Hi rafirox...Since I'm officially a member of the stooge club. Lets talk football. Without Neymar and Thiago Brazil chances of beating Germany just got slimmer.

  • zxswordxz · rafirox...the best in the world is going home...lol..go Argentina. Lets give the german everything we got. · 16 minutes ago ·
  • icyhotboo · Germans are going to tough with those big fast men. What do I know though I had the Netherlands in 2010 and 2014. Other than size it seems pretty even as only Argentina incorporates strategy along with tactics of the S. American teams. I look at that off sides call again against Argentina. It looked good to me. · 12 seconds ago ·
Not sure if any one is interested, but there is a nice signed Richard Stone Reeves print of Forego, Kelso and John Henry together at Belmont Park. It was done in October 1983 when Kelso and Forego led the post parade for the JCGC. It was the only time the three great geldings were together as Kelso died from colic shortly after. It is offered on eBay from a good seller for $185 which a very good price for a discontinued and limited print. It looks to be in excellent condition and is offered for a few days on eBay.,

  • Buckpasser · Tom. Cindy Dulay Pierson has a column in about horseracing.com and states Kelso set or equalled 15 track records in his career. She is very good about research so I would take her word for this. I know Kelso was tough in sprints and would win by several lengths and was ridden many times by Hartack. · 44 minutes ago ·

*Bred in Florida, my lifetime record in the Sunshine State was 0-for-4. *I won my first race outside of Florida, and the Monmouth Park victory led directly to a grade 1 stakes attempt.Read More
Would love to see her in Coaching Club American Oaks then Travers in next two races. Her against Tonalist would be a great match up.
If any one is interested, his saddlecloth from the JCGC is up for auction on eBay. Price last time I looked was at $42 with about five or six days left in bidding

After back to back wins in the Jorvick Handicap at York and Duke of Edinburgh Handicap at Ascot, and a perfect 4 for 4 record to date in 2014, Arab Spring will make the jump from handicap to patent stakes level on Thursday in the G2 Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket(July). He's an overwhelming 3-2 favorite in the race with the international exchanges with stablemate Hillstar the 3-1 second choice and Dandino, Cavalryman, & Pether's Moon 8-1 co-third choices. If Arab Spring wins the Princess of Wales Stakes, and I believe he will, I would expect to see Sir Michael Stoute enter him in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes on July 26th. Stoute has never been shy about running more than one horse from his yard at a time in the King George. In 2009 he had Conduit, Tartan Bearer, & Ask in the field and in 2010 he had Harbinger & Workforce. I suspect he'll have Telescope, Arab Spring, and possibly Hillstar all 3 in this year's King George field, IMO.

  • jonquil · Just saw this! I'm glad you're okay and send my best wishes your way also. I'm very interested to see how Arab Spring does here - I much prefer Stoute's patient method and it'd be nice to se him reap the rewards of patiently training some talented horses, perhaps not quite of Harbinger's caliber, but certainly good enough to have a good chance here. As for Geoffrey Chaucer, I'm not sure there's anything at all wrong with him. I think he's a miler who prefers firmer ground. I'm not saying he's a great horse - the only hype I heard about was some unsourced rumour and I don't put any sort of trust in rumours like that. Other than that it was the usual Aidan O'Brien/Coolmore horse -- people tend to think their horses will always be great even for no reason, so I've kind of gotten used to it, heh. I'm used to strategically betting against Coolmore horses by now. · 2 hours ago ·
  • Mary Z. · ILTR, just now read your post. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Glad you are back. I just read along about the fine Euro racing, but thank you for the many updates. Always interesting. · 50 minutes ago ·

  • Mary Z. · You fell for it, animalnurse. Done to rile you up. I wouldn't be surprised if his name is on the 10 most undesirables at Z.com, and, by the way, how did you escape that swirling vortex? She's a big, easy target when the debate material wears thin, however some of his comments are of interest. Naps are just so much more appealing, so step it up, Mark. This isn't even second tier riling. I've seen the pros. · 2 hours ago ·
  • icyhotboo · "tmallios · If you are going to address me,have the courtesy of spelling my name right Mack Kennery" tmallios/ Just got to love this site, the king of the world who knows everything about everything, is rude, crude, and a phony dude, "doesn't give a rat's ass" about anything or anyone, has three friends and a cartoon character 998 in the world in which he calls friends, and will be down to one after a disagreement occurrs is worried about how his name is spelled. To clarify amigo998 who lives and dies by his every word, and hasn't got enough courage to insult people except through the peephole in the closet which measures 9X9X8 will never disagree with him. Unless of course medication brings them together.I doubt that will happen. Sorry Tamino998, I didn't mean to take so much of your 18 HRN day. Please when you and/or 998 reply come up with something more than ITALIAN BOO BOO ICE TEA etc. Lastly in your defense I would just say your a jerk with an inferiorty complex born a male gelding so you just have to be a know it all tough guy to live with yourself. You need to borrow some IQ points (a lot) to keep me amused anymore TM70. PS. Tamino998 sorry I couldn't get to you sooner but the storm knocked out the power and I got to you first as always, love ICE TEA BOO BOO ITALIAN · 1 hour ago ·

I met him and such a humble guy too. I hope he comes back to hoosier park in the fall to race
So underrated. I hope he gets better mounts. Such a hard working jockey!
