Re: Stronach's $12-million race a go

Are they improving the rest of the card? I doubt people will pay $100+ if 1/2 the card is Maiden and Claiming races like this year's Donn card. Which brings up another question. Are they going to move all the other stakes races to the Pegasus card? Or is he putting the Pegasus with the Sunshine Mil...

It's looking like the pace may be insane, especially if Nyquist draws inside again. Am I going to have to bet on Mubtaahij again??

Re: Awesome Again

Apologies to Beholder I was thinking older males when I posted... 8-) No offense, but I don't consider Dortmund in the same category, and his number is up anyway. I actually almost didn't list Dortmund because I more or less agree with you but I also can't dismiss him because he is a legitimate rac...

I think Melatonin is on the shelf and won't make it. This morning: http://www.drf.com/news/preview/melatonin-sizzles-six-furlong-workout-breeders-cup-classic I sit corrected. I have much respect for Chrome and think he's a real solid horse (and a vastly improved one from 2014), but IMHO he appears ...

Re: Awesome Again

In regards to Exaggerator, I read a tweet that he was sent to WinStar for some 'R&R' so basically retirement in 3, 2.... Kind of a shame because he likes SA and would probably get a nuclear pace to run at in the Classic. But with the schedule he's had, not surprising that there isn't anything left ...

We don't even necessarily need to be talking about hitting the horse. He hardly even moved his hands until just outside the eighth pole.

Re: Woodward Stakes

I'm actually very happy, this is Shaman's Ghost first G1 win, and his second Graded win as an older horse. He's won at 1 mile 1/2, 1 mile 1/4, 1 mile 1/8th and 1 mile 1/16th. He's proving to be a very versatile boy. I hope they keep him in training for next year, he could be developing into somethi...

Re: To all the grown men here

If you weren't here during the War Emblem days, you truly missed out. Never seen so much back on forth on whither or not a horse was ugly or not. When I hear of an ewe neck that's all I think of. Having now seen the horse in person (up close - 02 BC doesn't count), he's not one I would pick out of ...

What (or who) exactly do you mean by this?

I feel like you and Commy are saying more the same things than you're not, but without knowing what you mean I can't really tell for sure.
