Re: Horse Racing Is Its Own Worst Enemy

Are they? I think people have a really negative opinion of racing without PETA's help. I don't see what they're doing to hurt racing so badly in social media at the moment Well, the photo they (PETA) posted today of Bridget Moloney laying in the garbage dump and being viewed globally isn't winning ...

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Nice to see Arklow finally get his G1 in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic today. Just a good old tough, hard knockin' horse. Doesn't get enough love around here!

Re: Calculator?

I've wondered about him, as well. Miller probably sees that he has not been all that stellar in 2019, and maybe he's getting a long break or they're not at all sure what to do with him. As you point out, he is 7, and I don't know where you would place him in races these days. Too good of a horse to ...

Just a brief mention of a couple of War Horses that were followed on these pages who, unfortunately, have recently expired.

I'm with you, Treve. And Curtis, thanks so much for keeping us updated on Border Run. It's a joy to read about him and to know how well loved and pampered he is! Turns out, everybody is lucky - and that's a good story.

Oh no. :cry: I was a huge fan when she was racing, and stated ( on another forum ) that IMHO she deserved to be served by the finest Kentucky blue blood stallions when she retired. And she was.

Fort Erie Race Track

For those who may need a respite from the insane world of thoroughbred racing, you may add to the list of zebras, camels, ostriches - et al, the lowly (pun intended) Bassett hound.

Monomoy Girl could potentially use either the Ack Ack or the Lukas Classic as her comeback race. Both are open to males.
Return delayed.
