I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Del Mar has made a decision about Jerry Hollendorfer.

Well, I guess it's time to retire, Jerry.

I don't always agree with verdicts coming out of our court systems, but this time I've got to believe JH is a slam dunk winner, just a question of which deep pockets he and his attorney take aim at.

JH assistant Dan Ward's name in the program?

Maybe Hollendorfer does have the right to take his case to court. But the downside for him will be that every drug violation, every horse injury or death, every horse for whom he was responsible that ended up at a kill buyer auction, will be made very public for all to read.
He might win the case, but both his career and reputation would be dog meat. :oops:

All but about 17 trainers nationwide wouldn't be too keen for their lifetime record to be opened for public scrutiny.
JH needs to exercise his rights and demand they show 'n tell him what they've got on him, other than the obvious headlines.

Makes NO SENSE to me that TSG pulled this crap on the LAST of the Santa Anita meet- to what end was Belinda striving for? THIS is a bad bad situation and could get very ugly
May they run with the WIND

PETA and its tool the Los Angeles Times won't care that this could easily have happened in a pasture. IIRC one of Zenyatta's foals suffered a fatal injury in a paddock collision.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

really wish Monmouth would cancel tomorrow - Saratoga and so many other tracks back there are canceling races tomorrow because of the high heat and humidity - really wish Monmouth would too.


I am sick to read about those poor horses at del mar this morning - what an absolutely horrifying and tragic thing - so very sorry for those poor animals.

I was sitting in a doctor's waiting room late this morning, and the office TV had the news on. So I got to hear the news about the two horses in the middle of a bunch of people...who probably had no idea why I suddenly exclaimed, "Aw crap!" :(

FWIW
72 degrees today.
A light sweater/jacket may be appropriate when the late afternoon ocean breeze picks up.

I bet some of the trainers back east are wishing they were out here instead of sweltering at The Steambath...I mean The Spa. :P ;)
