Re: The Million Dollar G1 Whitney Stakes

Imperative? He last ran in April's Charles Town Classic, where he finished 8th and last. He has not won in over two years. I fear his present connections are going to run this venerable gelding into the ground...until something breaks. The nine-year-old was once a very good racehorse, and he deserv...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

Sadly, it has been reported that Shadow Warrior , an 11 yo son of A.P.Indy, had to be euthanized due to aggression issues at his home in Texas (LoneStar Outreach to Place Ex-Racers - LOPE). Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare facebook page has made available a podcast with Lynn Reardon of LOPE detailin...

Re: Stallion News

Such distressing news for certain. I wonder if the stress of travel and quarantine is too much, will he just remain in New Zealand permanently. I know Ribot ended up in the US permanently because of issues flying him home. Ribot was pretty much nuts, right? Flat out nuts, or crazy like a fox - who ...

To quote Mark Twain, Saturday will be "hot enough to melt brass doorknobs" and I'm sure the industry is being especially careful these days. Better safe than sorry is the new credo in TB racing. Always should have been. I'll be extremely curious to see how Monmouth handles this situation on their ve...

Re: Welcome to Arizona Downs

Well, that didn't last long either - the suspension of racing, that is. Track reopens for business this Saturday (7/20/19). Have not heard if Michael Wrona will be back.

Maybe? Perhaps there is some sort of memorial/celebration of Rick Violette, and that's what prompted the NY guys to share their memories?

Any word on the horse that fell right at the line in race 10 yesterday (Friday)?
