Re: Santa Anita 2019

This is just the laziest kind of journalism. I've lost all respect fot the L.A. Times, which recently ran an article sympathetically describing the ludicrous spectacle of PETA and sympathizers meeting on the steps of an area slaughterhouse to offer "comfort" to the hogs. :roll:

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

it seems that these were legal immigrants under a "need" program. I really don't want to think that squeaky clean Chad was skimming a few bucks from their powerlessness. In this country we skate on cheap labor in crappy jobs--would it be a disaster to spend 20 cents more per pound for chicken thighs?

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Is this really devastating and something people should be "gutted" over? The horse is alive and well. We don't need Monmouth tweeting that they send their condolences. This sport has issues. I think "condolences" is not an appropriate word, but I'd be devastated and gutted. I'm sitting here with a ...

Re: Roadster

The problem is spotting the .1%. ;) I prefer Game Winner of the Bafferts. I thought Roadster's return was really good, considering the doubts raised by his disappointing DM Futurity, and his kick in the SA Derby impressed me. I just think he has the potential to be discombobulated by a big field and...

You'd think some of the East and Midwest trainers and owners who claim to be hay, oats and water fans would be shipping strings to SA. :(

Re: Master Fencer(JPN) to Kentucky Derby

If they're going to offer guaranteed slots for Japan and Europe (not to mention the UAE Derby) why not include one for the highest-ranked filly? Well, because there isn't a potential "bet on fillies" market to be mined. Otherwise it would make just as much sense.

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Contrarian that I am, I like Game Winner. I hope he's been brought along slowly to peak the first Saturday in May. I think Roadster might run into conditioning issues although "two preps" is a mantra. The one thing I don't like about Omaha Beach is that he was fairly beaten by Nolo Contesto, who did...

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

Thanks for the anecdote, Curtis--Quack was a son of my first favorite, T.V. Lark. I was touched to hear Caton Bredar say recently that perhaps her all-time favorite was another offspring of T.V. Lark, the wonderful gray filly Pink Pigeon!
