Under your name, go to user control panel and from there the friends and foes tab.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

maybe Casse knew his jock might not be so squeaky clean in this incident - just heard Nick Hines on the radio give some very good points of view on the rides of both Prat and Tyler G - perhaps both of them played a part in this whole thing after all - Hines pointed out some interesting stuff about ...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

people keep talking about what catastrophe could have occurred if horses went down in the final turn yesterday and how racing dodged a bullet. well hello, this happens every year (almost) in the first turn of the Derby's - and yes, bad stuff could really happen there too - so what is the difference...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Country House's silks remind me of what I believe where Georgica Stable's silks (the only horse I can easily recall running in them is Buy the Sport). I can't even find a replay of the race online to confirm and all my programs are in another location. Is there any connection?

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

Attendance has been capped at 90k for a few years soooooo

I love events that continue to expose people for what they are.

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

Lmaaaaoooo I just saw the tweet. Now I know it was the right decision. Let everyone argue over who was robbed and who wasn't. It's benign, it'll drum up interest the next time the two (hopefully) meet, and it'll make all the people who like to have strong opinions on things they know little about s...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Twinspires is refunding bets on MS up to $10. Is CDI throwing the stewards under the bus? Or is it just a publicity stunt? I think this is very, very good customer service. They know this is controversial and getting even something back makes very unhappy people slightly happier. It's best to get o...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

The amount of press we are getting over this is insane.

All over ESPN, morning news shows, all over talk radio, Donald Trump is commenting on it... this might not be a bad thing.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

NYRA bets got a new customer today. No apology from Xpressbets or even a statement over not being able to deposit money within an hour of the Derby yesterday.

That might be the biggest story of all..

I left the game for good last night but then felt better this morning so I decided to come back. Just thought the world needed to know.
:D

I think I need to see a G1 walkover now just so I can say I've seen everything. I feel rejuvinated about this game for the first time in about a year.

NBC should have done a much better job mentioning that other jockeys were also lodging complaints.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

...that being said, I just looked at the Bloodhorse comments and I think a self-lobotomy is in order. Forget the media, we can't even win among our own fans. There are a lot of racing fans who are really only gamblers only interested in themselves. People in general are really only interested in th...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I don't see much outrage about it. Seems like the public is happy enough with it and wishes the NFL has the same level of review. Tomorrow someone will die on GOT and we'll be the only people to care. People still care about football after Dez didn't catch it, the MLB riots, people are somehow still...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Do you guys think this DQ stands if a bigger named trainer trained Maximum Security?

I support this DQ but am wondering anyway.

Durkin's best call, and maybe anyone's. He yells the whole race in a state of pitched excitement and the result is a work of art.
I miss him so. I like Collmus, but he tries too hard to sound epic. For Durkin epic just came naturally.

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

Hell no! Speak for yourself.

I think everyone in the entire country heard me screaming with joy. I vividly remember everything about my surroundings. It was amazing.

I smile thinking how Blame is even better in the shed. Pettiness dies hard..

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

The English language is infinite. Surely they could think of some title

Mine that Drama
Derby Day Drama
Every 10 Years Things Go to Shit
Etc.
