Re: Justify

I never thought I would say this, but I am filled to my craw with talk about Justify. He's an enigma - always was and always will be. I hope he does well as a stallion. Maybe then people will take him seriously.

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Victor suffered a C3 fracture. So did I. A vertebroplasty fixed that sucker, and I was good to go the next day. Thank you Catalina.

Re: Justify

I honestly don't care how horses get judged by others. Justify could rank as the worst Triple Crown winner and it wouldn't bother me. I'll only care and remember the few wonderful memories he brought me. Breeding money will always prevent young colts from ever reaching true greatness of yesteryear.[...

Re: Saratoga 2018

I am going to get to see Monomoy Girl on Sunday, so that's exciting. When BdO gets to TOGA, I'll wander by Steve's barn and see if I can get some photos of hm. I'll bring a box of donuts and wear my Gun Runner shirt and hat.

Life is good. 'nuff said, enjoy! "nuff said"???? OH, I'm not allowed to say anything more about my time in TOGA? OK - didn't mean to bore you. Just thought some people would be interested in the different prices for seat tickets. Used to be Travers was a different price. Then Whitney became a diffe...

Re: Dutrow Request to Amend License Revocation Denied

The "board" wanted to show racing fans that they meant business cleaning up the sport. Yeah, sure. They picked the softest target and let it drop from there. I'd like to know how a suggested 90 day suspension morphed its way into 10 years.

Re: July 15 is... "National I Love Horses Day"

I'm a fan of so many - coming on to them early in their careers -Curlin, Big Brown, Rachel, Wise Dan, Gun Runner, and Justify. I love every single one of them, but my heart horse is Wise Dan. Can't rightly explain it. Just a nice, nice boy with a strong work ethic who wanted to win. After seeing him...

Thanks for the good wishes. Health has been wonky lately, but somehow it improves a few days after I get here. Not sure what it is.
