Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

For all those harping on my 63 posts: You'll notice that prior to my activity this week, my last post other than a few on the 'waiting for news' thread was in August of 2016. I haven't been here. Those few posts I made at that time didn't get a lot of response. I though that I asked a fairly innocuo...

Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

Indiano, you said that you've been here since this board started. If the present info that Bal is referring to says 2014, I wonder if that coincides with one of the hacks that shut down this site. When V restarted this forum ( from at least two hacks IIRC ), did that mean that member info was wiped...

Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

This is definitely the most active American racing board out there, actually. "Traditional" forums in general are dying though, social media conglomerates have taken over and the conversations have moved to Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit (though r/horseracing isn't very active either). Thank you for...

Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

Yes, I was. Had to get a new username then.

I was here with V, Lydia (the photographer from MD) and many others. If people choose to disbelieve me and make snarky comments that's their prerogative. I'm just looking for a place to talk racing.

Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

I've been on this board since it started and we all migrated over from the AOL message boards. There just doesn't seem to be much activity, and its' really dead compared to how it used to be. I was wondering if people had moved elsewhere. Seems all the racing boards are gone -- Del Mar's, TVG's, etc...

That's a helpful reply. Bugger off.

Why would I post to a dead board?

Re: Fire at San Luis Rey!?

There are lots of good news about found horses, but the current number of dead horses is 46, so there's lots of sad news out there.

Other Racing Message Boards?

So, this board is pretty much dead. Are there others out there that are more active but similar in tenor to this board? Not interested in a purely handicapping board.

Also in the fire area is the farm Ocean Breeze Farm, where Square Eddie stands. Has anyone heard if they are o.k. there?

Cliff Sise said barns were on fire -- all they could do was turn the horses loose in the paddocks.

Re: Fire at San Luis Rey!?

Lots of other horse farms in the area. Ocean Breeze Ranch, former Vessels Stallions, is right in the burn area, and humans have been burned at the ranch. Square Eddie resides there -- not sure how many other horses are there. Very concerned for them.

10 more years for Los Alamitos

Ed Allred, owner of Los Al, estimates maybe 10 more years for the track and is spearheading a ballot measure to get the land rezoned. Can So Cal racing survive with just Santa Anita and Del Mar? http://www.dailynews.com/sports/20160920/after-horse-racing-stops-at-los-alamitos-race-course-what-happen...
