No, she's fine. The big shoes they were referencing were those left by her former stablemate, the recently retired Atreides. ;)

And let's not overlook that he was the favorite in his last race (where he was claimed) on 2/1, dueled in second/third place before falling back to last. Now under the auspices of "No Guts No Glory" stable, trainer Gina Rosenthal. I am hoping that he'll either not draw in or get scratched..

Star of Sarava scratched- 3 other horses in the field did also scratch, so one would think it's not because this one was an AE. Reason is not listed as of yet.

The weather is still pretty bad back East, which forced Aqueduct to cancel today. Penn may or may not cancel, but perhaps some owners +/or trainers are reluctant to run their horses even if the track doesn't cancel.

I see horses run back on 'short' rest (7-14 days), and sometimes wi, at tracks big and small every week. It all goes back on the trainers and their inherent responsibility to only run horses when they're right and ready. And this brings me back to my assertion that trainers should be punished for on-track breakdowns and DNFs.


NYRA listened to me and discontinued their 15 day rule.

We figured that wouldn't last long. I found the "poor performance list" aka Stewards List.

Mott's General Bellamy is on it for his poor finish in the Withers on 2/7. Hasn't had any works since either.
