Older Comments about Vyjack...

I truly feel bad for Vyjack. There was NO reason to run him AGAIN at 1 1/4 miles. He had a life-threatening health problem, and I applaud the connections for taking their time and letting him recuperate, but STOP RUNNING HIM IN RACES THAT HE DOESN'T BELONG.

  • tmallios · The horse was Deputy Minister. · 75 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Yes I thought he had Deputy Minister too. He was a major player with penny stocks, thought he pretty much invented them and many people lost their shirts with him. He went to jail for securities fraud etc. · 75 days ago
on June 18, Vyjack worked 4F at Aqueduct on Firm Turf in :52.05 b finishing 4/5.

  • tmallios · Go have your face to face wit John Barbaro. Bring him back instead. At least he had not reached the category of Whinng yet. · 95 days ago
  • icyhotboo · Some serious ass kicking here, vn · 95 days ago
I think he should race in a lower level race or an allowance as a confidence booster. Not sure what's wrong with this boy.

  • tmallios · Vic it pains me to agree with you to a degree on Vyjack. I would not say that he is slow,but for whatever the reasons he has not showed yet. He has t do something to be considered even as a passing thought in a conversation with the top horses around. What he has going for him is time and opportunities. Idiots will claim he is mis-managed,strog talk from some who the closest they ever came to managing or selecting horses was. What horse on the Merry Go Round am i going to sit atop. Regardless of where his next race is,it will not only be his rd race of the year. But also his 3rd race after surviving a life threatening circumstance. You see Vyjack is a gelding,he has no sights set on being a Stallion or early retirement . He will just be a Race Horse . All he needs to do is put everything together and be the best that he can. All you can ask from anyone. Ass Holes that try to knock him and say he is not this or that are entitled. Me personally, i would rather heed the opinion of those that actually know what they are talking about. You see the easiest thing to do is hold an opinion with no accountability. · 96 days ago
  • icyhotboo · In answer to to posted question... they cut his balls off!!!!! that'll doit · 96 days ago
Maybe he should try turf?
tmallios, can I get your opinion on the Met Mile and what you thought of Vyjack today? Thanks.
  • tmallios · Never fired , turn the page and look forward. No moping or excuses here. Rudy will figure it out and go from there. It was to bad,does not mean it did not hurt. · 106 days ago
on May 26, Vyjack worked 6F at Aqueduct on Fast Dirt in 1:10.39 b finishing 1/2.
This horse is going to have to STEP IT UP to have any chance of winning the Met Mile, I found his comeback race unimpressive, don't know why they are taking him to the Met Mile against the beast they call Palace Malace

  • Lisa111 · Bradley, you ask, "PLEASE, let me know who this horse actually beat". LOL! He beat the Derby winner ORB, while Palace Malice was trying his hardest to get two wins on the board before the Derby. I dont know if Vyjack can win the Met Mile at all, but I am glad to see a horse who was very very sick back on the track and healthy. That is all that matters. · 129 days ago
  • tmallios1 · Who cares about Vyjack winning or losing this race. The fun part is you Rafi,go back to what i told you on Sunday nite. You will eventually shame yourself again. When Jenna took you to task with your redundant quotes you ran and hid. As Bradley you have so many of the same catch phrases. Then the Lisa,Lisa usage of the name. Exactly how you used to do it. What you say about me is irrelevant,spew all you want. Just state what you want as the real you. You are entitled to your thoughts. Like John Barbaro and probably Bradley. This will get hidden in the closet. just one final question. I enjoy for the most par chatting with 95% of the posters here (guess what grouping you are under) I am sure i am also on your 5 % list. The question is,how can you look at yourself in the mirror when you attempt to deceive teese people. Is it that important to be loved and make people think that you know what you are talking about. · 129 days ago
Great job today.

  • tmallios1 · Thank you all.Just got home from a little post race celebrating. He was very good today. Rudy and his brother Gustavo have done a magnificent job with him. I was there Jenna. Sure looked good at the end when he kicked it into gear. Should be a fun summer. · 147 days ago
Tom, a nice article about Vyjack on DRF. Haven't been on HRN much lately but hopefully will be soon. About the allowance at Aqueduct and his health problems last year.
My boy worked today at Aqueduct. Lets just say Scary Good is downplaying it.

  • tmallios1 · Thanks Buck,looks like it will be like the good ole days at the WWF in its heyday. A handicap tag team match, Jacobsons pair vs. Vyjack. This is just step 1 . Let himclear this hurdle and go on. · 150 days ago

  • travel_vic · as a yearling this one ran head long into a fence and bored a hole in his head, acted goofy for a very long time so his first race he was entered in a Md claimer for 5K. WOn by almost 10 eased up so they saw they had an INDIVIDUAL and not some pedigree fancy animal. · 165 days ago
  • tmallios · Again irrelevant Gibberish, and i spelled it with a "G" · 165 days ago
Nathan just got more raves today about his conditioning. Looks as though he is ready for more works.Keeping fingers crossed. David sent me pictures today of him on the track this morning. Striding out like a champ

He had a workout today with Rudy up. He went 50.3 to the half and galloped out a very easy 1.03. Rudy just wanted to see whre he was at. He was ecstatic.Vyjack is alot more relaxed this time around and he is striding out a lot better. Nathan,pal Don Tito will run at The Sleezy on Wood Memorial day at 7 Furlongs for a $35,000 Claiming price. Looks like will be making an appearance at the track on that day.
Just spoke to my friend who went by the barn today. He is starting to look amazing,he has adopted to the new surroundings . Now they can get serious with him , to prepare him for the upcoming year. The great thing about having a gelding and hoping that they are as good as you think they are. You do not have to over race them. You have a long career ahead of them and you can take your shots.
Today at Fair Hills.Worked 4F in 48.1 and galloped out in 1.01.1 , he is ready.
on March 8, Vyjack worked 4F at Fair Hill on Fast All Weather Training in :50.20 b finishing 22/45.
