HEAT ONE - Looks at the mercy of trap one Droopys Reason, though the odds won't be great. With a middle-moving dog in trap two and slow-starters further wide, Droopys Reason looks sure to lead and open up a gap.

This strong-running type can weave... [ Read More ]

Small Investment Big Fun I must state at the beginning, this is not a get rich quick type of investment and for anyone looking for that sort of thing won't find that here.
