Re: Kentucky Derby and the Coronavirus

Looking into next year, do farms even bother retiring and standing the "top" sound 3 year olds of 2020? Or just give them another year to prove themselves and earn some more $$. I have to imagine that while the Coolmores and Darleys of the world are unscathed, there's plenty of lower-mid level bree...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Candid shot of Take Charge Indy by Housatonic back in the states. Anybody see any issues with him? Obviously you can't tell from a photo but a user on here was claiming he was lame and did not need to be mounting mares and they would never breed to him. was that regarding a pic of him in the breedi...

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

I think we disagree about Mott - a jockey knows when he's been interfered with and when he's just hoping - the jockey wasn't even 'hoping', he claimed foul because the trainer told him to. I don't recall seeing trainers instructing jockeys to claim foul when it wasn't their horse interfered with wi...

Re: Bravazos ambitious 2020 campaign

Maybe the owners just want to experience the Dubai hoopla? As long as Bravazo has no health issue, why not. Even if he finished 4th he gets a nice sum. Also: Lukas never shies away to run his horses in tough spots. Mr. Z anyone? Guess Calumet didn't learn with Skyring at 70-1 at the Shadwell Mile t...

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

"Show me an owner willing to run for less." By my estimation, The Pegasus Cup, at $3,000,000, is the third largest purse in the United States next year, behind the Breeders Cup Classic and Turf. Sorry if Lord Gary West finds that beneath his time and interest. Wishing Max and Game Winner lots of su...

It was reported on Racing Post, the stallions in Peru were hacked to death with axes for their meat. Am going to go throw up now.
I hope the monsters get the justice they deserve...the kind of justice that isn't doled out in a court room.

American Pharoah - Seeing him when in the BC Classic in person was a magical moment. Gun Runner - Favorite horse, followed him fanatically from his maiden win to the Pegasus. Mucho Macho Man - Happiest moment, his winning the BC Classic Beholder - Dirt mare of the decade for me Enable - Turf mare of...

Gary West says Max may run in Saudi Cup instead of Pegasus due to “drastic” purse drop. Says unfair to wait until “last minute” to inform owners of this change.
Just a ray of sunshine, isn’t he?
He’s not wrong.
He's also not a ray of sunshine. But he is consistent.

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

It's not like Peter Miller is Mr. Compassion, so I trust that when he says a horse should be retired, they should be retired. Rockingham Ranch also put Richard's Boy up for claim despite earning them a million dollars, so I don't know why anyone would an additional million dollars of earnings would ...
