Re: In Memoriam 2019

I was very sad and sorry to read of the passing of the great Peppers Pride - from that miserable horrible laminitis - just awful - this mare is and always will be a champ in my eyes - she went out there to compete every time - no matter who you are racing against, that is quite admirable - had nothi...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I hear what you are saying, Som - I have read or heard the same sentiment from a lot of different places. I think for me, because of the hiding of it, the positive bothers me even more. I realize mistakes happen. but since they hid this info and did a lot of behind closed doors stuff in this situati...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I read that info that John Cherwa put out this morning too - he said those were the two most recent - the CHRB recently said there were 6 other horses besides Justify who tested positive for that stuff - but they did not name the horses/trainers - Jay Privman in his local SoCal radio show this morni...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

oh egads is that true? I had not heard that Omaha was done after this year - I was hoping he would still race again as a 4 year old - dreaming I guess.

djnorth.... I am glad you asked that question - I have been wondering about the same thing - I have not seen any other horses or trainers named - yet anyway.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

very happy to hear that Julien Leparoux will ride Omaha Beach in the Ack Ack on the 28th - a very sweet horse gets a very sweet rider - Julien is one of the sweetest nicest riders out there - horse and rider will make a lovely team - cannot wait to see Omaha on the track again - wishing them both th...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

exactly.... why did the CHRB hide this info and do the closed door meeting crap - if there was nothing wrong, or out of the ordinary - or if this was totally done above board - then this info should have been available and put out there well over a year ago - but no, that is not what happened.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

yes I too hope that a lawsuit is filed here in this case - I do not want this thing to be pushed to the side and forgotten - I want to see the CHRB and Baffert investigated - this has been a long time in coming in my opinion. and no matter what Drape may or may not have done in the past - and what p...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

if he had the drug in his system, should he have been DQ'd from winning the santa anita derby then? and if he was DQ'd from the santa anita derby, did he have enough points without that win to make it into the KY Derby field? are there any horses in California who tested positive for this drug, and ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

so it got into the horse's feed somehow (according to the baff camp) - from bad straw - - baff has such a big barn with so many horses, if it did come from bad straw, wouldn't more of his horses have ingested it also. seems odd to me. only this one horse. I must be missing something.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

by the way, Justify seemed to have a lot of big time owners buying in on the horse - right before the KY Derby - did they all know about this failed drug test?


the only one I feel sorry for in this whole thing, is Justify - that poor horse - it really just makes me sick for him.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

months ago, maybe even longer than that.... I heard someone had written a book about baffert - so I kept waiting to hear when it was going to come out - but never did - anyone know anything about that? just curious if there was something in the book that baff didn't like and he got the whole thing s...

Re: Travers 2019

Mucho did look like he got squeezed - there was contact between him and Tacitus - would love to see the head on of that stretch run - thought Mucho ran really well though - congrats to Shug and Code of Honor.

Re: Uh, Wrona was just fired

yeah Ed B is just so great - I think he was going to retire last year - but somehow got talked into staying around another year - so I am sure he is ready to go now - will miss him for sure - but so very happy for Wrona! so glad he is back in SoCal (really wish he was still at Santa Anita though).

Re: Big Saturday @ The Spa

how about Omaha Beach - if he wins all of his races the rest of this year - including the BC classic.

would love to see it happen!!
