Champion's Cup 2016

5:19 p.m. I'm sorry folks, I still haven't been able to decide my key horse. I won't use bussiness for an excuse today. I just haven't been able to make up my mind.

As I have mentioned yesterday, I have a terrible feeling that Awardee might not win this time. So I've been trying to pick one horse to key besides Awardee, but in vain. It might be a better idea to buy box instead of trifecta or trio wheels. The horses to buy are: Awardee (just in case), Roi Jardin, Sound True, Nonkono Yume (just in case), Kopano Rickey.
