Agreed!

Good mornin'!  Coffee is not quite kicking in yet, so I've been going through some old rally stuff for inspiration.  

Is this a great entrance, or what?  First rally since the inauguration.  Damn, wasn't it wonderful so see him roll up in Air Force One instead of his own plane?

Ok, on with my day.  I'll get caught up with an update on Justify this morning.  There's quite a bit.

Hello Race Fans!  On to the phase two of Operation Triple Crown!

Lot's of history with this trophy!  It was buried during the Civil War for protection!

Currently, Justify is loading on to Air Horse One for his flight to Maryland.  Tracker here...

http://www.suttonforwarding.com/FlightTracker.aspx

According to Flightradar24, they are running a little late.

Justify has been galloping 1 1/2 miles for the last four days.  The first two didn't look so good, slightly favoring that left hind leg.  It really was slight, but noticeable.  

They are still saying heel bruise, and I think that really may have been it (sort of.)  As I mentioned, they quickly fitted him with a 3/4 plate (shoe) that relieved the pressure on his heel.  Here's some good/quick info. on this type of therapeutic shoe.  http://e-hoof.com/glossary/en/three-quarter-horseshoe  Sometimes it has that "L" segment, sometimes not.  No one has been allowed to get a good picture of the shoe fitted on Justify, only pics with his foot on the ground.

However, yesterday (I think) they put a full shoe back on and added a pad and Equilox. Equilox is a silicone gel that is squirted in between the bottom (sole) of the hoof and the pad and gives a human running shoe kind of effect.  Very cushy and helps relieve pressure.

This tells me a couple of things.  The three-quarter shoe was causing more problems or not providing enough relief, and there is probably a more extensive bruise on the sole of the hoof, or possibly the frog.  Equilox can only protect those two areas of the hoof.  It provides more cushion for the entire foot, but it doesn't directly protect the heel.

I can guarantee they've been soaking and poulticing that foot each day too.  There's never an easy fix for this, except time - which they don't have.  Shoeing, soaking, poulticing and praying.  That's about it.

So, for right now, Justify is still a go for the Preakness.  This still could change in a heartbeat though.  Pimlico has a very different racing surface from Churchill which might affect the foot too.

I'll post pics and short videos of his gallops soon.  @OldWhiteGuy  I'd love to hear Youngwhitegal's opinion on the above and videos coming in a bit.

Here's the three-quarter shoe.  I actually did find a pic of it while walking too, so it didn't have the "L".  Not that it matters really.  Just details.

I have no idea what that "4/9" is ... A typo? ... If not, please explain!!

He's so heavily favored to win that a $2.00 bet will only win you 80¢   Chuckle

To calculate the odds on a two dollar bet:

Multiply 1st number by two, divide by 2nd number, add two.

That's how I read it, but with those odds, who would bet? Scratchinghead
