Portland Meadows - R.I.P.

Well , after 73 years of racing, Portland Meadows will join the ranks of the fallen. Like Suffolk Downs later this year and Hazel Park last year, redevelopment continues to take its toll. I guess that leaves Emerald Downs and a few Fair circuits to carry on in the Pacific Northwest. One track too ma...

Re: 2019 Dubai World Cup Carnival

Good 'ol Gunnevera. You don't see him in the winners circle much, but he continues to fatten that wallet.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

The Santa Anita racing office late on Thursday sent an alert to horsemen that said that jockeys and exercise riders may use the whip for "corrective safety measures only," effective immediately. What they are calling a "cushion crop" - is that the standard crop that has been in use all along? WarBi...

Re: Rockport Birdie and a few others

I tried finding some information on them as well, but came up empty. Will continue with the detective work though - maybe something will turn up. Thought for sure that old Trelawny was heading into retirement, and was surprised to see the workout posted. Best of luck to him - he's a popular and good...

And intact, no less. I was wondering if anyone else would notice that. Looks like he was a pretty decent racer in...

Re: 2019 Fillies + Mares

I hope that there are more folks around here watching this fine filly. Late Night Pow Wow won her 9th in a row yesterday, and would be 12 for 12 if she had not just missed in a race last April.

WarBiscuit, I saw your post on Princesa Dorada, and saw her results last night. She beat one other horse. She was 78 lengths back when she finished, the horse she beat was 79 lengths back. Hopefully her connections decide to have some mercy on her and not put her through that again. Wonder if Carib...

Along with Hogy , another old millionaire running this weekend is 11yo Slim Shadey , seeing if he can "right the ship" at Gulfstream in a claiming race.
