JUSTIFY - Smooth and easy in final pre-Belmont Work LOVE THIS "Before he was lightly raced, and people were saying he couldn't win the Derby because he was lightly raced. Now he can't win the Belmont because he's raced too much—it's always something. But he's seasoned now. He should be up for it." A...

Re: Justify

I believe I was the first to say Justy would win the Triple Crown - May 18th. The Racing Gods only get angry if mere mortals are backing an undeserving horse. They have Scat Daddy as counsel. I'm not the least bit concerned that I've jinxed the horse. He's going to win, and that's that. 8-)

It's not work if it makes you happy. Happy for you.

Re: Justify

Believing in your horse is great, but being downright rude when other disagree and saying there is no way he can lose is tiring. (not saying you are doing this, just the feel I get from many of the horse's fans in general) Who's being rude? Example? I said various fans of this horse from various pl...

Re: Justify

Ballerina, you’re being incredibly rude to be honest. Treve was not replying to you in a challenging manner and yet you posted such a snarky reply. As for fans questioning the athlete, what is wrong with that?? How boring would sports be if fans only praised their favourites. If Treve tells me I wa...

Re: Justify

Laisex, and it’s not that he won’t win but you can’t compare horse’s from this era to that, mainly for that reason. Oh, that's right. They didn't use drugs like Lasix or Winstrol back then. :-) I'm a little hazy and it's admittedly not my expertise but I thought Winstrol has been around for a long ...

And Lasix is still used today except in 2 year old races in the BC if, indeed, that's still in vogue. Steroids were legal up until Rick Dutrow opened his yap about Big Brown.

Re: Justify

Sounding like a broken record, as well - good, sound, healthy horses can fully recover when given a 3 week break. Not comparing, as I know that would upset a lot of people, but sticking to my belief that good, sound, healthy horses will prevail when raced regularly. Secretariat raced 6 times in a 3 ...
