Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Very impressive win at DMR today by Eight Rings! By Empire Maker out of the Pure Prize mare Purely Hot and trained by Bob Baffert, definitely one to watch going forward. Reminds me somewhat of his sire in appearance/conformation.

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Hat's off to Casse as he plans to run WoW in the Belmont. If so it looks like he will be one of the very few if not only horse to run in all three TC events.

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

I would suggest people listen to two former jockeys, Rich Migliore and Tony Black, during the latter part of this recording (you can click the slider bar to the 01:16:00 mark, about 3/4s of the way to go straight there) : https://stevebyk.com/broadcast/part-2-johnny-d-rusty-arnold-bret-calhoun-tony-...

I'll be very surprised if the Preakness starting gate isn't full.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

What's not being considered is that War of Will appeared to be moving well before he was impeded. It's impossible to say that without the foul he would have placed better but there is no doubt he was improving his position before Maximum Security took his path away. Agreed. If anyone had a right to...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby


Agree... and with no money talking, no money lost. That horse never should have come down.
I've seen way worse in other races with no DQ.
That's the point. Yes, the rule(s) should always be abided by, but the application thereof does not always appear uniform, or so it seems.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Agreed. Watching the replay, War of Will looked like he was about to run right over top of Maximum Security's butt. It is very lucky that he didn't clip heels with him. Had he fallen right there, yikes. And that was the point... yes, they were obviously close when he came out but they didn't clip h...

Is Haikal still in? I heard that he was going to be scratched.
Nope, he's out. War of Will moves out one spot.
Somebody may want to indicate that in the Derby Pool contest if it hasn't already been done.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I just looked over the pp's and after doing so one horse really moved up my list: By My Standards. I had him about 10th on my list. Now he's my 3rd choice behind Roadster and Maximum Security. Off the numbers, it looks like he could win. Given they are predicting a 100% chance of rain on Saturday, ...

Everyone moves in a spot and Bodexpress gets #20. ((Well, everyone that was outside of him.)

Re: Omaha Beach out!

He was my top pick.... Have to really feel for his owner and trainer, both of whom are getting along in years. On the positive side he should be able to come back as good if not better than ever and hopefully be able to run in a lot of big races during the second half of the year.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Looks like the weather forecast for Saturday has changed for the worse with a very high percentage of rain and a wet track.
