BB- The Nest at the County – 5/7/22 – Derby Themed Rotation- Backflop and Meter Maid CoQ

I can see why the weather people only give a 10 minute weather guarantee in our area. It was not supposed to rain this morning before the Nest. The conditions were 51 degrees with a light rain and wet/sloppy conditions at the Nest track. Backflop and YHC were coQs. We each came with a planContinue reading “BB- The Nest at the County – 5/7/22 – Derby Themed Rotation- Backflop and Meter Maid CoQ”

BB- The Agony at the County – 12/30/21 – Meter Maid Q

BB- The Nest 8/29/20 Meter Q

Earlier in the week, I had been marketing the Nest workout as a modified sandbag Murph. Pelican kept calling it a “Sandy Murphy Rucky” thing. I wasn’t sure how well it would go over with the PAX.
