Is this really devastating and something people should be "gutted" over? The horse is alive and well. We don't need Monmouth tweeting that they send their condolences. This sport has issues. I think "condolences" is not an appropriate word, but I'd be devastated and gutted. I'm sitting here with a ...
I do tend to stumble upon things. Two days ago I stumbled over the dogs and broke my wrist.

The problem is spotting the .1%. ;) I prefer Game Winner of the Bafferts. I thought Roadster's return was really good, considering the doubts raised by his disappointing DM Futurity, and his kick in the SA Derby impressed me. I just think he has the potential to be discombobulated by a big field and...

If they're going to offer guaranteed slots for Japan and Europe (not to mention the UAE Derby) why not include one for the highest-ranked filly? Well, because there isn't a potential "bet on fillies" market to be mined. Otherwise it would make just as much sense.
Contrarian that I am, I like Game Winner. I hope he's been brought along slowly to peak the first Saturday in May. I think Roadster might run into conditioning issues although "two preps" is a mantra. The one thing I don't like about Omaha Beach is that he was fairly beaten by Nolo Contesto, who did...
Thanks for the anecdote, Curtis--Quack was a son of my first favorite, T.V. Lark. I was touched to hear Caton Bredar say recently that perhaps her all-time favorite was another offspring of T.V. Lark, the wonderful gray filly Pink Pigeon!

Withholding Info (Midnight Lute x Executiveprivilege) won a NW1X at Santa Anita on Sunday; she's 2 for 3 with a 2nd.

Up For Review was fatally injured in today's Grand National after being brought down at the first fence by Vintage Clouds....Tiger Roll won the race. Up For Review is the Nationals first fatality since Synchronised and According to Pete in 2012 Was he the one who fell early and as far as I could se...
It's a tough game if you can't make it at the top level. I haven't thought about Kevin Krigger in years but that's on me. He was a decent rider who apparently couldn't crack through.
I feel that Game Winner has been ridden very conservatively which may play into his wide trips "I'm on the best horse, so. . ." I also think that was more true of Improbable in the Rebel, as Drayden Van Dyke rode him as if he couldn't lose. I loved Game Winner last fall but I'm rather tepid at this ...
