Half of what you said has some validity. I was very skeptical of Doug oneal wit scratching I'll have another cuz there was a huge amount of buzz going around after the Preakness about doping. Then he received a ban and served his punishment. But if you study oneal closely you can see he has made a transformation into a great trainer and a stand up guy. You can even tell his whole demeanor has changed since that derby w I'll have another. I have the utmost respect for the guy now. As far as your comment about him currently doping that couldn't be anymore false. He's there was suspicion back then but you can't go based on that. And they're not running nyquist because he spiked a fever and he's not 100% you could tell by looking at nyquist after the Preakness the horse had no body fat on him all muscle. To utilize the most energy you need some fat in the reserve around the shoulders and neck usually so the equine doctors say. But if you knew the horse business you wouldn't risk running your horse for a possible breakdown or not a great performance. You gotta understand the repercussions of not performing well in this sport it can hurt your stud duties and that's where the money is in this sport. Most ppl think that the running of races is the main event but in actuality it's the breeding that's the main event in horse racing. But give oneal a break he is a stand up guy now everyone has their faults in life and he learned from his possible past infractions.
Is anyone else bummed out the last two years with the payouts? I think I heard a commentator say last years derby was the 2nd lowest payout and yesterday was lower than that! A $1 tri that only paid $86 in the derby is weak sauce..... Haveta wait and see till next year
How about this plan.... Go win the oaks at Churchill then rest up for a run in the Haskell at Monmouth park against the boys for a cool $1 mill.
Acclamation was a great one too
Did I read the article correct? Lmao they raced a male horse in a female horse race and the horse he ran for was 99-1 and it won by like 8 lengths lol holy crap, any of the rules come in to play here ? Crooks
Send Zenyatta to him lol!!!
I was just logging in to write the same post lol barring no injuries this is lining up to be the best 4yr n older division we had in a few years. Good to see. Can't wait for '16 has to offer
Kaitlyn, I thought I was the only one thinking the same thing. I was thinking whys this poor girl out there by herself no ones giving her the time of day. No one came up to her, she went up to the owners, she's class and they're obviously not.
Gallery Racing you're a joke. Whoever this sister in law Laura wohlers is should be ashamed. Why even have Maria Borell train from the beginning if you're just gonna overstep her voice and do what you wanna do for the mattress bozo anyway. The fact you wanna save face and say we wanted to give Maria a breeders cup win under her name on record is feces thrown in ppls face, just gross. The girl deserves it and deserves more. This puts a damper on the sport when we're trying to get more ppl to like the sport and attract newcomers, this just pushes ppl away and makes ppl agree on their already misconceptions of the sport that it's shady and a dark eye. Horse wins a breeders cup race, trsiner says there might be some filling in ankles, and you want him out on the track training already???? I wouldn't get outa bed either if I just won a championship last night you kidding me? Just makes me shake my head w this
Is this really the stage for this kinda statement? Sorry to hear about all that but at the same time this is a forum not a place to air out dirty laundry where alot of us shouldn't even know this stuff. GL in your future though.
