Re: O'Neill to debut string in Dubai

Curious if Mora's still separated from his wife, probably can't be an easy decision for her to move to Dubai?

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

Funding long term care is a difficult concept when it comes to our own human parents, not sure why the expectations for horses should be so much better.

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

Not that it absolves them, but Rockingham was bought out of their share by the other owner - Bernsen. The single owner is the one moving the horse to FL and a new trainer. Why shouldn't it absolve them? I dunno, maybe wait a couple of days for the facts.😉 Pretty sure Rockingham is dead by now. http...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

It will be interesting to hear the other side of the story, there's always at least two, sometimes three.

I'll wait a day or two before forming an opinion.

Re: CHRB Memo To The Ca. Governor

The fans vs. Stronach vs. CHRB vs. statewide government vs. PETA vs. horsemen vs. owners, it's all gotten to the point where the game just isn't worth it anymore in California. The next battle I'm looking forward to being a spectator at is the developer who buys the Santa Anita land and the oppositi...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

I hate it when the horse is named Mr. or Ms. or Mrs something but they leave off the period, case in point new stakes winner Mr Dumas. Really? My Pop used to say there are some people that would complain if “Ya hung ‘em with a new rope.” Ben Franklin lamented about the lack of a nail, now, I guess ...

Re: CHRB Memo To The Ca. Governor

Update from the author.... And speaking of Baedeker’s letter to the Gov., my email blew up on Saturday. Just a scant few of you believed these measures were steps in the right direction. The overwhelming tone of things were that these were going to further weaken California racing, driving it to ext...

CHRB Memo To The Ca. Governor

Copy and pasted from the John Cherwa/LA Times newsletter.... Remembering back a couple weeks at the California Horse Racing Board meeting that would never end, executive director Rick Baedeker announced several recommendations the board was making to Gov. Gavin Newsom. He hit many of the high points...
