Re: Three-year-olds of 2014

His work time means nothing, just how he came out of it. Just a gentle counterpoint -- if work times mean nothing, why has the Daily Racing Form been in the business of publishing such information for the past 120 years? Past performances and works are their bread and butter. They have to for the i...

Re: Three-year-olds of 2014

Mexikoma worked five furlongs today in 1:00 3/5. His works have been earning rave reviews and he will be pointing towards an allowance at Gulfstream this month. He looks ready to go! Point of comparison: In his first work since mid-January, Honor Code worked 3F in :35.66 this morning at Gulfstream ...

Rydilluc work this morning. 1:22 flat for 7f on turf?

Has anyone ever seen a horse work 7f in 122 on the turf? I checked and apparently he did indeed work that fast. Did anyone see how this happened or know if the time is incorrect? I know they plan on running him in 10 days but that is ridiculous for a horse that has not raced in months. Rydilluc (KY)...

Re: 2014 Winter Olympics - Sochi, Russia

I guess its like most things where people like watching others who are extrmely talented with their craft. Ever watch darts? The stands are packed To each his own. Some would argue horse racing is boring. Others love it. The only sport I do not get is speed walking. What is the point? We have runni...

Re: Female involvement and this sport

I suppose I could just invite one out there some day as a sort of experiment, but what if she winds up getting hit on or seeing drunks urinating? Do I gamble with a friendship/relationship the way I gamble on a maiden claimer? But what do I know. My vagina precludes me from having any insight into ...

What the heck is a math major, someone who wants to teach math? Useless. If you can major in math you should be getting a real degree in economics or engineering. Math major. Almost as useless as liberal arts.

Re: Copenhagen Zoo kills healthy young giraffe

No animal's behavior threatens our shared ecosystem quite like humans. If this is what evolved means. If it's fair to judge other animals using a human construct. And it's not what evolved means. A well-evolved creature fits its niche. We outgrew ours and took everybody else's, and we're going to p...

Re: Female involvement and this sport

As a young person (17) interested in racing since I was 12, I must say I barely see any support for racing amongst my generation. In fact, I feel pressurised to keep quiet about my passion for horse racing because as soon as I mention it, people judge me in the worst possible ways. 'Seriously?! How...

Re: Three-year-olds of 2014

It's mid-February. As sad as I am about it, the odds of either Honor Code or Shared Belief making the Derby are getting longer by the day. Both have not worked in weeks -- Shared Belief in over a month and Honor Code in going on four weeks. Although it varies from horse to horse and trainer to trai...
