  • Jay S. · Nice to hear Frac Daddy had a very good showing after being out for a while. · 150 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · Leparoux's ride stunk up the card. WALKED INTO a blind switch as several of us called it before it happened. · 324 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · Horse that was eased in yesterday's turf stake wound up with a cominuted (multiple pieces) fracture of a sesamoid. She was alive today at 2:00 EDT but may not be long for this world depending upon the "insurance payout," I was told today. · 324 days ago ·
Tough 2nd place finished but for his first start at Woodbine it was a good effort.
I hope his form transfers over to Woodbine.
Next stop the Marine Stakes!
