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!
That should never happen said kiddingly to just lead into my joke.
A Great close buddy friend called me at 6:45 PM on the first Saturday in May and said:
Dogs help! My chest is pounding with pain, nausea, dizzy, head throbbed. Can't stand up. Gotta come over and get me to the Emergency Room. What do you think?
Dogs (watching the gate load of the Kentucky Derby: I think you're going to die .

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!!
