on July 5, General A Rod worked 4F at Churchill Downs on Fast Dirt training in :52.00 b finishing 22/23.
I heard that according to trainer Romans, General A rod should have been scratched due to breaking a rule. Anyone know what happened and have thoughts or ideas about this?

  • myjumper21 · Lol yeah, Coburn is just bitter and being a bit irrational. It's obvious that fresh horses aren't the problem even though they sure don't make things easy. · 203 days ago
  • jockey2be · He was late coming to the paddock(for tests?) I think?I think Romans was overreacting. · 203 days ago

  • tmallios · Louis i am assuming your key is A Rod. If you can drop 2 dimes on a box and like Arod that much. I'd go the extra $400 and do a $20 wheel up and down. If you can get A Rod in the 1/2 spot and Chrome runs out. You might be looking at a minimum $500 payout for a $2 wager.Good luck with your play. · 208 days ago
The fact a so called respectable pro called him Dead Weight is sad but I guess since he's Belmont bound I'll be betting on him like I did in the Derby and Preakness,
This horse needs a break (both racing luck and maybe a freshener). Seems like he has a good style for the Belmont, not sure if we'll see him there, though.

  • LouisSaladino · I agree with you! Castellano gave him a HORRIBLE ride. He let the 4 horse go up the rail, making him check when the 6 and 9 horses folded. If he stayed on the rail,he would have easily got 2nd place. He checked,lost a ton of ground! Castellano sucks. I hope he runs in the Belmont with a different jockey! · 223 days ago
  • https://www.facebook.com/jlverg · General A Rod should race in the Belmont and get Luiz Saez as the jockey.. · 220 days ago
Castellano's ride on General A Rod was one of the worst I've ever seen in a big race, probably second only to Julie Krone's disaster on Forty Niner in the Breeders Cup Classic. He cost General A Rod 5 lengths, which is pretty painful when you have the Cal Chrome/Ride On Curlin/General A Rod trifecta and the superfecta with Social Inclusion 4th. I don't understand how these trainers/owners can leave Gary Stevens without a mount when there are jockeys like Castellano costing you $50k in lost purse money. General A Rod re-rallied very strongly and would be a threat in the Belmont, but if the new owners are dumb enough to go with Castellano, they're probably dumb enough to pass on the Belmont. Social Inclusion is going to the Belmont and there is zero chance that he could beat General A Rod at 12 furlongs. Of course if General A Rod is tired, thats a different matter, but he seems like a distance horse to me.
Second abysmal ride. Should've been third, maybe second. If he comes out of it well, watch out CC

on April 17, General A Rod worked 5F at Churchill Training on Fast Dirt in :59.80 b finishing 1/4.
is a general ridiculousness not be this colt in the top 20 of the list when other ponies that neither will run the Derby and others who have only raced once, please!
This colt must be at least in the first 20 list!!! he¨s a brilliant horse, with a lot of class, a big heart and the correct connections to be a legitimate contender
Must take out the Commissioner...
