Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

The winners name sounds like a bad chain restaurant though.

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: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

I left horse racing, never to return, when I was 11 and Majestic Prince was robbed of a Belmont win. Since then, I estimate that I've vowed never to return approximately 300 to 400 times. Based on historical precedent, I'm guessing that my outrage over the Derby will last about two weeks. (I'm stil...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

The hottest takes of the day have to be someone saying "racing is dead" because of this and saying they shouldn't have done it because "a bum will be the winner." Similar scalding "takes" are the folks around here that are jumping ship because them rich people "robbed" them. Well, I wish people wou...

I imagine plenty of the same people who would have gotten that brutally wrong are championing the decision that happened today.

Wow again! Interesting that people are "done" over MS dq but not when 23 die at SA, 7 of Baffert's od on thyroid meds, etc. Just wow...
It's amazing that moral high ground people find themselves on once they've lost money, isn't it.

Re: 'Categories' of Stewards Rules, TIF Discussion

Yeahhhhh girl you barking up the wrong tree. Organization is not what racing in the USA wants to get behind. I don't have a problem with the DQ, it is the disturbing level of inconsistency that is problematic. This is hard for bettors, long time fans, and casual ones to get behind. It's like working...

Re: 2019 Triple Crown

Good. We don't need more just to get on a van to Kentucky and do nothing again. The 15 year old in me cringes at that. I look forward to smaller crowds, less drunk assholes, and a shorter commute home. I bought my Belmont tickets this morning and there really weren't many left at all so maybe the en...

It was actually Horse Racing's finest hour. Feel free to let yourself out, anytime you wish.
He'll be back this time next year, no worries.

it's ended my enjoyment. last year's TC was all tin foil hats, this year opened up with nearly 2 dozen dead horses that santa anita wasn't real sharp about handling, the sales vet records being questioned (more than usual and some ugly allegations coming out), now this? horse racing is supposed to ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Some folks on Twitter say that Code of Honor was impeded by Maximum Security too and that he almost got knocked into the rail? I don't think that's fair though, Code of Honor went through the gap that opened up when MS veered out and when he came back in it got a bit tight. Twitter is a cesspool an...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Yes, I know. I'm sorry for causing you to be collateral damage in this debate. At least asterisks won't end the sport is my point. And neither will DQs, even in the sports biggest race. Or even the biggest sport! Sadly I had to watch the Rams give Brady a run for his money. Still upset over that one.
