Re: Steve Coburn..Worst Person In The World List

He was perfectly right in what he was saying. No. He isn't. This is how it's always gone. Better horses than CC have lost the Belmont. And Tonalist WAS pointing towards the Derby. Coburn is just emotional. Pay him no heed. Pay him no heed? Then who do you want to "pay heed" to? He bred and raised a...

Re: Who can beat California Chrome in the Belmont?

Wicked Strong - NY hype or another Jerkins giant-killer? Ride On Curlin - Legit or Run Dusty Run type? Commanding Curve - Check above. He was closing in the Ky Derby for 2nd like RoC did in the Preakness but was it more non-threatening "illusion" than talent? Danza - He finished a respectable 3rd b...

Re: Who can beat California Chrome in the Belmont?

I saw this poll and thought it obvious that Matt just wanted to get people talking about his obsession named Untappable. Epic big fail. Very nice filly but he's wrong if he thinks the public would alter impression of the Belmont upon her entry. It would be huge news here but otherwise it would mere...

Re: Who can beat California Chrome in the Belmont?

Any of them can. Far better horses than CC have lost the Belmont. Right now I'd say your most likely winner is Wicked Strong. In your opinion, far better horses than CC have lost the Belmont. I have yet in this year seen a chink in his armor. Either have you or anyone else. He can go to the front, ...

Is Cigar ill??

Does anyone have any information on the condition of Cigar? I read on another site that he has celluilitis -- I love that horse and am worried about him. Thanks so much in advance.

Re: St Nicholas Abbey

I burst into tears when I saw the headline on BH. I'm still weepy. I had hoped he would make it through his injuries and the last report was so positive. Such a huge loss. He was so brave and fantastic. Thank you to his connections for trying and hugs to anyone that feels this loss. Ouch...this yea...

Re: Haskin Top 10 Racing Movies

Dreamer was a joke and Secretariat stunk. I thought Seabiscuit ( Hillenbrand version) was pretty good actually though not as good as her book. My fav horse racing movie is Let It Ride. I never get tired of seeing it again

Re: Breeder's Cup Friday

Maybe, somewhere in the background, those regal ears of Royal Delta's are honing in on the teeny tiny whinny of a wee baby.....and that keen nose of her's wants to nuzzle the soft scent of a foal. I think she has said to hell with this racetrack business, I'm ready for the next chapter and I do bel...

I am very happy they are looking out for the horse. I will pray he stays healthy cause I think he is surely one to watch as a three year old

Re: Mentor Cane

I first became aware of this gorgeous horse when he ran in the King's Bishop: He stood out because of how beautiful he was and he ran a really good race. His name is also unusual. When I read he broke down and was euthanized I felt heartbroken. So much potential. I feel so very sad. RIP. Condolences...
