    Can not believe how smoothly Dale Day calls a race with 12 horses, all wearing pink saddle towels and carrying riders with pink colors. Remarkable job.

    Lincalis He calls a great race for a relatively minor circuit.. like him more than some of Big track callers.

    Not sure why Armando Ramirez felt the need to jaw at or stare down his outside rival, rather than continue to ride out his mount, in the last 40 yards of race 7. Not a good look when you lose by a head.

    Fuzzypants I hate when they do that shit , they need to be called into the stews for that .

    Guillermo Valdivia, thru 4/10: 55 :3-9-9
    Guillermo Valdivia, after 4/10: 37: 13-6-4

    Guillermo Valdivia, this weekend: all horses scratched by stewards.

    Thank you, Oklahoma Racing Commission. And keep going.

    Ace The Test Clenbuterol positive on 4/11, on a $28 winner. Interestingly, the bad test came from the very first day the barn woke up. Wonder if any other positives are coming. Hard to believe that the barn suddenly got hot on that date, but that was the only horse that got some "help".

    Barn had 4 starts on 4/11.. 3 wins, 1 second. WInners were 23-1, 13-1 and 9-2.

    So much for the feel good story of the low profile connections winning the RP Ok Bred Futurity The winner tested positive for Clenbuterol in his trial. It just never ends. It is interesting to see some trainers that used to win at high rates are having an ordinary or terrible meet, so I think the new rules have had an impact, but there is still work to be done.

    douche nozzle Now if we can get admin to follow their own rules. Still no response via email, text, or post on concerns brought forward. Classy and responsible. Not even an F U. There will always be "work to be done", because there will always be those trying to game the system. We just move on to the next thing.

    How's this for bad luck? Charlie's Fury qualifies for the 2018 RP Futurity, but has to scratch out of the final. Later in the year, he crossed the line first in the 266K Black Gold 440 Futurity, but the race is declared no contest. Now in 2019 he qualifies for the RP Derby, but bled in the trial, and since the trial was 13 days before the final, he has to scratch. Just brutal.

    Fuzzypants Oscar top draw and a real human being in my books .

    Props to GR Carter who owned a baby making his career debut in the trials Saturday night, but instead flew out to Los Alamitos to honor a commitment to do an on air appearance Saturday night for the PDJF with TVG. Could have easily begged off when his horse drew into Saturday's trials. His horse won and qualified for the Juvenile (the Consolation).

    I thought I would like these 12 horse fields, but they are demolition derbies. 3/14 race 8, #12 lugs in under a right hand whip and causes severe interference to 4 rivals, as Gonzo Gutierrez displays the form that allowed him to somehow finish 16th in the standings last year when he had the most mounts of any rider. Not even an inquiry.

    Ace The Test I felt like some nights it has been merely somewhat preferable to be drawn inside, and other nights its been very difficult to win when drawn outside. On the days when they run 2yo trials it can be hard to gauge the bias because (a) no one has any established form and (b) there is a wide disparity in the quality of the horses in each trial - some will go on to be stakes runners while others will never break their maidens. So when they aren't very evenly matched, the better horses can overcome a path bias pretty easily. So I am generally in agreement with you but I want to see another week of racing to be sure.

    I'm a little puzzled by some of the short fields we have been seeing. RP never has trouble getting full fields, and some of the fields that went with 6 or 7 horses were OK bred races with great purses. All the big barns from last year have returned except Fernando Carrete/Juventino Ruiz (no one misses them) but i wonder if some outfits have cut back on their RP division based on some new rules. But the short fields kinda eliminates the possible problem with the outside of the track.

    GL to you as well.
