Preakness Day

Yikes!  Sighted a rose-breasted grosbeak at the feeder.  Haven’t seen one in a long time.  I am concerned: no sightings of hummingbirds yet.  They’re usually around by mid-May.

Baby falcons are starting to motor around the nest box.  Dad is spending much less time sitting on them and their necks are much stronger.

Have a thing about Latigo Shore (Zito) in the sixth race at Pimlico.  And Nicanor is running in the 11th race (Dixie Stakes) on the grass.  Can’t wait.

Have money on SuperSaver, Dublin, Jackson Bend, Lookin’ at Lucky and Paddy O’Prado.  Trifecta’d some, win bets on others.  Threw out most of the newcomers because of how well I think they’re coming into the race, the new distance, and the fact that none of them has carried 126 pounds.  Most have not carried anything close to that.
