Re: what tracks will be open after Sunday?

Kind of a day to day deal at this point. Oaklawn stays running unless they are forced to stop , Gulfstream and Tampa Bay are feeling pressure. Out west, Golden Gate, Los Alamitos, Fonner, Will Rogers Downs and Remington (QH meet) are all scheduled to run - for now. The last 3 are a bit off the beat...

Re: Gulfstream threatens legal action if forced to shut down racing

Florida is probably going to start seeing their case numbers rise in another week or two, especially since their Governor was basically shamed into closing the beaches and would have left them open. Heard a different expert on TV say tha t New Yorkers driving down the coast to Florida will be creat...

Re: Santa Anita to close ...

Gulfstream Park will most likely be the last racing day for a long time (unless they can isolate the track population and the tracks do mandatory testing and some other really strict guidelines, but then no horses could ship in and out either). Tomorrow is the last day of the winter meet (day after...

Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

Mucho Gusto had a nice prep for the Saudi Cup. . . . And hats off to War Story, that little guy first hit the track in 2014. War Story always seems to be there in the end. That little gelding just always gives his all. I bet him to show and was thrilled to see him get up there. I had to watch the r...

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

Let alone the Kentucky Derby? How are the rules or expectations different for the Derby than a 10K claimer at Los Alamitos? In fact, I'd argue the application of the standards of clean and safe racing to be applied more stringently for horse racing's showcase and a 20 horse field....not less so.......

I did call and spoke to a security person. We had a bit of an Abbott & Costello conversation. She was adamant that I stay off the “dirt” because it could be dangerous.
Bienvenidos a Miami :lol:

I think you'll be fine.

Thanks, we’re leaving from the Port of Miami. I think we’ll have time for Hialeah. Is it easy enough to look around , there or are areas restricted?
I have not been there in a few years, they completed a reno and opened a casino so would think pretty open ( I would call and ask)

Re: Stronach v. Stronach

Other than the track, not much to see at Gulfstream unless you want to do some home shopping (crate and barrel, west elm, pottery barn) but if you wanted to squeeze it in u could do the breakfast tour before Hialeah Park or stop after if you’re staying in Ft Lauderdale area, watch races and eat at C...

Re: Stronach v. Stronach

What Id really like to know is which Stronach decided to renovate and tear up the limited seating at Gulfstream and not have it done before the winter meet starts, it truly is something of a joke, the restructure of the Pegasus is just icing on the cake. Are they adding to the seating or just impro...
