Gerh said...At least Master Fencer won’t get pumped with lasix.I hated the end of his latest work.The exercise rider got way too whip happy.
Yeah, I wonder what that was all about? I was thinking to myself that he was testing to see what direction horse would shy toward when whipped. I guess better to find that out now than in a crowded field. But most of these horses don't need whipping. If properly trained, all they need is a "reminder" to turn on their afterburners, or "let's go!" kind of thing, like if they are gawking, etc. Whipping them doesn't make them be able to run 5 more furlongs on wobbly legs, right?
Watching Game Winner get whipped multiple times just makes me sad. I want to leap onto the screen and grab it away.
I edited out my early picks, as today I am looking at some new things that may make me change my mind on a few things. At any rate, I really need to see post positions, even though they aren't that important for Belmont, one of my angles requires it.
“I want to leap onto the screen and grab it away”
You are much more tolerant than I am Winter.If I got my hands on the whip I would let the jockey experience what it feels like
After his workout today Tax is 50/50 to run.Gargan said the workout was ok but nothing special
Thanks for the update on Tax.
The old saying, “Don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see”
Hard to know what to make of this.Gargan likes to give Tax a lot of time between races.Seems like one of those situations where the owners want to run and the trainer isn’t 100% behind the idea
Don't forget to have at least one on your ticket from the Peter Pan!!!
