Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Yeah I miss Kennedy's list, with all the variables and sound reasoning. Would it have killed him to throw a winner or two in there with all his sound reasoning? :lol: If memory serves, the winner of the Derby fell into the top echelon of his analysis model almost always. If I'm wrong, maybe he'll a...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Improbable will add blinkers for the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas Derby, said his trainer, Bob Baffert. The mile and an eighth race will be run Saturday at Oaklawn Park. Anybody know off hand if he's been working in them? Santa Anita 4/5/2019 Dirt 6F 1:14.00 Handily 1/8 Santa Anita 3/30/2019 Dirt 6...

Re: Streaming Video of Races

Doesn't your ADW provide video? Yes. They both do. I am not the issue. I have a friend who is new to sport and asked where he could watch the big races this weekend online. He said only Keeneland allowed him to just click a watch live button. Exactly what is the point of Santa Anita and Aqueduct ma...

Re: Streaming Video of Races

I have really enjoyed aging. I'm smarter and richer in so many things every year. My body has always hated me so the "wait til you get old thing" never meant much. We get to drink beers in the shower. I've never really cared what people think but now I really just don't care. I think my next car wi...

Okay Pointy..... :D I was offline all weekend while at Keeneland so I missed this until now, but I'm almost considering putting you on ignore for this. ;) Slightly more on-topic, Vekoma's action looks even weirder in person, can confirm. He does photograph surprisingly wel...

You realize there are people that refer to horses like Conquest Typhoon as "Phoony", yes? Pick worthier battles, man!
Phoony is a fantastic name and I move to refer to all horses accordingly. Twisty for the Derby!

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Some nice things in light of all of the heaviness going on right now: Bullet is potentially headed to Ascot after a nice win in the Palisades Turf Sprint today. I just love watching this horse race, he seems to be having a blast every step of the way. Look at those ears! https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

I have been thinking about this myself over the last couple of months. The fact that most of the true speed and pace has all but been eliminated via the points system is definitely having an effect on the outcome of the Derby in particular. I'm not sure this is true. 2013 - 22.57, 45.33, 1:09.80, 1...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

For all the desire to respect the TC as it is why does no one bring up that we have had two winners since CDI manipulated the entries?

Absolutely fantastic stuff, Curtis. Thank you so much for sharing it. I'll check out that book you mentioned for sure, but there's nothing like talking with people directly about these things.

I told myself that having American Pharoah win it all makes this less nerve-wracking but that is turning out to be a total lie.

Between this and all that "if" yelling in the other thread, I think stark is working through some issues in light of the revelation that George Soros owns part of Justify.
