Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

Here's my guess in the modern era (post Justify)..... As handicappers, how many times have we heard the angle "third race off the layoff is often a horse's best effort" Well, if the Kentucky Derby is the target, and you've already established you have a very good horse, why not come back Feb/Mar wit...

Re: Winx

I know people get upset when somebody says this but man it sure would be nice to see Winx face outsiders instead of just Hartnell and Who Shot Thebarman. Not a doubt in my mind that the BreedersCup committee would break every entry rule and pay for the entourage's transportation expenses to have he...

Re: Winx

Winx reminds me of Zenyatta in all too many ways. Not a doubt in my mind that Zenyatta could have won the unthinkable 27 in a row without the pressure of running against the best males in the country(world). Wonder if Sherriffs had 3 others in the barn to fill out the fields? This is not meant to t...

Re: Belmont Race #10

If your vent is warranted, a major portion of it should be directed at jock Manny Franco, he's the one that has to feel if something is wrong imho.

Maybe Thinair knows something about it?

If you've never opened a DRF betting account, now would be a good time. Deposit just $50 and they'll add $150 to your account, Balance = $200. Must wager it, can't just withdraw it. There's also some connection with Xpressbet, you can't have had an account within the past 13 months. I'm almost certa...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

There's a whole host of "new-age" handicappers who will swear that weight doesn't matter, certainly not a few pounds. They need to convince the hardboots that using an apprentice is not an advantage at 5lbs off.


Riiight.

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Can a Steward be judge and jury and decide if a jockey was trying too hard to win or was trying to lose or just lost concentration or should have known better because of years of experience or couldn't have known because he's in his first year? Bonus......Should all penalties be referred to the NY o...
