Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

Nothing good can come from Stormy Liberal continuing to race. But oh so much can go wrong. Let the almost 8-year-old multi-millionare eat grass at Old Friends. Agree. What could possibly go wrong with a horse who will be 8 in January, and has been on the track for 6 years? This is why we need retir...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

The owner has responded (from horseracingnation) "Peter Miller never mentioned retirement of the horse until Monday after he was informed the horse was being removed from his barn that afternoon and in fact, it was my understanding that he was trying to run him at Del Mar just last week except the ...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

This brouhaha caused me to go back and look at the 2018 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint. What a horse! And ears go straight up when he hits the wire, lol! https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=2018+breeders+cup+turf+sprint&view=detail&mid=EC6F4A38FF0BCB2FC035EC6F4A38FF0BCB2FC035&FORM=VIRE Good to know the ...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

I totally understand Miller going public with this. If anything happens to the horse he wants to be clear he had nothing to do with it. I don't know what Miller did to the horse during his career. Did the horse have injuries that were covered up with meds, etc. like so many horses do? Maybe the hor...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

I also don't think it's the lack of "rescue" organizations or rescue money (I don't like that word because Stormy Liberal does not need rescued, he's not in a kill lot or was left abandoned on a property). MY POINT wasn't about him in particular. When I own an animal, I am responsible for it for li...

Re: New Stallions of 2020

Sporting Chance, by Tiznow, to A & A Stud in New Mexico. Sporting chance won the grade 1 Hopeful Stakes in 2017. I remember him as the colt who couldn't run straight to save his life. I got to see Sporting Chance quite a bit. even first time I saw him though, I said to my friends while we were watc...

Re: New Stallions of 2020

I LIKED Solomini. He was mis managed early on in his career, and being a bit of a head case, that is never good for that kind of horse. that, combined with the fact that we don't do so well with *stayers* here in the U.S. some of these true distance types end up running in a lot of races that are no...

Re: Go East Old Man

Shug is going to Oaklawn,, too? Doesn't he usually go to Florida in the winter? I don't recall him ever stabling horses in Southern California, so if he chooses Hot Springs over Hallandale, it won't matter in Arcadia. He's sending a small string for first time in decades------seems like his son wil...

This is so sad on so many levels that it's hard to know where to start. Taking a shot at my height? Really? What are you, six years old? Keep on trolling. The only one you are, apparently, fooling is yourself. You're right, that wasn't necessary. Edited the quote for correctness. Last add......Chec...

https://www.paulickreport.com/news/the-biz/khrc-asmussen-suspended-30-days-for-pair-of-acepromazine-overages/ I firmly believe that there is NO reason a horse should need to be ridden with the assistance of medications like Ace..

Re: Favorite Photos of Race Horses

The Aga Khan's Zarkava.........check out her "span".....this is why she was said to have wings. She retired undefeated, and when she won the Arc, she was the first filly to win the Arc in 15 years (since Urban Sea in 1993.) Timeform gave her a 133, 1point less than Curlin, who was rated top horse of...

Re: The Cigar Mile

So basically, all the horses who posed any real threat to Max Security have either already raced or aren't racing in this.
