Re: Baffert now has the 3 shortest prices in the field

The Derby is becoming a joke. It just goes to show you owner's don't care if trainers have killed horses in the past with unnecessary drugs, all they care about is winning. The sport is becoming a joke. Why don't we just reward Santa Anita for all their breakdowns while we are at it, and move the B...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

Bellafina is my pick, based on her dominance this year, but the Oaks is an odd race - as in I never get it right. I also like Lady Apple and Liora, and if Dunbar Road gets in I might throw her a couple bucks because she looks like she could be any kind.

Fiber Sonde could be Unbridled’s Song’s best son at stud!!!
Although it doesn’t hurt to be out of the same mare who produced Speightstown.
He still has a way to go before he catches up to Midshipman.
Was being sarcastic...

Re: Apple Blossom (gr. I)

She ran huge last year in the KY Oaks and then ate the Canadian boys for lunch in the Queens Plate - then they kept going on her. Turns out May-June ‘18 was her up-cycle. They should chill out on her and lay low, run her in some Can-bred filly and mare stakes so she can get some confidence back. If ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

20th spot is held by a Japanese horse who has 19 points. What the hell? I never pay attention to these horses (or the UAE Derby winner) - automatic toss! - but, seriously, he has 19 points. That seems unfair.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Country House is one of those horses who runs in the top 5, because he’s peaking just righhhhhhht. Or, maybe it’s a lot to ask of him at this point. :?: Before this weekend they were sure of his ability to get 10 furlongs, and to run back 3 weeks twice. Sounds like he’s tough and they expect him to ...

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Quip won the Oaklawn Park Handicap with Lone Sailor in second and Pioneer Spirit in third. This was Quip’s first win since the Tampa Bay Derby, I think. Really like the horse and hope he can put a good year together. Lone Sailor is also a horse I liked last year, so I am hoping for big things from ...

Re: Arkansas Derby G1 Million Dollars

Would love to see Mandella or Mott win one, for many reasons. Mandella's press conference would be hilarious, since he likes to tell you ,deadpan serious, how incompetent he is. Both he and Mott would probably be so excited it would be one for the ages. Agreed. I’m a huge fan of both trainers. Alwa...

Multiple graded SW Ask the Moon’s MDO filly, Sundaysatthebeach, broke her maiden yesterday at Keeneland, race 5.
5th in that race was Sport’n Forty, a 1/2 to SW Ghostly Presence.

Omaha Beach has continued to blossom and looks fantastic but everyone loves Baffert, so I hope Improbable goes off as the favourite and OB can beat another Baffert favourite. Nothing to go against OB here, so he’s my choice over Country House and Long Range Toddy. I can’t tell if you really like Om...

He's in the Count Fleet Sprint at Oaklawn, I'm sure you've caught that. Should be an interesting race, Whitmore will be coming. . .
I am rooting for Whitmore. He is one of my favourites, and will run his usual tough race. The gelding has some serious heart and afterburners!

Elate should improve off the last and likely needed that race. Hard to knock Bisou though, she is awesome and should also run well. Dead heat?
