Just a personal note. As some know and others don’t, I have been battling an illness for months and started treatments during Del Mar. I completed those treatments 10 days ago, but I have been left very tired while working my regular job through the process. I just don’t have the energy to handicap on a daily basis. I hope to be ready for the Breeders’ Cup, which is in less than 2 weeks, and then be ready to go full bore for the fall Del Mar meet. Thanks for your understanding. See you soon.
NOTE: I will be taking Los Alamitos off and get back at it with start of Santa Anita, although I might stick to weekends, due to some medical issues.
Thanks for reading.
