Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

ARCADIA, Calif. – Higher Power returned to Santa Anita with his bloodwork “upside down,” trainer John Sadler said Wednesday, reasoning that stress from travel was a factor in his last-place finish as the favorite in the Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup on Saturday at Gulfstream Park. “He came back sound, b...

Re: Report: Zayat Sued for $23 Million, Sold Shares in American Pharoah

If he aggressively contests the efforts of the lenders to get repaid, the floodgates will open on the public disclosure of where all the money went, and I guarantee HE DOES NOT WANT THAT TO COME OUT. What pray tell could that be? Just your educated guess of course. He's been getting gambling lesson...

Kind of glad "Laker Jet" didn't win the 8th race at Santa Anita yesterday, conspiracy theorists would've had a heyday.

"...The Burbank Airport control tower allowed the helicopter to proceed northeast, following the Interstate 5 highway..." What?

Re: The Saudi cup

Sounds to me like there's "house rules" to play by, not the typical invitation list of eligibles. ***** The winner of the Pegasus World Cup will be invited for the Saudi Cup even if not previously entered. Horses trained in Saudi Arabia will have the opportunity to secure a place in the starting lin...

Re: The Saudi cup

As expected, the Saudi Cup invitation has been extended and Baffert said that both Mucho Gusto and McKinzie would depart from Santa Anita on Feb. 18.

“The race is $20 million at a mile and one eighth on Feb. 29,” he said.

Unlike the crazy rules horse racing has, the NBA makes you wait several years after retirement for HOF induction, Kobe would've been eligible this year.

Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

I bet him to show and was thrilled to see him get up there. I had to watch the replay to appreciate his great stretch run - from the lower boxes, the view from the turn to the stretch is now completely blocked by a monstrosity of a temporary grandstand - my once perfect Floriday Derby seats are now...

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Pletcher first timer MARKET ANALYSIS looked good enough first time out today in Gulfstream 4th going 7F to break his maiden. Cost $250,000 for Winstar/China, could be any kind going forward. BUT......when a 50/1 shot is bearing down to make it close at the wire, ya gotta wonder just a little bit, no?

Re: 2020 Pegasus World Cup

Anybody trying to handicap the Lasix-Off angle? Will grooms have their buckets of drinking water ready when horses come back to be unsaddled? The pace seems very confusing to me, will some jock try and be up closer than usual? So many questions, just hope it works out on the big stage today. p.s. De...
