This untruth again.
Here is a copy and paste of a post I made in another thread a while back.
That is an oft repeated statement on these boards, but is not true, as a look at any old copy...
DRF says he was vanned off.... http://live.drf.com/nuggets/13476
Pulled up while tailed off in the CT Classic :eek::eek::eek:
Hope all is ok.
Here's the replay of the Arkansas Derby for those that haven't seen it.
That's a whole lotta race horse right there folks.
Just won the AK Derby, in effortless fashion.
What a monster.
Has to be fav for Derby in three weeks.
All 39 returned. Balthazar King took a knock in the ribs from another horse, hence why he was slow to get up, or they took their time getting him up. Reports say he may have a broken rib or two.
Slew would be the most obvious example.
Tiznow would probably qualify on both counts.
Interesting question. Would be an interesting project to put some actual numbers on that.
Anecdotal, I would say that that there are more women jockeys in US racing, particularly in flat racing...
Katie Walsh just rode the winner of the Irish Grand National.
The winner, Thunder and Roses, was trained by Sandra Hughes.
Great ride too.
Victor Espinoza has ridden at Ascot before. He had 5 rides at the Royal meeting last year, including a winner on Hooteanny in the Windsor Castle Stakes.
The Arc is 6 months away. It's just a possible target if all goes well. I'm sure if he doesn't do well at Ascot, he will come home. Hell, if he bombs in his prep the Lockinge at Newbury, then he will...
Apparently Dortmund lost a shoe today as he came out of the gate, which makes his win all the more impressive.
Hard to know what to make of Carpe Diem and Frosted given the slow fractions in the...
They are no different. Do Steve Asmussen and Todd Pletcher train every horse they have stabled at different tracks around the country? Not unless they have cloned themselves they don't.
Why are you sorry for the horse? If he runs bad, he runs bad. You don't know until you try.
How many Euro or Japanese horses have come to run in big US dirt races and bombed? Remember Dylan...
No turns in the Queen Anne stakes, it's over the straight mile course. So he just needs to run in a straight line.
Here is last year's running of the Queen Anne, with ex-American runner Verrezano...
The story next to it was even funnier.:lol::lol::lol:
I think that is pretty much a given.
They stated almost 9 months ago that almost all the interest they were getting in CC from stud farms was from overseas, primarily Japan. They even considered...
Most of their expenses are paid by Sheik Mo, including owners flights and accommodation.
The only supposed downside is the "Dubai bounce", which I think is an urban myth anyway as plenty of horses...
I don't understand the long distance travel bit. He has to fly back from Dubai to somewhere. It appears he will fly to England father than southern California. They are both long distances, but the...
If anything he is going to end up at stud in Japan.
Who in Dubai would buy him?
This thread is the internet equivalent of the movie Groundhog Day.
I haven't heard. I would guess Art Sherman's son maybe? He has been the one that has usually traveled with him in the past.
It will be interesting to see where, and with whom, he ends up being...
Sound like all may not be well in the Chrome and the decision to send him to Ascot is not an unanimous one. Art Sherman apparently appears to have been some what blindsided by it.
I guess Martin is...
California Chrome wil ship straight from Dubai to Newmarket in England where is next start will be at Royal Ascot in June.
They haven't said which race his target will be, but I imagine either the...
Denying people the right to gamble because you think it is immoral or "bad" is equivalent to denying people the right to drive a car on the 'sabbath'.
If somebody thinks gambling is 'wrong', then...
