AMAZING news for us here. If you loved the annual homage I write about my father every year for SaratogaBets , you'll be happy to know that I was asked to do a reading for "Our American Stories" (1.7 million weekly listeners), and guess what -- here it is ! http://www.ouramericannetwork.org/story?title=My-Parents-Are-Gone-But-Their-Traditions-Aren-t&fbclid=IwAR0nxu9wzv3sHr3853i6prcuIYN43GK6J-1YaDzmy7ft7oIE2CD5AbDiCjU
I'd like to leave this bit of info here for y'all. When we're using the DRF Formulator platform while writing our columns, if we say "Sprints", for the most part we mean any one turn race, and when we say "Routes", we mean any TWO turn race. ( For example, we consider a 1 1/8th mile race at Belmont an elongated sprint, and a 6 1/2 furlong race at a Charles Town a route. ) We feel this way, because in our eyes, it's the number of turns that necessitate more energy than being relaxed on a straightaway. Sometimes the sample size for our study can be too large to manually break down, so there may be a few from one category in another, but usually the end result is pretty much the same!

Graded Stakes - 4/14 - Oaklawn Park - Apple Blossom
Race 8 Apple Blossom
#6 MIDNIGHT BISOU goes over the two million dollar mark with a 3rd place finish today, and that's likely a fait accompli, as this miss has never been out of the money to date. Asmussen charge draws ideally in this compact field, and is a picture perfect 6 of 6 at the dist. Bisou for Bijou. #3 ESCAPE CLAUSE is 20 for 30 and how the hell can you argue with that? Our favorite "West Coast" pilot has won two of those, and the scary thing is that this one is still improving. #1 ELATE has been ITM in both second off the break attempts as well as bot starts when breaking from the wood; logical.
