    Default Kirk Ziadie now at Laurel

    Andrew Beyer at The Washington Post reports how trainer Kirk Ziadie has moved horses into Laurel, MD, after being kicked out of Calder for medical violations.

    Anyone in southern Florida know any details about Ziadie?

    He's a class act. A true horseman.

    There was an article by Beyer in the Washington Post basically to the effect that by allowing him into Laurel, MD racing has not only shown a lack of "respect" and responsibility, but it just makes itself look even more hopeless. Great.
    Race training and retraining Thoroughbreds.

    The problem with Beyer is that everything boils down to the question of HIS numbers. If a trainer turns a horse around off the claim and runs outside the parameters of the numbers, then his first reaction is that the trainer must be cheating. Never mind that he's probably never been to the accused trainer's barn, but that's always Beyer's reaction.

    I always think that reducing the grace, beauty, and athleticism of the thoroughbred to some number has been just as detrimental to our sport than any legal medication.

    So, are you saying that Zaidie's positives record is due the DRF Beyer figure? Did you read Beyer's article?

    His numbers are what they are, if a horse improves by 20 beyer points it likely improved 15 lengths. Semantics...Big deal.
