The List Explained

1) I Want Revenge - monster performance in Wood, probable co-favorite
2) Quality Road - winning ways continued, quarter-crack concerns co-choice of the moment
3) Pioneerof the Nile - best chance for Left Coast shippers
4) West Side Bernie - my long shot play at this point, ran well just behind Wood winner
5) Friesan Fire - deserves respect for sweeping Fair Ground preps, right?
6) Regal Ransom - ran handsomely in the desert
7) Terrain - at this point, another long shot choice with enough graded stakes money banked 
8) Old Fashioned - one more chance to show he belongs 
9) Dunkirk - if he gets in the gate, may be second or third choice
10) Theregoesjojo - hard knocker hoping to breakthrough in Blue Grass
11) Big Drama - pipe dream I know, but looked awful talented in last DQed "loss" 
12) Patena - final chance in Blue Grass to make Derby gate
13) Rachel Alexandra - dominating her gender, belongs

  1. We just switched people in charge of allowing in new members, so I thought it would be a good idea to refresh memories w/ those that have thought about it in the past.

    To be a TBA member, you will need to do the following:

    * Carry the links of other members on your blog. We make this easy with a widget that will be sent to you when you are admitted.
    * Carry the TBA standings. Again, the code for this will be provided.
    * Donate $50 in the name of our TBA Horse of the Year to Old Friends. Checks made out to Old Friends are collected in December.
    * Have posted regularly for 2 months.

    Our entire group votes on the admission of new blogs, so if you are still interested, let us know about a week or 2 prior to our next vote which will be the last week of May. So email me around May 15th if you'd like in.

    The TBA is the best way to be part of a community of like minded individuals, get your blogs heard, and hopefully we'll all make a change in the sport for the better.
