Re: Uh, Wrona was just fired

just seems like they made this change in such an underhand sort of way - santa anita obviously had decided to give frank M the job before wrona even knew his job was in jeopardy - not a good way to treat a nice man like wrona - blindside him like that.... he had no clue - tells you a lot about the p...

Re: Uh, Wrona was just fired

you know.... I agree with you MyLute - that's probably what they are thinking - but frank M is not the best guy for that either - they want a stage performer now, not a good solid race caller? - I don't get it.... frank m's impressions were never that great - he is not funny or witty - wrona packed ...

Re: Uh, Wrona was just fired

what a crappy thing to do to wrona - they dump him and his fine work, to bring back the guy who didn't win the job originally - that just stinks in my opinion - and frank M is not even close to being as good a race caller as wrona - how do you explain this decision to wrona? shame on santa anita - I...

Re: The VENT Thread

yes, we hope you are safe and well Baroque. hope we hear from you again soon. I can smell the fires and see the sadly awful brown haze in the sky from all of the smoke and ash. its really heartbreaking when we watch our local news that shows all of the destruction these fires are causing here in our...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

just so my point wasn't lost.... the only reason I mentioned the times, etc. for Justify in the TC, was in response to the mention of Accelerate's time in the BC classic. frankly, I don't think the times of either horse should be held against either one of them. that was my intention by my comments,...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

with all due respect, tcw... I hear what you are saying - and you make some great points for sure - however, I am not sure Justify's wins in the TC had fast times either - I could be wrong (and my husband would say, I usually am!) - but I just don't recall Justify having fast closing splits or fast ...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

I would love to see Accelerate win horse of the year - the award says it.... horse of the YEAR - not the horse of 4 months. and I would like to see owners rewarded for keeping their RACE horse RACING past the age of 3 - plus, that whole Belmont/Audible/questionable jock rides situation still leaves ...

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

that was a superb race by two really outstanding female horses - kudos to Magical - ran her heart out - but what can you say about the stunning Enable.... she is glorious - - my husband said he would love if she won HOY - well she is certainly something special that's for certain!!

good for Bravazo and very happy for City of Light!!


I loved seeing cruiser paired up with Harley too - two super handsome horses.

feel bad for sadler - maybe accelerate will come thru for him later.

I am glad I get TVG too - but its just absurd that NBC is not showing all of the BC races.

Re: Breeders’ Cup News & Notes- 2018

my gosh I thought Audible looked stunning before his race this morning - nice win in his comeback - such a shame he 'missed' the Belmont - will be fun to watch him run next year - not a fan of his owners, but for the horse's sake... I hope he does really well.

yes just read about Code of Honor - such a shame - really liked this horse in the race today - feel so bad for Shug - but as usual, he handles everything with such tremendous class.

would love to see Bravazo win this race. or giant expectations. but it would be a surprise to me if anyone other than cruiser won. he has just looked too good in his past races.
