Re: Stallion News

I doubt it was a traumatic fracture that initially caused the problem. It was likely a chronic issue secondary to Cervical Vertebral Malformation. I think the fracture happened secondary to the surgical procedure meant to ease the pain. Either due to something that occurred in recovery or a patholog...

Re: Saturday Gulfstream Watchalong

It is just me or is this Gulfstream card beginning to smell? People knew it would be a massive betting card given that it is the only game in town and that it is a mandatory payout on the Pick 6. Seems like a few might be investing for the near future of no racing.

Re: Foals of 2020

While I love chestnuts and chestnuts with blazes, Justify seems to be passing on wide, sloppy blazes that I really don't like. They're cute on foals, though. I get what you are saying. I love flashes of color, but I do not find the excessive splashes all that attractive- just don't like white over ...

Re: 2020 Fillies + Mares

Not sure about this year, but based on how her previous setbacks last year were described, she was almost certainly "tying up." That condition can have a genetic component so I would think that might affect a price should they decide to sell her at auction. I was a bit surprised they decided to try ...

Re: Kentucky Derby and the Coronavirus

IIRC it has been postponed to June before. None of the TC races were run during the Civil War; the oldest one, the Belmont, was first run in 1867- two years after it concluded. Also, I was going to share a tip I learned the other night. If you mix equal parts aloe and alcohol, it is a good substitu...

The coming storm

With the announcement of the Fed basically printing money to short term save the markets, exactly how bad is the fall out going to be with thoroughbred markets? I am guessing there will be a huge contraction of the foal crop maybe not this year, but definitely next year. The pinhookers will feel the...

Why can't there be a Triple Crown if the Derby is delayed? Didn't Gallant Fox win the Preakness before the Derby in his year?

Re: The Saudi cup

One of my favorite old chat rooms was the old C-J Derby forum. Had some good times in there. I feel as though there was another one back then as well, but I can't remember its name anymore.

So somebody was picked up by the Central California District US Attorney's office. Inquiring minds want to know who that was.

Who announced this?
It was at the end of the Bloodhorse article about the license suspension

Re: FBI raid at Calder

Honestly, if you really want to nip doping in the bud, ban horses from the studbook - they cannot be bred or continue racing. See how quickly owners would stop turning a blind eye to what trainers are doing.

Re: When will the racing media turn on Baffert like cycling media did on Armstrong

Never, because he is king. I think you are more likely to see Baffert quietly retire in the next year, and that will be your answer. TBTF policy would definitely protect him because his downfall would just bury the dead body further in the ground. Maybe he can appear in racing's version of Tour de ...

If there were Olympic athletes involved, then that may be why the FBI started looking in to the compounding pharmacy to begin with.

Re: The Saudi cup

I would encourage re-testing the samples, but after thinking on it more I'm quite skeptical of Racing Victoria's claim. Chiefly, I'm not certain anyone knows what SGF-1000 actually is . An RV official called it "a peptide," but the sgf1000.com website description (which is basically nonsense) lists...

I am actually surprised that this didn't happen in CA. :shock: Can't say too much about it, because it would feel like mostly speculation at this point (apart from "thank god they got busted"). Just wondering if there's a correlation between drugs and the surge of horses dropping dead from heart at...

With me it's not that I can't afford them (although I am by no means wealthy), it's just the getting there. If I go to the BC (or Derby) I wanna go to it with the mentality that this could be my only time going. Therefore, I wanna live it up and go both days. Most realistic way for me to go to the ...

Re: Princess Haya, wife of Sheikh Mohammed, Flees Dubai

I don't remember the specific name but a year or two ago I read about a princess or similar title from Dubai that fled, was captured by Saudis and returned, and who now lives as an extremely abused prisoner. People like to pretend women in the US have it bad, making up problems we supposedly face.....
