  • icyhotboo · "Game On Dude saw his form deteriorate when it mattered most" nope, his form didn't deteriorate, this horse always runs the same race win or lose. He tells you what time he'll run, what internal fractions, what position he'll have, and what lane he'll be in throughout. The best part of it is, he does all this before the race, every single time he runs without deviation. That's a step up from merely being a horse for a year. How about "bettors delight" for all time award. · 110 days ago ·

  • buckpasser · I read that McClain didn't know anything about wagering and Hayward made her COo handling financial and wagering operations and surprise surprise there was a huge wagering scandal and subsequent lawsuits in the tens of millions of dollars so that the NYRA posted a loss inspite of all the casino money. Hayward picked her for her affirmative action credentials to cover her tracks no more no less. I am sure I will get heat for that comment but I've been around NYCity politics along time and I know how the game is played. · 468 days ago ·

  • AnnaK · Would love a Triple Crown, mostly because it would pull people in to the races, (already started I like to think), plus IHA is such a strong red engine and Mario is excellent, that it just might be. Can't see Dullahan doing it, 27 in the last q good to know, that fancy inefficient leg work, so IHA and UR and anyone else can duke it out. · 699 days ago ·

  • AnnaK · Jerry Bailey's comment about his BCC win that Drosselmeyer was like a bike, if you stop pedalling he stops running was pretty interesting. All that durable clay that just needed a lot of kneading. He was a lovely 2yr old at Keeneland, can imagine maybe a good broodmare sire? Something that shows up further on down the line. · 732 days ago ·

If looking silly is going to be the objective -- well, they probably could look even sillier, couldn't they?

Plans for recent Breeders' Cup Classic (gr.

Dross won one GR1 and a Listed stakes......but also finished behind ( A sprinter) Jackson's bend in the GR3 Skip away....this horse is not of the same Caliber.

I have just finished reading the book Bred to Run, by Mike Helm. It is about Mike’s account of a one-week visit to Claiborne Farm in 1992. In a 1:1 interview with Seth Hancock, Helm indirectly asked, why is there no stamina in US bloodstock anymore? Seth had some very interesting theories, one of wh...Read More

  • cugel the clever · Simple law of supply and demand. Most of the big-money and big-prestige races are at 10 furlongs or less. The biggest races on the calendar for older horses and late-year 3yo races should be at 12 furlongs or more. That would certainly bring stamina back into the breeding and training philosophy of the sport. · 806 days ago ·
  • cugel the clever · A good start would be to move the Pacific Classic, Santa Anita Handicap, Breeders Cup Classic, and Travers to 12 furlongs; and to make the BC Marathon one of the premier races with a purse of at least 2 million dollars instead of its current status as a freak show novelty race which attracts grade 3 stakes winners and optional claimers. · 806 days ago ·
Here are my picks in my favorite Eclipse Award Divisions. I am trying to enjoy what 2011 gave us before heading into the 2012 Road to the Roses, but that has been hard to do with the Sham Stakes already in the book. But I managed to find a little time to think Eclipse Awards. Read More
