The portion of this ruling that makes a great deal of sense is the proposed banning of any drug/medication to a racehorse except as "actual therapy". They are going after the use of the thyroid replacement med/hormone thyroxine for anything other than its intended use--the intended use is for replacement purposes in animals or humans who are demonstrably hypo-thyroid. (Lacking in the natural production of adequate amounts of thyroid hormone(s) by their own thyroid gland.) It looks like they (NY) intend to make trainers and their vets produce thyroid lab tests/profiles to prove medical need. To my knowledge, the state of California did not make such changes following the Baffert episode. The way the BH story is worded appears that NY may possibly require proof of medical need for any/all prescribed meds/drugs for the horses in the future. That certainly would have nation-wide ramifications.
Jb, Jay, Mark, et al---Exaggerator's win yesterday did put Curlin at #6 on the general sire list with 2015 earnings of $10,406,990; just past Giant's Causeway and just below Candy Ride. Of course the sires' list is ever changing, but he has held his own since topping the 3rd crop list last year and is closing out this year strongly. Stonestreet and Hill 'n' Dale must be smiling. I'm hoping the Eclipse voters provide more good news!
I checked both BH and DRF to verify, and this win should give Exaggerator 16 points for the Derby trail, second to Nyquist with 30 points. Brody's Cause has 14, and now becomes third. Of course all these upcoming prep races will bring changes as things proceed, but this is a nice conclusion for Exaggerator's 2 y/o season. (I'm assuming it's the conclusion.) :)
It was a strange win but he earned his 10 points! Happy for all the connections, and especially for Curlin!
So sad. I saw on Paulick Report that he had lost blood circulation in his left leg below the injury site. RIP.
It was a right hind sesamoid fx., repaired by Dr. Larry Bramlage and reported by several reliable sources, including TDN. http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/khozan-has-surgery-out-3-4-months-shared-archive/
What a nice surprise on a Friday morning, Jb! After 3 1/2 years on this blog site myself, I so appreciate the always pleasant and friendly attitude you project. Of course your professed love of Curlin is your very best attribute in my eyes! ;)
A turf prospect, Tom?
Far From Over has been galloping at Winstar for about a month and is nearing a return to training per TDN. http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/not-that-far-from-a-return/
According to this schedule, it will be on TVG. I checked the Delta Downs site as well, and found that they have live video available. :) http://www.americasbestracing.net/en/races/tv-radio-schedule/
