Re: 2019 Fillies + Mares

How many 10 furlongs stakes races are there for the distaffers? Isn't there a race at Delaware ( Delaware Handicap? ) that we've seen mares like Blind Luck win? Thank you for giving me the opportunity to post one of my favorite races ever, Blind Luck winning the 2011 Delaware Handicap under a brill...

Re: G2 Stephen Foster

Watching TVG first at Churchill one of gate crew whipped a horse hard twice as he was balking at going in the gate...the horse really flinched and the camera immediately cut away...hate to see that. I saw that, too. :twisted: Several horses didn't want to load, enough so I wondered what was going on.

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

Very seldom are behavior issues a horse problem (PARTICULARLY if they've escalated to "violent"), they are almost always people created. There are plenty of people that have horses that are beyond their skill level. Plenty of people.

And now back to racing.

This is what I was remembering (dateline 5/20/19). . . 2 previous anomalies, actually.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Another atypical injury, and he's an unraced 2 year old with only three May workouts at Santa Anita. According to Equibase, he was bought as a yearling at Keeneland September for $160k and sold as a 2 year old in training at Ocala in March for $50k. His breeze time was 10.4. I know where I'd look f...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Going down the page, slightly... How do you offer comfort to a hog? Do you read it poetry? Offer it a bouquet? Hand it a prayer leaflet? I wondered about that, too. Better to make efforts to encourage people to curtail their meat consumption, and equally important, go after agribusiness. It's not s...

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

Can't help but wonder if the mistake was made of "confusing" H2-B workers with illegals. . . . . . . . .

"Company culture" is top down. Exploitation sucks.

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Alright, what's going to happen during the Belmont? I vote the starting gate tractor dies and they have to forfeit the race. 2 gates malfunction and the race is deemed void. Let's go big- all gates malfunction and they awkwardly back the horses out and go home. I can dig it. Signalman is the string...

It's not news that Curlin is a good sire, but 3 stakes winners at Pimlico on Black Eye Susan Day?

Somewhere, Jess Jackson is smiling.
