The State of this Union is Sound

The pedigree questions will dog Union Rags from now until the first Saturday in May, and there's another bruiser in Louisiana with pin-fired calves named El Padrino who's just getting warmed up. Out west Baffert holds most of the cards. His speedsters have been progressing in the morning. It looks to be a good year. This weekend we have the San Felipe which lost a little luster with the injury to Out of Bounds, but is still star-studded and the Tampa Bay Derby, which is the race that announces that it's time to get a little serious. 

Picks to come at the end of the week. Hope those in Chicago are enjoying the warm weather.

    That's a really nice watercolor; in fact, I would say it's your best so far. Lots of nice rhythm to it. Love the rail in foreground and the S-curves of the two horses and jockeys.

  2. Thanks Katie Mikolay. I mean Shay D Nickelplay. I put more work into this one.
