Lovely day here today. Cooling off starting tomorrow, but then again that's Spring for you.

Finally able to play golf yesterday - been cold and rainy all week.  Shot pretty well.  My son invited us over for a cookout last night ... nice not having to cook for once ...

I'll bet Mary felt the same way about your cooking! 😛

She loves my cooking - made grilled eggplant parmesean one night, southwest stuffed poblano peppers another.  I also make a  great Thai peanut sauce stir fry.   Jewel had some really big jalapeno peppers on sale this week, and I have been making stuffed poppers with cream cheese that are fabulous.

As the last day of my Mexican birthday week, last night THB and I went to Cocina TARASCAS. Pretty good food. They make a good chorizo. Has a kick to it. They also have $40 margaritas. Yes, 40 bucks! It's like a fish bowl. I know two girls that finished the whole thing. Each. 😮 And you can get them to go.

All the kids are coming over for Mother's Day.  I have spent all day cleaning and cooking.  Jalapeno poppers for an appetizer, and pulled pork and eggplant parmesan for the meal.  Got up at 7 to put the pork in the slow cooker, then went back to bed.  I'm tired already .... no golf this morning because of rain and cold.

I don't know how that is gonna work. We heard that on the news and THB and I looked at each other and didn't understand the explanation, whether it is already final or not. If it's already paid out wott can they do? This kind of thing happened a couple years ago at one of the three major races but they got to the bottom of it the same day. I was in a bar and about 15 of us each picked a horse. This girl won, took the money but found out wott happened. She didn't win. Some people had already left and we didn't know wott to do so she just bought the rest of us beer. Probably spent more than the $150 we kicked in. 😉

Sounds really good. I miss pulled pork. and corn on the cob now that I think of it.

Interesting about the rain. We didn't get a drop north. While cool, it actually turned out to be a pretty nice day. Although the people sitting in the shade at Wrigley were pretty bundled up.

I think once paid out they can't come back on anyone. The bigger question is, those that bet the second place horse which may end up being the winner. Different sports books have different ways of approaching that. How many people would have hung onto what they thought was a losing ticket?

I guess here is the answer:

 

If Medina Spirit is stripped of the 2021 Kentucky Derby victory, second-place Mandaloun would be deemed the winner … but bettors on Mandaloun would still be out of luck.

Medina Spirit’s win is now under investigation after blood tests determined an elevated presence of betamethasone, a regulated anti-inflammatory used to manage pain. Churchill Downs has suspended trainer Bob Baffert pending the final results of the investigation, which will include a second round of testing.

Baffert, a Hall of Fame trainer and (currently) winner of a record seven Kentucky Derbys, maintains innocence, saying Medina Spirit had never even been treated with betamethasone. 

If the second test comes back positive, Medina Spirit would lose the victory and Mandaloun will be named the winner of the 2021 Kentucky Derby. All prize money would then be taken from Medina Spirit’s team and awarded to Mandaloun’s.

However, as for the other money involved — the small-dollar bets laid down on Medina Spirit and others — that’s done and gone. There will be no refunds, and no awards to anyone still holding a Mandaloun ticket.

“All bets will stand as settled,” said John Ewing, data analyst for BetMGM. “The race result has already been determined official and paid. Disqualifications from positive drug tests will not change the results.”

Had to go to a foot specialist this morning. They gave me prosthetic things for my shoes. Then they told me I had to walk. For two hours. 😮 There were old people with walkers passing me.

Snag - 

Not sure if you know it but King Crimson w/ The Zappa Band are coming to Ravinia, August 29th. I thought you like that kind of music.

The same week John Hiatt w/ Jerry Douglas are also playing there the 24th. 

I was pleasantly surprised by the ticket prices. I've never seen any of them and I really want to see Hiatt. 

And I've never been to Ravinia either. I understand the train lets you off right in front of the place.

Now Baffert admits a "dermatology" ointment contained the steroids. Golly gee willikers I'm sure it had to be by "accident." They definitely need to strip the Derby title from Medina Steroids*. Hit Baffert where it hurts and take that record number of Derby wins away.

Let it stand? Neigh!

Also read that prior to the Triple Crown races all won by the Baffert trained Justify, that Justify failed a drug test that should have made it ineligible to run those races. But Santa Anita racetrack officials kept that information under wraps. Baffert has had dozens of doping violations through the years. A cheater through and through.

Old joke about "when I play golf I always finish in the 70's. If it's hotter than that I just stay home." Cool
