On Friday evening (March 21) I’ll post my analysis of the Spiral Stakes and the Sunland Park Derby. For now, I’ll just say Bill Mott’s Tourist (withdrawn from the Spiral) earned a small futures wager from me. You can still find him at 400-1 or so at some race books. Stay tuned for more. . .

UPDATE: Tourist didn’t make it into the field for the Spiral. He shows a 5-furlong work at Payson Park on March 17 as his most recent activity.
