  • Ann Maree · Certainly one of the feel-good stories of the year with the storybook happy "ending"! Thanks for providing details, and the video of Groupie Doll and Brass Hat are just priceless! Happy ending for the Bradleys, too, as their ability to go down the road for a visit has to cause them to breathe a sigh of relief. They won't have to say "goodbye" after all. Very pleased for all concerned! · 161 days ago ·

  • hoosierbred77 · I believe we have the one of the best if not the best 2 year-old colt in the country named Alumni. Broke his maiden at first time asking while equaling the track record at 5 furlongs. Has any of the top 2 year-olds in the country done that or have bettered his time? The answer is no! · 980 days ago ·

The naysayers, most of them, have been naysaying that 2010 was a bummer of a year for horse racing, and who am I to argue? If one of the year's highlights was Santa Anita trading a dirt track for a $10-million mistake, you can imagine the direction the rest of the year took. One crank debated whethe...Read More
