Welcome, Gob. Hope he does well.
(by the way, for clarification, I do not know or have ever spoken to Farish... only Hudson)
@Goblin, no they are not local. They are actually pretty big. W.S Farish, ecpecially. I did not speak with W.S Farish, obviously, but spoke to Hudson, who is the minority owner (I believe...). I know Hudson through some close friends. Your point about Curlin is possible, but we'll see. The possibly of him not being good enough might come true, or it might not... I'll just have to wait and see. Clearly, the 2-1 ML indicates how the railbirds think about him COMPARED to the other Laurel babies... we'll see. Can't wait to watch the race.
Your sentence is worded funny and is difficult to understand. "let people in on race day with the horses who were not supposed to be there before the horse raced. " is pure gibberish.... now, what does that have to do with your usernames? By using context to your messed up sentence, or perhaps it's just my dyslexia getting in the way, I am guessing you are trying to ask why I am allowed in on "race day"... the answer is why I am allowed in everyday at Laurel. I have my connections. You do know I work as a public handicapper, handicapping mentor and do seminars (weekly) at Laurel four days a week, right? I can go behind the scenes whenever I want. I have my connections, I know local trainers (Parx, Laurel and Pimlico), jockeys and owners.... I have my connections. If my answer has nothing to do with you question, I apologize, but your statement is very difficult to understand..
More confusion. What is the point of bringing up your two usernames? I don't know who Cowboy7 is, anyway. Lastly, what does this have to do with the thread, and what did the substance/drugs reference have anything to do with the topic? I must be missing something... Mallios, that is what I am afraid of and that is my concern (as expressed on the other Top Billing thread). I agree, and that worries me... we'll see how he does.
*raceday, not raceway.
...... Where in my original post earlier in the day made you bring up carrying drugs on raceway? I'm not sure your point here nor do I care what you are getting at.... whatever it may be. Are you calling me a "druggie"?
Makes sense, that theory, but the possibility of the connections not thinking he is good enough is possible, too. Based on what I have heard, I doubt it, but we'll see. I'll be asking his connections about this decision tomorrow, for sure.
I'm not a huge baseball fan nor do I like commenting about subjects other than horse racing on the forum, but: I don't understand this move at all by the Yankees. Jacoby Ellsbury has consistently been injured, is 30 years of age, and his productivity is heavily dependent on his legs (has led the league in steals three times). Besides 2011, in which he came 2nd in the MVP voting and hit 32 home runs, this guy has been nothing incredibly special. He is towards the top echelon of leadoff batters in the MLB, but let's keep in perspective the guy has only made ONE, I repeat ONE, all-star game in his career (2011, which I noted earlier). In the short term, it seems like a solid deal. He certainly will help the Yanks the next couple seasons. But, this is a 7yr/153mil deal. By Year 4, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, do you guys honestly believe he will be worth 21+ million in salary? Remember, this guy's success is highly dependent on his speed and ability to steal bases. Not only that, but the signing hurts the Yankees potential to bring in more free agents. The rotation needs THREE starters, in my opinion, and they are getting limited in money in regards to their projected 189 million salary cap. This also sends the message to Robinson Cano. Robinson Cano has been on record wanting a huge deal, and if Jacoby Ellsbury gets 153 million dollars (and he is no where near the player Cano is), Cano and his agent (Jay Z) can certainly use this as ammunition in continued negotiations. They really have no excuse not to pay Cano less than 180 million considering what they gave Ellsbury, who is no where near as good. Take this with a grain of salt, because I am not any sort of baseball expert, just a casual fan of the MLB, and a die-hard fan of the San Fransisco Giants. Just my opinion in regards to the Ellsbury signing. I also think the San Fransisco Giants have a good chace next year, and I'm hoping for a 3rd World Series in five seasons.
