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

yeah, in hindsight, hearing him start defending his horse immediately after the race was pretty sus. he knew he was in big trouble, i think. i don't like defending this, but it takes an idiot to not agree now that all the slow mos and close ups are out. lol @ "since when are lanes a thing??" i need ...

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

My initial reaction was no; he was much the best. But the more I watched the replays, it became harder and harder to ignore the several horses he bothered at such a critical junction of the race. one of the stills posted in the derby thread does show his back hooves between i think WoW's front hoov...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

it's ended my enjoyment. last year's TC was all tin foil hats, this year opened up with nearly 2 dozen dead horses that santa anita wasn't real sharp about handling, the sales vet records being questioned (more than usual and some ugly allegations coming out), now this? horse racing is supposed to ...

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

The thing is, it doesn't matter if Country House was directly impacted. If Maximum Security impeded any of the other horses he had to be DQ'd, and the rest of the horses moved up in placing. then should we not have inquiries every year, since the start is chaos and we've seen loads of horses impact...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

isn't there usually a bumper cars game coming out of the gate/heading to the turn, every derby? is that analysed as well? (real question, no sarcasm)

Re: NYRA must explain This. Editorial Times Union

do something about it if you're so angry and morally above this. posting on a message board doesn't count as "doing something", by the way.

Re: mare left at sales

i'd never heard of him until now, that's insane. not sure how you can forget an entire horse (though i guess some callous ppl wouldn't be against leaving a horse that didn't sell that they don't want)

Re: No Whip Friday @ Santa Anita

i always saw whips as a safety thing first, a turbo switch second. i'm not a pro rider, but have heard many say that when a horse, who overpowers you by a lot, decides they don't want to cooperate, having a crop can be a gift from heaven when used correctly . not beating the tar out of them, but mor...

He sure looks black, but he’s registered as dark bay/brown with the Jockey Club:
Thanks, I was just going by pedigree query. Sorry!
PQ is open source, meaning anyone and everyone can edit whatever info they like. unfortunately that leads to confusion, like this case. not your fault =)

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Finalists

i read it as he was suggesting the horse may not be eligible to even make the ballot, not that he won't get voted in. of course he will be, assuming he makes the ballot. but reading the entire article, as a whole, i read it as a question of ballot eligibility, not if voters would pass him on in.
