2018 Hall Of Fame

2018 Hall Of Fame

Postby stark » Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:06 pm

There are 10 finalists –
jockeys Robby Albarado, Corey Nakatani, and Craig Perret;
trainers Mark Casse, John Shirreffs, and David Whiteley;
and the racehorses Blind Luck, Gio Ponti, Havre de Grace, and Heavenly Prize.

In recent years, even though voters could chose as many candidates as they felt worthy, only the top four receiving votes would get in. Voters can still choose as many as they believe deserve induction, but this year the Hall of Fame has tweaked its rules to allow any candidate who receives support from more than 50 percent of the voters to get in.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Perret and Whiteley make the ballot again. They're the Harold Stassens (perennial presidential candidate of bygone years) of the Hall of Fame ballot.

Gio and Corey for me, no other names on my hypothetical ballot.

No mention of Blind Luck?????

You guys are ......... no, I'm not going to say it. ......

She was an amazing, weedy little thing; to the tune of 10 graded stakes (6 G1), with G1s at 2,3, and 4, only off the board in her last start, and brought home 3.3 million in bacon. Oh, and she bested you know who 3 times. . .

I could be persuaded on Blind Luck and no offense to some talented professionals but it's a pretty uninspiring list.

And thanks Stark for the list of one-hit wonders. Some sharp promoter should put all those bands back together and take them on a county fair tour. They could all do one song each and it would be a full concert. And the real question, is Debby Boone still available to light up our lives?

I love Blind Luck I meant to put her in my post but I hit the send button too hastily and then left to do other things :oops:
