Re: Vet Allday to Breeders' Cup: 'You blew it'

So just to be clear, people here believe it is better to be ignorant than to seek information?

If that's the case, I will respectfully disagree.

Re: Vet Allday to Breeders' Cup: 'You blew it'

on the reals, i don't know a lot about him, but maybe it's a good thing a vet is calling out the bc/sa vets? i dunno. I'm not sure why you keep telling us that you don't know who Steve Allday is, as he is about as well known a vet as there is in the game, and there is plenty of information availabl...

Open vet records.

If I was a voter I'd write in a vote for Belvoir Bay for Champion Turf Mare.
Good thing you aren't a voter.

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Independence Hall (by Constitution) won the Remsen (G3) at Aqueduct today by 12 1/2 lengths. Nashua....the Remsen is on 12/7. This was easily the most impressive 2YO performance of the year, anywhere in North America, on any surface. It was freakishly good. You need to watch if you haven't seen thi...

It's a misconception that Chad was waffling. It was an internal debate and there were a lot of factors involved. Chad pretty much always wanted to run him in this race.
To be fair, us peons don't have access to that type of information.
Sigh.

Re: 2019 BC Turf

I think it's a short price for a horse that has never run at this distance. There's nothing in his pedigree that suggest he'll either love or it hate it, and I just guess I see better value here when you have horses getting Lasix for the first time, or for the first time after a spell. I don't like...

Re: 2019 BC Turf

At 9-5 you absolutely have to go against Bricks and Morter. You never know what to do with those O'Brien horses; either they burn you or they don't. Wish they all had a definable form on firm courses. I could talk myself onto Arklow. Why would anyone "absolutely" go against Bricks and Mortar at 9:5?

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

In the 6.5F races down the hill, the horses are travelling at a high rate of speed when they cross the dirt, which perhaps may have contributed to the almost double the rate of fatalities per thousand in those races vs the overall fatality rate. In the distance races, 10F and 12F during this BC, the...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Okay, since I am having difficulty with time still, am I reading things right that TV coverage begins at 3:30 pm EST?? So the F&M Sprint isn't being televised live on NBCSN? It will only be available live via TVG and the Breeders Cup website? Can anyone confirm, before I tell people to put on NBCSN...

Omaha Beach looks insane, I wish he was going in something more exciting than the dirt mile. But then I remember that awesome performance Liam's Map turned in and maybe we'll be treated to that again.

I wish they'd draw already. I'd like some pps!
They draw at 7pm. Seems later than usual.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Fired up after a little R&R it seems? I am conveying scuttlebutt. Hardly endorsing the horse, having not seen his sheet yet, but he will be a price. Regardless, I may be tapped out well before that race goes to post. Side note....it's a shame what that owner/'trainer' is doing recently to that poor...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

The Instagrand/Complexity matchup is an interesting one. There are a few more horses in there that can run as well. Another horse who should be reappearing in the entries soon in Network Effect.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Both dirt sprint races, no? Boys are deep and talented top to bottom. Fillies, while it doesn't go very deep (imo), have the classic matchup of top 3yo filly vs top older mare. I don't find the F&M Sprint overly compelling, but I wish the connections of Secret Spice would actually try to win a BC r...
