Cali chrome is sitting in a great position and believe he won santa Anita derby from 5th post position. More bets to come as weekend nears.

Locked and loaded:

1 vicars trouble***
16 intense holiday****
13 chitu
20 wicked strong
4 danza***

Will be combining these in multiple exotics and some win place show bets. Hope Cali chrome doesn't hit the board like I think they won't.

Off to beer and races all day. Great fun crowd. My pool group I am in up $975 yesterday. We will drink that up before post time:)

Here are my buddy's service plays for derby.

They usually are spot on. Just adding that today has been a mid level day. At the track. Expecting a lot of excitement for the derby:)
