Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

I ain’t afraid of no long eared rodent. Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents. Thank you for the correction but literal correctness was not my goal. On our little farm we do battle, to various degrees, with various four-limbed creatures consisting of mice, rats, rabbits and squirrels. I refer to them...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

That’s fifty bets for me, but to answer your question, I’d take Max. I think he’s too quick early and would get the jump on Omaha Beach out of the gate. He’d have to work hard for it though. As per usual, there's other speed in the race, cheap but speedy. So if you're suggesting it could turn into ...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Let's pretend..... Max and Omaha do in fact meet up to run 1 1/8th and the odds board reflects that they are both 8/5 odds with three minutes to post (Florida time). You've got one crisp Benjamin burning a hole on your pocket, saved for just this race. You've already ruled out any thought of bettin...

So I just saw a campaign ad on Bloodhorse for Sistercharlie for the Eclipse Award.

Is this common?
It’s a fairly recent phenomenon. It may not have been invented by but it has been honed towards perfection by Team Runhappy.

Re: Santa Anita 2020

So, the horse that broke its leg on the training track on Thursday was trained by Doug O'Neill. Since the tracks were closed to training, this happened at a jog or gallop, and isn't the training track an all weather surface? My first thought is this has to be on the trainer, doesn't it? Breaking do...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Max has had soundness issues? It's been a real long year and I've forgotten. Servis mentioned after the Florida Derby that there was a reason that Max started his career in a Maiden Claimer for 16k and it wasn’t a big secret. Now, I suppose that could have been a veiled attempt at stating, “He trai...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

It's too bad Max doesn't share the same sentiment. Usually the best horses connections take great pride in beating the best opposition. It’s all about the Benjamins........ True that. But it's such easy money, Max should take advantage and beat up the west coast sprinter. If Max weren’t held togeth...

Papa M could always rent a big storage unit and hide Omaha Beach after the Pegasus Lite.😉

It's often been said that Papa Mandella has an excellent dry sense of humor, guess this is an example...... I should've gelded Omaha Beach , it sure would be nice to have him running the next few years! In an interview, once, he was asked about an attitude change in one of his trainees. The questio...

I bet the picture of Maximum Security being led away by the groom at Churchill wins the photography Eclipse.
Nope the picture of War of Will almost falling because of Max going around the turn won.
Has the result been posted or you arguing with yourself?

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

West made one of those technically correct statements you should never make. I find it hard to believe he isn't personally generous with aftercare, at least I sure hope he is, but that comment is still a bad look. Forcing people to donate, especially in specific places, is a slippery slope. There w...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

I actually agree with West on some level, if Stronach wants to make a statement about aftercare, he should make a statement out of his own pocket. That being said, I don't begrudge aftercare any penny they get. Exactly. West needs to start thinking before he speaks and then not speak but as I’ve sa...

Just like the old saying. What do you open the day after Christmas? Golden Gate Fields! And if it rains hard there, the world will be watching the track condition with thoughts of future uses. What happens at GGF, normally when heavy rains come, is that the track is fine but there is so much floodi...

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...
