Re: Mares and value

I would say better to have raced her, because even if she never won (and as long as she didn't be a Zippy Chippy), she at least showed the gumption to be receptive to training and tried. But really it all comes down to the individual mare and individual case. As always there's plenty of top race ma...

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

For those who care (including those attending and those wagering), forecast for the week shows little to no threat of rain, other than passing storms this evening. For those attending, forecast of 72 degrees and only 60% humidity. Those who've attended in the past recognize how significant this part...

Re: 2019 Met Mile

May they all stay sound. Amen. The undercard races will be the highlight of the day beyond the Belmont Stakes, imo, which threatens to be an afterthought. I might even have to consider beating the traffic and bailing a little early unless i'm alive in some multi race wagers......….who's the evening...

Re: Appeal denied

I imagine West may be a little peeved. Coolmore is probably not camped out in his front yard making $40,000,000 offers or more for the privilege of standing MS at stud. All that cash evaporated with the stewards decision. There was no planet in the solar system where Coolmore was going to offer $40...

Re: What race was Gary West watching?

maybe West wants to get out the sport because the stewards pick and choose when they want to follow the rules . I mean talk about frustration. I can understand that. I'm not sure at all that this is what happened here in this case, or anywhere, mainly because there are no consistent 'rules', are th...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

I hate the trainer of Maximum Security, believe he is a cheater, but the West family was robbed. Saez was robbed. The gambling public was robbed. And I bet Roadster. Nearly 20 minutes to make the wrong decision. The KY Stewards must be fired, not even for the atrocious decision, but for taking 20 m...

With Shug and Mott combining for a $3,000 exacta for each $2 invested, there's got to be some happy campers out there somewhere.
Math says they're outnumbered by those tearing up what they thought were winning tickets.

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. Yea, War of Will definitely lost...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I don't have a problem with the DQ it's more an inconsistency of the DQ. MS effects them all - CH, Code of Honor and WoW. I have seen stewards take a winner down entirely and move everyone up in this scenario. WTF. I agree with you on the inconsistency. But that's a different conversation, imo. The...
