Re: Older Horses - 2019

Mexican Triple Crown winner Kukulkan is looking to get back to the winners circle in much friendlier company than in his last race.

Churchill Downs - 5/24/19 - Race 8 - AOC, $91,000 purse - 1 and 1/16 miles.

Good luck to him - they threw him into some pretty deep water last time out...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

So let's at least do something and get rid of that auxiliary gate. A field of 14 is more than large enough. I'll stand by my earlier message - a field of 14. With horse racing safety being scrutinized with a telescope at this point, they may eventually be forced into this - regardless of the money ...

Is she really that big of a ham, or is that one of those names that slipped by the Jockey Club?
Good one, stark. I think, however, she's named after a town in Illinois. A bit less interesting.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Something not seen too often is a 10yo making the first start of a racing career. Such is the case with 10yo m Effingham (Six Below - Easton, by Lil E. Tee) at Fonner Park this Saturday (5/4/19) in Race 2. She'll be trying to get a piece of that $5,400 purse. It's possible that her efforts may be ov...

Oh wow. This is as big a defection as I can remember. Definitely bigger than I Want Revenge. The cynic in me imagines he won't race again but they kept bringing Normandy Invasion back. Eskendereya was a big one He was second choice on the ML, but I think Uncle Mo was a pretty big one too. WarBiscuit

I don't want to post this because it's news I'm sure no one wants to read, but it's true. TVG just announced. Trapped epiglottis.
That's too bad. I really like him. Hope everything turns out OK for him. Gotta feel bad for Mandella.

So, I am curious as to the difference between the new 360GT riding crop, and those currently being used. Anybody know?
