Re: Saratoga 2018

Whoa girl, for all the crazy BS I write here that you could rip me about, this wasn't one of those times. It was intended to mean that no matter the seats, no matter the horses, no matter the weather, no matter the gambling, when you look back just a year or two when attending the Saratoga meet was...

Re: Saratoga 2018

Life is good. 'nuff said, enjoy! "nuff said"???? OH, I'm not allowed to say anything more about my time in TOGA? OK - didn't mean to bore you. Just thought some people would be interested in the different prices for seat tickets. Used to be Travers was a different price. Then Whitney became a diffe...

Re: Saratoga 2018

Ticket and seating prices for TOGA https://www.saratoga.com/race-track/tickets/ I'm stoked - strolled over to ticket window on Tuesday, I got good seats for every Saturday including Whitney and Travers, Sunday's Coaching Club American Oaks and Sunday and Monday closing weekend. Yesterday got my park...

Re: Dutrow Request to Amend License Revocation Denied

The "board" wanted to show racing fans that they meant business cleaning up the sport. Yeah, sure. They picked the softest target and let it drop from there. I'd like to know how a suggested 90 day suspension morphed its way into 10 years.

Re: Dutrow Request to Amend License Revocation Denied

He was dealt a bad hand from day one. It shocks me to the core the number of people who would deny a man his way of making a living. He was/is not the ghoul that haters make him out to be. You can scream at me from now 'til doomsday. You WILL NOT convince me that this man is evil and a threat to hor...

Re: July 15 is... "National I Love Horses Day"

I'm a fan of so many - coming on to them early in their careers -Curlin, Big Brown, Rachel, Wise Dan, Gun Runner, and Justify. I love every single one of them, but my heart horse is Wise Dan. Can't rightly explain it. Just a nice, nice boy with a strong work ethic who wanted to win. After seeing him...

Thanks for the good wishes. Health has been wonky lately, but somehow it improves a few days after I get here. Not sure what it is.

Re: Justify

Isn't it possible that Justify did lose some weight right after the Belmont, but then put it right back on? From things I've read, the big colt has an appetite like a Rose Bowl football team chowing down at Lawry's pre-game all-you-can-eat fest. :lol: It's quite possible that he lost weight after t...

I also wrote it could be a result of injury. Jeez! Actually nobody disagrees with you! :lol: I only thanked Treve cause she explained further. Great if the weight loss thing isn't true! And yes, I do hope that we get to see him race again. The timing is just really bad unfortunately. "nobody disagr...

My dad does not have to struggle anymore with Alzheimer's. He lost his battle early this morning, 3 days before his 89th birthday. Love you forever dad. A dreadful disease. Like a picture puzzle, a piece of the brain disappears almost every day. We went through it with my mother-in-law. My poor hus...

Re: Justify

Oh, and the losing weight bit (in case you skipped over the post I posted). Zoe Cadman reported yesterday that Justify weighed in at 1271 lbs. 2 lbs. more than he weighed before the Belmont. Fast weight loss recovery.

Re: Justify

Filling, from what I've read, can be a result of inactivity especially in a high functioning horse like Justify. It can also be the result of a deep seated injury or infection diagnosed by hi-tech imaging. It is not career ending or life threatening. I do believe Justify will run again. He just won...
