Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Laughing Fox, would be a wonderful horse to win the Preakness - love that name too - something happy - racing needs some happy.

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

I felt badly for that woman holding that huge bouquet of roses - when I saw that picture - seems sort of pathetic to give them to her.... and then what? someone came over to take them away from her? awkward. handled very badly. humiliating for that woman who had nothing to do with the outcome. how m...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

yeah I wish someone would tell us what Jason Servis has done wrong - because I have no clue either - but I read people make comments about him like he is a cheater - never heard anything about this before - so I am curious myself.

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

I have a lot of respect for the opinions of Richard Migliore - and he said this morning on the Belmont racing show, that he did not agree with the stewards yesterday. he said the Derby is always a roughly run race and the stewards have always let things go - he said MS was much the best on the day a...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I guess his point was that everyone is paying such close attention to what MS did in that final turn, it might be worth checking out the jocks on WoW and CH in that whole situation too. (and I am trying to remember if he mentioned Court - but I know he seemed to have scrutinized the rides on WoW and...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

maybe Casse knew his jock might not be so squeaky clean in this incident - just heard Nick Hines on the radio give some very good points of view on the rides of both Prat and Tyler G - perhaps both of them played a part in this whole thing after all - Hines pointed out some interesting stuff about t...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

and not sure who the comment was directed to but, I had zero money on the races yesterday - not one dime on any race. frankly, with Omaha Beach out, I really didn't care who won as long as it wasn't baffert.

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

and that's it Blame.... the decision yesterday was totally illogical if you take into account what they allow to go on every year in that first turn - or at the start for that matter - truly they just showed what a bunch of hypocrites the stewards are - and how hypocritical this game is in general.

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

poor Maximum Security - he looked totally spent yesterday after the race - his head was hanging so low when they kept walking him around in circles as they were waiting for the stewards - I felt so bad for him - he gave it all he had in that race yesterday - I would not be surprised if he skipped th...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

people keep talking about what catastrophe could have occurred if horses went down in the final turn yesterday and how racing dodged a bullet. well hello, this happens every year (almost) in the first turn of the Derby's - and yes, bad stuff could really happen there too - so what is the difference?...

has there ever been rulings like that in racing? I can't say I can think of any that's for sure.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

just heard something interesting on local SoCal TB radio show - someone wondering if maybe they could have left the winning horse up in the Derby and just penalize the jock for the ride. (their point being, it seemed wrong to give the win to the second place horse who wasn't bothered that much and w...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

I just hope horse racing continues with the law that was laid down yesterday in the Derby. and I mean in all races and at every point of those races. but you know that is not going to happen. and how about 'race riding' -- heard mike smith talk about it in the past like 'hey just put your big boy pa...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

well horse racing, and most notably, the Kentucky Derby WILL be a joke officially if from now on, they don't start DQ'ing horses who cause all that bumping and trouble at the start of races, or in the first turn (where a lot of that stuff happens in the Derby), or towards the end of the races. they ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

just curious, could Mott have asked Prat to claim foul? I don't know, can trainers do that? I feel really badly for Maximum Security - he looked so pathetic with his head hanging so low while they kept walking him around in circles right after the race. poor horse. he looked totally spent and exhaus...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

today, we don't have a horse who WON the Kentucky Derby. we have a horse who was GIVEN the Kentucky Derby.

if they want to start calling stuff now in the Derby, then how about calling fouls on all the crap that happens in the first turn.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

guys, on the walkover just now, Todd Pletcher said he was surprised they harrowed the track - he seemed a bit, maybe concerned or disappointed - what do you think he meant? that it will play now to closers? or the other way around? I didn't understand what he was getting at.....

Re: Derby Day Undercard

ah thanks Som! forgot about Nyquist - shame on me.
