    Show/ 5/ Den's Legacy

    Alt/ 4/ Falling Sky

    WIN 10. Oxbow- Hoping for a big effort here, as most handicappers, we want to see what Oxbow can do with a good trip?! Last time he had a good trip he won by over 11 lengths. Running style looks to fit Gary Stevens perfectly. Pedigree shows 1 1/4 miles on both sides.

    Place 9. Overanalyze- Watch out he's looking to rebound here, could be there.

    Show 5. Den's Legacy- Consistant always right there against the best.

    Alternate 2. War Academy- Maybe another speed ball like Bodemeister here. Impressive 1st, SA AlwOC (3/15/2013-R2). I actually thought about picking him somewhere above, but loyalty got the better of me..lol.

    Alternate 4. Falling Sky - Has 2 good races at Tampa.

    Thx for Hosting Blue Jay.. Excited to see these prep race this week. :)

    Enjoy the race!!!

    @ Zombie Birdhouse- Wow, that was an unexpected, shocking and very upsetting article. Thx for posting though, as we should be informed, it's our right know these things.

    Win: 9 - Overanalyze - Stalker, distance not a problem.

    Place: 10 - Oxbow - Added 1/16th might be a problem as he usually gets gassed at end.

    Show: 2 - War Academy - Not sure why he's the favorite. Good post position, trainer, and jockey, but took 4th in his only graded stakes race and added distance could be a question. Wouldn't be surprised if he won, but I don't think he will.

    Alt: 4 - Falling Sky

    Thanks for Hosting Blue Jay!

    10. Oxbow (KY), G L Stevens, 122, D W Lukas, 5/2 ////// 2. War Academy (KY), M E Smith, 118, B Baffert, 2/1 ////// 8. Frac Daddy (KY), V Lebron, 118, K G McPeek, 15/1 ---- it'll be interesting if the turf scribes have the guts to ask Baffert about the Thoroughbred fatalities associated with his barn over the past months....you can run, but you can't hide. http://www.paulickreport.com/
