Derby Picks 2019

May 5 Update: Jake coulda won. But. Maximum Security DQ’d. So. Nobody did. Country House not on any list. Closest. Code of Honor placed. mAd Ben had it to win. Tacitus showed. Dr. H had it to place. Another sloppy day and even messier race.

Hey. History was made. Margaritas all around. It’s Cinco de Mayo and Cersei tonight. See ya next year!

Derby Fire

2018 Kentucky Derby. For no particular reason going with fire this year:

Win – Bolt d’Oro
Place – Firenze Fire
Show – Flameaway

What do we hear from the Hamptons & Westchester contingents? Already wore my fascinator to the Central Park Conservancy luncheon. So hatless today.

Weekend Picks

Kentucky Derby. McCraken – Win. Always Dreaming- Place. Gunnevera – Show. En France. Macron and his beautiful 64-year old wife best Marine’s poison Le Pen. Finish. The Last Painting of Sara De Vos by Dominic Smith. Definitely not. Adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale with Elizabeth Moss. Yes to Veal Piccata with Cavatelli.

MayDay MayDay

Warning. Warning. First of May. All that outdoor sex stuff starts today. I’ll just take a day with more than 2 hours of sunshine. And. Watch out for all those private jets zig-zagging around. From Red Sox-Yankees series to Kentucky Derby to Vegas for Mayweather v. Pacquiao. Only $20k for tix to the latter.

Place your bets for the Derby before the bell. Win. Place. Show. American Pharaoh. Mr. Z. Ocho Ocho Ocho. Pacquiao. Bon weekend.
