The Weekend Desk Report

We always have a lot of success. And we think you know what we mean by that. Right? Huh? Huh?

Market Update
Look, it's obviously disappointing that CPS will be slightly more shit broke than expected next year. But listen, if Mayor Emanuel uses the same methodology to close a few dozen schools in each of the next 20-odd years, just think of the money we'll save then!

Derby Odds
So, Will Take Charge is a long shot? Yeah, that seems about right.

Derby Odds, part 2
Are you the least bit surprised no one wants to back Falling Sky? Yeah, we weren't really surprised either.

Derby Odds, part 3
We'll tell you one more thing; Frac Daddy is going to get absolutely buried by the usual Lines of Battle.

Invest in the Future
Just remember: whether you win or lose, you should never feel guilty for taking a massive gamble. After all, it's for the kids, right?
