Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

The SATs are what American high school students take to use for college entrance scores. I'd say the JRA test is more along the lines of the GRE (what college graduates have to take to enter post-graduate school for master's degree or PhD)... only *one* rider passed it this time.

Yeahhhhh they were never going to catch her. That was ridiculously impressive... Mikki Charm hung on, what a race she ran! And Cantabile up for third...

Re: Random Retiree News

@IFARnews This past Monday, the JRA held its first Retired Racehorse Showcase Event at Tokyo Racecourse.

Re: Cozmic One

Nobody is saying it DOESN'T mean something. But just because someone doesn't like reading/hearing criticism about a horse, doesn't necessarily make it invalid, either. *shrug*

Re: Cozmic One

Uh, Coz was just as "new" at his job as the others entered in the competition. He's not a perfect snowflake, and that's perfectly fine but when he's entered in a *competition* for a second *career* that he doesn't particularly seem well-suited for, there's nothing harsh about saying so. From what I'...
