    Apparently Zenyatta is VERY quirky, especially pre-race. She's got that crazy spanish walk thing she does that no one can figure out. She also doesn't warm up when the rest of the horses do before...

    I don't think they needed to change up the time line of the Breeder's Cup either and in fact that ruined the entire last episode(s) for me. I don't see what was gained by doing that, even for people...

    I think I could watch anything if Mike Rowe narrates it... :D

    That said I do have my DVR set up to record the first episode, hopefully it won't be blah. I'll report back!

    Very sad. :( He was quite the late closer, he made his races exciting.

    I am so excited for this! :)

    Of course I want him to win, but as long as he runs well I'll be happy. I'm so sad I don't have TVG, I'd love to see it live.

    I read somewhere that each year of insurance while he was racing was $3M. They didn't specify the amount insured, just the total cost, and I believe that it came from Jess Jackson himself rather...

    That was a joke, although on second reading it didn't come across quite the way I intended it. The folly of text communication strikes again :D

    How dare he. We all know this is an unforgivable offense against all things equine! :rolleyes: She'd be turned away by barns all over the country because she can't keep her mouth to herself. Good...

    Although I question setting aside part of the coverage of the Breeders' Cup for what is old news, just to put the issue to bed: Police confirm Iavarone's story.

    So, it seems like the Curlin camp should have never tried anything else and just entered in races where they knew they could win or where they had a huge advantage. Then everyone could have just...

    I totally agree! I guess there is someone that the non-stop touchy feely poetry crap must appeal to because they sure had plenty of it (I ended up fast forwarding through most of that). I would...

    I experienced the same problem, and here I was cursing my cable provider in all sorts of colorful language. Guess it wasn't their fault after all.

    I support anything that will improve the health of the horses. That said, it remains to be seen if these surfaces will actually do that. We've heard about the heat and the fumes, but the long term...

    I'm not even sure giving her a "go" early on would work. One of the articles I read on her talked about her quirks. One of them is that before the race her jockey doesn't warm her up, she just...

    Wow. That changes the dynamics quite a bit, there's literally no early speed now with Mast Track and Big Brown both out. I'd say the fast closing Euros gain more of an advantage now and it isn't...

    A conspiracy? Really guys? Come on now. His feet have been bad from day 1, which is why they work him on the grass as much as possible. This was his last race anyway, they had been saying that...

    The Casino Drive hype has me boggled to be honest. Only two starts and absolutely nothing for is it 6 months now? Then he's going to race this weekend and come back in two weeks for the Classic? ...

    Awww, give Glimmer a break. He's not so much raining on the parade as reporting on different versions of the same story. A lot of the super duper Curlin fans (like myself) get a little bit rabid...

    You're absolutely right. I was adding up the whole 5 million because I'm a dope and hadn't had my coffee yet. Anyway, I agree with you about the non-NA horses, the "list" does have flaws no matter...

    It's really semantics. He is a North American horse, bred here and mainly raced here. He went overseas to bring one of our great US bred horses to the international stage and now folks want to...

    They did ship him awful fast, but I read somewhere that he was a really good traveler so I'm sure they know he can handle it. I agree with them, better to have him work as many times as possible...

    Awww, that's sad to hear. :cry: The do take good care of him though, so I'm sure they'll find him a great home to go race around some pasture when it suits him.
