Re: Big Saturday @ The Spa

I feel like finding trouble is a colloquial expression for being unlucky.

Re: The Runhappy

It's not just TVG. The Saratoga racing coverage on Fox was loaded with Runhappy ads and his name was emblazoned ( digitally ) all over the racetrack. Mattress Mack has taken 'supporting my stallion' to a whole new level. :shock: :roll: I guess I don't see the problem. At least someone wants to pay ...

I was so tickled to see little Imperial Hint kick ass in the Vanderbilt, but WTH happened to Mitole? Was the pace so fast that he was burnt out in the stretch? :?
He hit the gate leaving it. Whether or not that's a valid reason who knows.

Re: Haskell Day

I know Max stayed up but, if I were a steward, I'd want to have a long conversation with Saez. That pinhead seems to think that cutting off his competition is the right way to win a race, no matter how reckless it is. :evil: Reckless is right. His ride in the Molly Pitcher Stakes was questionable a...

Re: Haskell Day

This entire sport looks more like a joke daily. What's worse? The whole debacle over post time or Monmouths refusal to do anything to insult the West family?

Re: Saratoga 2019

The social media pressure on Monmouth to cancel is pretty crazy. I'm not sure if I've seen anything like it. At least, for racing.

Of course most of them are from silly people who can't spell or type of sentence. Ignorance goes a long, long ways though and it's killed things bigger than racing.

For those of you that live in it, is the weather really that bad compared to prior years or is it possible that the industry is being extremely cautious in favor of horse welfare? thanks.

Has it been established why Preservationist is only coming into form as a 6 year old? I see he only has 8 starts.
We don't look the gift if an older thoroughbred still running at 6 in the mouth.

Re: The Belmont Derby

Yeah, it's not responsible to do it just because no one had the winner (unless you're my boyfriend). Immediately after I went back over to see where I was wrong and I guess a clean trip does count for a lot. In a full, competitive field anything can happen. Maybe he's the only horse in the field tha...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2019

Trying to read between the lines here - are they insinuating he is doing something to his horses? That's my guess. It seems arbitrary to randomly pick him when I think there are better suggestions. Unless this is a Dutrow situation and Jerry was just pissing off the wrong people. Santa Anita blamin...
