As it should be. It was pretty brazen of Justify's owners, who got the benefit of a secret hearing back in the day that saved their Santa Anita Derby win, wanted the courts to stop a public hearing...

By the way, it's extremely obvious here in Southern California that dirt racetracks are getting slower. If you went to Santa Anita in the 1980's, you'd regularly see cheap claimers go 21 3/5 to the...

It's a slightly different issue, but Hollywood Park had a procedure in the 1970's where a 15th horse could start outside the starting gate. I recall seeing a video of a race where they did it at...

My understanding was always what Vic said. If the gate doesn't open with the others, that's the ball game. The horse is a non-starter.

But it looks like NY has a different rule that permits the...

What's the excuse this time? Doesn't like to run on the lead? Had to give weight to those 3 year olds? Got caught in a vise between horses?

And again, 3 to 5! You could capitalize Citibank with...

The Preakness was run in June, not May, in 1945. Go back to 1930 and they ran it before the Derby. It's also been run at different distances if you go back far enough.

You're right. Indeed, most technically, trainers are supposed to be trying to win too.

In reality, of course, nobody ever enforces this except in the case of obvious stiff jobs, and I am not sure...

Actually, Spalding, the Hollywood Derby had been run on dirt and on turf prior to 1981, and had also been run later in the year than April. So you are being extremely selective here.

I think there are always savvy handicappers who can take advantage of suspected and actual doping.

That doesn't mean it isn't unfair to the other handicappers, though, just like if you can figure...

The Pennyslvania Derby and Hollywood Derby, among other 3 year old races, have been moved months. They still maintain stakes records. I see no need for asterisks.

Oh stop it. Mountainman's post was a clear preemptive statement that his several paragraphs must be the last word. Which is what people do when other people call BS on them.

I never said 100 percent. Though mathematically, if Canonero ran 1:54.00, the fastest 1:54 flat, and timing old videos is accurate, Secretariat could not have done it.

Spalding, a "classic" is just another horse race. At any rate, even they have been moved around if you go back long enough.

According to the Court of Appeal, the change came before the draw. This ruling preserves the CHRB's power to impose a double fee if a change occurs after the draw.

The CHRB Rule Book can't override a state statute. 19500 may be an awful statute. But the Court isn't allowed to ignore it.

Having looked at Section 19500 it is super clear- if the rider gets taken off prior to the scratch deadline, he can get his "mount fee" (a nominal amount) but not his "riding fee" (the percentage)....
