Re: Racing in Japan

Then again who's to say Enable can't ship to Japan for a showdown with Almond Eye? She can go to Japan rather than to the US after another go at the Arc and wait for a December race rather than the BC in November. She already did the Arc-BC Turf double so nothing to lose.

Naas, not Dundalk.
Ah of course thanks for correcting that!
Class-wise, are Naas and Dundalk similar?
I’m pretty sure they are very similar class wise. Either way with 2yos racing this early it’ll all be the same sort of quality all around the country I would think.

Re: No Whip Friday @ Santa Anita

Back to the original question: Anybody here in favor of this experiment? Yes. The jockeys chose to participate in this day-long experiment in order to acquire real data to give the CA racing officials. I'm under the impression that they aren't in love with the idea of no whips at all but, for them ...

Re: No Whip Friday @ Santa Anita

Look, there are definitely problems with horse racing across the globe. I don’t think any country has totally figured it out. But whips are definitely necessary and if you ever rode a horse in any discipline you would understand why. You need a whip in case a situation gets dangerous for example a h...

I just hope all the horses and jockeys come home safe. Not allowing jockeys to carry a whip is a dangerous situation.

An interesting ride by Mike Smith to let Roadster drop back like that.
I liked that he sat so quietly on him when everyone else was making their moves, very patient ride.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Wow quite the move from Roadster! And Mike Smith sat so quietly on him into the final turn, timed his move just right!

Game Winner and Instagrand both ran very admirable races.

Tiger Roll gave me chills today, wow! Such a brave tough horse!

The horse behind the screens I believe was Up For Review. Didn’t look good at all, he was brought down by Vintage Clouds.

Lady Pauline, 2yo half sister to Lady Aurelia, just won for fun at Keeneland in race 2! She is sired by Munnings. Looks to be a very special filly.
Wesley Ward has said she’s even more precocious than Lady Aurelia was! I can’t wait to hopefully see her at Royal Ascot!

Re: 2019 Dubai World Cup Carnival

On March 15 Baffert said Dabster was going to the DWC. Yet every article I read listing the US horses for the DWC none of them list Dabster. Did something change? Is Dabster going or not? I googled "Dabster Dubai World Cup" and the only things that come up are the articles from March 15 with Baffer...

I saw a video of LRT on Twitter and you could clearly see in it that he is in fact dark brown. Can’t find the link though, think it was one of the DRF reporters?

Re: The Rebel Parts I and II

I have a genuine question about the use of whips. I understand that a whip needs to be carried because you need it to control the horse if it begins putting itself, the rider and possibly the rest of the field in danger (e.g. coming across into the path of another horse). But does whipping a horse ...

Re: The Rebel Parts I and II

Also, I think that both Improbable and Game Winner ran very good races and didn't lose anything in defeat. A horse doesn't have to have an unblemished record to be seriously good. Plus, like others have pointed out, this is just a prep race and they both had a good learning experience out on the tra...
