Re: Favorite race videos

My #1 pick-me-up is Zenyatta's 2009 Classic from the TVG feed, because the crowd audio is much, much better than ESPN. You can see it and the post-race comments on the www.CalRacing.com free replays. I sometimes intersperse it with the great post-race interviews from ESPN's coverage. My favorite rac...

Re: Zayat's Selective Outrage

I liked when he said something to the effect of "when you get a good one, you have to take care of them" during AP's run last year. So if they aren't a "good one" you don't have to take care of them? And your first grade 1 winner isn't a good one? Dropped down to claiming races in New Mexico, someho...

Re: 2015 Breeders' Cup News & Notes

The year that everyone uses as an argument against running at Santa Anita was one of the Euros' most successful years ever. Fact.

Re: The Gallop Racer Thread

Oh man, we need to start Video Game Horses Anonymous. I can relate to so many things you've said. I was pretty young when I got OOT, but I went through the scary temples simply so I could do more with Epona. I like to try to beat my time on the Lon Lon Ranch course, but I'm convinced :58 is the best...

Re: The Gallop Racer Thread

Of the racing games, I only liked Gallop Racer 2001 and G1 Jockey 3. But eventually GR gets old when you keep breeding identical, chestnut superhorses. What are some of the best non-racing horses you've ridden in video games? I like Epona in Ocarina of Time (best video game of all-time!) and Majora'...

We tried years ago to try to get on the same page but too many complaints from west coast horsemen. Breezing here is very rare and onl...

Re: Contacting connections of racehorses

Do people still write letters? lol I would try e-mailing first and some of the top trainers in the sport are great on twitter and facebook and are actually very responsive. I highly doubt a trainer is going to write you back. If you are looking for a trainer just call them. If you are a fan perhaps...
