Re: 2019 Breeders Cup Classic and Watch

sort of thinking they should have taken smith off McKinzie some time ago - that horse has never tolerated the whip - and smith can be really fond of using it - curious to see who takes over though.

Re: Santa Anita Autumn Meet

doesn't sound like MG is going to run in the Classic - he is not BC nominated - and his trainer in the interview after the race, didn't sound like they were willing to pay the 200K to get him in. but maybe they will change their minds. horse would have a great shot in the race.

Vino might be tough in the BC Classic at Santa Anita - he already won the G1 Gold Cup at 1 1/4 earlier this year at that track.

Re: Jockey Club Gold Cup

well come on.... if they used the excuse that vino came over several lanes, he did most of that when there wasn't another horse next to him - heck, jocks move their horse over all the time to eyeball another horse to the wire - now vino did bump CoH a couple of times once he did get close to him - b...

Re: Jockey Club Gold Cup

so is Farish planning on bringing his horse out for the BC this year? I know he poo-poo'd the trip out here to Santa Anita with Mineshaft during that BC year. and he still won HOY. but maybe he figures, what the heck, he has another shot at getting put up into a better placing in yet another big rac...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

stark, I may be wrong - but I am pretty sure Tim Layden is pretty close with Baffert - didn't he spend a lot of time around Baffert during the American Pharoah campaign? I recall reading something Baffert said during that time, about letting Tim Layden know first on some things back then. I got the ...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

I was very sad and sorry to read of the passing of the great Peppers Pride - from that miserable horrible laminitis - just awful - this mare is and always will be a champ in my eyes - she went out there to compete every time - no matter who you are racing against, that is quite admirable - had nothi...

I hear what you are saying, Som - I have read or heard the same sentiment from a lot of different places. I think for me, because of the hiding of it, the positive bothers me even more. I realize mistakes happen. but since they hid this info and did a lot of behind closed doors stuff in this situati...

I read that info that John Cherwa put out this morning too - he said those were the two most recent - the CHRB recently said there were 6 other horses besides Justify who tested positive for that stuff - but they did not name the horses/trainers - Jay Privman in his local SoCal radio show this morni...

oh egads is that true? I had not heard that Omaha was done after this year - I was hoping he would still race again as a 4 year old - dreaming I guess.

djnorth.... I am glad you asked that question - I have been wondering about the same thing - I have not seen any other horses or trainers named - yet anyway.

very happy to hear that Julien Leparoux will ride Omaha Beach in the Ack Ack on the 28th - a very sweet horse gets a very sweet rider - Julien is one of the sweetest nicest riders out there - horse and rider will make a lovely team - cannot wait to see Omaha on the track again - wishing them both th...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

exactly.... why did the CHRB hide this info and do the closed door meeting crap - if there was nothing wrong, or out of the ordinary - or if this was totally done above board - then this info should have been available and put out there well over a year ago - but no, that is not what happened.

yes I too hope that a lawsuit is filed here in this case - I do not want this thing to be pushed to the side and forgotten - I want to see the CHRB and Baffert investigated - this has been a long time in coming in my opinion. and no matter what Drape may or may not have done in the past - and what p...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

if he had the drug in his system, should he have been DQ'd from winning the santa anita derby then? and if he was DQ'd from the santa anita derby, did he have enough points without that win to make it into the KY Derby field? are there any horses in California who tested positive for this drug, and ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

so it got into the horse's feed somehow (according to the baff camp) - from bad straw - - baff has such a big barn with so many horses, if it did come from bad straw, wouldn't more of his horses have ingested it also. seems odd to me. only this one horse. I must be missing something.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

by the way, Justify seemed to have a lot of big time owners buying in on the horse - right before the KY Derby - did they all know about this failed drug test?


the only one I feel sorry for in this whole thing, is Justify - that poor horse - it really just makes me sick for him.
