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...

Re: Justify

Bob Baffert is the P. T. Barnum of horse racing. "There's sucker born every minute." He's a hustler, but I still like him - good trainer.

Re: In memoriam 2018

Sad news to report from Gail Thayer. Gail says that her 15-year-old flat-runner-turned steeplechaser Steppenwolfer has succumbed to colic. Though he ran only three times over hurdles, the gray son of Aptitude finished third in Barbaro's 2006 Kentucky Derby and fourth in the Belmont Stakes, to Jazil....

Re: Justify

Justify may have been a bit intimidated by the Ninja Warrior t-shirt the kid was wearing and figured he'd better behave himself. And, yes, he's so smart that he can read.

Re: Justify

I learned a couple of interesting things from the Baffert and Smith interviews on NBCSN. When explaining how Justify is not a cuddly 'Lab' like AP, Bob said the big colt 'isn't mean,' but that he's bitten EVERYONE in the barn.
