Re: Breeders Cup Upcoming Venues

very happy to know the BC will be at Santa Anita in 2019 - great time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Zenyatta's win in the classic - will never ever forget that day - it was the happiest and most thrilling day to be at Santa Anita. Good times. 8-) I only attended the BC in 2003, 2008, and 200...

Re: Justify

Justify could be considered the worst TC winner and nothing changes on how I feel about him. Like MoviePass, the ride was fun while it lasted...

Re: Wooooooohoooo, there we go!

I'm still trying to get used to the new layout. I saw it last Saturday but didn't bother to make a comment.

It looks pretty good so far. Seems more mobile browser friendly. Thanks, Kurenai.

Re: Welcome to Del Mar 2018

I misread the article and thought Victor Espinoza had died but it was the horse. Hope Victor gets back soon. I hate Del Mar. Like my Uncle, I NEVER WIN playing Del Mar. It's a nice track although quite small and jam-packed. Solano Beach is close. Love the area but hate playing Del Mar. I don’t have ...

Re: Justify

I honestly don't care how horses get judged by others. Justify could rank as the worst Triple Crown winner and it wouldn't bother me. I'll only care and remember the few wonderful memories he brought me. Breeding money will always prevent young colts from ever reaching true greatness of yesteryear.

Worth waking up early and getting this poster autographed by Mike Smith. I'm planning to frame it as well.

Re: Justify/Restoring Hope...quite the duo

*Fourth* start by Justify, I meant. In Vino's fourth start, he loses the G2 Tampa Bay Derby by 6 lengths to Quip. Flameaway finished ahead of him for the second time. Vino Rosso and Noble Indy are Pletcher's B-players. Both Audible and Magnum Moon before his 19th place finish were regarded higher. J...

Re: Justify/Restoring Hope...quite the duo

https://youtu.be/3B86O8H97W8 I can't believe ONE horse can block an entire field. Repole is just a sore loser. Vino couldn't beat Justify in the Derby. What's his excuses there? That Promises Fulfilled didn't run fast enough to soften him up? It's ok to have a rabbit, but it's not ok to counter one?...

Just some people crying over spilled milk. Where was Noble Indy five weeks ago? Restoring Hope wasn't there, was he? Noble Indy finished 17th. If Promises Fulfilled couldn't soften Justify enough, what makes me think Noble Indy could? It's perfectly legal to have Restoring Hope. What's Justify's bod...

Re: Justify/Restoring Hope...quite the duo

Those opponents had a 5-week break to be fresher. Had their chance to beat Justify without Restoring Hope protecting him in the Kentucky Derby. Bravazo was the closest horse to ever beat Justify in any race. He broke from the inside of Restoring Hope. Still couldn't beat him. And this crop is regard...

Re: Justify/Restoring Hope...quite the duo

I just think of Chad Brown. Good Magic had two shots to beat Justify and couldn't do it. Once from off the pace and the other in a sustained early duel whie being lost in the fog. The other with Gronkowski was way out of it. How about Bolt d'Oro nearly finishing ahead of McKinzie? Had the 2nd highes...
