Re: Santa Anita 2019

I thought the cushion track was giving rise a lot soft tissue injuries or is this just a case of revisionist memory To my memory it was a definitely a popular talking point back when it was at Santa Anita, although I'm not sure any studies were done and I don't know if similar concerns exist at cur...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Along with Hogy , another old millionaire running this weekend is 11yo Slim Shadey , seeing if he can "right the ship" at Gulfstream in a claiming race.

Solid training begets winners, but this is akin to being the really smart kid whose parents couldn't afford an SAT tutor vs. the kid wh...

Kid Cantina was pulled up in trouble on the backstretch.

I'm a little bit shocked that the 72 votes cast here were so wrong, 49/23 in favor of Accelerate.
