Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

He ran 3 races in 6 weeks to qualify for the Derby. My guess is that's his problem.

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

Mitole is a beast. There is really nothing more I love than really fast horses. I wonder if they try to stretch him out another furling because he didn't look like he'd have a problem going a little further. That pedigree might have a problem though. The most underrated story of the weekend is Catal...

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

Wow. What a perfect day. We didn't win much, but my hair is still straight and my foundation hasn't slid off my face. Perfect temperature and no humidity. Much, much less crowded than the past few years and a tame crowd. Still have to thank Tessa for the secret 3rd floor bathroom that saved my life ...

Re: The Met Mile

I actually feel it's been a little lackluster in the past few years. But this year's rendition is stellar.

So many favorites. But, Mitole! Who breezed yesterday..

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Absolutely true, Somnambulist. All of this was predictable, and we painfully watched it unfold in real time. But it's popular to be divisive and fugly political now, so the bashers here don't surprise me much. I did a really quick search the other day to see if she's ever taken PETA money to justif...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

I don't know why she's being strung up for crusifiction.

I have been on this forum close to 20 years (oh wow) and every year so many of us have said that the industry's inability to get itself together would likely lead to a government step in.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

So all the new measures they implemented were never the problem to begin with.

Who would have thought?

I'm going to be watching the Belmont card through a lucky rabbits foot.

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

@Shamiamnot The Chad Brown-trained Almanaar wins the $200k Monmouth Stakes. If my math is correct, that works out to each of his employees getting $0 if you're a racing fan on twitter, and you're not following this guy, you're missing out. That's the truth. He never fails to make my day a little fu...

Re: The VENT Thread

It's just completely morally wrong that our lives are effectively priced inequally. It's tiring, isn't it. At some point I was actually dumb enough to believe social mobility was a thing. Oh, my former sweet summer child. I've never wanted children and am fortunate enough to have found someone that...

Not surprised. It happens all the time, in horse racing and all industries that exploit immigrant labor.

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

I can't find it in either article after searching - only that he's named in the suit, which he would be as the owner. But I worked a 10 hour day, was at the gym for about 2 and had to face mask, so it's not like I'm operating at full capacity. I'm routinely surprised by what higher-ups don't notice ...

Re: The VENT Thread

Yeah, Som, dealing with our medical system can be as bad as feeling sick without knowing why. The possibilities they throw out there are really scary, and going down dead ends is terribly frustrating! That alone wears you out! And then God-forbid you have bad healthcare. I don't even know anyone wh...

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

Even after reading it I sincerely doubt Chad himself is doing payroll. Does the president of your company do it? Someone he hired likely did it for him. Nowhere did I say it was an ooops. Someone was clearly negligent. How backstretch workers are treated in my opinion is looooow. Had to offset the w...

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

My guess is that Mr. Brown knows horses and turf, and someone else in the business end of his organization is supposed to be paying a little closer attention to these details - or at least that is how it will be played out. How in the world could you possibly believe that you could get away with an...

Re: The VENT Thread

I hope it's nothing. Doctors offices are sometimes worse to deal with than not feeling well. Have you ever gone to a podiatrist? The entire right side of my body hurts and has for years, and as a last ditch effort I went to one and apparently my pronation is "horrific". My left collapses so badly th...
