What else did we learn this weekend?

Well … we learned that Fox Hill Farm’s Eight Belles is going to be entered in both the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby. I can almost guarantee that barring an injury, she’ll be in the Derby starting gate.

We also learned that Adriano will be clogging up the Derby, just as predicted by yours truly regardless of what the connections were saying after the Lane’s End. He didn’t run a lick in either of his dirt starts, but Derby here they come. I selected him in the Lane’s End, but he probably should stick to turf and/or synthetic and the people at Churchill should start considering a revamp of the criteria that it takes to be eligible for the Derby.

    What do you make of Eight Belles chances? You’ve always got great insights and I’d love to get your opinion.

    Can’t we admit the obvious IRONY and the parallels between Obama (Big Brown) and Hillary (Eight Belles)?

    The term “Eight bells” can also be a way of saying that a sailor’s watch is over, for instance, in his or her obituary. It’s a nautical euphemism for “finished”.

    1) Hillary will stop at NOTHING to get the nomination, even if it hurts herself and her party….

    (A fine filly like Eight Belles will stop at nothing even if she breaks her own legs and dies.)

    2) Hillary is madly trying to run with the BOYS in a race she will do ANYTHING it takes to win — for the power and the glory and to prove she can do it no matter what the injury to herself or others.

    (Eight Belles — fighting an artificial turf and a herd of massive males, tried to win over the huge and powerful Big Brown)

    3) Hillary wanted everyone to bet for Eight Belles to win (not to place) and everyone who trusted her lost.

    4) The filly was fatally crippled, so they euthanized her. Will this happen to Hillary’s campaign or her potential presidency? She has the will, but does Hillary have the strength to avoid going down at the finish line as well?

    I personally put my money on Big Brown and guess what… I won.

    I’m betting on Obama. I don’t trust Hillary or her judgment.

    (All respect to women running for office — Feinstein, Thatcher, etc…. this is not about women… it’s about Hillary’s bedlamite character and lack of strength needed to finish the race and run the free world.)

    Quoting Brian, a blogger on ABC:

    “The parallels are a little weird and I hate even bringing them up. Big Brown had only had only run three races and people were questioning his experience. Eight Belles was the only filly in the race and comes in second.”
