Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Independence Hall will be getting a break and then focusing on one turn races. Honestly, I think that's the best bet for him. After the Sam Davis, I didn't think he wanted a route of ground, and the Florida Derby confirmed it for me. He's very talented and I think he'll be a handful in those one tur...

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Here's the entire quote from JS: “Tough times right now,” said John Shirreffs, the trainer of Honor A. P., who was scheduled to run Saturday in the Santa Anita. Derby. “Since we’re not running Saturday, you have to back off a little, not do as much as if you were running. You don’t want to overtrain...

Re: Santa Anita to close ...

I think they should move the Derby to Los Alamitos, let these colts run as they are ready to run while trying to get SA reopened. Honestly, the Affirmed should have been moved up with a bumped up purse and scheduled this Saturday--a moot point now I know--and the SA Derby moved to the end of the me...

Re: Santa Anita to close ...

Well, the SA Derby is off, sigh... https://www.santaanita.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/SAP_horsemen_4.3_announcement.pdf This is frustrating, especially after what Steve Haskins just said: They seem to be cautiously optimistic, but unfortunately the officials of the L.A. County Health Dept bought ...

There’s hope that the SA closure will be short-lived. Lots of works today, including Honor A.P. in 1:00 and change...Thousand Words also worked Easy https://twitter.com/i/status/1244006837482958848 He looked great - I get a kick out of watching this colt work; he just makes me smile.

Re: Santa Anita to close ...

Just a wild random thought..... Could the SantaAnita horses relocate to Los Alamitos just outside of arm's length of the LA City Council? Have to think that even the CHRB would bless it, no? I was thinking they could at least run the SA Derby at Golden Gate, but Steve Haskins pointed out that the s...

Re: Saturday Gulfstream Watchalong

Gary Stevens suggested that, if TTL were his, he would bring him back for the 1st Saturday in May Arkansas Derby. The blaze-faced colt is sharp right now, so why not? It would be another big purse, a G1 on his resume, and then give him time off before prepping for the Sept. Derby. I imagine every o...

Tiz the Law is very good, but I feel like no one else ran their race. Still it’s hard not to love this very talented, beautiful colt

Re: Santa Anita to close ...

Yeah, I understand .....I also just lost my job because of the virus, so looking forward to favorite horses running was at least making me excited. Still, you’re right - I live in Nassau county, and yes, NY (I’m not sure about the county - I try not to pay too much attention to the news because it’...

Great. Something else to be depressed about. I’m bummed. I’m bummed because I was looking forward to seeing Honor A.P. in the SA Derby, because following racing has been a distraction from all the crappy things going on, because there’s no baseball, no sports, no entertainment.

If Stronach and the horsemen got together and worked out the decision I'm okay with it.

If LA politicians forced the decision on them, then not so much.
This was an LA county decision - they made it right before first post.

Santa Anita to close ...

Per DRF, Santa Anita is closing....so no SA Derby, obviously. There’s no where for any of these horses to run - what a tough situation. Do the trainers all just let them down for a month or so?

Re: Kentucky Derby and the Coronavirus

I feel for the trainers; they need to keep their horses sharp without knowing when or if they'll be able to run
