Dollar Bill has his own website.
For those who want to get their information straight from the horse's mouth, Dollar Bill has started his own website. Well, maybe there was human intervention somewhere in there, but Mary and Gary West's 3-year-old classic contender writes in the first-person on the site, which is aimed at his fans, known as 'Billsters.'
The site contains notes from trainer Dallas Stewart, workout information, articles, photos, polls, and video replays of his races. His most recent effort, a third-place finish in the Louisiana Derby (gr. II), is chronicled by Bill as a case of "bad racing luck." Billsters will remember that their horse was knocked around pretty good coming down the lane.
Bill, though, is making no excuses. He is settling in at Churchill Downs, from where the plan is to van to Keeneland for the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) April 14. Bill seems a bit put off that so many challengers are lining up to test him that day.
As for Point Given and Monarchos, who will make their Kentucky Derby (gr. I) preps elsewhere, Bill, feeling confident, said that "sooner or later we're gonna look each other in the eye and get it on."
