April 19th 2018
I finished the 1st draft for my article for US Racing on the 2018 Kentucky Derby. I will provide a link to the article once published. (Update: SEE) Last year I had the top viewed article on that site during Derby month. I thank my loyal readers for helping put me me over the top last year. I make negative $99 from this blog every year but have made a little money and bonuses for article submissions on US Racing.
I don’t care about “The Money” as I am doing fine. But if things change, I think I would be most valuable as a pedigree analyst when it comes to bidding on yearlings and 2-year-olds where I see hundreds of thousands of dollars are throw away each year. Sometimes millions. Stupid money squandered away frivolously.
But back to the main point, I want to stress that this year’s Kentucky Derby will be one that you won’t want to miss. There’s a Bad, Bad Moon Rising. And the 136 year-old “Curse of Apollo” is in serious danger of coming to an end. I’d bet it ends. I didn’t get into why on that article submission but I will on this blog. Build your first Saturday in May around the 2018 Kentucky Derby as a fair warning.
