Re: Royal Ascot 2019

The Coventry goes to Arizona, a big, handsome son of No Nay Never. I think I heard this was Aiden O'Brien's 9th victory in this race. The dark brown colt seemed a little lazy in the first half of the race, but came with a strong charge in the last furlong. Love the fact that he runs in what looks l...

Re: Turkish Horse Racing

I've noticed that the Turkish Jockey Club streams its races live every day on YouTube. It's a full TVG-like presentation, but of course, the commentary is all in Turkish. Odds are displayed, too, which surprises me since Turkey is a Muslim country and gambling is usually frowned upon in those places.

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

I like it. Simple. One word. His dam's name was Violent Beauty. If a champion horse can be named Bonecrusher (another name I love) then Violence ain't nothin'. A little edgier name can be cool. One-word names are the best. When I see one in the PPs, I always check the pedigree to see if I can figur...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

That's fair but they are not a silent organization. They have tremendous sway and use social media in ways racing does not. If racing does comply with measures going forward I worry what it'll mean. Do you really think racing could be fully banned? It accounts for such a tremendous amount of money ...

Re: Portland Meadows - R.I.P.

As I prepare for a final goodbye to Suffolk Downs -- final live card on June 30, it was announced last week -- I say farewell to Portland Meadows. I doubt the Oregon fair circuit can survive without a full-time track, and the Oregon breeding industry probably breathes its last, too. I, too, could n...

Re: Let It Ride

I don't know if any of you remember the movie Let It Ride with Richard Dreyfuss. I live in upstate New York and this movie is on WBPN Channel 14 at 8 p.m. (Binghamton Channel). I haven't seen this movie in years but it is so funny. Hope some of you get a chance to watch it. It is to racing what "Sl...

Good old Slim Shadey (GB) ran his 79th race today at Gulfstream and finished second.

He’s in the Mike Maker barn.
Remember when everyone here was so afraid that David Jacobson was going to run him into the ground?

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Finalists

So does Perret get into the HOF in a walkover or can their be an HOF class with no jockeys? He and Whiteley have been on the ballot year after year after year since God knows when. Is there a maximum at which time they'll be dropped from future consideration? If I had a ballot, there'd be only two n...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Wait, so thoroughbreds can run in QH and TB races? Yes, the races are usually 870 yards. Los Alamitos cards them quite often and has for years. One of my OTTB’s, Anniversary Year, ran in a couple of them in the early 2000’s. Turf Paradise occasionally cards races at 1,000 yards for "thoroughbreds, ...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

I understand the sentiment but the names "Touched By Autism", "Myostis Mystique", etc just don't sound right to me. I don't care for breeders who saddle all their horses with similar names. There are bunches of horses named Starship this and Kitten that in the entries. Not as bad as harness racing'...
