You're My Boy Blue Upsets Rapid Transit Field

Overtaking the speed, All Joking Aside, at the top of the stretch all time winningest jockey Russell Baze stirred You're My Boy Blue to an upset victory in the $75,000 Rapid Transit. Having an 0-fer 2009 meant absolutely nothing in the stretch as Blue rallied nicely on the outside and throws into question the possibility of a speed favoring track. Favored Grand Traverse (my choice) stalked the speed well, but could not hold off the charge of Blue late and had to settle for second. So far I have 2 seconds and a one win in the three CC races. Very chalky and while I'm doing OK in the press box pool, it's going to be tough to win with seconds.

1. You're My Boy Blue
2. Grand Traverse
3. Idaho Joe
