Re: The VENT Thread

Everybody move to Tampa! It is 85 degrees here right at this moment. Bring some snow! You can throw snowballs at me for telling you about it! I just took the dog for a walk. Wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Sure wish we'd get another cool-down like we did on Thanksgiving. :) I hear ya. I would like to...

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

Zaikov (3yo c, Distorted Humor-Wait A While), who won his only start very impressively back in March, returns in R6 at Gulfstream on Friday.

Re: Stronach: Eliminate Race Day Meds and Sport Will Flouris

As noted by other, tracks can not set medication rules, states do. All the more reason we need a National Governing body. But could his tracks card races where the conditions of entry were no race-day medications? You mean do exactly what the Breeders Cup did with lasix and two year old races? This...

We adopted Buddy, a chocolate Lab, last month and he is working out wonderfully. Our vet thinks he's 7 or 8. He makes this hilarious rumbly noise when he's really excited that is just a hoot.

Re: Time For A Change

I was fortunate enough to meet him at Three Chimneys in Oct 95. What a sweetheart...unlike his barnmate across the way, Dynaformer. We were scratching Time For A Change's forehead and I remember the groom telling us we would lose a finger if we tried that with Big D.

TVG is on...for those who have the channel. It's 602 on DirecTV. They just showed the stretch drive of the Clark, but not the whole race. If you can wait before you hear or read the results, I presume Bloodhorse will have a video of the race up on their site in a little while. The video is up: http...

Metro has raised nearly $45K for retired racehorses-how awesome is that?

He could have been a good source of stamina and a nice outcross for all the Mr. P and A.P. Indy bloodlines if he had stood at stud here. Never would have happened in a million years, though.
