Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

I can't really imagine what it's like to set up a Twitter thinking that you'll just share some picks about whatever racing thing you're thinking if, only for it to be thrown back in your face like is happening here. It is abundantly strange. TA, I do have some new found respect for you. I could nev...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

The similarities between you and Todd Shrupp really are endless, must be in the job DNA. You both think we're obsessed with you. You both tweet out your picks daily for FREE. You both have some contrarian opinions. You both have some informed opinions along with some not-so. You both pick a few win...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

RE: Fahan Most 30-1 shots can be referred to as silly, that's okay. This one will have red pen marks in PPs all across America that read CheapSpeed, that's okay too. She's certainly not my 5star blue ribbon guaranteed release of the year, but she will get a few bucks from me, and she is a filly tha...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Fahan Mura is a silly entrant, though I guess her speed helps some of the others. She's basically a rabbit for everyone. I wonder what she paid to run. Probably low five figures. Her only chance is to be ignored and be allowed to walk the dog. She’s a nice story but I’m not seeing it. Of much more ...

The headline is puzzling. Jimmy doesn't look too excited to me, but this boy has been training pretty well although mostly on dirt. Yeah, likely Stronach's call.
I hadn't even noticed that. Pretty funny. The layoff line is 45 days. How many Stakes horses frequently run back that quickly?

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

I don't think that's fair. The Coolmore owners are making those calls, as they are essentially freerolls to create stallion value in America for dir horses. It sure worked well for Giants Causeway ( and even gave Johanessburg a shot ). Tough to blame O'Brien for that, Don't get me wrong, I bet agai...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

There are a whole bunch of names (same person as well as rhetoric) who lie in the weeds over at the Blood Horse that would take issue with that. Using Baffert as a piñata is a sport over there. Of course there is also someone else over there using multiple names who staunchly defends his every move...

Hey Little Andy, Fuck you and all your troll comments. Nuff said. I think the "you can dish it out but you can't take it" line fits here. Don't insult yourself and try to justify what Stark had the balls to call you out on. We all know what a troll is and Stark isn't one of them. If you can't play ...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

If you think it's good general policy to use guilt by association to tag the traditions of your sport with the ugly smear of racism, knock yourself out. See how it works out for you. You make your living in horse racing -- I don't. Now who's taking cheap shots? Racism, sadly. is prevalent everywher...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Did the people in 1950's America feel the Triple Crown was garbage when they had seven Triple Crown winners in the previous twenty years? They did not because they had something we do not - respect. Ah yes, those halcyon days of respect and civility in America- the Jim Crow Era. That is absolutely ...

…..the insulting treatment by Justify's connections (and, by extension, large portions of the racing media), 2018 didn't always feel like a particularly welcoming year to racing fans.

Just curious, what "insulting treatment" are you referring to, by either the connections or the media?

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

What does everyone think the shelf life of this race is? For some reason I don't see it being around in another 5 years. The finances are tricky, as nobody talks, and the entry fees seem to evolve, so it's hard to know. The dirt race will likely last but probably not the turf, at least at a high le...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Frank Stronach is a big boy who can admit failure, but he's also perhaps the biggest name in the sport the past 20 years to try new ideas. So be it the Sunshine Millions or the 20cent rainbow picksix or who knows what Belinda might come up with in the future, I've learned to applaud their innovatio...

With only 4 possibles so far it looks like we won't see much of a field for that spectacular turf extravaganza.
I think Yoshida is running now, so it's currently the fab five.
