  • timgsmith10 · How can you say 1 has had a stronger career than the other yet? The season is half finished and maybe one or the other continues to race next year? As of right now HDG and B.L are VERY close in form and I wouldnt be surprised if HDG turns the tables at least 1 more time. And this realistically it will only make the rivalry stronger. · 990 days ago ·
  • footlick · They do seem evenly matched to me. Even though Blind Luck has come out on top more, not much really separates them. Blind Luck may be a little more impressive because she is not as tactical and it is always more difficult for the less tactical horse to win, but still there is not much difference between them as far as I'm concerned. · 990 days ago ·

  • New York Vinnie · mrsmary - you proven my point. I always thought you were emotionally driven by the tragic death of Ruffian. Just like some others here. You're consumed and obsessive behavior towards anyone that questions anything about Ruffian is actually disturbing and troubling. Perhaps therapy is your anwer. · 1010 days ago ·
  • mrsmaryzinke · Are you going to get therapy for your obsession over me? LOL. At least I am going overboard in my praise of a horse as opposed to you going overboard in your discrediting of that horse. I already told" brother"-dear good night, so nighty-night, dear.Vin, I will be busy picking horses from tomorrow until at least Friday. When are YOU going to drop it? · 1010 days ago ·

Some horses have a nose for the wire. The aptly-named Blind Luck is certainly one of them.

II) July 10 on the slop. ...Read More
