Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Mighty 15yo Carrickboy (IRE) finished 3rd in the 6th at Willowdale today, an amateur apprentice timber race, but he and the rest of the field were distanced some 43 3/4 lengths (who counted?) by the 12yo Katnap (FR).

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Local hopeful Alwaysmining is quite the character: Before he gets bored and heads back inside his stall, I pull a reporter’s notebook from my back pocket. The wire rings at the top are interesting – to a horse – and he wrinkles his nose as I move the notebook back and forth. The space between a hors...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

Both Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani have tweeted their disapproval of the steward's decision. This is confirmation that the correct decision was made.

Re: Korea Breeding

So Maximum Security’s mother and full sister are in Korea? What a shame. What I find a bit disturbing is the nonchalant attitude towards the situation by those folks who have enabled the Koreans to make their purchases. Lots of blame all around, but then the same crap goes on in Japan and here in t...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I think we ought to give some sort of award to War of Will. If you follow his hoofsteps in that slow-mo video, you can see him change his stride a bit to avoid the back legs of Maximum Security. I think that took some amazing athleticism to not clip heels and go down, which likely would have taken ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I will always love the horses in my signature and will cherish memories of several other horses not listed. But I'm done with horse racing with or without the disqualification today. When I had to deal with the most controversial NFC championship and then the first DQ in Kentucky Derby history 3.5 ...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I'm done with horse racing. Second time I got robbed from these "officials" this year. I had money on the Saints over the Rams and they didn't call pass interference. But in a race where Max didn't interfere with a 65-1 longshot, here they did. This result pretty much is telling me never to bet on ...

Re: 2019 Triple Crown

So, hypothetically what would happen if Country House somehow manages to win the Preakness in Belmont? Besides hell freezing over and pigs sprouting wings.

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

The thing is, it doesn't matter if Country House was directly impacted. If Maximum Security impeded any of the other horses he had to be DQ'd, and the rest of the horses moved up in placing.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Most of what I'm hearing from the non-horsey public about this on the rest of the internet has been surprisingly in favor of the DQ. It was obvious that MS committed a disqualifying foul that could have been disastrous. Regardless of whether he was the "best" horse or however times this kind of inci...
