Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Curious to hear from anybody that saw this interview yesterday, as recapped in the LA Times newsletter today..... NBC’s telecast of the Pennsylvania Derby addressed the Justify issue by bringing in veteran journalist Tim Layden to discuss it with Nick Luck. I’ll state up front that Tim and I are fri...

Re: Belmont

Is this all morning or afternoon stuff? Not that it matters. Life is choatic these days and I haven't been paying attention too much. Still no local media reporting on any of it as far as I know. But I might be wrong. A lot of the local papers I can think of are linked to cable networks and +1 stre...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

What say you? As for the poll, if you want the right answers, you have to ask the right questions. ......I generally don't like polls unless I know who formulated them and how they arrived at the questions, so I can figure out the biases included in the poll. I think the biases held by the general ...

Final poll results from the LATImes.... There were about 1,000 voters 1. It was much ado about nothing —35.4% 2. The CHRB did nothing wrong but could have handled it better —23.6% 3. The test results should have been made public immediately —21.8% 4. CHRB was doing trainer Bob Baffert a favor —12.2...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I agree, the big issue is that no one in racing is actually upset/doing anything about it. They’re just letting CHRB do what they want. A central governing system could help with this in the future or could still be as uncaring as everyone else is now. What do you think a central governing system w...
