Re: 2019 Triple Crown

Tacitus for the belmont! 100%, looked like he was just hitting his stride in the last furlong, and being by Tapit doesn't hurt his chances in the Belmont. I like Anothertwistafate in the Preakness. I'm going to watch the race at Pimlico this year and can't wait! I'm assuming it will downpour bc why...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

boy, bye Maximum Security's error could have resulted in War of Will and Long Range Toddy going down. Leaving them in a heap as another 15 horses galloped over them. What's worse for the sport, showing that an error that could have resulted in a catastrophic pile up on racing's biggest day is totall...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Agreed. Watching the replay, War of Will looked like he was about to run right over top of Maximum Security's butt. It is very lucky that he didn't clip heels with him. Had he fallen right there, yikes. And that was the point... yes, they were obviously close when he came out but they didn't clip h...

I know this will excite everyone!

Einstein, the African Grey Parrot, picked War of Will! It's right on you tube now. I'm sure you are all so excited!

You mean you're not? :lol:
I am very interested in what Einstein has to say. Even though I disagree.

Re: Omaha Beach out!

Would the draw reins he has been in for some training sessions possibly have contributed to the entrapment? I'm not a vet, but in all of the years I have used draw reins, I have never had or heard of a horse get a trapped epiglottis from them. It's pretty common in Thoroughbreds, and in a lot of ju...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

You can stop reading the article when it states that he has spent $850,000,000 of what remained of his own money on passion projects. The rest does not matter.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Anothertwistafate to bypass Kentucky Derby Trainer Blaine Wright said Tuesday that Anothertwistafate, 23rd on the 2019 Kentucky Derby points list, will bypass the race in favor of the Preakness Stakes, for which connections have a fees-paid trip and free entry. Wright said Anothertwistafate will fl...

Not really any stand out names in that list, besides Canada, maybe? And Adonis. No Camelots, John F Kennedys, George Washingtons.

Re: Matings 2019

Those were freak things, though. I think it would be a shame if they didn't try again. Having a foal die in a paddock accident and another die from meconium aspiration is just bad luck.

It's a shame Redoute's Choice is gone, he would have been an obvious contender. Snitzel seems like the next best thing.

But then there's good ol' Lonhro.

I feel like what Justify lacks in soundness and being 'beautifully balanced', he makes up in the whole being by Scat Daddy thing. Pioneerof the Nile was a great horse and stallion, but Scat Daddy throws G1 winners over 5f on turf in England or 12f on dirt in America. I wonder how many of Coolmore's ...
