Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Who cares if they don't trust him lol. We don't any of these people personally. We can't trust any of them. Maybe racing should have cared anytime over the past 50 years to improve it's public image and then one NYT story wouldn't look so bad. Treating fans like they're stupid is silly. A lot of us ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

Cali government now has the authority to outrank the CHRB and can suspend racing at SA as Cali Gov sees fit, right?

The BC still wants it's marque event in this cluster of a state?

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

by the way, Justify seemed to have a lot of big time owners buying in on the horse - right before the KY Derby - did they all know about this failed drug test? the only one I feel sorry for in this whole thing, is Justify - that poor horse - it really just makes me sick for him. The PRC bought into...

This is not going to bring about any change, unless it prompts further government control.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I’m withholding final judgment as more information is released and the story develops, Big congratulations, wish the rest of the country could follow your lead, thanks. What spoilsports you two are. Waiting for actual facts is no fun. It's the right thing to do of course. However, when you realize ...

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

he CHRB is a prime example of why racing has an image problem, the people running the show have conflicts of interest. Not just in California, but all over the country. In my years as an owner, I can say without a doubt, thoroughbred racing is an insular, political world, and it doesn't want any ou...

So do people still really believe Bayern shouldn't have been DQed. The CHRB deserves to have the State take it over.

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

WinStars post TC comments and retiring this horse immediately destroyed my passion for this game. The Restoring Hope thing was also just bad taste. Ever since I've kind of looked at racing the way you might look at a significant other once someone brings something negative to your attention and the ...

Re: Jockey club exploring 140 mare cap per stallion

I think for a libertarian to be upset, a libertarian would actually have to know what it is well enough to know what upsets it.

I don't see how this is a bad idea. I think it's physically easier on all stallions too.

Re: Saratoga 2019

Was anyone at sweatshirt giveaway day? Complete and utter madness. What is it about "free" stuff that makes people go into a blood frenzy? Parking and admission cost just as much as a sweatshirt in the first place... I haven't been to Saratoga since 2015, but I went over the Labor Day weekend for a...

Re: Honor Code ...

Ugh, messed up quotes. I guess that's what I get for typing on a treadmill. I feel like Honor Code was a horse I really enjoyed and respected but is somehow lodged in my memory as a horse I was generally left wanting more from. Memory is a strange thing. I went looking and he routinely just ran agai...

Re: Honor Code ...

He twice comfortably thumped an $875,000 Candy Ride colt owned by Peter Brant for starters. When he was on the inside, the rider was looking at his workmate imploring him to stay with him while he was being asked by that rider to go, until finally running away from him near the wire. Of course, Bra...

I've eaten a lot of Korean food and the meat is rarely smoked. I think Americans are mostly in love with smoked meat. I know I am. I don't view Korea as the death sentence most people do.
