Poll number 3 is out and Cairo Prince remains on top.
Hopportunity jumped into our Poll at #6. I have the feeling the Derby road runs through Arkansas this year.
Running through Kentucky today is the Turfway Park Spiral Stakes. Tomorrow is the Sunland Derby: two preps that launched Derby winners in recent years.
White is black and black is white.
I don't have time or energy to ramble too much about the Spiral so I'll let the handicap speak for itself.
Finally, I said goodbye to longtime Turk cat, Ami today. Ami was feral when she moved into my yard a decade ago. It took time and patience to earn her trust, but we did earn it and she led a good healthy life until a few months ago when she suddenly developed lung cancer. She was a tough cat, most likely from having to survive everyday outdoors. She fought the last few months bravely. She waits by the Rainbow Bridge for my family now.
