Mebbe if they replaced the jockey with Daniker...........

They got Rosie in hoss racin' she is not the looker as Danika is... Danika is about the right size though. Hitting the wall on CaliChrome she still might finish

Costas’ll suck ten years after ‘e’s dead…………………………………

What’s the deal, Roo dude. The owner tolt it the way it was or just sour grapes?

 Ever year, NASCAR ‘tweaks’ the aero package. Ever time they do they stick sumthin’ on the bodies what pokes a bigger hole in the air. End up with cars what gets stuck inna bunch of other cars, they lose down force (what was ‘discovered’ by Mario Andretti ‘bout four years after Don Garlits was usin’ it on 'is dragsters) on the nose ‘n they won’t turn. Everbody ‘n ‘is kid brother tells ‘em it ain’t gonna werk, they do it ennyways. Then, when folks publically criticize the package, in other werds, tells the truth, NASCAR fines ‘em.

Hoss racin’ folks gonna fine CC’s owner?

He was both... It is the way the race has been ran forever. It is also the reason there has only been 11 winners.  
So he had to know what he had in store for his team and especially the horse when Brookside picked it up for the trip to New York.
It does seem unfair that out of such a short field less than half of them ran in derby or preakness. As far as that goes have they raced in the past month.
You watch over the years many times the contender scratches near race day.
The 11 horses who won the Triple Crown were the top- watch the old footage of the races- you'll see the difference in Secratariat and California Chrome.
I feel for the owners i know they invested their entire lives into that one horse.  It was a gamble from day one. They should have take their winnings and smile. The stud fee's from CC will make the horse and them comfortable along time.


As far as getting fined. I don't know. I am sure he won't be popular with many at the top.

CC had an "off" day and he got his foot cut during the race. His owner was caught up in the emotion and said what he felt.

Horse racing like many other sports bow to the money. If you made the qualifications what he wants, even though it would be fair then many of the big money stables would complain because they couldn't run and beat the contender. Stud fees are what pay the bills and you can believe that Tonalist will command high fees as the horse that beat California Chrome in the Belmont. The thing the media downplays is that there were two other horses ahead of him and one that finished neck and neck with him so he would have lost to one of the other two if Tonalist had fallen off the pace.

It would take a lot of breeders and trainers screaming about the unfairness of the rule to bring about a change. Then if 20 qualify for the Derby and that limits the pool, and of that only 15 of them are able to run in the Preakness and then only 10 are left to race at Belmont will they get the crowds and the TV revenues under those circumstances?

Tune in next year.

Why is Dale JR trying to be the first to race Indy, Daytona and ride all three races of the Triple Crown?

Got Skyed yesterday by my adoptive father in Oregon.  He has some bets he wants me to place for him on the Derby.  They include 1 horse to win, 3 horses to place, 2 exata boxes and 2 super fectas.  Total bets are very small, but I don’t have any idea about what most of the bets ae, just feeling like a bookie!

So it’s off to the Grand Sierra Resort later.
