    And for this year's thread there's no question mark after "Beyond" because, starting many months ago, some of us have really gone way out there trying to find this year's Derby winner. <Moves>

    But you'd probably have at least a little bit of crazy horse person in you to understand. :D

    @t6p and @BluntTrauma21 (or anyone else) this may actually be the year the WinStars have aligned for us all over again if you guys are up for a little fun again. :D

    Plus it would be great to get back into this with some old friends again;

    I used to once in a while, G, but it's been at least a few years since I've done so. I've basically just been betting the horses in recent years, although not much at all over the past year or so. Just getting back into it.

    Almost all my posts are from up in the boxing forum, and then a couple of horse racing threads I started here some time ago.

    I probably should have mentioned that the race is 11 days away on May 1st, shouldn't I?

    It's always good to get a head start down the thought process, though.

    Hey Blunt. Great to see you again. It's been. That's about it. Just mostly waiting for this virus stuff to take a hike so I and everybody can get back to some normalcy. How about you? And how's the little one?

    Don't worry too much about getting back into this too quickly, bud. I'm basically just getting ready for the Derby, and hoping to hype some of you guys up for it. But it's still a week and a half away, so plenty of time for us to overthink things. I am really looking forward to the race, though. Should be a good one.

    Yeah man this pandemic is nuts hopefully we can get past it and back to normal soon enough. I'm doing alright, some health issues keep coming up in the family but everyone's okay for the moment. Hoping it stays that way. The kitty is doing well, she's been esp active recently, a lot of purring and running around like a madwoman, talking even moreso than usual and she's got a big mouth in general, haha, but healthy and happy nonetheless. Hopefully Bella is living it up as well..

    Glad you shouted me out was looking to reach out to you and T recently but forgot to do so. Looking forward to making some money off these ponies, your excitement is contagious! Time to dig up my notebook and get back to the Sharkey Formula and look at some E2 angles, etc.

    Sharkey!

    That name rings out for horse race handicapping on Sherdog.

    I had your threads bookmarked for a year or so.

    Yeah, I am so done with this pandemic thing. It's been a big struggle for all us. But at least things have been getting better and the end has been in sight for a while. It will be nice to get out and about again considering I've basically stayed in the house for pretty much the whole year. Just trying to avoid getting caught up in the shit.

    Sorry to hear about the family, though, my friend, and glad things have been okay lately. Hope your brother's doing okay as I was reading that thread the other day when you were talking about how he reacted to Creator's Belmont. Good times.

    Bella's doing great. Spoiled as usual. And she has her 9th birthday coming up on Derby day, so hopefully some of that spoiling rubs off on us. :)

    But yeah, I'm so ready for the Derby. I mean, you know me and the ponies. If I can't get excited about the Derby then, you know.

    BP!

    Great to see you again too, bud. Hopefully the last year has treated you okay considering.

    You ready to try to make a little something on the races again? It'll be nice to get back into things again, that's for sure.

    Guys, if you have a few moments, don't be shy about checking out my friend's music video in the opening post. She actually has a great eye for picking horses believe it or not. In fact she might rival @t6p for trifecta master supremacy, albeit her methods are a wee bit strange to say the least as seen by her pick for this year's Derby :D

    Well shit, Blunt. Let's try to make a few more this Triple Crown season. Who knows, we may get lucky again.

    Speaking of patterns, Blunt, have a look at this guy's pace figures (E1-E2-LP) if looking for a bit of a longshot to fill out exotics. His most recent race listed first;

    Super Stock

    101-104-86 (NPT, E2, LET)
    77-80-95
    -----layoff-----
    79-79-104
    80-84-89
    87-89-84
    96-98-83
    89-98-90
    87-77-80

    Fits using both rhyme and reason, and should be a pretty juicy prize on Derby day.
