I read Cigar Mile too.
Edit: I meant the Malibu not the Cigar Mile... He said there wasn't a point in running in the Cigar Mile when the Malibu is at Santa Anita.

I'm glad to read that. IIRC, this year's Sprint may have a formidable field, and Omaha Beach could find the Dirt Mile a softer spot to step up in distance.

Not if Catalina Cruiser goes to the Mile, but i guess it's easier to face him than Mitole, Imperial Hint, etc.

Soon after I wrote the above post, I read an article that listed some of the horses OB may face in the Dirt Mile...and yeah, there are a few "formidable" ones. :P :lol:
Not only Catalina Cruiser, but apparently Mitole is also entered. Or maybe he's cross-entered for the Sprint as well?

Since Mitole also going to Spendthrift they may want to keep them separated.

So we are supposed to view Hollendorfer as an enemy?

What was it that he did wrong?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

???
Did I miss something?
The Stronach Group arbitrarily decided to ban him because 4 of his horses broke down at SA this year. How quick they were to wash themselves of any responsibility regarding track safety.

Because Hollendorfer is the only trainer to have had a horse breakdown this year (or ever)? Seemed more like a scapegoat to me.

This thing with Hollendorfer sure has been strange. But he looks like a scapegoat to me as well.

Okay, I read the article and still don't know what he did wrong.
Do you?
