Re: Haskell Day

I thought running the stakes later was a good compromise. Living in South Florida I've never understood the need to start running at 12:30 in the summer when it's light til 8:00 anyway. Was very happy to see Maximum Security get another win, I don't see he did anything wrong, seemed to stay in his p...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

Tattoo Molly, by Cuvee was shipped to slaughter early this morning. I hope her death is quick. There was an effort to save her, which was unsuccessful. She was a pretty bay lady, with white socks. She was a sweet, willing girl who could have had a second career. Well, I can't believe it. But someho...

Re: Honestly Honey

Heritage Sale is a kill sale sadly I feel horribly naive, I had no idea there was a sale where farms openly dumped broodmares without a reserve knowing they would be at risk for slaughter. Kory Pierson was the top buyer at the sale, buying 16 horses, $500 each - 14 of them broodmares (in addition t...

Honestly Honey

In a search for her daughter, Late Nite Laura, was a little distressed to find her listed in thoroughbred sale at age 23. Looking further I found she, and numerous other horses sold for $500 to Kory Pierson in October last year at Heritage Sales. The only thing I find when searching Kory Pierson is ...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

To celebrate Bodexpress' adventure today, let's all recall the greatest riderless horse race of the modern era: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN2bG90Qxdc No no. That would be the horse who beat NATIVE DIVER in one of his Hollywood GCs. I am partial to Fort Larneds Gulfstream Park Handicap win in ...

I don't know why I'm surprised, looks like they are trying to make a point (any point to avoid having to limit field size?)

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

While we are arguing all of this from now until 2063, I hope they do a scan of MS' right front sometime. Changing leads early could have been the sign of an ouch. Little ouches become bigger.

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

would the same people complaining about the DQ also be complaining if Maximum Security had brought down other horses, caused a fatal accident and not been DQd? Why does the derby have so many different standards than say a Wednesday evening claiming race at a track like Presque Isle? Does Presque I...

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...

Re: Positive Outcomes From The Derby

Anyway, I've had three non-racing friends text me asking what on earth happened yesterday when they've otherwise never brought up racing. Any press is good press, right? I suppose, even the Donald is weighing in: "The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough & tumble race on a wet...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Find it weird that there appears to not be an article about the Derby on Bloodhorse. Just two about how the Wests are "gracious in defeat" and one about LNJ Foxwoods. Not that I'm wanting to start a flame war with the nuthouse that if the Bloodhorse comments, but I was curious as to whether they we...
