Re: Santa Anita 2019

Will the media show up for such a positive display of love for the horses...or do they just show up when there's a death or chance of an injury on live TV?

Gustav Klimt looks like he has a horse's head and neck on a pony's body. :shock:

Re: Santa Anita 2019

"I also think it’s important that people realize that the initial rash of deaths and the deaths now are two separate things." I agree with Ms. Terrell. Many ( if not most ) of the deaths that occurred earlier could be reasonably traced to the numerous times the track was sealed...without being harr...

Marconi closed out the big day with a win in the 12-furlong Brooklyn. https://www.paulickreport.com/news/thoroughbred-racing/marconi-leads-all-the-way-in-brooklyn-invitational/ Considering Marconi, Tacitus ( 2nd in Belmont ) and all the Belmont winners by him, it looks like Tapit has turned out to ...

Re: Belmont Stakes Race Day Card

I'm so happy that the late, great Giant's Causeway left us with such a good son from late in his stallion career. I know B&M is a bay, but there's something about his face and the way he runs that reminds me a lot of his sire. There may be a few top 3yos missing ( like Max' and 'House ), but I agree...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

I kind of blame whoever was responsible for putting a mare in heat just down the aisle from that horse. It's not the stallion's fault that he was put into "I got to breed' mindset, with all those hormones overwhelming any sort of training he might have had. :oops:

Re: Belmont Stakes Race Day Card

Need to rename the track FAST Sandy. :P We could easily see a new stakes record in the Belmont.
Not sure what the rider on Serengeti Empress was thinking...43 and change for the first half mile? No surprise she couldn't hang on.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Tessa, that was the first thing that occurred to me, as well. The use of bisphosphonates in humans has been linked to unusual bone weakening/breaks, so it seems like that could be at play here.

After winning the Yasuda Kinen over a good field, I'm a little surprised that Indy Champ didn't make that list.

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

Checking for TV coverage, I see that NBCSN doesn't start its racing program until 11:30 AM Pacific, with regular network NBC picking it up at 1 PM Pacific. That means that NBCSN doesn't start showing the racing from NY until 2:30 PM Eastern, when I presume a bunch of races have already been run. :sh...

Re: 2019 Belmont Stakes

Tapit is the only sire since Man O War to sire 3 Belmont winners.

And if it hadn't been for American Pharoah, Tapit's son Frosted would have made it four. :P ;)

I know horses generally do OK in cold weather, but doesn't a 21-year-old champion deserve a bit more shelter than an open shed? :oops:

I wonder if Art's health issues were a factor in Faversham's move to another trainer? :?
I hope that he comes through this with as clean a bill of health as one can hope for after cancer treatment.

And IIRC, Soi Phet likes the Los Al track, so that might be a race he will do well in. Gives him a chance to go out a winner.
