Re: Two Zayat horses to be sold over unpaid bills

Yes, people are definitely leaving this forum and racing conversation in general because we're just too mean to the millionaires who don't pay their bills. Won't someone please think of the rich people? America is hard enough on them already! (just a little fun fact: I know of at least one poster w...

Re: 2019 Breeders Cup Classic and Watch

Has it been confirmed Omaha Beach is retiring at the end of the year? I keep reading things that sound like he may race again, but I have been so busy with work and school I haven't had time to look it up. All parties seem to agree on the Pegasus being a goal. Mandella is publicly campaigning for a...

Re: 2019 Breeders Cup Classic and Watch

While I don't know much about the Hollendorfer's drama and maybe he deserves the ban, my problem is I know he isn't the only trainer who deserves a ban. SA had no problems sweeping Baffert's 4 dead horses and drug positive (not that he deserves a ban.. just using him as an example). If you want to "...

Racing fans always gotta complain about something. Be happy a company cares enough to sponsor instead of complaining about who it is.

Re: Pimlico & Laurel rebuild plans

It looks interesting. So are there going to be any stalls? Will the horses be vanned over that day? But still, the horses need to be there before the race and they gotta be held somewhere? Looks like they are trying to make it as multi-purpose as possible (which is a good idea since it brings in co...

Re: Baltimore vs. Stronach Group

That Bloodhorse article doesn't mention the part where they intend to rotate the track 30 degrees, which in my opinion destroys a lot of the argument for keeping the Preakness at Pimlico for the historical continuity (maybe I am the only one who feels that way though -- in my opinion once it's not ...

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

You sure are backing up and defending a result you don't like. That attitude of how "that's how the system works" is why horse racing and the government (since you brought it up) are in the state they are in. Keep us updated on your progress of waking up every morning with your panties all bunched ...

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

None of that answered my question. Obviously the mechanics of betting and ownership have changed. But why are you so ok with the fact that it’s ok to cover up when a horse pops a substance over the legal limit. You like that a mega trainer can get special treatment? Never ever did I even hint that ...

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

Stark, why do you want racing to stay as is? As a fan shouldn’t you want it to grow and be better, not just stay stagnate bc hey it’s what they’ve always done? I'm all in favor of growth and getting better. In fact, horse racing is about 117percent better than when I first fell in love with it, and...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Wasn't Omaha Beach suppose to race in 2020? or was the plan always to retire? The stud deal that was announced in the Spring just said, he would go to Spendthrift upon his retirement, there was no year mentioned but 99% of the time once a stud deal is done the horse is retired at the end of the yea...

and to add to what Tessa said, knowing how the other horses tested is something we need to know. As has been brought up, a contamination level as high as Justify had........that would have called for a broad announcement to each and every horseman and barn at SA.......to not do so showed a complete...

Can somebody here who doesn't believe the "hay theory" please tell me how it did happen, thanks.
I mean my grandmother told me that my grandfather was given scopolamine by doctors some time ago for a reason I can't remember. I imagine it may be available in a liquid IV form?
