Gerh said...It looks like the feds getting involved has lit a fire under the powers that be in US racing
They ain't seen nothin' yet.
When USADA takes over, hopefully things will change a whole lot. That won't happen til Jan 2022 so I won't be "wagering" into US racing til I see it happen.
If nothing major happens during 2022, I'm out for good
Hot Rod Charlie ran a monster of a race in defeat. Let's look at the fractions and final times for every horse in the field... HRC ran the distance in 2:27.27. Using the last 2 TC winners, he was faster than Justify but slower than American Pharoah. France Go De Ina's times are excluded because he was a DNF.
|06/05/2021 - Belmont Park Race 11|
|Belmont Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets|
|Running Time: 2:27.11|
|1 1/2 Miles Dirt|
Did it look like Hot Rod Charlie switched to wrong lead as he did in his last 2?
Never mind I was thinking the Million dollar Cull was the 8, he was the 6.
the million dollar cull WAS the 8 (overtook)
It's amazing how many million dollar horses don't run well. It's like an unlucky purchase price or something LOL
In 327 days we do this all over again!!
Mandaloun.....2021 Kentucky Derby Champion!!

Off topic, i read the Chicago Bears are looking into buying Arlington Park for a possible stadium build ala Hollywood Park, LA.
A classic the land is worth more than the venue. Think they buy??
RE: Arlington Race Track for sale
I never paid much attention or bet this track on a knowledgeable way, save their big day.
The parties interested, Dah Bears..a former prez of the track; and in the City of Chicago blessing involvement from a tax incentive or give back, and no Casino or plans for one perhaps (support racing and revenue operating streams add hotel, entertainment, living quarters..
For sure as is, the track alone is not the jewel in the deal.
The article purports Dah Bears may be in the hunt for reasons of initiating to keep their present lease extended and modify existing stadium.
My personal Chicago answer is I'll go with the buyer who will give us/Chief & Dogs each 2 no show jobs.
