Nothing doing for this contest handicapper this weekend or next weekend. I'm taking a mini-break from the contest circuit (I'm sure they will miss me desperately!) and racing overall ahead of the Kentucky Derby (May 2) and the opening of Monmouth Park (May 9).
There's plenty of NHC Tour action going on without me, though. Events this weekend at Santa Fe Station, Santa Anita, and Keeneland will qualify a total of six for Vegas, and online affairs at and XpressBet and NHCQualify (April 25) will stamp the tickets of another 15 lucky players, none of whom will be the proprietor of redrockorbust.blogspot.com.
I'll be back in the swing of things within a fortnight.
