Re: Taraz...

First of all, training accidents are not the same as racing breakdowns. As for track safety, few people know that EVERY YEAR, Oaklawn digs out its entire racing surface of dirt, sand and silt to the base, and replaces portions of each of the components to make it safest for racing. This is a huge p...

Re: Taraz...

So so terribly sad. 4 breakdowns since Sat at Oaklawn is very concerning. What kind of safety precautions does Oaklawn have?

Re: G3 Sam Davis 1 1-16th Today @ Tampa

The rider appeared to have a strong hold on IH until nearing the end of turn-two. Perhaps they should change tactics next out and allow him more rein. Yes I noticed IH’s head was in a peculiar fixed low position for the first part of the race. Horse did not look comfortable, then seemed to lose foc...

Re: Racing in Japan

Japan's 2018 Dirt Champion Le Vent Se Lave (JPN) (Symboli Kris S) is still aiming to make his comeback from a tendon injury. Today his connections mentioned the Kashiwa Kinen (Jpn1, May 5th) as his target. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EPKPHP4U8AAwFCF?format=jpg&name=medium Great to hear thanks Tachy...

Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

Happy for MG and Bob but did Irad really have to hit him hard when over 5 lengths ahead right at the wire? Completely unnecessary IMO.

Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

Where did you read was a possible fracture? I just read swelling? Paulick report headline mentioned possible fracture Yes I see that now. Maybe early bone bruising or deep bone fine stress fracture like what they were talking about in Dr Bramlage’s recent report . Speaking of him, I hope he is trai...

I wish we had an update on Honor AP- JS pretty vague on what his injury was- hope they have found and treated the problem.

Authentic (Into Mischief/Flawless) won the G3 Sham Stakes for the Great White One. Azul Coast (Super Saver) and Zimba Warrior (Khozan) were behind. 90 BSF despite the trouble in the stretch, lugged in, spooked from crowd, almost hit the rail all while well in front. A little bit unusual, BB has bee...

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Bouncy is fine. Aiming powerful rear-leg kicks straight at someone's head crosses the line from 'bouncy' to homicidal. :shock: That colt should have a big, red bow tied into his tail, along with a skull & crossbones caution sign. :P I agree I really thought his trainer was going to really get hurt

I like bouncy horses with some fire. Reminded me of Shared Belief.
I like Independence Hall a lot! I love the pedigree, the way he moves, and he’s very athletic.
Me too! He has a lot of personality.

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Independence Hall gets an 83 Beyer Speed Figure for Jerome victory Wednesday at Aqueduct. That's surprising after his 101 in the Nashua. His race was not as visually impressive as the Nashua- he acted up alot in paddock, was not focused in the gate, and was not pushed over a deep and tiring track i...

Independence Hall acted up before the race,

The trainer saddling him just missed being kicked in the face... scary moment. He was standing calmly then jumped up in the air, twisted and kicked out all in an instant.
