Now that the CashCall Futurity is history, Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert claims his fifth win in the Futurity and moves ahead of D. Wayne Lukas as the trainer with the most Futurity wins.
Lookin At Lucky is pretty much a lock to win the Eclipse Award for 2-year-old champion and, if he isn’t there already, moves to the top of most people’s 2010 Kentucky Derby list.
The Holidays have put me behind but I hope to post my Derby list sometime before the start of the New Year.
In the meantime, if you are snowed in and suffering from a bad case of cabin fever or you’ve just been Derby dreamin, you may want to check out the Iron Maidens Thoroughbreds website Sunday for a live 2010 Kentucky Derby Chat at 4 p.m Eastern Standard Time. It’s easy to attend the chat. Just visit the website and click on Chat located on the tool bar located beneath the Iron Maidens Thoroughbreds banner.
The chat is hosted by my friend Laura who is the creator of Iron Maidens Thoroughbreds and also a frequent poster on the Daily Racing Form FormBlog hosted by Dan Illman. Laura regularly has chats at her website and most of the chatters are the railbirds that make posts on Illman’s FormBlog.
Noted author and pedigree analyst Rommy Faversham has visited Laura’s chat room and Mr. Illman (also a noted author and he’s pretty good on pedigrees too) occasionally stops by for a visit.
I don’t know if Faversham or Illman will be at Sunday’s chat but one thing is for sure: talking Derby is good medicine to cure your cabin fever blues and jumpstart you on the 2010 Kentucky Derby trail.
I’ll see you at the chat.
