Re: Gulfstream spill

That makes sense. Bones heal fairly quickly but concussions not so much. Although, Randy Romero's elbow comes to mind that never did heal. I'm glad the Jockey's guild is doing research as, I'm sure, the Disabled Jockey's Fund. ETA: Reading the articles about Concussions led me to wonder if CTE had/h...

Re: Gulfstream spill

Any news on the jocks? Especially Rafael Hernandez. Broken wrist for Rosario. Out about 6 weeks. How did he not have a concussion? I would think with the helmet splitting he would at least have a mild concussion. I mean I know that's what helmets are for, it saved his life but usually there is SOME...

Re: 2015 Belmont Stakes News & Notes

An overhead replay view would have required that the race be recorded from a blimp. Maybe the airspace security restrictions over New York and its environs have gotten so strict that a blimp for a mere sporting event wasn't allowed? Or perhaps there were too many regulation hoops to jump through fo...

Re: 2015 Belmont Stakes News & Notes

Someone may have posted this already, but did anyone else see the Burger "King" in the stands behind Baffert just before the race? What was up with that?

Is he 2 or 3? If he's 2, I would be worried about them starting him this early.

Re: Foals of 2015

That explains the whole Last chance corral thing. I couldn't understand why there were all these young foals for adoption with no mares attached.

Re: Concern passes at age 25

Thanks for posting this. I had missed it on Bloodhorse. He was a good race horse. Not terribly consistent but when he put it all together he was awesome!

Re: Foals of 2015

I understand premature foals are never a good thing but one week doesn't seem like that big of a deal; although I understand it's an individual thing. We had one born 3 weeks early that had a few problems but was ok. That mare always had foals a week or 2 early. Why was Groupie Doll not taken with h...

Eclipse Awards

I know there's a thread about HOY but what about the other awards? I'm thinking Main Sequence will get Turf Male over Wise Dan. I think 2YO awards are in question with Saturday's results. Off topic: I didn't know where else to post this question. I read that Jim Rome is upset that Mike Smith didn't ...

Rajiv Maragh

I missed the first 30min or so of NBC Sport's broadcast of the Shadwell Turf Mile today. My mom said they showed a picture or X-ray of Rajiv's arm. I can't seem to find it online. Does anyone have a link to that? I know I'm weird for wanting to see it lol

Smith landed on his shoulder hard. He kept acting like it was bothering him when he was on SB. I know he'll feel that in the morning.

Re: Victor choked!

While the injury was surely uncomfortable, I doubt that was the sole cause of his defeat. It was a relatively minor injury.He was tired and was up against a lot of horses. When these horses are running they are so pumped up on adrenaline they hardly notice any pain. Humans are the same. When they ar...

Re: Victor choked!

I thought the ride was fine. Maybe not perfect but hindsight is 20/20. If A HOF jock said the ride was fine under the circumstances then I agree with him. In any event, whether or not CC was uncomfortable being boxed in or taken out of his usual style, or whether Victor should have done this or that...

His pedigree is the ONLY reason he should be a stud. One grade one win at 2 does not a classy horse make.
