I made it back from Vegas with a few buck in my pocket. Gulfstream and Aqueduct were a little rough with me on Sunday, but Mountaineer's Monday night card got me back to even on the horse racing side of the ledger. We won't discuss the video poker, craps and other casino games adventures. However, I made it all back at the buffet.
Big, big weekend of racing coming up in a couple of days. Saturday morning is the 2012 Dubai World Cup from Meydan, while later in the afternoon is the Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream, just to name a couple of fantastic racing events. If that's not enough to peak your interest, the Fair Grounds Oaks, Gulfstream Oaks and Santa Anita Oaks will all run on Saturday. The Fair Grounds closes out their meet with the Louisiana Derby on Sunday.
Think that will be enough stakes action for the weekend? Sure looks like it.
I'll have the entries and post positions for the big races a bit later on today.
