Re: Jockey Club Gold Cup Inv. (G1)

What does Mott expect him to do from here on? The horse is already 6. Hmm maybe win the Classic? In fairness, Mott may not expect anything but be happy for the horse's accomplishments. You mention that the horse is already 6 but so many folks complain that sound horses retire too soon. Ultimately, ...

Re: Eblouissante

Such a shame she retires with bettors having had so few opportunities to play against her. If her Shuvee was any indication, she was going to take the dumb money every time out. Shirreffs spent too much time trying to set the record for most recorded workouts without a start and too little time giv...

Re: so many ways sold

I guess she couldn't pass up the money, but come on - it irritates me. She's 3, still a lot of nice races she could win, even at 4. Really? How dumb. And yes, I know it's only my opinion.
