In a time where whales are an issue for handicappers and getting in those last second wagers, I'm sort of curious what the landscape would look like if there were no minimum payouts but instead...

I don't think they have the Rags number number yet, but it's being predicted to be a 7, which backs up the 98 Beyer.

There's no benefit to retiring a horse in good order in mid June given breeding season is 8 months away. Out of sight, out of mind for that length of time is even a detriment. The only reason he'd...

They're often running with injected joints too that absolutely can cripple them in their post-racing life.
