Re: Hessonite

But once she's sold, does that really guarantee she's retired, or can the new owner put her back into training?

Re: The BIG Sandy Stakes Day Handicapping Contest

Sounds good, but, good heavens, I already have trouble putting down all the required bits like date and stakes name and race number and horse number and horse name and alt numbers and names, and doing all that by first post time. I'll try to remember, and yes, it would be just neat to double the wa...

Re: Bill

I have to bring all the paperwork from the Saratoga cardio into the office here in Virginia to see how soon or if we get to see Dr. Adler. The hoops one has to jump through. It would sure be nice if both cardiologist would agree on the course of action. Sending prayers and good wishes your way and ...

Members only for "Horsin' Around"?

I sort of liked the old version having this folder restricted to "members only", but maybe that wasn't a majority opinion? What do you all think?

Re: In Memoriam

And another Belmont casualty - Discreet Code, who DNF on Saturday 9/14, and who per the NYRA "all incident types" database shows as having broken his RF leg and having been euthanized "in the necropsy area". Interestingly enough, he only shows up in the "all incident types" list but not under "equin...

Re: In Memoriam

That's a shame...the 8-year-old Unusual Heat gelding has been a reliable contender for a long time. What is going in with Belmont? Doesn't it seem like there have been a lot of fatalities so far, and we're hardly into the meeting? :( The latest casualty (Maui Mark) was listed as on the training tra...

Re: In Memoriam

We lost a Medaglia D'Oro baby today - Attenborough fractured a leg breezing at Belmont Park. RIP beautiful boy. :( Oh, dear. He didn't have a stellar racing record, but it is still dreadfully sad to learn that he is no longer with us. I saw him race at Saratoga this year. The injury must not have b...

I'm so very sorry about your loss, Curlin. It's a difficult loss to have to come to grips with, on a personal basis as well as it also being the end of an era.

I got my driver's license at about 10am on my 16th birthday. That was about 24 years ago, and I can count on one hand the times I've had to parallel park since then :D I used to be quite good at it back when I first got my licence, as probably 90% of the parking spots around me required parallel pa...

I think I'd prefer something that isn't the least bit political. Like Phoenix, but maybe that's a bit over the top.
