Nyt so fast Verrazano homer's... I know you're ready to hand him the trophy for top three year old, but although his Haskell score was visually impressive, it was a full three (+) seconds slower than Palace Malice's Jim Dandy...See you in the Traver's!
Hey Verrazano "band wagon'ers"....This just in, put I think the race for top three year old is far from over. Although his victory in the Haskell ws visually impressive, it was a full 3+ seconds slower than Palace Malice's Jim Dandly score.....
Lunsford's Vidication gelding Valantino Beauty just suffered a brutal (nose) beat in the G-2 King Edward at WOX; final time 133 2/5. Today he was beatin by Canada's reigning Older Male Turf Champ Riding the River; a repeat winer of this event. Three weeks ago he ran a very respectable 4th in another G-2 at WOX (7F on the turf) finishing 2 lengths behind yet another repeat winner; final time 120 2/5. The point being, this lightly raced son of Vindication is an exceptional talent and is destined for great things providing he stay healthy and gets the hell away from Woodbine. This guy won a strong allowance race during the KEE spring meet off of a 7 month layoff, so perhaps mapping out a summer campaign south of the border would give this guy a shot at being in the starting gate in the BC Mile. I'd love to see him reunited with Gary Stevens and entered in the Del Mar Mile. Get this guy away from the Woodbine specialist and watch him roll!!
I continue....Yet, most people know very little about it. You will be missed Autism Awareness....Rest in peace and know that your life served a significant purpose.
I consider this a personal loss, of sorts. My oldest grandson is autistic, so I have followed this horse since he was a three year old. This horse served to bring attention to a condition that affects millions of individuals world wide, yet most people know very little
Superior race horse, but I prefer Sea the Stars...
THere's not enough room in the HOF for both Beyer and his Ego. The HOF doesn't need another east coast "homer"
First of all, jmac500 is an idiot. You don't sound as though you know anything about horse racing, and you certainly don't know Doug O'neill. Your comments have been both slanderous and toxic, and most of all, ignorant. The game doesn't need people like you, so why don't you get on' back to that portion of the Springer episode you missed while taking the time to share that brilliant comment below.
All about the horse's lfe; all about the horse's health and well-being. I'm not trying to condone or justify past transgressions, but the hearing officer clearly stated there was no evidence and no intent (in this case), so why would the CHRB emphasize the negative at such a critical time for the sport??
The CHRB doesn't have a brain among them. Doug is on the dime for a two-year old infraction; got it. But these morons elect to act now--as horse racing is on the verge of assuming it's long lost place in the national spotlight--to purposely cast yet another a shodow on an already struggling industry. They elect to take action now?? As the excitemnet begins to build and talk of a Triple Crown winner opens the door for renewed interest in the game, leave it to the CHRB to throw a wet blanket on the party, and crush the national horse racing buzz. There is a greater good; a greater need here, but once again, the games leadership can't get out of it;s own way.
