Re: Black Thoroughbreds

Did you ever find the name? I did try, but came up empty, sorry. Years later for a possible answer, but I think that horse at Marquis Downs may have been "Fourth of Gold" -- Touch Gold x Turkey n' the Straw--Farma Way. His last race was 2011 at Marquis Downs. Wasn't fast there, or several years pri...

Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale

I recall forum members eye-rolling at Jim McIngvale a little, back in the Runhappy crazy days. Here's what he's doing today to assist his community through Covid-19.

I’m pretty sure Victoria was the old admin here so I’m afraid it might be real. As author of the thread, I’m technically allowed to lock it but I can’t remove or edit posts and there’s no point locking the thread when the damage has already been done.

Re: Kentucky Derby and the Coronavirus

Something for potential Derby visitors ( and maybe anyone going to a large event ) to consider is that COVID-19 is shed fecally, as well as orally. I know it's not a pleasant thought, but the air in crowded public restrooms is also going to be crowded with effluent that has been atomized from all t...

Re: FBI raid at Calder

If I may offer some advice here -- and I am speaking from experience -- a few of you need to go back and edit your posts. You're naming people who haven't been mentioned in the indictment and making accusations that amount to defamation. Any and all of them may well be guilty of any number of violat...

That looks like a quality field...which IMHO is unfortunate. Saudi Arabia doesn't deserve it.
Too bad the jocks wouldn't get away with wearing armbands that say 'Remember Jamal Kashoggi.' :evil:
Take it to a non-racing thread.

I also find it humorous that at the same time they are calling him out for not stamping his foals, they are also criticizing him for giving them his conformation.
If true, it's a legitimate criticism. These two things are not mutually exclusive.

Re: Santa Anita 2020

You are absolutely 100% correct along with Tessa who started her spreadsheet right here classifying each tragedy. Problem is, it's a lot like the Middle East wars and Global Warming, documenting the problems that are fixable turn out to be a little more difficult than originally thought to be. Put ...

Cosmic Cat was pulled up with an obvious front injury in the feature R8 at Fair Grounds today (MSW for 2 year olds). Don't expect to hear anything, but thought I'd mention it here.

Re: Santa Anita 2020

Costs them a lot less than replacing the asbestos-filled firetraps many of them have to live in. They can "asbestos-filled" or they can be "firetraps", but they can't be both. Why can’t it be both? With asbestos- filled being a descriptor for firetrap? Asbestos is the most effective fireproofing ma...

Santa Anita will serve Christmas Eve dinner to 350 backstretch workers and their families, and there will be Santa, music, decorations and presents for the children.
