Brian makes excellent points once again in this latest article, but voters are different nowadays because of how much the racing landscape has changed over the years. While a horse such as Game on Dude is very deserving of the Older Male Award, it will be the same as last year most likely as Wise Dan will sweep all three. As much as I LOVE Mucho Macho Man, I cannot make a case for him as he only won two major races in the fall. It is Horse of the Year after all, and not Horse of the Fall.
Well said Brian. Those are exactly my thoughts of Hialeah. Also your interpretation of the long nights and qucks turnarounds into the next morning was described perfectly as you know that is just what us die-hards do everytime. It was great seeing you this weekend and thanks again my friend. :)
I just wish Skip Away was around to face Cigar in 1995 when Cigar was at his peak instead of a year later. It would of made the race a bit more interesting, but was still a great race.
Thanks and I hope for the same thing. :)
Thank You and I feel the same way. :)
Thank You, somebody joked that you are making a cartoon of it as we speak. hahaha
Well he surely doesn't want to run into Animal Kingdom in The Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap!
This is great and I really do it works out well for SHRP. If only the other tracks could take an example of this and use it to their advantage to build on their racing product as well instead of just their gaming operations and plans to just get rid of racing. We need tracks like this to build on racing and make it thrive. Not let it go by the wayside and say goodbye. Kudos to SHRP, and I look forward to their big day in January.
This really is a great addition to HRN!
