Thanks for that.

Wow! Regulators, rule writers deciding how trainers should train their horses is not something I'd be comfortable with.

What if the horse needs the air of a farther workout and...

Are we sure the rule reads a horse must work "exactly" a 1/2 mile. I've never seen a jurisdiction who's rules read that way. I have seen said horse must work "at least" a 1/2 mile.

Perhaps NYRA...

Bogus works exist. But a trainer can't just call one in. There would have to be other people involved. Not saying who. Could be any of several others.

Hot days in the North are much more problematic than Gulfstream.

The horses are treated differently at GP with electrolytes and salt licks.

I have an Express Bet account. When I click Replays & Results. Then choose to search by horse name. It comes right up. Pretty much wherever in Europe they run.

Hope that works.

Thanks Thomas.

I've actually already had a career as a Steward.

2013 to 2015 in California

2021 in Wyoming.

Always looking for opportunities to serve that fit into my Oaklawn schedule.

Could be right about Master.

I thought it was Walter.

I text occasionally with Dean Greenman, Walter's son.

SENORITA was pretty darn good. But IMO not nearly as good as RUBY & TAZ.

Zero chance they did that. Players would stage a full fledged riot. Think trash cans with fires burning.
