Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

To celebrate Bodexpress' adventure today, let's all recall the greatest riderless horse race of the modern era: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN2bG90Qxdc No no. That would be the horse who beat NATIVE DIVER in one of his Hollywood GCs. I am partial to Fort Larneds Gulfstream Park Handicap win in ...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

I don't know why I'm surprised, looks like they are trying to make a point (any point to avoid having to limit field size?)

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

While we are arguing all of this from now until 2063, I hope they do a scan of MS' right front sometime. Changing leads early could have been the sign of an ouch. Little ouches become bigger.

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

would the same people complaining about the DQ also be complaining if Maximum Security had brought down other horses, caused a fatal accident and not been DQd? Why does the derby have so many different standards than say a Wednesday evening claiming race at a track like Presque Isle? Does Presque I...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

I would suggest people listen to two former jockeys, Rich Migliore and Tony Black, during the latter part of this recording (you can click the slider bar to the 01:16:00 mark, about 3/4s of the way to go straight there) : https://stevebyk.com/broadcast/part-2-johnny-d-rusty-arnold-bret-calhoun-tony...

Re: Positive Outcomes From The Derby

Anyway, I've had three non-racing friends text me asking what on earth happened yesterday when they've otherwise never brought up racing. Any press is good press, right? I suppose, even the Donald is weighing in: "The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough & tumble race on a wet...

Hell no! Speak for yourself.

I think everyone in the entire country heard me screaming with joy. I vividly remember everything about my surroundings. It was amazing.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Find it weird that there appears to not be an article about the Derby on Bloodhorse. Just two about how the Wests are "gracious in defeat" and one about LNJ Foxwoods. Not that I'm wanting to start a flame war with the nuthouse that if the Bloodhorse comments, but I was curious as to whether they we...

How many people mad that Maximum Security was DQed are also mad that Bayern was not DQed? Question of the day for me That would be me, can't help it - the horse ran lights out.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I was at his Florida Derby but didn't bet him because of his odds, wasn't even rooting for him actually - but I can't believe how many horses I've seen who should've come down in big races and didn't - it just feels like the horse got robbed.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Wrong again. You don't need a disaster to merit a DQ This becomes confusing when we watch worse happen daily with nothing done. There is no uniform goal. Personally, I think CDI was making a point on this given the problems facing the sport. I agree, but the general public is going to hate this - t...
