Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Wish I’d Had Those Trifectas!

Xchanger’s victory in the Federico Tesio was a bit of a surprise, it was nothing compared to Slew’s Tizzy huge upset in the Coolmore Lexington. What that means in terms of graded earnings for the Derby is that Chelokee is stuck at number 22 on the list; however, Slew’s Tizzy’s trainer, Greg Fox (a former vet) said:

“Our philosophy is that we don’t run horses back in two weeks,” said Fox when asked if Slew’s Tizzy will run in the Derby on May 5.

After a great performance it can be hard to keep owners from getting Derby fever; we’ll see how it all turns out. Speaking of Chelokee, there’s a good article on Chelokee and Michael Matz in the Inquirer today — here’s hoping he makes it into the field. In other local horse news, there’s a story about Hard Spun’s masseuse — it takes a village!

Finally, while we are all looking forward to Barbaro’s birthday celebration, it’s nice to see there are some other fun benefits coming up — Avalon in Louisville will be hosting a Secretariat-themed fundraiser May 1 . The official Secretariat.com site features a story on the rescue of Secretariat’s half-brother from a Texas feedlot and you can register for the benefit here.
