Happy New Year

It’s January, we officially have a new crop of three-year-olds, so that means it’s Wild Derby Speculation Season. Soldier’s Dancer won the Tropical Park Derby as expected although it doesn’t sound as though the race was particularly notable otherwise — unlike last year. We’ll have to wait a few more weeks before things really get going.

In other three-year-old news, Speedy Jones (half-brother of Smarty) proved he was no slave to nominative determinism by finishing last in a maiden special weight at Santa Anita on New Year’s Day. He did pick up $400 for the effort, though, so the $120K paid for him last May is not a total loss. He does seem to have good workouts, however, so perhaps he just needs to get the idea of how this racing business works. Maybe.

Jazil makes his first start as a four-year-old on Friday at Aqueduct; it will be interesting to see if he lives up to the promise he showed in the Belmont.

Finally, the Thoroughbred Times redesign launched. I am enjoying it for the most part so far, although Firefox had to be manually ‘told’ that the RSS feed existed for some reason. Ah well. Happy new year!
