Wassup Around the TBA

Lots happening over at the Thoroughbred Bloggers Alliance, of which yours truly is a proud-standing member thereof.

First off, after the PP censorship came down late last week, we have your answer via DRF Formulator. Now, mind you, I am looking forward to trying this out myself (even though I am a twinspires.com member who can get the BRIS pp's for free). We have struck a fabulous deal for our TBA readers. You can pick up 10 cards for $10 by using the special TBA code found on the homepage. Check it out before the big prep weekend! DRF Formulator is now a welcomed sponsor of the TBA's 3yo Filly Divison (see TBA Standings on the left sidebar).

Secondly, the TBA's R2R Group (see R2R tab on the homepage and current standings at the bottom of the page) is off an running a month into the prep races. Handride has a nice recap of how things are shaking out and us bloggers need to pick up the pieces this weekend.

The group donated a handsome sum last year to Old Friends Retirement in the name of our Horse of the Year, Zenyatta. In addition to TwinSpires and DRF, we welcome OCD Pellets as our new sponsor of the 3yo Colt Division. We've had a spot in the BloodHorse Blog Stable since October where you can find many of the group's best blog posts. Check 'em out!

The Twitter and Twackle waves are full of TBA bloggers and we have our own feed (pick it up here), be sure to grab it to grab the latest links to our posts.

The Paulick Derby Index (poll includes 6 TBA bloggers) is out and as expected, a big jump up by I Want Revenge into the cleanup spot. I'm really looking forward to Chocolate Candy squaring off against Pioneerof the Nile this weekend in the San Felipe, should be a dandy.

Things have been very busy around the Space Ranch lately so after I initially laughed at LATG's wanting one of "those road to the triple crown guest blogger dudes..." comment, I went ahead and signed up my pal, JB, an excellent handicapper in his own right. JB was last seen on Belmont Day making a guest appearance in the background of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's jaunt around the park. I won't give him away, but he's seen watching the monitors during one of the races rooting home is favorite sprinter J be K. He'll be guest blogging from time to time with his thoughts on the road to Louisville...looking forward to it as he is a real student of the game.
