Re: Boycott of Bloodhorse and Stronach Tracks

I think what you meant to say was "Nah nah nah-nah nahhh, I'm an industry insider and I know somethin you don't know, nah nah nah-nah nahhh" Otherwise I'm not sure why you'd share something like that with the unwashed masses. You couldn't help yourself. You had pretended to be a reasonable person s...

Re: El Segundo Sand

I have no direct knowledge of Segundo sand, or the dunes, but from some exposure to the pros and cons of various types of footing (including synthetics) in dressage arenas - the characteristics of sand which contribute to its properties as footing have to do with how the sand was formed. Uniform san...

Re: Stallion News

I feel like sporthorse breeders in the US or (more likely) Europe would have appreciated him, at a lower price point of course. He did sire the NSA Champion Novice horse last year (Iranistan, the jumps stakes winner you mentioned) and his conformation is superb. I feel like Americain is going on a ...

I hope he stays healthy. I've kill to see him in the Met Mile. It doesn't look like he'd have a problem getting that although you never know.

I still have questions about what this means: Strict limitations on the use of any pain or anti-inflammatory medication and treatment, including legal therapeutic NSAIDS, joint injections, shockwave therapy, and anabolic steroids. I hope the NSAIDs limitations applies only to race day. All high per...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

How is he fired for this and Haskins remains employed for enabling that wacko rescue girl? I'd really like the other side to this, because the way it looks to be right now is that it looks weird AF. Didn't Haskin retire a few years ago and just does freelance work for them? I'm not 100%, although I...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

That is very unfortunate :( I really enjoy Balan's twitter posts. I hope somebody else picks him up as he was excellent at his job. It blows my mind that covering an incident that actually happened would lead to this. Yeah, I don't get the "you don't normally report on this logic" at all. The mains...
