Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Bernadiva (Bernadini x Evening Jewel) finished 5th today in the Tropical Park Oaks. Even though she's raced at Gulfstream before I never noticed a daughter of Evening Jewel in any races - really liked her mom).

Re: Clasico del Caribe

Ooh, I didn't realize the Serie Hipica del Caribe was at Gulfstream this year. It makes sense though, there's no way Camarero can host the event after all the damage it sustained from Maria. It was really a fun day, a lot of people flew in for the race and there was a large number of local Puerto R...

Clasico del Caribe

It rained heavy early and is still dreary but there is a huge crowd - other than for Florida Derby day I've never seen so many people here. A totally different vibe, fun atmosphere, but they're totally trashing the place.

Re: BC Complaint Thread

Had 2 great days at the track, my only complaint would be the lack of food choices available unless you made it to the infield which was quite a hike. It was packed today but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Re: TBC Breeders Cup Watch Party/Discussion Thread

Also, this is not news at all, but holy hell Del Mar is in such a beautiful setting Waaaaay too many empty seats on that grandstand and apron. Apparently it was practically a ghost town on Friday, slowly filling up today but nowhere close to Churchill or Keeneland. From where I'm sitting it looks p...

Re: Songbird

I don't think flying between coasts again did her any good today. I assume she's staying for the Zenyatta then Distaff at Del Mar and hope she rebounds being at home.

Re: Arrogate

It does seem mental to me. Maybe that Dubai win hurt more than it looked and he doesn't want to exert himself that hard again, I think he could've won that race if he really wanted to.

Re: Zenyatta News

Sad. I wonder if one of them retains rights to the racing stable, the breeding stock and/or they get to pick and choose? I honestly have half wondered if this is why Coz is still training/running. He's an asset to be divided in the divorce (which tbh, he needs to be gelded and made into a nice hunt...

Re: Whitney (G1)

Steve Asmussen said the Woodward here on 9/2 is a real possibility for Gun Runner. Would give him 9 weeks to the BC Classic. A possible for Arrogate too... which would be good for NYRA. Doesn't everybody want that? At least Baffert knows Arrogate likes Saratoga. Del Mar??? Don't know about Del Mar ...

Re: Zenyatta News

Sorry to hear they are divorcing, kind of surprised even though it looked like they were divesting their interest in their stock, the guy is 82 (why bother?), gonna assume he's got something else going on - glad to see Ann will keep updating on Z. Regardless of what's going on, they really have been...

Is there a replay somewhere? Calracing.com has all CA replays for free the day after the race. Some, but not always all, can also be found on Bloodhorse sometime after as well: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/race/USA/DMR/2017/8/2/4/race-4-msw-at-dmr-on-8-2-17 By coincidence they had Zenyat...

Re: Ziconic

this little guy is killing me - so close today - really wanted to see him do it - but he was trying. He was trying :( , just too far back and goes too wide for a horse his size I think, I do think he looks better on dirt if he gets another chance. How many times do they try before giving up?

Re: Ziconic

I think putting him back on dirt and a mile is good for him if they can get him out of the gate running, not sure he was as suited for grass as everyone thought just because competition may have looked easier(?). While neither of Z's sons proved to be the horse a fan of her may have dreamed of, I do...

Whatever it was, he looked more like a 'racehorse' at least. I hope he breaks his maiden in next out and maybe tries dirt again after that if the change in attitude wasn't due to surface.
