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

But what confuses me is the amount he had in his system? Like 300 ng/ml is a lot for contamination. even if it was "accidental" it was still over the limit and he should have been DQed Did the other horses have such high levels? It’s not a slam dunk that he would have been DQ’d due to the possibili...

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

And, were they all Baffert horses? Not sure how obtaining hay and straw is handled at a track. Presumably the high rollers would have their own trusted suppliers, and the less top drawer horses could get "standard" quality through the track? They were not unless Baffert has 4 different barns at San...

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

For all the talk we made about various horses winning the TC with an asterisk, will Justify be the first to actually get that *. If it turns out to be irrefutable that Justify was aided in the Santa Anita Derby by the said PED, I would imagine and advocate his DQ from the KY Derby. As far as the ot...

Big congratulations, wish the rest of the country could follow your lead, thanks.

Honor AP, a 2 yo who looked a lot like HC rallied from last to be second at Del Mar about a month or so ago in a maiden race? Has he raced again? Thanks

Re: Where are these Union Rags babies?

I assume Melatonin is at his owner's farm living the good life? That he is. Hofmans said he could have come back—and he wanted to try—but the owner said Melatonin had been good to her and had done enough so he’s a pasture pet and has the temperament for it. The other gelding is Preacher Roe, if any...

Absolutely.......talk about a closer, he could be Silky Sullivanesque. Earned his keep in the shed, too.

Re: Honor Code ...

Unbridled was a closer. He seemed to eek out a living as a stallion. A.P. Indy as well. And it's easy to forget, given how fast his offspring tend to be, that Tapit wasn't exactly a speedster either. I don't have any particular feelings towards Honor Code, but he was a quality horse, and that fact ...

Re: Honor Code ...

Pleasant Colony did okay......really it’s all about turn of foot not so much when it’s used. Honor Code had turn of foot and he was special from 7-8f. He could get 9, but I liked him best at 7-8f around one turn.

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

The Del Mar Futurity (G1) was a cluster. Heavy favorite Eight Rings dumped the jock and caused the 1 horse to lose his rider. Both horses are okay, but DVD is being taken to the hospital. Nucky (35-1) won, but had to survive a claim of foul. And Garth, the other Baffert, ran like he bled. Pre-race ...

Re: The derby to possibly get one gate

Need to drop field to 14 and use just the one standard gate. That will never happen- until---there is a catastrophe-- we came pretty close last year to a catastrophe IMO it is only a matter of time before it happens. It still would have been close to a supposed catastrophe if the field had only 12 ...
