Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

It's the New York Times. It's not an unreasonable position. So we should believe Baffort’s attorney. Got it. Tough choice, one of them relies on click bait to make a living while the other tries to operate within the legal system while admittedly pushing the edge of the envelope. Forced to make a d...

Re: Stallion News

I don't care what time of the year that upper photo was taken; that horse is in poor condition. And if that happened during quarantine, what the hell are their quarantine conditions like? A horse that is being cared for properly shouldn't end up looking like a refugee from Camerero after the hurric...

What happened to Go Big Or Go Home? IIRC, I saw him in the post parade of a race at Saratoga last weekend, and noticed his nice pedigree. :(
Broke down Weds in the 8th and later euthanized.

I wish they would get Take Charge Indy out of So. Korea. After seeing pictures of them breeding mares with a huge bandage on his hind leg, I have worried about him.

Re: Waiting for news on ...

"Collapsed" and "failed to fully revive" sounds like either some sort of cardiac event or extreme reaction to the very warm day. I saw a lot of horses being vigorously hosed down as soon as their saddles came off, so I wonder if heat and/or humidity were factors. :( I saw a tweet quoting the vet th...
