your odds.  23 horses are available for each race plus the field
which covers any other horse not listed.


Review:  Graveyard of Champions
Saratoga's Fallen Favorites by Bill Heller. Analysis of Saratoga's
notorious jinx for heavy favorites brought to life in an entertaining
series of historical narratives.  A great book for any racing fan's

Saratoga Preview
Saratoga is the summer place to be for horse racing fans.  Here is a
overview of the 2002 Spa meet.

Del Mar Preview
The west coast equivalent of Saratoga, Del Mar is where the "surf
meets the turf" every summer. Check out what is in store this year.

Contest: Win "Ride of Their Lives"
Register to win a copy of the book "Ride of Their Lives" by Lenny
Shulman courtesy of Eclipse Press.  Entries will close on July 13th.


Spain retired
TEXSQUARED writes, "...and about time too. I thought DWL was nuts to
have even considered running her through Breeders' Cup this year. She's
got the money record, there's nothing left for her to prove."
SHELLY440 adds, "I have been so worried about her running while in foal.
I am so relieved to see that at last now she can rest. I am going to
Three Chimneys in October maybe I will be able to see her there."

American Oaks (Hollywood) Predictions
YATATA writes, "I doubt Megahertz will be in the money. She hasn't run
against any class. Cellars Shiraz was coming along nicely until her
last two. Maliziosa beat her at Churchill and then her connections ran
her in the slop at Calder. I'm not leaving her out. I like Adoration
over Megahertz at 1 1/8 or less, but I doubt if either will be around
at the end. Distant Valley will be tough to beat in this field along
with Maliziosa and hopefully Cellars. The others, who knows? If I had
to pick one to throw in, I'd take the Irish, Saranac Lake. If the turf
ends up really soft (fat chance), I'd use Portella the German inport.
This might be one of those races to box the 1 thru 4 or the 11 thru 14.
If you're going to key a horse, take a long look at Distant Valley."
