    Yeah, I kinda thought all bets were off given the weather at Pimilco. But Justify did exactly what most thought he would, even with the terrible track conditions. I can't see another horse beating him at Belmont. Feels like American Pharaoh all over again.

    Though I guess this could be California Chrome, all over again. (he won first 2, just missed Belmont).

    Preakness 2018 is all about the mud

    It's one thing to have a muddy race track. But the entire grounds? Wow. I heard they are considering leaving Pimlico in 2020. Maybe this is one reason why.

    That'd make sense. Seems like the track and grounds is deteriorating. We spoke in another thread about maybe covering the tracks.... Why can't they cover at least the track to keep this exact thing from happening?

    No idea, man. On top of that, the weather for the race was super foggy. Looked pretty miserable for everyone in the audience. Wonder how many of them could actually even see the race itself? Here's the replay. Justify did win, even through all that.

    The way that 25 year old did that was pretty clever. Albeit gross and weird. He pretended to be a hurricane Harvey victim, who's paperwork was lost in the hurricane. No parents; essentially homeless. So he used a loophole in the system to gain admission. Wow.

    The gross part is at the end of the video report from that link it said that he was allegedly also 'romantically' involved with a 14 year old student.

    I have no idea what would possess a 25 year old to do that. I would really like to hear some kind of candid interview where he explains his motivations and thought process.

    Very weird. I'll be on the lookout for more stories like this and share them here if I find any.

    Odds makers clearly have Justify as the favorite in this race. Justify won the Kentucky Derby and has a really good chance of taking the Triple Crown this year.

    Though thought it was interesting the horse 'Good Magic' is a very close second. All other horses as of now are not even close odds wise. (Live odds)

    Justify - 4/9
    Good Magic - 5/2
    Lone Sailor - 9/1
    Bravazo - 12/1
    Quip - 12/1
    Diamond King - 15/1
    Tenfold - 20/1
    Sporting Chance - 30/1

    Figure this will change a bit once the post position draws are announced. Though I don't see Justify or Good Magic slipping as the 2 favorites.

    Any reason to bet on any other horse outside the top two? Saw some fairly compelling arguments for Good Magic on YouTube. But I still think Justify takes this one. It's the fastest track, and that's where Justify excels.

    Had no idea this was in the works. Very interesting. I'm sure the guys over at FanDuel and DraftKings for fantasy sports 'games' are thrilled.

    Here's a good ESPN conversation on how this will effect the NBA:

    Also thought it was interesting to see that Mark Cuban quote about this passing's impact:

    I think everyone that owns a top 4 professional sports team saw the value of their team double.

    Webb never lost his hold, but it was a little disappointing to see him double bogey 18, after such a dominant showing. Even still, congrats to him for his first win in years.

    As for Tiger, that was pretty encouraging. He looked like the Tiger of old. Sure he didn't fully realize the rally. But his final 2 days were really good. He looked like a completely different golfer from the first 2 days. He looked like he can finally compete on the main stage again. Was fun to watch.

    Webb is now -19 under. Closest guy to him is -12 under. Simpson's the only guy in the whole tournament to shoot under 70 all of the first 3 rounds. Gotta think he has it in the bag..

    Should clarify, I am talking about that match-up for the conference finals. Not the NBA finals. So this match-up is actually happening right now. Winner goes to the finals.

    Given that, any predictions?

    I don't want to see another Warriors v Cavs playoffs. I just don't. Though I have no hopes in the Cavs not making it (I think they handle the Celtics easily enough) a matchup that could actually make this year's finals different is the Rockets taking on the Warriors in the conference finals.

    This ESPN article and vid has me pretty excited for this series. James Harden and CP3 have been on the losing end of some pretty epic collapses over the last few years, by missing out on championship potential runs time and time again.

    Now that they are finally on the same team and making things happen, this could actually be their year of vindication. If they don't pull it off, that'll be okay I think. But to get the opportunity to watch the drama of those 2 play against the Durant and Curry superteam is probably the most intriguing matchup in the whole NBA right now.

    When they played in the regular season, Houston got the better of them 2-1. Small sample size though, and the playoffs are a different animal. Looking forward to this one.

    Any predictions?
