Ended on a High Note..for sure..
But is it over...
Who won the Derby?..
Mr P / Nor Dancer
That was easy..
Starting with message 121 in this thread I scored the angles that worked and the ones that didn't
work for the Belmont stakes this year, for those interested in both performance angles and pedigree
scoring from placements in a pedigree that work for the belmont.
Baffert's Lawyers will keep it in the courts for years .
Spectacular Stuff Smartyslew..for sure
I don’t know Rob.I saw an interview with one of Baffert’s lawyers and got the feeling he got his law degree at Trump University
I think it will be in Mitch's State with selected Trump Judges
I hope not, but who can you trust in this world we live in ..

Well we cannot ensure justice for this race.....but at this point Baffert's reputation, both nationally and internationally has been tarnished and which he deserves.
Linda Rice still had an entry in the True North, and Flagstff, who's trainer Sadler was supposed to be under probabation for his 3 drug positives in 2019, and which he violated in Sept 2020 (which we didn't hear about unitl May 2021) by administering bisphosponates to Flagstaff, also had a horse in the True North.
These people are still allowed to make hundreds of thousands of $$. This would not happen in the majority of non-U.S. racing jurisdictions across the planet.
At any rate, we can be part of the problem or part of the solution, and the former does nothing good for the horses. Yes, yawn-yawn-yawn-yawn, we all know that U.S. racing is tainted, but I will keep speaking out .....not for my wagers but for the horses who deserve better.
I actually don't mind being the broken record because I'm advocating for those who cannot speak up for themselves.
I agree with you completely.It looks like the feds getting involved has lit a fire under the powers that be in US racing.It was still great to watch the Oaks and the Derby from Epsom.Totally different product than we get over here.We have Baffert,Sadler.Servis and Navarro while Europe has O’ Brien,Gosden,Stoute,Appleby,Fabre…etc
I ended up skipping it after I got roped into some “family obligations”. I had the first three lol but that was a two horse race. I’m glad I didn’t but I toyed with wheeling a super...a $1 ticket on Rom/EQ/HRC-same-same-KA, Bour, RYW and Over would have only cost $24. It paid $60 lol.
The summer races should be interesting this year!
