Re: California Chrome to Japan

I must correct my mistake in my first post, though. The Phipps/Claiborne mares are only in Not For Love's pedigree , so the tail female line on Chrome is a bit more modest, although his 3rd dam was also the dam of the MSW Mare Amourette, and Bloodlines.net also notes that his family, A4, is one of ...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

did anyone see any contact between WoW and Mongolian Groom late in the stretch? during the live broadcast, it looked like WoW was slowing down or pulling up near the rail and Tyler G was looking behind him at Mongolian Groom who was also getting pulled up and you could tell, MG had gone wrong. I'd ...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

With all due respect, I suspect your frame of reference may be somewhat narrowly focused - and this is the 3rd time you've made that last statement. I worked in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry for 35 years and was lucky enough to have a first row seat on research going from petri dish to the ma...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I have experience with research studies (how to conduct them etc), but in another field. The problem I find with most studies is that it's a small sample size to begin with. Then - so very often - other studies blindly copy the results of one study or results they found in a research paper and use ...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

. . . I highly doubt Tessablue ever worked with racehorses. She doesn't have the practical knowledge that some others on this board have (see for example about having to race 2 year olds). . . . Horse racing isn't science and math, because horses are - like humans - individuals. Even if you have a ...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

None of those facts were in play. This is a thread premised on a single unfortunate fatality at Santa Anita about which she knows nothing. She chose to launch yet another screed of over the top moral posturing, punctuated by the word "zero" deaths. NO, the use of the word "again" in the title (to s...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

You wrote: "This means we can get to zero deaths" because "science". Two of us called bullshit on that, and your response was to provide an short essay based on mind reading and ad homonym. So, back to science. Show your math. Actually, she already has as referenced above. And although I agree that...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

I suppose someone should mention that Maximum Security is running this weekend as well, in the Bold Rulder at Belmont. Not an easy task- it's a pretty nice bunch of older horses. He's a bit antsy in the paddock and in the post parade, but he looks terrific. The pundits are talking about his works, ...
