Go, Nyquist Go!


Nyquist, Doug O'Neill and the Stanley Cup, resting in Nyquist's barn for luck

No further "intuitions" today, guys, sorry  - I've been too busy dress-shopping for my daughter's graduation!

(And unfortunately, the intuitions that I had yesterday, in the below post, don't seem to be as strong or clear today, which is not unusual)

So we're betting on our personal favorite, Nyquist, whom we met in person twice this year  -  this last time, also meeting the very gracious and personable, Doug O'Neill (see previous posts or the link below).

(Heck, I'm too biased this round to be too intuitive, having met them in person - what can I say :)

Though undefeated horses rarely win the derby, Nyquist has proven he can run on any turf, plus Nyquist has a unique way of staring other horses down and pinning his ears back that lets other horses know to get out of his way that tends to work for him.

Additionally, the store I finally found my dress in today was blasting Nyquist's song overhead (bottom of the post).

(Actually, I got TWO dresses there for the price of one, as they were having a huge sale!)




Well, I call it Nyquist's song, because I chose it to accompany the original post I wrote on the day we met Doug and Nyquist - and it brought me luck finding the perfect dress today -  so I hope that means it's a lucky day for Doug and Nyquist, too:)

So though we will place little bets on a couple of others as well, our biggest bet looks like this (which isn't much, most of our money's going to my daughter's college graduation;)

Trifecta Key Box

Key to Win:  - Nyquist

Place and Show (any order) Gunrunner and Mor Spirit

We will also do a regular trifecta box with these three horses in any order:)

Smaller bets will include Exaggerator, Creator, Moheyman  and Outwork, among others.


PS - I'm pretty sure Doug has lost at least 20 pounds since we met  him in April? ;)



PPS - 5:15 p.m. - This just in, starting to rain in both Lexington and Louisville now, and I'm not sure why, but  "Whitmore" keeps running through my head now, too, for some strange reason, so in addition to the little bets mentioned above, we'll throw him in for a smaller bet, just for run.

PPPS - 6:35 - TVG's betting site just crashed!  (So I couldn't placed the regular trifecta box or change any bets),  so I only have the one trifecta key box with Nyquist as the key and a few singles of the one's mentioned above (including Whitmore now) before it crashed - I hope that's right (but I'm nervous, aak, just not sure)!

Riders up, call to post! Here we go!

GO NYQUIST!!!!!!!







I know that I'm running out of time
(I want it all, mmm, mmm)
And I'm wishing they'd stop tryna turn me off
I want it all, mmm, mmm
And I'm walking on a wire, trying to go higher
Feels like I'm surrounded by clowns and liars
Even when I get it all the way
(I want it all, mmm, mmm)


We can get 'em running, running, running...
We can get 'em running running, running...


Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire, uh...

And people like to laugh at you cause they are all the same
(mmm, mmm)


See I would rather we just go our different way than play the game
And no matter the weather, we can do it better
You and me together forever and ever
We don't have to worry about a thing about a thing

We can get 'em running, running, running
We can get 'em running, running, running

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way


Just like fire, fire, fire
Running, running, running
We can get 'em running, running, running

So I can get it running
Just cause nobody's done it
Y'all don't think I can run it
But look, I've been here, I've done it
Impossible? Please
Watch, I do it with ease
You just gotta believe
Come on, come on with me
Oh, what you gonna do?
(What, what!?)
Oh, what you gonna do?
(What, what!?)
Oh, what you gonna do?
(What, what!?)
Oh, what you gonna do?


Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire, fire!
Running, running, running
Just like fire!
