  • Exterminator · Perry Martin must've gotten PR advice from Coburn... Karma will come back to bite them in the butt, preferably in the Breeders' Cup Classic. · 4 hours ago
  • hannahWTC · It is a little greedy. And it would help the sport. But why inconvenience the horse? You might as well try to get some money out of it. Who cares about the owners, anyway? I still love the horse, nothing will change that. You are not a true fan if you let this turn you off to California Chrome. · 4 hours ago
Can't wait for the dirt to come back. This track used to be on my wagering agenda, BUT for the last several years. Saratoga has received just about ALL my business in that time frame.
Wow cant wait for Del Mar Biggest fields ive seen in years for west coast racing exciting
As the ownership of California Chrome and Del Mar square off, it begs the question: do racehorse owners owe anything to the fans?Read More

  • duchess via Disqus · In my mind the only thing that race horse owners owe to fans is to take the best possible care of their horses - from the very first moment they own him or her to the end of their ownership - and in fact, possibly beyond that if in later years the horse turns up in trouble, such as being found at a kill auction. While not legally obligated to help a horse in trouble I strongly believe that former owners are morally responsible to provide help to that horse. Anything beyond that - whether facebook pages, blogs, appearances at tracks, etc. are frosting on the cake for fans. That communication is good for the fans and for the sport, but it is not really "owed" to anyone. I personally greatly appreciate any communication about the well being of my favorites (I am very grateful to the connections of Zenyatta, Rachel Alexandra, and Wise Dan, for example for their updates on my darlings but I do not feel that it is "owed" to me). I do think that the California Chrome connections should hire a PR consultant or take some sort of PR class. It has become apparent that they are not well versed in such things. In this case, all they had to say is something like "The colt is in training and the appearance does not fit in with his training schedule." There. Done. People might be disappointed but they would understand. Nothing else had to be said. · 32 minutes ago

In my opinion the proof is in the pudding. Chrome won the SA derby in over a full second faster then Untapable.
Did anyone else see her race at Gulfstream today? After winning by daylight, she fell just after the finish. Looked horrible. I saw her jockey get up, and moved towards her, and out of the way of finishing horses. Looked like GOTR stayed down. I feared the worse. But then, low and behold, she was led into the winners circle, without her jockey. No word on jock's condition--or what happened to the horse. I see she was also claimed out of that race. Anyone with any more details, please post!

  • travel_vic · The change here is akin to the two distinct ways tracks versus regular TV show races. Tracks split the image: pan of the field + close up of the pacesetters from gate to wire. TV breaks up the perspective so often that you lose the continuity of the whole race. NEWER is not always better. · 14 hours ago
  • Sysonby via Disqus · I've been logging in every day just to see if this thing is fixed yet. But not fixed and no one even saying they're working on it, not leaving me much choice. · 2 hours ago

Sustained an injury during workout and has been retired from racing, according to DRF
Wasn't he fun? Happy retirement from racing and successful new career, or heck, just have fun with that, too ;)
That will teach them not to run against older in a stakes race.
Returns friday at del mar
Jeranimo has been retired and will stand at stud in 2015, according to DRF
on July 13, Bern Identity worked 5F at Monmouth Park on Fast Dirt in :59.80 h finishing 1/25.

Good looking renewal for the G1 Prix Jean Prat on Monday afternoon at Chantilly. Only 7 runners entered, but there's not a whole lot on paper between the form of the top 4 in the market. Also not a great deal between the ante-post prices of those 4 which are Shifting Power, Charm Spirit, Prestige Vendome, & Muwaary. This may be Shifting Power's best chance of winning at G1 level this season, but I think Charm Spirit is the one that could possibly make that a difficult task for Shifting Power, IMO.
Back in the winner's circle today at a mile in the 8th at Ellis Park.
