So I notice that Prat has the mount on Audible. Is Battle of Midway still being considered?
Nope. San Pasqual next... per Dorf. https://twitter.com/DRFPrivman/status/1 ... 5819025408

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

For all the desire to respect the TC as it is why does no one bring up that we have had two winners since CDI manipulated the entries? I have been thinking about this myself over the last couple of months. The fact that most of the true speed and pace has all but been eliminated via the points syst...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Was just taking a look at the pps for GP7 today (nice race) and noticed that Megahertz has the #4 Amarone, a debut runner, starting. She's by Quality Road.

Re: G1 Malibu Stakes 7F 3YO

If all stay in the main body of the field with no scratches, then I'm going with Still Having Fun. Axelrod is also a bit interesting on the cut back.

On another note, Peeptoad - I didn't interpret your post as an "outburst" in a negative way? Speaking only for myself, of course, but I thought you were passionate while respectful.

Re: What if we had a National Racing Czar?

It is post time and the horses are a quarter miles from the gate, in Florida make that a half mile. The serious betting has just begun, the 4-1 odds you thought you were getting just dropped to even money. Maybe 5 minutes after post time they load. Horses go off and half way through the race you se...

Re: In memoriam 2018

I wish they would do away with all comment sections on all news sites, whether or not racing -related. DRF did away with them awhile back and it made the articles more readable imho.

Aaaaaaaand Kulkulkan is now under consideration. Hopefully they reconsider and find an easier spot for him. I haven't paid attention enough to see if the Gulfstream track is running slow.

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

completely forgot about La Verdad, that's a great point. If anything, the lack of graded stakes often forces the best horses in the division to race against each other. Isn’t this what we want though? (Or am I misunderstanding your point? ) Oh, yeah that wasn't clear- I mean that even though Stormy...
