The man definately has compiled a stable of who's who on and off the track.
Never knew he had that many big names!
Dogs of Syracuse , where is the data showing him owning a piece of all of these T'breds.
Is he the head of or owner of Head of Plains Partners or Cleary Stables, China Horse Club,
I know he has partnered with Heads of Plains or owned them, and they own Sy Dog.
My crystal dog bowl has me thinking:
Doug O'Neill colt
And scrutiny of a colt that will emerge on the radar list due to the inheritance of a colt that Baffert forfeited.
Long shot jockey Kent D.
And a Japanese entry.
Watch Dog memo: Trainers will toss and turn 14 days before and Derby eve; hoping their runners' advanced medication does duly leave.
Hi Smarty: The above data on Sol Kumin interests is from Wikipedia. And yes in some cases not fully owned, yet not trival in the data mining context.
Dogs...where is SY DOG at in the future wagers? Can't seem to find him.
Odds gotta be +100/1?
Thoughts on Annapolis from Pletchers barn. A friend of mine is thinking about plunking a few dineros on him.
Annapolis is like SY Dog: 2 for 2 and 2nd race off their maiden a win on grass.
Questionable their transition to dirt. Could go either way...or late in campaign.
By War Front. I was looking for this sire's potential 3 y o s
Once Jan 2022 rolls around T Crown official nominations will provide more surfaced names.
More on Annapolis...Pletcher. Breeder is Owner and as owner never had big time G-er..
But, Irad Jr. rode twice for his 2 for 2 wins at 8.5 fl lawn jobs.
Todd's 1st call Johnny V is out West now. So Irad is their hopeful campaign jock.
Indicator will be how long Irad Ortiz Jr stays with colt as his choice Derby mount in latter day gates.
War Front has my attention and the breeder/owner kept the yearling/colt as a keeper and sent him to Pletcher.
Would need Cinderella campaign to hit a slot in Derby.
Todd usually finds a Derby points (Win) if the colt makes it that far. Todd has a bucket of Tampa Bay Derby trophy wins and yet they don't make a dent in the Derby cash ticket payouts.
Irad is focused this year for his 1st Derby win horse.
Decided this would go into 2022.
In times past; checkered drug or death in sports stories were about prize fighters, major league sports figures, even world competition bicycle events.
Racing currently has a trainer convicted and soon deported.
Crimes against the public in every sector; business, government, entertainment and religion are no longer masked internally by any group. And prosecution takes place in courts with judicial sentencing.
No longer suspensions or cover up.
Yet, Bob Baffert has not committed a criminal act.
Didn't know where to post this but figured I'd put to your name.
Your "guy" RAM is racing today at Oaklawn. Race 9, Pointsetta Stakes
Hey!; hadn't thought about RAM since he didn't produce a board spot in last year's Preakness.
I still remember you posting his trainer, D-Wayno, being interviewed at Oaklawn.
Oaklawn does it right.
:) As Wayne would say, thank you darling; what are you doing after the 9th?
