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

he CHRB is a prime example of why racing has an image problem, the people running the show have conflicts of interest. Not just in California, but all over the country. In my years as an owner, I can say without a doubt, thoroughbred racing is an insular, political world, and it doesn't want any ou...

Re: New Latonia!

I know Turfway is a modest race track, but reading how CDI just wants to snuff it out makes me a bit nauseous. CDI is like the Evil Empire, trying to conquer and control everything around it. It doesn't seem to care about the harm it may be doing to every human and horse who is trying to make a liv...

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Seven-year-old Disco Partner finished 3rd in the $100,000 Lucky Coin turf sprint at Saratoga this afternoon. A year or two ago, he would have blown by that field. Think maybe it's time for the handsome little grey to find a comfy stall in a NY stallion barn and start making little 'Partners. :P :D ...

Need to drop field to 14 and use just the one standard gate.
That will never happen- until---there is a catastrophe-- we came pretty close last year to a catastrophe
IMO it is only a matter of time before it happens.

Re: Imperative

The partner, John Guarnere, had announced the retirement via twitter also. He is also the one who posted a few days ago that Imperative is no longer retired, and that it sounded like he gave his share (or sold it) to paolucci. He also said he hopes the horse stays safe and wished him luck. I just f...
