Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

I think Tacitus stands out here, but I like Intrepid Heart and Sir Winston a bit. Intrepid Heart had that weird start in the Peter Pan that may have thrown him off his game, but he kept grinding along in the stretch and that's a pretty good thing for the Belmont. Sir Winston can't be as far back as...

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

That's a pretty cool stat about Tapit, and I didn't know that only he and Man O War held that record.

Question, is the post real important for a race like the Belmont, or how the track is configured?

Re: Gary West makes an interesting challenge...

I agree that the idea of the challenge is intriguing and cool, I just wish he didn't sound like such sour grapes though.

His attitude about this whole situation is what ruins the challenge for me honestly.

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

i expect riderless horses, interference, an errant flock of geese on the track, and a dog that broke free from its humans tryin to join the race. anything less and i'm going to complain. Would the promised drama that will happen if War of Will wins, be good enough? lol But seriously, I would love f...

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

I mean it is an interesting proposal but of the general public doesn't know it's happening, what "good" will it do?

Seems like a nice cover up for being a sore loser though.

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

If War of Will wins the Preakness will people's opinion change? Will they all of a sudden agree that Max interfered with WoW? What if Country House wins?

Can't wait for the drama that will happen in two weeks.

Re: Positive Outcomes From The Derby

I think it also makes people see that the industry does value the safety of horse and jockey over money and “tradition”. That rules are rules regardless of how big the race is. Many people have no clue that DQs are inconsistent and about the Bayern situation so it makes horse racing look good at the...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Well real bummed Omaha Beach isn’t in it anymore as he was my pick, but I still like Tacitus, Maximum Security, and Game Winner. Throw Vekoma in there as well. I was really high on WoW earlier in the year, but after the La Derby I cooled off but I still think if he can overcome that disaster prep, I...

Re: Omaha Beach Scratched

I’ve been high in Omaha Beach since the Rebel :( sad he won’t get to run his race, but I’m sure he’ll be around for the summer/fall races and stamp himself a top notch horse.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Omaha Beach looks great, as he should. He should fire a great effort in the derby. I still don't know what to think of War of Will. I was very high on him prior to LA Derby. I just worry he didn't get enough out of that prep and will be at a disadvantage according to history.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

What kind of glue and paperclips are they using to hold Maximum Security together? His "works" aren't much faster than 2 minute licks and his "history" is common knowledge at this point, at least as it is told. I was thinking more bubblegum and duct tape but we’re both on the same tract if not trac...

Re: Roadster

I just can't get on the Roadster bandwagon. He didn't really do anything wrong per say in the SA Derby, but he just doesn't stick out to me as the derby winner, or even hitting the board.
