Hey sth:

Amazing.  What a great job of putting all this together.  Absolutely, amazing.

When we are all working separately on our individual tracks, the huge significance of what we are doing is not apparent.  Now we see the results of our work, after only two months or so, and it is impressive.

Surely we will make a difference in the lives of all race horses, and that is a good thing.

It will be interesting to see how the various organizations respond.

Great job everyone.

yes!! This has NEVER been done before and I am so grateful to everyone who agreed to watch the tracks!!

We all  know of the various sites that have Memorials and some accounting of injuries and deaths.. They are beautiful and wonderful for their intended purpose - honoring the fallen horses.. This must be done. But no one has has ever gathered this data so sytematically for the express purpose of using it to promote industry change..

In addition to the good that it will do for the horses, i also think it is an incredible testiment to the kindness and good faith of strangers who have come together on a message board to make a difference..I am in awe of all that...So thank you!!

btw i do beleve that i found some help with data entry so i am hoping in the not too distant to be able to  correlate some of our variables and better document trends and patterns as CHoklitz has done with Penn National...

This is another gelding being raced too frequently and I think is a candidate for our Watch List. 

Honourable Nature, 6 yr. gelding. Owner: Charlie Lawson; Trainer: Joseph D. Davis.

He has raced (poorly) two weeks in a row and is scheduled to go again on Sunday.  Here are his recent Equibase results: 

7/26/07 6/6 @ River Downs, 1 1/16 mi., contested the pace for three quarters and stopped.

8/5/07 5/10 @ Ellis Park., 7 f., off inside, tired.

This guy needs a break!  Do you want to add him to Wiki or should I?  Also, since I'm no longer tracking alot of older horses I could watch another track.  Do you need any watched?

thanks Choklitz will enter him..

judy is going to be gone for a couple of weeks and Evil Downs LA Downs Calder Camerero Los ALamitos need coverage.. I hate to wish that on any one..I said i would do them while she is gone..

Do want to do Los Alamitos and CAmerep for a  couple of weeks and I will do the others?

I happened to stop by Arlington today (8/10) and in the 2nd race..Carmel my Belle broke down and in the 3rd race, Shakes collapsed and was vanned off.  How do I find out what happened to these horses?  Things were going so well at Arlington and now this week has been horrible.
