if this is at all telling, she just deleted her Twitter account.
A very interesting article on Maria Borell. Can't confirm the accuracy of this article but it's shocking to say the least. https://www.usracing.com/news/analysis/shocking-untold-story-maria-borell
When the original Maria drama broke I didn't want to make an opinion on her innocence given the lack of concrete/consistent facts, but her total lack of composure and professionalism in handling the situation completely put me off of supporting her. I thought she came off as deceptive and desperate. Again, I can't say how completely true this article is, but if even a quarter of this is true this woman is a black eye to the sport and deserves no part of it.
Hoping i can make it out for this!
So I'm not the only one feeling this way.... Curlin was a great horse. He has had some very successful offspring and I see that trend continuing. I just don't see why some people take his foal's success/failure or detractors so personally. Why does every Curlin baby deserve more credit/excuses than any other sire's? It's stopped a bit since we have the triple crown to distract us but there were times I didn't want to come to this site because it seemed like every thread was about Curlin.
Fans need to thank Casse for his willingness to try his fillies in tougher spots against the boys. He has some very talented runners in his barn and he has done such a great job with them and he is really rewarding us fans by giving them these shots. CAG isn't the 'flashiest' winner but she sure gets the job done every single time.
For a horse as unseasoned as this one he was right there at the finish. I don't think he's better than Exaggerator or Nyquist but given how this race shaped up between the slop and pace, I'd rather wait and judge this horse under more 'normal' conditions. I just don't see how he can be written off completely after one weird race like this.
made about $75 off him. Good way to end the weekend :)
ATTA BOY!!! Looked great sitting a bit closer to the pace!
I really like Second Summer. Recently gelded and has been training beautifully. I think he has a shot with enough pace to run at.
Not sure he'll ever win anything big but thanks to his big second yesterday I'll always root for this horse. I didn't post here yesterday before the fact so you don't have to believe me, but in the morning I placed a $10 cold exacta with Nyq/Ex. My thinking being he wouldn't mind the slop and could rate off the pace. (I think it was the speed duel, not the track that did him in) About 5 minutes before the race I threw in a small bet on an Ex/Cherry Wine exacta just in case Nyquist really didn't take to the track. I certainly wanted Nyquist to win but I couldn't help but be ecstatic that CW did actually nose him out for that nice payout!
