Re: Ramsey + Royal Ascot = Angry

While I was reading the whole thing (yes, I did go read the article...IDK why), I was both really amused and cringing from second hand embarrassment the entire time. :lol: :? :roll:

Re: rachel vs zenyatta, r2, ECLIPSE FIGHT

As I said, I'm only going by what her trainer, John Shirreffs, said. He said she didn't like them. Believing him or not is up to you. I can't see any reason to believe that. He had the mare of a lifetime, and he wasn't packing his bags to take her to Saratoga so she could run on her preferred surfa...

Re: rachel vs zenyatta, r2, ECLIPSE FIGHT

Also I don't know why you are using 'she was running against dirt horses who didn't like synth' thing as a mark against her, when she is in that group herself. She didn't like synth, her best races were on dirt. I never understood this "she didn't like synth" thing when she clearly had no issues ru...

Re: rachel vs zenyatta, r2, ECLIPSE FIGHT

I don't know if I'd agree that running on synth helped her considering she didn't like it. She hated Del Mar's track, wouldn't even train on it. I don't even think it's debatable that the synth helped her. First, during this brief excursion into the badly-thought-out experiment of synthetics, she e...

Re: rachel vs zenyatta, r2, ECLIPSE FIGHT

I think they were more greedy until recently regarding induction. 1 horse per year per era, something like that. And since they were inducting a lot of horses before their existence, I can see how Riva could've been overshadowed for a long time. I will always have an asterisk beside Zenyatta becaus...

Re: rachel vs zenyatta, r2, ECLIPSE FIGHT

They'll both get in first try. If one of them doesn't, I'll be incredibly surprised. Much as I loved English Channel and Kona Gold, no way do they deserve to get in before Rachel and Zenyatta. That said, I hope both English Channel and Kona Gold do make it in someday. Both were personal favorites of...

Re: American Pharoah

He did get his way on the lead in the Classic, but what did you expect the others to do once the speed horses dropped out? Push their own mounts to be at his throat latch the entire time just to make sure he wasn't alone up there? They were basically in a lose-lose situation. Go with him and you cou...

Re: RunHappy

Looking back at what she said on twitter...it doesn't seem that bad. She made a grand total of four tweets about it. The worst she said was she argued with the racing manager/now trainer this morning over Runhappy jogging on the track due to heat in his ankle and was let go. The rest were just gener...

Re: RunHappy

ETA: Also hope he goes to a real trainer, doesn't stay with a racing manager. He's a good animal. They can afford a top-class California trainer, if that's the desire. Agreed. It doesn't make sense to take him from Maria Borell and put him back with Laura Wohlers. This whole thing is weird. Borell ...

Re: Day 2 BC broadcast follow along and discuss

Aren't rabbits on turf a bit different than the ones on dirt? On turf they are there more to give their stablemate a target, while on dirt they tend to be there to soften up the frontrunner for their stablemate...right? Or do I have it completely wrong? :? Yes. Actually they are not called rabbits ...
