May 7, 2011
Many of our excited fans at Oaklawn went home dissatisfied with the results on Oaks Day. Most of the races went to the chalk, but the two chalk who mattered to a good local Simulcast crowd were Arienza and Joyful Victory and they both bombed.
Now the hopes all rest on Archarcharch and Nehro in the Kentucky Derby and, to a lesser extent, on Silent Tiger in the Churchill Downs Stakes. As usual we'll have our picks for the day and hope for the best. Enjoy your Derby Day and I hope you're here at Oaklawn and can also share in our live and silent auctions for the benefit of the American Cancer Society.
