Re: Rebel Stakes Saturday @ Oaklawn

97 BSF for Nadal. Wow, that race completely fell apart behind the top two. Were none of them as good as we thought, or do they all get another chance on a fast track? Also, I only got the chance to watch the one race today- was the rail good? That huge longshot runnerup rode it all the way around. ...

I wrote out and then deleted like four different posts. This week has been long and tiring enough already.

I look forward to Charlatan rebreaking in the stretch in a minute or so.

Hey, why not both? ;)

Re: FBI raid at Calder

Paulick tweeted out a statement from West in which that one definitively states that Maximum Security is going to Baffert.

On a completely unrelated note, the popcorn just finished in the microwave.

Re: Favorite Horses of the Decade (2009/10 - 2019/20)

Pretty disappointed that nobody has mentioned Goldikova thus far.

Also Jeranimo, Orfevre, Valid, US Navy Flag, Roly Poly, Frac Daddy, Ageless, Game on Dude, and some others I'm probably forgetting.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

I liked Curlin (but not as first)... and his adventures on the turf. He barely lost to a future Turf winner! It was pretty crazy. Jackson was so sporting. In retrospect I regret hating him. He put his horses in some crazy spots and they always did well. Ugh same. At least I had enough sense to enjo...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

It was a joke thread. Curlin might be the most hated horse ever on this forum.. this guy who now has a twitter (someone will have to help me out with the name) started this joke thread about who would win a match race - either Curlin or Jesus. People either were offended or the appropriate level of...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I've long thought that forums like this are a modern day Cheers neighborhood bar where folks meet after a days work or playing the ponies to solve the worlds problems as well as the more personal stuff. So, with that in mind, think about that bar just a couple of blocks from the track, every neighb...

Re: Standout Losing Efforts

Honestly, Victory Gallop was so badly interfered-with in the stretch that his winning effort was the more impressive one- and it saved us all from a lot of drama. Great topic, though! My first thought was Congaree's third in the 2001 Kentucky Derby. He ran his heart out that day as the only horse w...

Standout Losing Efforts

What are some losing races, but for whatever reason(s) those races have either always or have come over time to stand out for you personally? Stuff like Charismatic's Belmont, Carson Hollow's Test, and Zenyatta's 2010 Classic are assumed, naturally. For me, there are two that often come to mind, and...

Re: 2019 Met Mile

Looks like the Belmont might be War of Will vs. Tacitus for the most part. We haven't had a Preakness/Belmont double in a while, so I'm excited to see if we get one ( 2006 I think?). They're both bred for it, but Tacitus is rested, War of Will is on relatively short rest, and we'll get to find out ...

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

Do you happen to live in NY... specifically Long Island? Because I HATED driving out there for that reason. In the midwest, it's a bit better monitored. That's not to say that people don't speed, because they do (I mean, i go routinely 5-10 mph over the limit, but almost never more than that), but ...

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

To me, that's like saying "some people break the speed limit when they drive so we should just do away with speed limits." Hopefully this means that there will be more consistency going forward. In many areas (and esp where I live, ugh) the speed limit is routinely and informally disregarded. One c...
