Re: Dubai-bound 2014

So what does withdrawing the objection have to do with the original inquiry?
Don't think there should have been a change but this is ridiculous.

Re: Saratoga - significant increase in cost

Thanks for the explanation. Assuming they must have been giving away some neet stuff there. Best thing back in the MD days was the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie at Laural, though many couldn't be bothered with them. Staggered home with 7 once, which my track pals gave me. They were great big pies and act...

Re: PETA Accuses Two Trainers of Cruelty to Horses

Might one be cynical enough to venture a guess that Mr. Phipps wasn't born yesterday and that he could just possibly have had the slightest glimmer of an idea that this is nothing new under the sun?

Might one?

Re: Saratoga - significant increase in cost

Also don't know what a "spinner" is.

Quite some time back (say 25 years) going to Laural for Pimlico/Preakness day they upped the admission price from the usual $3 to $9, and I witnessed a number of folks turning away in disgust.

That's no way to gain fans, though it's a damn good way to lose them.

Re: Dubai-bound 2014

Well, isn't it safe to say the majority of us are "unfamiliar with most of these entrants" each and every year? If that's your benchmark for interest in this then fine, but it's still one of the most potentially rewarding betting cards extant for those willing to dig deep and do the necessary work. ...

Re: Haskin Top 10 Racing Movies

May have missed it on this thread, but a guilty pleasure is "The Longshot" with Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. Mostly because the low rent types in the film were pretty damn close to the sort I used to hang out with at the track back in the long ago day. Probably not top 10, but if yer an indulgent o...

Well, I've done all I can. Alive to the P3 but most likely need Flat Out to win to show a profit on the day unless a super goes big.

Good luck to y'all.
