I think this could be great. As long as he is safe and healthy, this is fantastic. I don't want him to become another stud. I'd rather watch him run for another 3-4 years. Even if he can no longer be elite like he was this spring and last year, I'd rather root for him as a claimer than for him to be a "oh yeah, I remember him, I hope his colts have a good 3 yr old season." or a "Who should Palace Malice mate with ?" poll question.
thanks goblin. I knew she had some issues, just not the extent. Then I say they are doing the right thing.
This one should be a great watch. I like Tonalist here though.
Great read, why exactly is she ending her career? Breeding?
Chrome still has it but if one of the others can pull of the BC, they can steal it. I dislike how the eclipse seems to favor the 2nd half of the year, when most of the fiercest competition is in the first 6 months.
Good horse, will miss him. Wonder when the next 3 yr old champ will race to 5+ years.
Couldn't get to the lead but fought to earn a 3rd place show. A nice sized purse so I am happy with the results.
Goblin is one my favorite things about HRN. Anyways, Buckpasser, things seem to be pointing towards Plainridge now that the Mass game commission is taking heat for costing about 5,000 people their jobs. Plainridge however is still hanging by a thread because we need to vote to keep casinos in November.
Goblin its hardly my group. I am just a fan who's wife bought him an old discarded horse that ended up winning, placing and showing in just about every race in 2014 and that earned me enough to start buying into other horses. I get the information but unfortunately I no say. I do think the most likely course of action is plainridge. Of course I'd love to see Brockton reopen for a couple weeks in the summer as the worst case scenario.
Owners, Trainers, Jockey's and other track members are scrambling to come up with a plan to save racing in New England. Obviously they are all one in a million shots, but when you love something you can't just let it go. Some of our plans:
1. Explore developing the land around the track, shops, restaurants, hotels, even housing. Use money to reopen.
2. Find a buyer who will keep races open.
3. Branch into harness racing and then have a tiny meet each summer.
4. Investigate the possibility of the ol' racetrack in Brockton
