Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

The similarities between you and Todd Shrupp really are endless, must be in the job DNA. Nope. There's just no comparison, IMHO. I've never seen or heard Thinair constantly and loudly bluster, rudely talk over/yell down fellow hosts, and generally make being frat-boy obnoxious his MO. IIRC, Andy do...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

I'll have to find my post where I suggested tossing Fahan Mura was genius. I can't recall it, but you seem to know where it is. What poster was hoping for her? There are two other fillies in the race that actually have a chance....right? The beauty of racing, Stark, is that there is something for a...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Fahan Mura is a silly entrant, though I guess her speed helps some of the others. She's basically a rabbit for everyone. I wonder what she paid to run. Probably low five figures. Her only chance is to be ignored and be allowed to walk the dog. She’s a nice story but I’m not seeing it. Of much more ...

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Don't like that he had a splint and not a suspensory? Why? Not sure if I'm a fan of bringing a 9 year old back to training. He was in training last year until the problem arose so it’s not like he’s been turned out for two years. Also, D’Amato is good with older geldings, he kept Obviously going fo...

Re: Great read - food for thought: Blame the Breeder

however, without claiming races, the stories of "we claimed the horse to save it" might go away, and more horses may be at risk - what horse was it that was recently claimed and retired, but the owner refused to sell and wanted to keep racing? now give them the option to keep running in low tier ra...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

If Frankel entered something that looked to be a worthy (as in deserved) 20-1, you went to the bank of choice, withdrew everything of yours, and hit the windows. If he had something else in the same race, try artistic combos, higher price on top. I supported myself and a husband that could lose a b...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Soli cost $270 and has banked $760 albeit with only one trip to the winners circle. I can think of worse things to test my patience. So all on the Zayats then? Could be, Dabster who went for 1M and has earned 347K with several trips to the winner’s circle but he’s been much more conservatively plac...

Solomini? ;) Can you bet in Vegas or online as to whether he'll change leads? Ahhh yes, for every tenet there's an exception or two like the maiden winner Solomini,, but the good news is that he was 60-1 in that Derby vs. the two 7-1 shots Audible and Mendy from the aforementioned barns.

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Bonus question answer, based on recent history, probably Bobby. We may see Baffert with a few more possibly good Juddmonte youngsters, or they may try the water at another barn or 2. I don't see them going with anything not based in Los Angeles on the west coast, though. The fact the Frankel made t...

The Great White One is doing exactly as I would do, which probably means he should do something else entirely.😉 The great trainers of our time, Lukas and Pletcher to name a couple, seem to take more chances, throw 'em to the wolves, enter no-hopers, whatever you want to call it, but I just don't se...

I don’t know if he’s much of a handicapper but he did continually call the mare Allaboutthatbass after the fish as opposed to the music signature in a race last June. A huge group in the 5th floor of the grandstand turned towards the speaker and yelled “Bass” (base), in unison. I suppose it can be s...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

I vaguely recall Mr. Wrona having some substantial salary demands a while back, maybe LoneStar, so that's possible that his agent got a little greedy. It will be good to hear him on the grass at Kentucky Downs if not sooner. As for FrankM, I think you'll see more involvement in wagering info than w...

Re: 2019 derby prep races.

It was discontinued effective last year. Its always interesting to see how races fall in and out of favor. If that race wasn’t run on what is essentially a bullring, it would probably still be around. When CDI restructured the points a couple of years ago, the race was doomed. Most top trainers jus...
