Crying Uncle


Two big Derby preps today and we'll stay in the East for the Wood Memorial in Aqueduct where the first question on everyone's mind: Is Social Inclusion for real? I'm not smart enough to know that before Saturday at about 6:20 p.m. but I do know my money will be elsewhere. Call it the Missouri Syndrome.

Beating four horses on a speed-favoring surface with a short stretch run at the 1-1/16 mile distance, including a horse, Honor Code, who came out of the race off the Triple Crown trail, does not put me on any bandwagon--certainly not at 2-1 on the early line. I'll stay with proven commodities.

I've been waiting for Uncle Sigh (5-1) to draw a position outside his nemesis, undefeated Samraat (7-2). He has, and I'm willing to give him a chance to presumably run down his rival instead of the other way around.

Taking Uncle Sigh to win at 3-1 or greater, key-boxing him in exactas with his two rivals above and with Harpoon (8-1), adding Noble Moon (12-1), bar shoe and all, and Wicked Strong (15-1) to the super-exotic mix.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1503

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 460-286-231

Amount Wagered: $3,006 [to win only]

Warming Up to Global View


Today's traditional opening day feature at historic Keeneland is the Grade 3 Transylvania Stakes for 3YOs at a mile and a sixteenth on turf. It, as most of the races in the next two-plus weeks has drawn a sizable field of top flight runners.

The favorite, one of two uncoupled entrants from Chad Brown is Charming Inti (5-2) who will be turning back to his best distance after a good third going longer while under pressure going 9 furlongs at Gulfstream Park.

But we're looking for big time improvement from Global View (4-1) who chased the very classy Bobby's Kitten around the Tampa oval, spotting that rival a laughably easy lead, in a promising season's debut going a mile. The added sixteenth will be in his favor and Jose Lezcano takes a return call from Tom Proctor.

Taking Global View to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with 'Inti' and price shot Woodfield Springs (12-1), a sharp recent maiden graduate, and adding Canthelpbelieving (8-1), uncoupled Chad Pleuven (4-1) and recent impressive Todd graduate Picozza (9-2) to the super-exotics mix.
