    Nice that the trainers who get good horses, don't have to worry about feed bills or stall space or food on the table, show their " integrity" at he crossroads of this industry. Free p r accomplishing zero.

    My nets fan takes the morning train
    He goes to Monmouth Park and then
    He bets a 3-5 again
    Then tells me all about it.
    My nets fan takes the morning train
    Ole hilltops why he came
    His odds ons are my bane
    Then we go round and round again.
    With apologies to Sheena.

    netsfan3 Yes, I looked it up last night. I did not know SHEENA, QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE was a comic book sensation during the 30's and 40's. Don't believe I ever watched the television show either in the 1950's. I admit I rarely listen to pop music since the 1980's. I will listen to the song later today.

    A totally irresponsible tweet from an "industry handicapper". A presumption of guilt stated with no evidence to back it up. Do those trainers and others have to prove their innocence? Any success whether it be extraordinary or constant comes under fire. How many would ban 1 or all of those mentioned if given the chance? They must be guilty given their success. All ya have to do is say it.

    Imagine running a racehorse today on the east coast. Actual temps forecast from the low to mid 90's. Heat indices to 106 depending where you are. I don't know if any tracks have cancelled. Imagine a horse that takes meds for exercised induced pulmonary hemorrhaging pushing it's physical limits under such conditions. 6 dead at Saratoga.

    netsfan3 I listen (read) what you and Donald Trump post all the time. Good for an occasional laugh. But, that's about as far as it goes.

    If you missed it, YOU MISSED IT! The greatest Wimbledon final of all time! A casual fan at best, I came upon it by chance. 30 seconds in I was hooked. An incredible match that not only went back and forth. Each had the other "on the ropes" unable to close throughout the match culminating in one of or thee best set of all time given the circumstances.

    netsfan3 I go all the way back to Poncho Gonzalez, and many others. The guy, or girl with a big serve has a big advantage. Similar to a big baseball pitcher over a pinpoint control small guy. Doesn't mean the small guy can't win some of the matches. But, the power is an advantage.

    A close family member deploys for Kuwait city this a m. Where he goes from there is unknown to us at this time. He will be gone for 7-9 months. Leaving behind a 3yo and 5yo and his wife. Dan is a police officer in northern N.J. He has served in the Middle East and N.J. for all of his adult life. We're very proud and sad today. Godspeed.

    Uglybetty U pray for his safety but also that his wife is able to maintain the home front with two small children

    Is sending an unsound horse to post an "intentional or malicious act"? Are horsemen, owners , or tracks held responsible if a previous condition that would've, could've exacerbated the cause of the breakdown? Are euthanized horses examined to find the cause of a breakdown? Bad steps and heart attacks and that's all she wrote? Next!!!

    Fuzzypants Mustards Lasix can dehydrate a horse and seems people for get the heart is a smooth muscle dehydration. Causes thumps and AFIB and causes organs to shut down .
    Sorry I'm not a fan of Lasix .
    I've only had a couple of horses race with it and I worked on there diet and training them in the off season as a riding horse in the hills above 5000 ft ,
    Got them off they shit.

    American Currency, vet scratch 6-16. Reasonable to have vet scratch findings published when listed? Transparency? Higher standards? Nothing going on here? Hall of Famer? What about the little guy just trying to stay afloat? Is it probable temptations are succumbed to in order to be viable? Not condemning vast majority. 2000 horses a year?

    bellesforever I follow a lot of lower level horses General Ike is one I worry about he ran yesterday in his lowest level yet two races back he was a voided claim at SA I guess he was a private purchase because he raced at Pleasonton yesterday for new owners these horses get lost and it breaks my heart ..

    Foul is foul. Clearly came over on 9 before clear. Stewards view shows ck. up. 9's chances should be irrelevant.

    Fuzzypants Don't even get me started on all this shit .

    BARN hOWLS. This site a bit of a paradox. Occasional complaints regarding members of our families. Political partisanship weighted in mostly one direction. Complaints of other non racing content. You can cover the discussion of the Triple Crown in one finger scroll. Curious! "This is a horseracing site". Renewal of my Derby man crush. SPINOFF! Has speed and will get the Big Sandy oval. Belmont?

    Fuzzypants That wide trip screwed Tacitus

    I hope everyone takes a moment to remember those kids, excuse me, men, who saved the world 75 years ago.

    Watch HBO'S Real Sports SA piece. After you vomit and wipe away your eye moisture let those who don't think US racing is an abomination please defend. Tell me about these creatures who have no say in there fate. Who try their best despite their infirmities because it's in their DNA. Those who are treated better only as long as they produce. Most all succumb to a sickening fate.

    bbmax Appreciate all the comments here. Great points made. I don’t proclaim to know much about the training and caring of these animals. Not had the experience that many in the stables seem to have. Probably like many was brought into the game by a father or uncle as a way to spend a day out with the guys and maybe make some money. In the process you fall in love with the game trying to handicap a winner but most of all fall in love with these beautiful animals. Anyone who has taken a backstretch tour be it Saratoga, Del Mar also sees how well these animals are cared for. So if I was to make opinions regarding drugs, track conditions (dirt, synthetic etc) one could easily say you don’t know what the heck (I”ll keep it clean) you are talking about. And they be right. What got me about the show was the way some of these animals were sold off and slaughtered. Always heard about the stories but to see it broadcast as shown was upsetting to say the least. Not sure what if anything can be done about that but geez you would hope that owners would not be allowed to sell these horses knowing what is in store. Maybe trainers boycott training for these owners so they get out of the game. I don’t know. Best to all.

    Ok I will. Many of us have been in this and other contests over the years. We're in it for basically the same reasons. To win, to test ourselves, to have fun and poke fun. We are playing against the house and in a lesser sense each other. I suspect we all would like some recognition from our peers for a nice score or accomplishment over the long haul. Many of us are in multiple contests.

    Surprisingly little banter. This is a horseracing site? We're in the midst of the heart and soul of American thoroughbred racing. Barely a peep of excitement xpressed from the "purists" who don't think anything but should be on site. Wasn't derby last week? Isn't there some sort of big race coming up? I know about that 1-9 at Miami Valley. I know where I can bet a $2.40 horse and get my money back

    Johnny B Angry Did you have a pick for the big race you reference? Preakness right? How did you make out?
