There is no such thing as not rushing him. Shug has his schedule mapped out and there will be running. If he treats him with Kid Gloves,he might not get fit enough. That is when they get hurt.
Liking Maleeh quite a bit. Hopefully they will bet Honor Code off the board and make him 4/5.
He does not have to win this race. But the one thing he will definately have to do is finish up Strong. Looks as though Shug is pointing to The Donn with this guy. One more race at Gulfstream and then it is Showtime.
Do not know what size wager you were prepared to put on La Verdad. But if it were substantial amount. Rather than being frustrated about the scratches,you should be doing the Irish Jig on Main Street. As it turned out , she would of gotten destroyed and you would of been ripping tickets. As the saying goes,be careful what you ask for.
I admire that about people and how they look at things about Racing. Maybe the following is because i am on overload. People that don't know me like that lady you mentioned with mike,and this guy Hoya. They think i know nothing. Living in NY all my life.Since Secreteriats Belmont and through the present. Every great horse and great race that they read about or saw on TV i was there for it. You have a dream to be a Turf Writer. I have many friends in the game (Trainers,owners,vets etc) I have worked for one of the power stables in America...Zayat Stables) I was there at the sale when we bought Thorn Song. If you go to Bloodhorse and type in Tom Mallios.I appear when we bought the highest priced horse at the time. I never had a real affinity for remembering old champs and am in love with the history. That being said,i know it extremely well. Just never fell in love with it. Same for Yankee Stadium and Madison Sq, Garden. I guess when you have sen as much as i did,you take it for granted. Hope you get to visit these places.
We are the complete opposite. I have never been to a Racing Venue west of Churchill Downs. The Derby is 1 thing i have sworn that unless absolutely necessary i would never attend ,even if comped.
Zipse, why restrict it to the Flats only. The Sport is Horse Racing and that includes the Jug Heads(Harness Racing) . I am sure living in the Widy City,you accidentally or purposely stopped in at Maywood or Balmoral. So truly you have Eclipsed the 50 mark. On to the Century plateau.
Good for you, i like Matt, i met him a couple of times at the track. Where are you from ,if you do not mind me asking. Are you a New Yorker ? Will you be at the Cigar Mile
Hoya you can't be that dense wheras you can't grasp the notion of tongue and cheek. I said i would not respond to you because in my mind,regardless of your self proclaimed assets. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about in regards to the racing game.Come to think of it,seems common sense and street smarts is something yoy should work on. So if you want to keep rehashing,please be my guest. I only chat with those i enjoy (like Mike) or strangers i can learn from. You do not fit any of those.
Here i thought when the Stooges left the site,that all was OK. Guess i was wrong.
