Re: Saratoga 2019

To quote Mark Twain, Saturday will be "hot enough to melt brass doorknobs" and I'm sure the industry is being especially careful these days. Better safe than sorry is the new credo in TB racing. Always should have been. I'll be extremely curious to see how Monmouth handles this situation on their ve...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

i had asked about Jerseymooseisloose, who was pulled up in the last race at Monmouth on Sunday, in the "Waiting for Word on..." forum, but found out today that she was indeed euthanized after her injury. Sorry to hear that. I tried, but could not find any information about her. RIP Jerseymooseisloo...

Re: Welcome to Arizona Downs

Well, that didn't last long either - the suspension of racing, that is. Track reopens for business this Saturday (7/20/19). Have not heard if Michael Wrona will be back.

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2019

Maybe? Perhaps there is some sort of memorial/celebration of Rick Violette, and that's what prompted the NY guys to share their memories? Although a lot of them had to do with arguments...and of becoming friends after a big argument with the man. ;) May have been discussing Mr.Violette in conjuncti...

Any word on the horse that fell right at the line in race 10 yesterday (Friday)?
Unfortunately, Fight Night was euthanized.

Re: In Memoriam 2019

Cidago said Sea Hero has passed away at age 29. Sorry to hear this news, but he attained a ripe old age. Kind of a forgotten Kentucky Derby winner for many. I remember watching his Derby on TV, but I did get to see him win the Travers in person - my first trip to Saratoga ! Now who is the oldest su...

Re: The End of Suffolk Downs

Well that was... a day.
