Re: Million Dollar Louisiana Derby

Looked bad to me and even more so in the video. I sure wouldn't want to take a step like that. It would probably throw my back out among other things. Painful to look at. I don't see how he could be a whole lot better in one day. That was pretty extreme. I twisted my ankle a few years ago and it was...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Say the chalk does win the Derby. I see an upset right away in the Preakness. It's one of those years. Or, rather than major upsets, maybe more like 2007 when fairly evenly matched foes take turns beating each other up. So far, no single really outstanding star this year, though the preps aren't ov...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Rocketry is back! Entered in Skip Away Stakes at 1- 3/16 Miles. Purse $100,000 at Gulfstream on Friday, March 29. Kind of on the short end for him, but that was when he was on the grass, so we'll see if he can win at this shorter distance on the dirt.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Spinoff ran well to finish second in the LA Derby today. He earned 40 points, which should be enough to get him in the Kentucky Derby! Any comments from Spinoff's connection regarding pointing him to the KY Derby? He's definitely going. I read on DRF that Pletcher said he would train up to the Derby.

Re: Million Dollar Louisiana Derby

I hope they have him examined every way possible. Nuclear scan, etc. I keep thinking of Animal Kingdom getting slammed at the beginning of the Belmont and fracturing his hip, yet running with that injury for 1 1/2 miles. He was out until the next spring.

Spinoff ran well to finish second in the LA Derby today. He earned 40 points, which should be enough to get him in the Kentucky Derby! He was in stall #10, so had to use some speed early to get a good position. He stalked in 3rd and actually got to the lead at the beginning of the stretch. Hung on ...

Goodbye Earl won race #6 at Oaklawn Park today. I guess she was channeling the Dixie Chicks today. Her record is now 4-1-0-0.

Re: 2019 derby prep races.

If they split the Remsen I read that the house will throw in some purse money. But what about the Derby points, will both winners get the same? Got to, no? I've read a couple different things. One was stated by Steve Haskin on Bloodhorse ...something about each heat would be worth $750K and the poi...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Samara won the Capitiva Island Stakes (race #12) at Gulfstream today. Her record is now 15-5-3-0. She is Hard Spun's 68th stakes winner at the very least. I don't know how up to date the Darley website is.

Ballast won race #7 at Murray Bridge Racecourse in South Australia on March 7. His record is now 44-3-5-3. Led almost the whole way, lost the lead heading for home, then fought back and won. Nice job. He wears the #12 saddlecloth, breaks from gate 3. video replay: http://www.theracessa.com.au/meeti...
