As an on-again, off-again resident of the Land of Lincoln, it's my opinion that the Illinois Horseman's Association, or more accurately the ITHA has had a lot to do with the decline of racing in the...

Good one. Pretty much any horse that wins this "Da Cup" meets that criteria, with a $20M purse up for grabs

Last year's Triple Crown Darling?

Being a 3YO for another ten days, doesn't that make Maxfield this year's Triple Crown darling? Although, I must admit, 2020 has been a very long year, so it seems like last year.

I had a cheap...

Ain't that the truth.

A 77-1 shot Listen to Blue got taken down in the 3rd today at Del Mar. It certainly appeared the horse bumped the 4th finisher at the top of the stretch, but I don't see why...

Good question. Pretty flawed survey, though it's been around since 2004.

Nitro, I think you're off track here, pun intended. The take out is critical in determining the number of players who can stay afloat and support the game with a higher handle. When the pot is...

I was very surprised the race wasn't halted/recalled. I haven't seen it very often with thoroughbreds, so maybe most tracks don't plan for it, but you see it in harness racing all the time. There...

I agree that the stats for Baffert indicate his ponies are not just running on hay, oats and water. Naturally, it doesn't prove anything, but reading between the lines it should give everyone pause....

The Twinspires analysts were repeatedly expressing their amazement at the odds of Money Moves, but personally I understood some of the logic of liking that horse. Lightly raced with three starts,...

My handle on Twinspires is 1/50th of what it was three years ago. The "new" classic (how stupid does that sound?) is awful, and I think the brain trust there at TS is now supporting four or five...

Hong Kong will probably be the last circuit standing, in what appears to be a grim future for the sport. I've been thinking for years that economic decline would turn North American racing closer to...

It's sad, for those of us old enough to remember racing back in the '80s. I agree with Mr. Haskin that the model that was adopted for the game has turned out badly, though some of what has...

anything but rosy

My two cents - the long term outlook is pretty bleak, especially for the smaller operators that had to sit on the sidelines for a few months. Santa Anita's re-opening was disappointing - with mostly...

A rather sad attitude for the bloke who manages this forum.

I'm still having the problem with Chrome, but it may be due to a plugin I've installed. Using Firefox (with no add ons) I'm able to get the old Classic menu working again. But when that goes away...

I've had an account on Twinspires going back to the Winticket days. The classic interface was fine, and the free BRIS PPs a nice perk.

A little over a year ago when they changed the interface I...
