okay, people, ellis park will be open on friday for live simulcasting of the oaks, as well as wagering for the Big Horserace.  both the queen and i have been a little distracted, what with the wedding and all, but it’s time to start studying the field….  despite my poor past picks for the derby, i’m hopeful. 

i’m encouraged that ellis can open, but haven’t checked out churchill downs…hey, louisville friends, are we ready for the Run?  one of these years, i’m going to see it live and in person with a few pre-parties thrown in….
