That looks like a quality field...which IMHO is unfortunate. Saudi Arabia doesn't deserve it.
Too bad the jocks wouldn't get away with wearing armbands that say 'Remember Jamal Kashoggi.' :evil:

I also find it humorous that at the same time they are calling him out for not stamping his foals, they are also criticizing him for giving them his conformation.
If true, it's a legitimate criticism. These two things are not mutually exclusive.

Cosmic Cat was pulled up with an obvious front injury in the feature R8 at Fair Grounds today (MSW for 2 year olds). Don't expect to hear anything, but thought I'd mention it here.

Re: Santa Anita 2020

Costs them a lot less than replacing the asbestos-filled firetraps many of them have to live in. They can "asbestos-filled" or they can be "firetraps", but they can't be both. Why can’t it be both? With asbestos- filled being a descriptor for firetrap? Asbestos is the most effective fireproofing ma...

Santa Anita will serve Christmas Eve dinner to 350 backstretch workers and their families, and there will be Santa, music, decorations and presents for the children. This makes me happy for such a hard working and dedicated group. Costs them a lot less than replacing the asbestos-filled firetraps m...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

All this being said, I think his sale can also be a commentary on where the sport stands in America. The foal share agreement for California and the West is a problem because pretty much all those circuits are on life support. The Taylors depend on the industry for their wealth. It seems to me they...

Re: PETA Is A Bully

I am wondering what PETA actually does FOR animals. I know the ASPCA does a loooot of good work. All I ever hear about Peta is that they are working the PR machinery. Apart from them putting pets down in their shelters. What kind of animal rights organization runs a kill shelter?!? There are so man...
