2002 Kentucky Oaks Entries
Ten fillies are entered in the 128th Kentucky Oaks with Take Charge Lady
as the favorite. Other top contenders are You, Habibti, and Imperial
Gesture. Get the full entries, odds, and past performances here.

Handicapping the Derby
The Derby is probably the most over analyzed race in the worlds so lots
of trends have been found that would normally go undetected.  Here is a
checklist of angles and trends for you to use to try and pick your

Kentucky Derby Weather
Up to 15 day forecasts for Louisville plus weather radar.  Latest
forecast when I sent this out said morning showers on Derby day on some
forecasts and clear on others.

Derby Season New Books
Lots of new books have been released this spring for Triple Crown season. Check out the new books on topics like Charismatic, Monarchos, Dubai, D. Wayne Lukas, or just the Derby and racing in general.

John C. Mabee 1921 - 2002
John C. Mabee died Wednesday, April 24, from the affects of a stroke he
suffered April 14th.  Best known as the owner/breeder of Best Pal, he
was a California icon and owner of Golden Eagle Farm with his wife


Private Emblem will win the Derby!
DEPALMA13 writes, "If nothing happens between now and the starting gate on
Saturday, this horse will cross the finish line ahead of all the others.
He does nothing but beat anyone he faces. He won his last race easily, on
a track that was playing 2 seconds slower than Aqueduct all day. That puts
his time right at or a little better than Buddha's win. He also ran the
last 3/8th's in 38 flat, the strongest finish in any of the 3 preps. Now I
have to find some horse to go with him."

Going to the Preakness - new security hassles
TEXSQUARED writes, "I got this from the Preakness website. All bags,
purses and containers will be inspected at all public entrances. All
vehicles entering the main gate will be inspected. Banned items include:
coolers, backpacks and thermoses (permitted in infield only), glass
containers of any type, handcarts or wheeled carts, liquor or drugs of any
kind, kegs of beer of any kind, weapons of any kind. Pimlico will offer
customers the option to make advance reservations for a boxed lunch."
