Re: Asmussen handed 30 day suspension

https://www.paulickreport.com/news/the-biz/khrc-asmussen-suspended-30-days-for-pair-of-acepromazine-overages/ I firmly believe that there is NO reason a horse should need to be ridden with the assistance of medications like Ace..if you need to dose your horse with Ace in order to ride it successful...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Asmussen is appealing the ruling, saying he had the ace given way outside of recommended timeframes, and that the cutoff levels were reflective of IV use, not oral, which is how most backstretch vets use it, and that the residual metabolites were inert and had no effect on race day. He is taking a s...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Steve Asmussen given small fine and 30 d suspension for 2 overages of the sedative and muscle relaxer acepromazine. So a slap on the wrist, Scott takes over and Steve gets a nice Christmas vacation.

Tiz the Law a close third to Silver Prospector after a tough inside bottled up trip and stumbling start in the Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill. May not have liked sloppy track and all of that dirt in his face and never looked comfortable. Jockey also thought he became a bit intimidated when in ti...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Performer very impressive in Discovery today at Aqueduct for Shug. Stepped up to stakes company and 2 turns for the first time and battled gamely with Tax down the stretch before prevailing late. Beautiful chestnut colt really reminds me of same connection’s Easy Goer . Will be put away until sprin...

Midcourt looked like Star in the making taking Native Diver by over 5 lengths for John Shirreffs and Victor Espinoza. Roadster a dull last in scratch-reduced 4 horse field.

Apparently Msawish is sold and no longer at Taylor Made according to a person on FB. Anyone verify?
That would take them from 5 stallions to 3 in less than a week. Yikes.
Not sure Farm has truly recovered from losing UBS awhile back

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Independence Hall was super impressive, receiving a 101 Beyer in winning the Nashua. Other than ducking out a bit in the stretch, he looked great as he closed the final 1/4-mile in 24 and 2. He also appears to be long in body and has Seattle Slew both top and bottom in his pedigree. The sky's the l...

So few good match ups anymore. Everyone so concerned about protecting a horse’s record for breeding that they race them where it’s easiest.

Ok I googled him and found lots of stuff about him being a vwell-know vet to well- known horses and trainers including Pletcher, and having a range of his own joint supplements. Is there more?

Re: 2019 BC Classic

Just goes to show you can never truly tell who will develop into a big runner and who won't. Vino Rosso's has-had a lot of fans (mostly due to dad) but I'm not sure anyone really expected him to win the Classic one day. Well, before his JCGC run at least. Matt Shiffman must feel vindicated. Also I ...

Re: 2019 BC Classic

Wish Vino would race on one more year- just coming into his own. With all of those big money races next year he could have a Gun Runner- type campaign and go for HOY. Curlins improve with age- sad we will not get to see this with Vino.

One horse flipped and fell, 2 riders down shortly after break. Other horse may have stepped on rider, continued and “ won” race. Any updates on fallen horse and 2 downed riders? Thanks

Re: 2019 BC Juvenile

Awful stumble for Dennis' Moment, hope he comes out of it ok. Eight Rings just ran completely flat, that underwhelming workout he had before this race proved to be a sign that he wasn't going to run well, no excuses today. Storm the Court battled impressively, fending them off one by one! Totally a...
