Re: "I Like a Horse..."

Integrity taking a lot of money at Gulfstream. He looks like a major play even off the layoff and at short price, but 8-5 is too short for me.

Ouch. Not good Top Billing. Top Billing and Commissioner are better than these but the post is tough.

Re: Valenzuela banned from racetracks

What a waste of talent. Trying to test clean was probably keeping him alive. Chances are he will be dead within a year. You are an insensitive jerk with no compassion for addicts. I am giving you my fake outrage over your comment. I put the over/under at 6 months, and I would bet the under. Super t...

Depends on how badly he needs money. Get him some HGH and a few "illegal" diet pills and he will be fine. Humans have drugs just like horses.

Re: Valenzuela banned from racetracks

One of the problems with horse racing is that bans mean NOTHING. Trainers get assistants to train for them while suspended and they really call the shots. Some even are so bold they show up at morning workout. Rick Dutrow used to laugh at NY Racing. He would just appeal his suspension until he felt ...

Re: Cairo Prince or Top Billing?

You're being stupid, and you know it. You know exactly what the comment was saying: winning at 9f does not prove you are a 10f horse at three, in fact, it is often not the case. 100% accurate. Reading the original post again, I have to admit you were just saying a 9f horse is not always a 10f horse...

Just check out some of the recent horses who did well in the Remsen but ended up short on stamina when in came to the Derby distance: To Honor and Serve, Overanalyze, Old Fashioned, Toccet, Nobiz Like Shobiz, Rockport Harbor, Read the Footnotes, Saarland, etc. It's actually pretty eye opening.

Re: Cairo Prince or Top Billing?

Cairo Prince has the look of a miler to me, but you know how horse racing is...horses will prove you wrong more often than not. I also don't trust times at Gulfstream because their track records fall too often. A Miler? He was nosed out at 9f while giving weight to Honor Code, and that was as a 2yr...

The Admiral wins in 122 and change. Not sure what to think of him. A Giants Causeway with Baffert has to get some attention but he may be a miler.
