Who's Hot, Who's Not

Crazy weekend at the Spa. Recovering from 3 straight days of betting, watching, drinking and eating downtown. Too tired too blog but here is my view on who's hot and who's not for the first week at the Spa

Cribnote (2 yr. old out of Violette barn)
Munnings (2 yr old of sire Speighstown)
Terry Finley of West Point Thoroughbreds-our group bumped into him after Macho Again took the Jim Dandy-he was real pumped up, and why not-despite the slow time it is still a Graded Stakes win at the Spa.

The weather-except for Friday, the weather hammered the track and hurt attendance
Attendance/On Track Handle-the windows seemed real light-especially on Jim Dandy Day when I barely had to wait at the windows-the clubhouse and grandstand was very quiet all day. Already more turf races moved off than all of last year. Forget about attendance equaling last year after this week of weather
Da'Tara-no way Da'Tara could sprint with Mint Lane and be there at the end
