Re: 2019 BC Classic

No way to know, is there. Lack of such knowledge does not change the overall point, does it. Actually, yes it does. A specific horse has been named. Your admitted "lack of such knowledge" renders your commentary little more than worthless bloviating (at best) and at worst, an ugly smear of the hors...

Re: 2019 BC Classic

Drugs; steroids; stuff done to yearlings to prime them for sales; excessive inbreeding; breeding only for the sales fashion of the day Did any of these apply to Mongolian Groom, a homebred by (relatively speaking) nothing out of nothing? No way to know, is there. Lack of such knowledge does not cha...

Gosh, life was much simpler when a few words from Sol Kumin caused your panties to get all bunched up, little did you know what storyline was ahead and something actually worth getting upset about.

I've been watching the SA feed on RTN (tv is occupied with football). They spent 10 minutes with the camera on Code of Honor and he looks unhappy. (And half the size of Vino Rosso.) Elate's as cool as a cuke.

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

Actually you seem offended by her enthusiasm. I’m not certain stating that “execution is hard” is the best choice of phrasing in this instance. However, I get the point but then anything worth doing is hard. I don't care about her enthusiasm. I do care that blabbering utopians don't sign an industr...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I'm honestly finding it impossible to understand why any racing fan would be vehemently offended by the suggestion that, with hard work, we can one day minimize or eliminate deaths within the sport. No racing fan has said anything of the sort. You've been indulging in a fictional debate of your own...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

If you feel powerless, Katewerk, then just say that. ;) Well, I didn't say that. And, if that is truly the case, then it really is best that you step aside and let those who feel more capable solve the bigger problems. Well it's not the case, as noted above. But, as you are in the business of telli...

Actually, she already has as referenced above. And although I agree that ZERO deaths may be overly optimistic (as ALL deaths are not a potential function of the hypothesized cause or other preventable causes if addressed), the fact that a cluster of the deaths may be eliminated/mitigated seems like...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

It's honestly disturbing that so many of you are seemingly more upset by the media coverage of the deaths than the deaths themselves. <snip> If you actually want this sport to exist past the next decade, quit whining and start holding people in the industry accountable. THIS. Sounds pretty easy, bu...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

Research has continuously shown that these deaths are preventable . This means we can get to zero deaths if we stop throwing our own pity party and actually concentrate on looking at the problem and finding a solution. GQ Covergirl was unraced at two, whereas Emtech made only one start late into hi...
