What the Nation is saying about the 2007 Whitney Handicap (G1)...

It was a sweltering August evening in suburban St. Louis, and I can still remember the sweat dripping from my forehead, momentarily blurring my vision from the copper chestnut beauty that was just a few feet away from me. His name was Lawyer Ron and he was one of the two reasons my wife and I had ma...Read More

  • goblin · Lovely piece! After Itsmyluckyday's win yesterday, I thought of Lawyer Ron's beauty and especially his races as an older horse; from the beginning he had a singular vitality. When he died so suddenly, Steve Haskin of BH wrote a tribute to him that began with the words, "Lawyer Ron loved to run." I think I see that trait in Itsmyluckyday as well. If you haven't read the BH article, here it is. http://cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/horse-racing-steve-haskin/archive/2009/07/20/lawyer-ron-beyond-a-reasonable-doubt.aspx · 446 days ago ·

  • DeadHeat · And many of you need one in reality. What i said is completely true. If you want to be technical, over 90 of horses in this sport are not clean, but are because of what is made legal. Winstrol was at the time, so even it showed up in Curlin's blood, it would have been fine. I also provided you with facts above that say that that particular drug does not produce much weight gain or muscle gain, unlike typical steroids. That particular drug is actually used to treat conditions that cause swelling, and it reduces it. Swelling typically comes from when blood flows highly to one area of the body causing it to swell and become stiff and painful. If it reduces swelling then this drug would be an equivalent to aprin or motrin to humans. · 900 days ago ·
