He may come here for the BC I have a feeling the BC will be going to a foreign horse this year
Welts on humans, as they are on horses, ARE the result of inflammatory byproducts causing vasodilation AT the point of that inflammation. ANY physiology book will tell you about trauma caused secondary inflammation and the blood chemicals released. Living in the world of make believe and NEVER EVEN BEING that close to a horse just finishing its run, OR, for that matter, the to the vets that report such injuries all the time, the REAL world interrupts your fantasy once again.
Have you never been in the winner's circle to observe, FIRST HAND, the red welts on the flanks of the many winners? A stick can ruin a horse as it DID with that poor gutted Rachel Alexandra...almost beat silly several times

Just didn't fire- and no excuses for her. She still ran down the stretch with her ears pricked- didn't seem to be full out at all. Really stinks because she could have really finished well if she actually ran hard. But I also don't think any horse was beating Bayern today once he had the lead. I hardly think she disgraced herself though- it's not like she finished dead last like Ria Antonia. She still finished well for not putting in any run whatsoever

  • cleclair1994 · The inside of the track was the place to be all day at Monmouth. Untapable was 3 wide all the way around and Bayern took advantage of the bias. Just look how Albano got up for second coming up the rail. Being wide was to her disadvantage. · 3 hours ago
  • Northport · I'm with the others saying she absolutely did put in a run, as Rosie going to the whip multiple times would suggest. No one was beating Bayern today, but if you can honestly say that she didnt run hard you may need a bigger tv · 3 hours ago
The winners of the Travers, Pacific Classic and BC Classic for 2014 are all WEST COAST horses. Guaranteed. :)
  • triple_double · Martin Garcia will definitely aboard Game On Dude in the Pacific Classics. Bullet Bob should make the changes for good. :) · 7 hours ago

Wildcat Red can't beat Untapable! I will tell you what will happen in this race, Bayern will be leading until the furlong pole, then this superstar filly will take charge and win by 2 lengths OR MORE. :-)
@sullivan I think I would rather have Johnny V on her than Rosie. What do you think? I just hope Rosie doesn't overuse the stick on her like she's notorious for and ruin her. I believe that's what happened to RA with Calvin letting into her
BAFFERTS NEW GOD..
I wish good luck to Jess's Dream, Cozmic One and all of Rachel & Zenyatta's little babies. Their mom's were both amazing fillys and I look forward to watching them race.
Goldencents, Big Macher, Declassify in the Bing Crosby.

Puttybadshark for the upset...9/2/7/1

His record is still a good one!
Just watched the replay. Bayern(thought it was pronounced as in "bay-earn") has a magnificent Cali rear. That is not how I usually say that. Rhymes with mass. Massive wide rear. Gorgeous.
Once I saw Bayern get the lead I knew it was over. He ran a nice race today. He reminds me a lot of game on dude- pure speed and can dominate any horse if he gets alone on the lead. Dangerous horse! Congrats to Baffert he's a good guy and I like him as a trainer
  • triple_double · Is Martin Garcia a better rider than Hall of Famer Mike Smith? I think so, especially on a frontrunner horse like Bayern & Game On Dude. I hope martin gets the nod this time on G.O.D. · 6 hours ago
Can cam this horse be losing his edge
Bayern just destroyed them today. We found out many things in this race.The 2 most important points. Number 1,anyone that can but refuses to race without Lasix has to seriously reconsider their mindset. I liked SI before i heard he was running without it. He easily became a toss. The other is that i seriously hope that once and for all that these ridiculous notions to run fillies with the boys are put to rest. That includes your Closed Hatches and Beholder. Today THE FILLY SAW WHAT IT TAKES TO BEAT RACEHORSES.

  • jonquil · "Ridiculous notions to run fillies with the boys"? That's quite odd to hear as I see fillies racing against colts fairly regularly and even beating them quite a bit. Just yesterday the filly Taghrooda effortlessly blasted away a field of colts including Breeders Cup Turf winner Magician in the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. · 7 hours ago
  • Mary Z. · Now, about the Lasix and Social Inclusion, when was he ever all that hot outside of the speed-favoring GP wins? How about it being one of those blinkers off-on-off type moves? A bit of desperation. Would have to ask the trainer, if one had his confidence. Just not good enough. Until someone pointed it out the other day, I hadn't even noticed the L or not for Social Inclusion and would not have considered him for the Haskell with or without it. And as far as someone bringing up the Royal Delta team as an example of running a horse(mare) without the L and winning, first off, they don't need it. Want to ask me, what about bleeders? Well, they still bleed straight through it, so you tell me. And I wonder if maybe it was best to have her off of the unnecessary diuretic for most of her last season because they wanted to send her overseas to be bred, and have the foal or foals respected?? I doubt it was an anti-Lasix activist move since that barn still runs their horses on it. Hope this makes the front page. Don't know how that is decided , what makes the cut. · 7 hours ago
Proving once again that the best 3 yos in the country are coming from California this year. Very nice run, impressed me a lot by stretching out beyond a mile like he did.
Will anyone tell me who was 2nd and 3rd?PLEASE!

  • Mary Z. · jockey2be, Generally, here at hrn, and common with other sites, the runners-up are "aw no", or "better luck next time", or "he was robbed or blocked". Best to check equibase quick or summary results. · 7 hours ago
I wonder if Bayern can carry his speed 9 furlongs?
