What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

*I began my career racing exclusively on one coast, and finished it running only on the other coast. *As a three-year-old, I was not a champion although I did split decisions with that year’s champion.Read More

  • Mary Z. · Nikki's Sandcastle and Newsdad, too. Good field. I was so ticked off about Nikki's Sandcastle's loss on turf at GP a couple back. Theme around here, my ticked-off-itude. Keeps one coming back, wanting to be right. · 19 minutes ago ·

One of the greats. Probably the number one stud producing more top champions then any other stud.
We've all been on both sides of an inquiry or objection. Sometimes it's our horse that caused the trouble and other times our horse was on the receiving end.Read More

  • Jay S. · Here's my take on it, having watched both views at least 20 times while the stewards were deliberating. WTC gets to GL and they do rub. The head-on view shows two things clearly: 1. GL turns his head to the the outside and attempting to veer towards WTC, but WTC is so much heavier and powerful that he doesn't budge. 2. WTC does veer slightly to the inside, but very little. This is verified by looking at the perfectly straight tractor grate marks in the dirt. Will only moves to the inside for about 3 to 4 grate lines, and those lines are only 2-3 inches apart. During this, GL is not being slowed-down. Just as WTC clears GL, Revolutionary decides to quickly veer outside over 4-6 feet and multiple grate lines. This causes Rev's hind end to brush the nose of GL, and Gary Stevens checks him quite sharply. As WTC clears others he begins to move to the inside without disturbing anyone. Rev and GL are both trained by the same trainer and the winner's share of 600 large was at stake. Everyone knows that WTC is my favorite and will think I'm just taking-up for my boy, but that's the way I saw it. If and when the front tower view ever hits the net, folks can view and agree or disagree. The only thing I know for fact is...the stewards agreed. · 1 hour ago ·

  • LennyGeorge · I sturdied to be a steward years back..I feel it has to be blatant and HAS to interfere with another horse winning with I bad bump ..Hit or drift in to cause the other horse to break stride or take up sharply just common sense prevails · 14 minutes ago ·
