Re: 2020 Fillies + Mares

I get that she's not going to increase her value as a broodmare very much after getting two eclipse awards as a 3yo, but then why bring her back into training at all this month? I thought they wanted to stretch her out and win some 2 turn races. Just sayin, it doesn't make sense. Not buying she is ...

Re: Top Ten Lists 2020 Kentucky Derby

This just keeps getting better. Pulpit flopped going longer because he lost to Captain Bodgit? Captain Bodgit would be odds on to win the Derby against this crowd. Pulpit won the Bluegrass at the dreaded 9F distance and ran 4th behind some very good horses in the Derby before being injured. He was a...

Re: Top Ten Lists 2020 Kentucky Derby

Charlatan wouldn't even be in the conversation without the Baffert factor. Nor would Nadal, for that matter. It's kind of crazy to me that Tiz the Law isn't being hyped more. His Holy Bull effort was outstanding . That he closed at equal odds with Nadal in Pool 2- off solely that one's maiden win- ...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Jockey Rafael Bejarano was taken to a local hospital during the noon hour on Friday after he slipped and fell in the jockey's room shower, according to a racing official. Yikes. I suppose if you're a jockey you'd never worry about injuries occurring off the track. Didn't Randy Romero suffer a serio...

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

He wasn't doing anything in Dubai. He was in Saudi Arabia. Regardless, something tells me Bob won't have a problem giving him the mount back on Nadal over the bug rider who rode him today. Call me crazy.

Jock agent probably thinking long term, not just this race.

Thanks for remembering Mentor Cane, TA. He was such a gorgeous steel grey, and looked like he was about to become a real G1 sprinter when he tragically died suddenly. :(
I loved Mentor Cane. That was crushing when he broke down.

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

The Uncle Mo colt who won the 6th at Gulfstream today looks like the first maiden breaker to enter the market with the 'most likely to be bought by West Point' sign on him. Caracaro is his name. Looks to me like he's pretty talented despite being under a drive thru the stretch, but suspect these co...

Re: Top Ten Lists 2020 Kentucky Derby

Yeah I don't think the dislike stems from him as a person, but how he trains. You can push a horse too much, and you can push them too little. Sherriffs is generally considered to push his horses far too little. Zenyatta was a late bloomer who required a lot of patience and easy-going. Zenyatta was...

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

While Midnight Bisou had a terrific season, she only ran in restricted races. Not trying to knock her, but she hardly had a Horse of the Year campaign. When you throw in that she lost the most important race of her year, I'm not sure how anyone can realistically think she should be a HOY finalist. S...

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

Shug is the most accessible person in the game. He's also earned a lifetime of respect. If he wants to go off, that's his prerogative. I like that he's passionate about it. He's defending his horse. Good for him.

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

Wait, people here are saying Mott shouldn't have told his rider ( I didn't know he did but will assume posters here are correct ) to claim foul against Maximum Secutrity, who was eventually disqualified? Seriously? The horse interfered with multiple horses. Are you suggesting if the Stewards don't d...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

This is the stupidest thing I've read the whole year. A 2/5 shot makes the lead going 2 turns and the 11:1 fourth choice in the betting (for a 10% owner/'trainer') happily sits the pocket and shockingly (?) gets race ridden at the quarter pole by the 2nd choice with a world class rider who's trying...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

West made one of those technically correct statements you should never make. I find it hard to believe he isn't personally generous with aftercare, at least I sure hope he is, but that comment is still a bad look. Forcing people to donate, especially in specific places, is a slippery slope. There we...

The Santa Anita Oaks makes no sense to me. Just in the last decade the winners include: Stellar Wind, Songbird, Midnight Bisou. Idk how highly they’re regarded, but Paradise Woods and Bellafina won in the last three years. Before this decade includes Beholder and Rags to Riches. It's about also ran...
