Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

When are they going to stick War of Will on the turf? His first four starts were on the turf. He didn’t break his maiden until he went to the dirt. They didn’t exactly find the easiest spots in those turf races though after the initial MSW. Try it again? His knees are basically in his forehead when...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Bobs 3 million dollar baby Cezanne out with mild injury- won’t race until end of Jan . Three races before the Derby. Just they way they planned it. :lol: So with Bob’s mantra of, “The Good One’s can hold up to it,” where does that leave Cezanne? Will a year from now he turn up without a couple of v...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

The only thing I’d be worried about in regards to Omaha Beach is his bouncing. For that reason he’s worth trying to beat because he’ll be seriously over bet. I think any good router can sprint which is why I thought Omaha Beach was all but sure to win his comeback. I don’t know what Catalina Cruise...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

I feel like it's hard for sprinters to stay in form all season. I don't know why or if that's something anecdotal. Imperial Hint has been running lights out lately so I'm inclined to agree. I love Mitole but he's never won at 6f against this level. Sprinting is tough on a horse because of the way t...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Danny Dimes is making a comeback. I kind of don't get the wavering with Cataliner Cruiser. There is a big difference between 6f and 8f, and I don't think I have confidence in a horse where the trainer is all over the place. I feel the same about Omaha Beach. The only thing I’d be worried about in r...

Re: Two Zayat horses to be sold over unpaid bills

Yes, people are definitely leaving this forum and racing conversation in general because we're just too mean to the millionaires who don't pay their bills. Won't someone please think of the rich people? America is hard enough on them already! (just a little fun fact: I know of at least one poster w...

Re: Santa Anita Autumn Meet

Just saw the article where Steve Knapp was fined for Emtech's blood coming back with an excessive amount of Bute in his last race at Del Mar. Surely, there is a faster way of getting these blood test results back, and if there is a positive on the first sample maybe the horse should not be allowed ...

Whoever is in charge of the TV cameras at Breeders Cup should be advised to point up to the ceiling in the saddling area, the addition of the big ass fans really has made a positive difference! https://www.bigassfans.com/case-studies/santa-anita-park/ Yeah, it’s just a silly colloquialism and it gi...

Re: New Dirt Mile sponser...

You all are totally missing the “big” picture. Just imagine the possibilities. Instead of that staid old call to the post, Sir Mix-A-Lot does a musical interlude. When it’s time to award the trophy Kim Kardashian appears to present the hardware. It could make for a very well rounded presentation.

Good camera for photographing races? I know this might be off-topic, but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good camera for photographing races?

Joel Rosario will ride McKinzie in the Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita, trainer Bob Baffert said on Wednesday.
Interesting choice. Besides the whip, McKinzie must also hate the rail.

Re: 2019 Breeders Cup Classic and Watch

after those races he won at Oaklawn earlier this year, it sure looked like he could get the 1 1/4 without any problem - would love to see him do it. Had he not gotten sick at Del Mar and been able to get in the Shared Belief and then the PA Derby. But I just don’t see Papa M doing that off of one s...

Re: Santa Anita Autumn Meet

are we sure Omaha is going to be retired at the end of this year? a couple of the tvg guys seemed to refer to him as being a monster next year - things like that - so I started to wonder - maybe Mr Porter plans on running him next year(?) - that would be fun. If he goes in the Sprint, I think they’...
