Re: Roadster

At the very least, I've been loyal. This wasn't a quote from Baffert to the best of my knowledge, and was pretty darn solid on Feb 26th, the week before the Allowance race on March 1st. IMHO. So....do I have this right? An allowance win on Friday (about 10 days ahead of youknowwho's schedule) Then s...

Re: Roadster

Wow pretty cool how long ago you started this thread. He's my favorite now. I was amazed when I saw the date of the OP. Well done. That might be some type of record for first call around here, if Roadster wins the Derby thanks. If you read the initial post, it is Bob Baffert who says this is his mo...

Re: Roadster

I already made my bet on my #1 Derby horse yesterday. I think he's the class, he should be chalk but he won't, and he's going to win easily. But I want the casual fans to keep putting money down on Baffert's trio. Just curious, were you the plunger that made Bellamy Road 5/2 in the Derby off his ro...

Re: Roadster

Love this horse since first saw him- really rooting for him and Omaha Beach. Would be so great for Mr. Porter after all he has been through, but if he can’t do it then hoping Roadster can. Longshot: Long Range Toddy. Looks pretty straightforward..... Roadster can be your primary pick unless the ski...

If the quarter crack is true, no matter how minor, does anybody foresee Papa getting on a plane with a 3YO?
I think not.
No way, no how. Where’s Peace these days?

PURSES RAISED BY $10,000 ON EVERY NON-STAKES RACE AT SANTA ANITA PARK IN JOINT AGREEMENT BETWEEN TRACK & THOROUGHBRED OWNERS OF CALIFORNIA
Maybe they should just offer a $1,000 participation check to the first ten who show up for every race. Spread the wealth.

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

I won't post it or my TBC Derby Contest picks until minutes before the race. Personally, and perhaps I speak for others as well, I don't think that's fair to those of us who follow you and appreciate the advice you can provide. I have to have all my bets in early in the day. Thanks in advance.

Pushing to ban Lasix as a response to physical breakdowns on the track feels like making Nascar drivers change their cars' paint schemes in order to prevent wrecks. :roll:
I'm surprised nobody is trying to protect the wagering public by limiting transactions to $50.

Re: The VENT Thread

A look back at the good old days.....

When the news on TV and in the papers got to be too depressing, from politics to school shootings, I always had horse racing to fall back on, weekend escapes from reality that I really enjoyed.

Now what?

Re: Santa Anita 2019

I distinctly remember a West coast trainer going back to NY for a big race and a reporter asked " are you concerned about their no-lasix policy? And the trainer said "I'm not at all worried, they've got stuff there to take care of it, I don't even know what it is, but my horse is going to run great"

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Question....
Back in the day when NYRA was the only Lasix-free track in America, what did they use instead?
And please don't tell me hay, oats and water, thanks.
