Deep Consideration

(SAT) December 3rd, 2022

8:12 p.m. Since I didn't have time throughout the week (and I have to work tomorrow, too darn!), haven't been able to give my call a deep consideration. Yet the clock is ticking away... So I'm just going to post my current decision. Please note that it could change later on.

Will key T O Keynes of course, this can't be helped. On the quinella wheel would be Sunrise Hope, Jun Light Bolt, Notturno, and Crown Pride. To keep up my motivation, am also planning to buy a bit of trifectas keying T O Keynes on the first, Jun Light Bolt on the second, on a wheel of Sunrise Hope, Notturno, Crown Pride, and Tagano Beauty.
