Why get a journalist to explain rather than a veterinary pharmacologist or toxicologist?

Street Band <3 She's really come along. NEVER underestimate a Larry Jones filly anyway.......he is quite good with fillies. And as I said earlier, I love sophie doyle so I was happy to see this win. It was the only thing I got right all day. In the Cotillion, I can't bet BOTH favorites, as that off...

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

I've decided to take a break from U.S. racing after all this. Over the pond you can "depend" on horses that are stayers to BE stayers.....Stradivarius, etc. They can actually repeat themselves. I believe it's because they are racing cleaner, recuperate better, and have more patient training regimes....

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

Coupled with the relatively recent banning of thyroxine, it gives the impression that a lot of these regulations are far more reactive than proactive. I did not know thryroxine was on the banned list. Is it even banned for horses DIAGNOSED with a thyroid disorder who are being treated for such----i...

. Most who voiced an opinion had their mind up well ahead of time, in fact they're already ready for a public hanging the next time backstretch news is reported. Are you talking about voiced opinions HERE? Many of the posts, esp. by Tessa, were very indepth and involved far more critical thinking t...

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

So back to thoughts about the races. The PA derby was orig. supposed to be big showdown match race between WoW and Max, and that isnt' happening anymore. Looks like Mr. Money will be the "wise guy horse" based on what I see friends talking about. I never wager the wise guy horse to win a race. Right...

What say you? About the poll itself, or are you asking for opinions.......if the latter, everyone pretty much already gave their opinions and thoughts about the irregularities that they perceive in this situation. As for the poll, if you want the right answers, you have to ask the right questions. ...

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

and to add to what Tessa said, knowing how the other horses tested is something we need to know. As has been brought up, a contamination level as high as Justify had........that would have called for a broad announcement to each and every horseman and barn at SA.......to not do so showed a complete ...

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

And while I suppose people can decry the messenger as much as they want, three things remain absolute truths that have not been disputed by any party involved: 1. Baffert has a history of giving horses potentially harmful substances for non-veterinary reasons. 2. Justify tested well above the legal...

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

severe case of colic and a displacement of the large colon........sounds pretty serious. I'm glad they got him to veterinarian, this can kill a horse.

He has always seemed like a rather fragile one. Of course, a lot of them are.

Baffert could go to Keeneland and buy horses and he and Jill race them, but he’s too smart for that.

Re: Belmont

I'm "afraid" to look at Belmont. After how I was cluelss for the entire Sar meet......I played on paper and still couldn't hit side of a barn.
It was almost astonishing how I couldn't hit ANY winners practically. I'm not that good to begin with, but I'm not as bad as my ROI for that meet.

Omaha Beach sidelined again with a virus. Will miss Shared Belief stakes. Wonder if better just to give him the rest of the year off at this point and try again next year.

Grant me one wish......and that would be that folks would give up on the knee jerk reaction to every problem that faces the industry, that being a National Governing body would prevent/resolve important issues. Horse racing ain't like the NFL or MLB or the UCI and any comparisons/wish lists are pie...

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

I hope Baffert is hiring a good PR firm. It doesn’t matter how innocent he is. His reputation could take a serious hit with things like this. He’s the face of the sport and already I’ve had a few non-racing fan acquaintances ask me about this. So you're saying Baffert should use PR (otherwise known...

If Joe Drape wants to go after Baffert like the Cycling Council did Lance Armstrong, more power to him. . Wow, Curtis ........

Re: Across the pond

So Hartnell runs his 30th G1 (Makybe Diva Stakes ) and a big longshot (Gatting) wins (by Hard Spun out of Stubborn)

Anyone have articles ---- its certainly been under-reported

I think Hartnell got 4th?
