People always say it, "Hangtown is it's own animal" or "Hangtown means nothing".

We can check the first National of the year off the list and we saw much of what had been anticipiated, as well as a few surprises. There's one thing we know for sure, Hangtown rarely gives a true glimpse as to what will pan out over the course of the rest of the season on a typical year. This year had the additional twist of anticiapted rain with track prep altered to accomodate the pending wet climate. Although there was some precipitation, it was no where near what had been anticipiated and thus the track was not nearly the rough animal Hangtown usually becomes.
As such, I'm going to lean away from much of the cerebral introspection which Swizcorner is usually comprised of and instead, use some great Cudby eyecandy presenting the guys I found to have interesting days at round one. Next week, more cerebral reading yall!!
