Re: No Whip Friday @ Santa Anita

Thanks Sparrow Castle. Would be nice to see this take hold and become the standard across the land.

Re: No Whip Friday @ Santa Anita

So, I am curious as to the difference between the new 360GT riding crop, and those currently being used. Anybody know? As one who travels around this land visiting many of the lower level bush tracks, I don't believe that it is my imagination that many of these jockeys seem to be a bit more brutal w...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Our 11yo millionaire friend Slim Shadey makes his 4th start of the year on Saturday (4/6) at Aqueduct in Race 5. 48K claimer, and you can own him for 25K. I'd buy him with my Fed Tax refund, but I'd need another $24,700 to make it work...

Go get 'em Slim!

Re: Portland Meadows - R.I.P.

As I prepare for a final goodbye to Suffolk Downs -- final live card on June 30, it was announced last week -- I say farewell to Portland Meadows. I doubt the Oregon fair circuit can survive without a full-time track, and the Oregon breeding industry probably breathes its last, too. I, too, could n...

Portland Meadows - R.I.P.

Well , after 73 years of racing, Portland Meadows will join the ranks of the fallen. Like Suffolk Downs later this year and Hazel Park last year, redevelopment continues to take its toll. I guess that leaves Emerald Downs and a few Fair circuits to carry on in the Pacific Northwest. One track too ma...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

The Santa Anita racing office late on Thursday sent an alert to horsemen that said that jockeys and exercise riders may use the whip for "corrective safety measures only," effective immediately. What they are calling a "cushion crop" - is that the standard crop that has been in use all along? WarBi...

Re: Rockport Birdie and a few others

I tried finding some information on them as well, but came up empty. Will continue with the detective work though - maybe something will turn up. Thought for sure that old Trelawny was heading into retirement, and was surprised to see the workout posted. Best of luck to him - he's a popular and good...

10yo h Vedelago (Red Clubs - Queen Shy, by Marju), 1st at Turfway Park (3/2/19). 50 - 13-5-6, $512,071. How did an Irish-bred Italian G1 winner wind up in $5k claiming races at Turfway? And intact, no less. I was wondering if anyone else would notice that. Looks like he was a pretty decent racer in...

The Portland Meadows list is up on Horse Racing Wrongs, and Memphis Mobster is indeed gone, from a fractured pastern. Rip sweet old horse, wish he could have enjoyed a long retirement.
