Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

California trainer Andrew Lerner reading the latest CHRB report was shocked to see that he had a fatality listed.
Upon further review, turns out it was a 19 year old pony.
Hmmmm.

Jay Privman @DRFPrivman @EurtonRacing on his approach with Storm the Court : "If we get to the Derby, I want to have a horse who’s fresh, sharp. To cram three races in I don’t think would be in his best interests. I could do it, but then by the Derby maybe I’ve got a used-up horse.” Baffert had been...

Re: The Saudi cup

Do threats from missiles and armed UAVs from both Iran and their Houthi proxies in Yemen count as politics? Google ARAMCO attacks. The Iranians are more pissed off now because of Soleimani and they will get payback. An high-profile event with many Americans is a tempting target, not to mention the ...

Re: The Saudi cup

We can talk about both subjects. It's also possible to chew gum and walk at the same time. As a general rule, not so true. Conversations that turn political have a very short life span here thanks to Kurenai. Which is a good thing according to those who remember the olde days here. Enjoy the race!

Why? Does it make you uncomfortable for someone to point out that MbS is using horse racing to 'sports wash' his country's and his reputation? :roll: This.

Oh well, wrong team, but right on the under total score.

Reminds me of why I don't like betting on 4-5 shots and having to wait four hours for the results to come in.

Kansas City has the most exciting quarterback in football, that's no secret. The NFL would love to have a high scoring shoot-out to entertain the national audience.
