Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Wasn't Omaha Beach suppose to race in 2020? or was the plan always to retire? The stud deal that was announced in the Spring just said, he would go to Spendthrift upon his retirement, there was no year mentioned but 99% of the time once a stud deal is done the horse is retired at the end of the yea...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

and to add to what Tessa said, knowing how the other horses tested is something we need to know. As has been brought up, a contamination level as high as Justify had........that would have called for a broad announcement to each and every horseman and barn at SA.......to not do so showed a complete...

Can somebody here who doesn't believe the "hay theory" please tell me how it did happen, thanks.
I mean my grandmother told me that my grandfather was given scopolamine by doctors some time ago for a reason I can't remember. I imagine it may be available in a liquid IV form?

Wasn't Omaha Beach suppose to race in 2020? or was the plan always to retire? Does it matter? I guess even at his age Mr. Porter would rather sit on another pile of millions than watch his fine horse race another [hopefully unabbreviated] season. I mean it doesn’t but I was simply asking a question...

Sorry for not being super interested in this race because I had a premonition the above would happen.

I am interested to see War of Will and Mr. Money, however.
I was going to be surprised if Max didn't scratch. He's scratched from like three races, correct?

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

Seems like Max doesn’t hold up well. It seems like he’s always scratching from races.

I’m excited to see War of Will and Mr Money, was looking forward to Max but bummer.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I don’t know why what Graham said matters? The limit is 75 and he had 300. It’s not like the 75 limit is measured different than Justify’s 300. He was wayyyy over the limit and if I read Tessa’s articles right that’s an insanely high level for just “accidental food contamination” I also stated that ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Just because a vet would “never” use it as a PED because if side effects doesn’t mean the man with 7 dead horses wouldn’t. The amount of blind eye people are using to explain this away is annoying and slightly disturbing. Even if given by an accident there is a reason it’s banned over a certain lim...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Sadly it doesn’t seem to be affecting his reputation. Even respected vets are trying to “explain away” Justify’s positive. Why people want to protect Baffert is beyond me. I imagine if this was another trainer no one would be so protective. I agree, the big issue is that no one in racing is actually...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Stupid question. Have any of the other trainers and/ or horses with scopolamine positives at the same time as Justify been identified? It may have been obvious in the articles but I can't recall seeing it. Especially if the levels were comparable, how were these cases handled? Thanks so much. And, ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I find it funny that Baffert and Co. think "accidental contamination" is even a good excuse. You train horses worth more than houses and your feeding regiment is so poor that they get accidental contaminations at such incredibly high amounts? As an owner that would make me question his ability to ca...

Re: Favorite Photos of Race Horses

I remember reading an explanation for that is that horses with a lot of white in their eyes are "crazier" because their vision is different. Is that true, probably not but I always thought it was interesting how people justify ol' wives tales. I always thought people said that just because they look...

For all the talk we made about various horses winning the TC with an asterisk, will Justify be the first to actually get that *.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I mean I am not surprised in any way, which is sad. For whatever reason, they want to kiss Baffert's ass and its the detriment of the sport. The would have most definitely DQed a smaller/different trainer. It's also not surprising that Justify was on performance enhancers. He did a lot of stuff hist...

I'm all for giving sound/healthy racehorses a new career. He's only 9, which is young for a horse.

As long as he stays healthy/happy, why not let him stay active.

Sham.
a TC winner in almost any other year, he sure got unlucky being born in '70.
Speaking of which, I'm surprised there's no love for Alydar yet.
I mentioned him, but I am surprised no one else has.
