Re: Vox populi voting open

They certainly all have their own large fan bases, and one or two will be going home with an Eclipse in their pocket. Have to go with Belvoir Bay as well though. A wonderful story. Midnight Bisou close after BB, for me. Doesn't matter how frivolous, meaningless or worthless this award might seem to ...

Maryland Racing Commission - A Good Blueprint...

The establishment of the new House Rules appear to be a very good step in the proper direction. Is this a microcosm of what is needed nationally - every state and track falling under the same rules and regulations - under one governing body, and continuously tweaking and strengthening those rules?

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 ...

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.
